On November 8, 2008 the United States Of America made history, we elected the first African American President. This presidency was going to benefit everyone in the country. We, as Americans never thought this would happen, until the electoral college pronounced him President of the United States of America. Many people have different opinions about his presidency. People who are less fortunate enjoyed this presidency because it provided them with free affordable care. Obama created opportunities for people who do not usually have them. Obama has done so much for the military during his presidency, he ended the Iraq war ,made orders to have Osama Bin Laden captured and killed, and he dropped the homeless veteran percent by 50 percent. Obama was the reason that the auto industry is still running, and he boosted the fuel efficiency in cars. During the course of both of his terms Obama has created an amazing reputation and has left some big shoes to fill.

During the election of 2016, the democratic party was inspired by the candidate, Hillary Clinton, many Americans think that it would be amazing to make history two elections in a row. The election of 2008, and 2012, the first Colored President, and in 2016 we thought that Hillary Clinton would win. Although the democratic party was not happy with the outcome of the election, we are more confident that Obama has moved on, proudly.

As a country we have benefited greatly in the last eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency, we are going to miss him. We are excited that him and his family are able to come out of the white house with having a wonderful “victory.” As a whole we will miss all of the wonderful things he has benefited our country with. We are so grateful to have been blessed with Obama’s presidency but we are excited to move forward in what is.
