Did you watch? We did...and I hope that the grandsons got to watch at school. This is one of those historic moments that we remember throughout our lives and can tell you where we were when it happened. I am hopeful for the future because of some of the things President Obama has said and done between his election and this historic day. I am hopeful that he will govern from the center and not cater to those on the far left who want welfare for all and appeasement at the expense of defense. He made a lot of promises during the campaign and I think he now knows that he cannot fulfill most of them. I believe that he is a very smart man and a compassionate man. I truly hope we are on that road to you telling me "I told you so."
I hope you'll also take the time to thank President George W. Bush. I know there are a lot of Bush haters (those previously mentioned far left types), but the man kept us safe at a time when Americans were put in great danger on their own soil. He put his own reputation aside and made the tough decisions when they were required. He is not the demon in the economy mess...remember those Democrats who have controlled Congress for the last two years? I was appalled after the election when I saw voters being queried about who makes decisions in Congress and which party had the majority...Most of them put the blame squarely on President Bush and the Republicans when most of it belongs on the back of the Democratic leaders in Congress.
