A #ThrowbackThursday moment in honor of President Obama. Originally posted on inauguration day, January 20, 2009. That day I was very proud to say I was an American. I wish I could get that feeling back. Maybe in four years I will. Maybe I’ll have a few laughs during that time. Until then I’ll slog on…
This is just one of many insightful, motivational statements the new President of the United States made today as he was officially sworn into office.
To Bush I say: It was a long, painful eight years. Good riddance.
To Obama I say: I look forward to the next four years; and if those go okay, maybe we’ll see another four
In Bush’s defense I must say he seemed to be looking pretty solemn in his last days as Prez. I often thought he was having regrets about stuff he had done or should have done during his term. In my own mind I consider him the “woulda, coulda, shoulda but didn’t” president.
I’d be foolish if I didn’t say us Americans have a long, hard road ahead of us. We do. But I believe that we finally have the right individual to lead us into a much brighter, prosperous future.
Today is a day I am so proud to say I am an AMERICAN!
