Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to everyone!
With the new year coming to a close, and the reality setting in that President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be leaving office in just a month, the holiday season couldn’t have come sooner.
With a lot of “lasts” taking place, this holiday weekend we got the final annual holiday message from POTUS & FLOTUS, which always brings a smile to our face. Though it was the last one, these two powerful figures delivered a strong message once again.
“Together, we fought our way back from the worst recession in 80 years, and got unemployment to a nine-year low,” POTUS proudly said. “We secured health insurance for another twenty million Americans, and new protections for folks who already had insurance. We made America more respected around the world, took on the mantle of leadership in the fight to protect this planet for our kids, and much, much more.”
Always gracious, Barack closed with a thankful message to everyone listening. “The greatest gift that Michelle and I have received over the last eight years has been the honor of serving as your President and First Lady.”
Watch their full message below, and from the Live Civil team, we wish everyone a happy holiday!
