Quick Thoughts on the Inauguration

Was happy that in the invocation Rev. Warren distinctly invoked the name of Jesus.

Love 21 gun salutes.

Surprised President Obama flubbed the oath…as did Chief Justice, John Roberts, Jr.

Think President Obama’s speech was moderate. Expected something more soaring and memorable. He is an eloquent speaker.

Thought the first parts of the benediction were beautiful: the last, pitiful and insulting, not at all appropriate for prayer at the inauguration of our president.

“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right,” Rev. Lowery said.

Was saddened to hear that ex-president Bush was jeered as he mounted the platform. Must we show such little class?

Barack Obama is now my president. I wish him success in honorably and faithfully leading our country.
