At his final press conference of 2016, President Obama gave himself a giant pat on the back.
“Almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago,” he said.
“In other words, by so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than when we started. It is a situation that I am proud to leave for my successor, and it’s thanks to the American people.”
“The hard work you put in and the sacrifices that you made for your families and communities, the businesses that you started or invested in and the way you looked out for one another,” he added, “and I cannot be prouder to be your president.”
Wow! Is this guy full of himself or what?!

He oddly all but named Russian President Vladimir Putin as behind Moscow’s alleged attempts to meddle in the US election, vowing retaliation for the moves and defending himself against criticism his administration acted too slowly.
Without directly answering whether Putin ordered up the cyberactivity that US intelligence says was meant to bolster Donald Trump, Obama described government in Russia as tightly controlled by the man at the top.
With everyone soooo serious lately – how about a little comic relief? The Flipside with Michael Loftus makes fun of Joseph Clancy, the head of the secret service. This is one of the funniest skits I have ever seen. With Barack Obama heading out the door, maybe the Secret Service will finally get their act together! If not, Donald Trump will have to say, “You’re Fired!”
