I am happy to see that our country has come so far as to elect an African American president. It means that the way people think really can change, and that is indeed a historic event.
But something about this whole thing seems odd.
Did I miss something, or isn't it usually customary to wait until someone actually does something before we start singing their praises?
That's how it works in the normal world atleast. But in politics that doesn't seem to matter.
So Obama made a bunch of large and grand promises. Ok, doesn't every politician? Let's see what he actually does before we start calling him the savior of the country.
This has nothing to do with who I voted for (which will continue to remain unknown).
And Robbie, I completely agree with you on the money pit that is this inauguration. To be spending the kind of money something like this event must cost while the economy is crumbling seems just plain dumb.
On the radio I heard that there will be more celebrities in attendance for this inauguration than any other in history. If anything I think that is a warning sign! Celebrities don't really have a long history of making good choices...
But, I am excited to see what Obama and his staff members do. They talked the talk, now lets see if they can walk the walk. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
And I have to be honest (at risk of offending some), I'm glad to see Bush go. Bless his heart he looks like he aged 50 years since he's been in office. I guess having the weight of the country on your shoulders will do that to you. He needs to go take a long vacation and just relax for a while. I truly admire anyone that actually wants to be President.
On another note, Jimmy started school today and I'm so excited! Not really for him to be in school. But he has to wake up early 2 days a week, so that means I have someone to wake up with. It just makes getting up so much easier for me when I don't have to tip toe around in the darkness like a mouse. This morning I turned on the lights and turned on some music. I'm much more awake because of it.
Waiting for James to arrive!
