Presidential Farewell Addresses


In doing a little research I learned that up to the present, the only  US president to deliver his farewell address to the nation outside of Washington was George HW Bush, who gave his address at West Point. I started going back for some photos of past farewell addresses of recent presidents. With the exception of Bush the elder, farewell addresses below were given from the White House.

Much like his first acceptance speech in Denver (Greek columns and all), This was a tribute to himself.

Maybe it was a tribute to the heartland of America, flyover country, getting outside the Beltway and putting some distance from those coastal elites. Farewells from the White House are so perfunctory and boring.
