Obama is too civil.

He’s an example of an ineffective approach.

Of the pinnacle of the last generation of statesmen.

His farewell address is a masterpiece of diplomatic speech. Of taking a calm and reasoned approach and of warning of pending dangers.

It won’t convince anyone who doesn’t already agree with him.

Statesmen are no longer effective.

We need influencers.

People that use all the mind tricks that they can.

Politicians who can use their words to inspire emotions.

Individuals who can use words as a weapon.

Bernie and Trump are both examples of that.

But, the side of reason doesn’t have enough of these.

Who is like that on the side of reason?
