We can all agree (for once) that President Barack Obama’s inauguration speech was no thriller. If anything, it was a downer.
It had to be. One minute he was president-elect; next minute, My Gawd! he was President! The real deal. The gloves had to come off. The truth had to be told. What an awakening this must have been, to realize that the party is over, the work begins. That is sobering! It’s doubtful that any time soon he’ll be showing up on TV with Oprah Winfrey, or sharing dance steps with Ellen DeGeneres.
From now on those photo-ops will show him in the company of world leaders, some who wish us well, many who wish us harm.
There’s a new sheriff in town and he won’t be smiling.Details
