While my boys were getting flu shots today, Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as President of the United States.
12:20 PM ET: Good strong speech.
1:00 PM ET: As the former president bush's helicopter was leaving Washington. A chorus from the crowd still gathered on the National Mall could be heard singing
"nana na naaa, nana na naaa, hey hey, good bye"The Republicans are on the television saying how George W. Bush will be remembered as a better president in history than his current approval rate. His approval rate has been at historical lows in the low 20's whereas Bill Clinton left with numbers in the 50%. I believe that George W. Bush will be remembered as a worse president. An incompetent, incoherent leader with no imagination beyond his own political beliefs and ambitions.
Best part of Obama's speach:
For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus - and non-believers.
Change has truly come to United States. Forget the nuclear codes, forget the oath, the ceremony, the transition to power is complete. Whitehouse.gov is now branded with the Barack Obama logos. It even has a new blog.
Back to work.
