According to the times, the American debate needs a sort of ‘makeover’ and is fairly critical against the speeches given out by politicians, most noticing Barack Obama.
there are statements about the speech being a ”thankless assignment” which ”…is usually greeted with indifference or derision.”
The Financial Times further this to say the speech ”was with an impassioned appeal to resist the scummy tide of demonisation, that Mr Obama closed his last State of the Union speech, and thus his political career.”
When reading about President Obama’s final state speech, in your view, what did you make of Obama’s farewell speech? Did he resist speaking about ‘the scummy tide of demonisation’ efficiently? What more do you think Obama could have done for the world of American Politics?
