Re: Official Inauguration Day Thread

I watched the speech and paid more attention to his demeanor and tone than I did to the words. His body language, facial expressions and tone of voice were very serious and sobering, speaking to the immense amount of work ahead of us. But at the same time he stood up with his shoulders back and chest out, you could tell he feels confident.

I voted for McCain and preferred his ideas to Obama's in many instances, but I'm of the mind that once the decision is made, it's time to fall in line. I'm behind him and rooting for him as I'm sure all of you are too, but I'm also willing to give his policies a chance. While I disagreed with a lot of it, the time for debating is passed, it's time for him to execute and I'm watching hopefully to see that it turns out well.

I was impressed with him and proud to have him as my president.

Work, I thought we could quit work and Obama would provide us shelter, food, health care and an education.

That was cool! Two million people really don't take up much room considering.

Come on, he's already the Gun Salesman of the Year....give him more time, I'm sure we'll eventually rename a State after him.

The expectations were pretty absurd. While no one knew exactly what they wanted to hear, they wanted to hear it and then immediately proclaim "That's even better than the Gettysburg Address."

As someone from Gettysburg, I can tell you that the people who heard the original (and there weren't many, a lot less than two million or whatever) didn't immediately turn to each other and proclaim, "we've just witnessed the greatest speech in American History!" I guess my point being we need some time for perspective.

I thought Obama's speech was solid, appropriately cognizant of the difficulty the country is facing, with just enough uplift to leave us not feeling hopeless.

I think if Obama goes onto be a great president, we'll go back and cherry pick lines from yesterday's speech and act like it was great and timeless all along. If he is mediocre, well, then his speech will fade into the ether like those of most of the presidents who came before him.

I thought it odd...my sister said the same thing.
In any case, the party for O has changed course and it all counts from here. Many promises made. We'll see how the fulfillment goes.
I for one am not an O'Bama advocate, but like Schneed and many more wish him success as I am an American first, and it will benefit me as well if he is successful

Re: Official Inauguration Day Thread

I think my expectations were simply too high. I wanted him to deliver memorable words like "I have a dream" and was quite disappointed when none of his words stuck. Maybe if I watch the speech after some time has passed I might see things differently.

Anywho, I like the fact that he made it easier for citizens to request government documents through Freedom of Information Act, instructed the military to close gitmo and ordered a review of all the cases of detainees on his first day.

It sure beats the measly 300,000 that 'W' drew the last time around.

Good song by the way.

Re: Official Inauguration Day Thread

I hear he froze the pay of his staff and banned them from lobbying for the next five years. If he keeps that up I might start to like the blessed one. I don't think anyone can live up to the hype that everyone is entrusting him with. It's sad to see that they place so much trust in a politician and less so on themselves. I'll give him a shot though.
