Presidential speeches get taken seriously and remembered. It is the best form of communication between the leader of the highest office and the citizens. Presidential speeches are usually carefully drafted with help from advisors and sometimes speechwriters to deliver a clear, concise message.
The president’s Independence Day speech from Mount Rushmore left me in a low mood. I felt somewhat depressed afterward.
I have served in the United States Armed Forces and always considered myself to be a good citizen. The president’s speech left me feeling as if I might be a traitor to my country and my fellow citizens.
I am a Democrat and do not agree with all of his ideas but remain open to debate if this is still a democracy. The GOP leadership refused to work with Obama’s Administration for eight years.
Let us all hope his next executive order is not to send Democrats to re-education camps.
