So I watched Obama's last press conference on Fox News

Obama spoke for an hour.  H managed not to say anything of substance in all that time.  Obama is a master of the modern political speak, smooth words, motherhood and apple pie, nothing anyone can disagree with, but never a number, never a fact, never a promise of real action.  Pablum, meaningless pablum.  And that is all we have gotten out him for the last eight years. 
   Politicians spoke better in the old days.  "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." " The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."   "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."  "We shall fight them on the beaches, we shall fight them on the landing grounds... We shall never surrender."  In eight years Obama never said anything in that class.  
   Trump is a better public speaker than Obama.  He can stir the emotions of the crowd, and talk about concrete things, a wall, a tariff, taxes.  After listening to Trump, there is no question in anyone's mind where Trump is coming from and where he wants to go.
