Obama's Inaugural speech

6 posts in this topic

President Obama's second inaugural speech, highly anticipated at a time of great partisan polarization, has entered history. And it is likely to be remembered more as a call to action for the president's agenda than a call to national unity.

Still, Mr. Obama began his 15-minute address Monday with an emphasis on America's founding document, the Constitution, and the collective strength it lends a nation that values its exceptional status in the world.

"America's possibilities are limitless, for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands: youth and drive; diversity and openness; an endless capacity for risk and a gift for reinvention," Obama said, addressing the crowded National Mall and TV viewers around the nation and world.

"My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it -- so long as we seize it together."

But in a possible preview of the State of the Union address that the reelected and thus emboldened president will deliver on Feb. 12, Obama made pointed references to a second-term policy agenda that is sure to raise hackles among his political opponents. He issued a call to action on climate change, women's rights, immigration, voting rights, gay rights, and gun control.

Let me pick something out of this article that might surprise you...

"The president's second term represents a fresh start when it comes to dealing with the great challenges of our day; particularly, the transcendent challenge of unsustainable federal spending and debt," Senator McConnell said. "Republicans are eager to work with the president on achieving this common goal, and we firmly believe that divided government provides the perfect opportunity to do so. Together, there is much we can achieve."

To those that say we are just paranoid for thinking they are trying to divide the nation, before taking away our constitution rights. Senator McConnell basically stated that is what they were planned all along. They are dividing the nation and then they are going to conquer it with seductive words so we give up our freedoms for their temporary safeties.

Either it was incredibly poor wording on the Senators part... or we are in for some extremely bad times ahead...

I'm thinking a slip of the tongue is more likely than some evil plot.

Senator idiot-for-brains has zero intention of working with Obama or in any bi-partisan way. Until you understand that, you are living in the bubble.

So Senator idiot-for-brains won't work with our brainless President. Which is preferable idiot-for-brains or no brains? Hmmm... that is a tough one.
