Welcome President Obama

I just watched the swearing in and Obama's address. All I can say is....wow.

It was awesome!!! I loved the poem, too.

From the DailyKos...

I, Chief Justice John Roberts do solemnly swear,
That I royally fracked up trying to administer the presidential Oath of Office from memory.
That I embarrassed myself and the nation by getting something so simple---something memorized by every boy and girl in, like, second grade---so excruciatingly wrong.
And, in so doing, came within a butt hair of accidentally making Sasha Obama President of the United States.
Not that that would necessarily be a bad thing,
But you have to admit juggling first grade and the presidency might be a bit much for a seven year old.

But I digress.

Most important, I do solemnly swear that four years from now,
When I'm swearing in Barack Obama for a second term,
In fact, any time I'm swearing anybody in for anything,
Whether it's President of the United States or notary public,
I will execute the...no, wait!...I will faithfully execute the Herculean task of doing what Justice John Paul Stevens had the good sense to do, given the gravity of the moment,
By bringing an index card---which I can get a whole pack of for a buck over at The Dollar Store,
On which I will have scribbled, legibly, the words to the Oath of Office.

So that I don't frack up again, unnecessarily reminding the world once more that I am an appointee of former President Bush.
So help me God.

Watched it too. And after the it too.

I thought it was very original when he and his wife got out of the car way sooner then they were suppose to take that long walk. But I bet the secret service men were having fits.

It's not often that any of us get to see our values live. Our grandchildren have never known life without the internet. Our children never saw the "whites only" signs. Next? May our great grandchildren never know that an American can have many different body shapes, colors, beliefs, etc. Long live our values.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near
future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
