Remember when Obama stumbled during the oath? It was kinda funny. Put yourself in Obama’s shoes. I would have stumbled over my words and probably wet myself.
I’m probably going to sound mean with this next statement, but I would have rather heard another poem from Maya Angelou this year. In my opinion, Elizabeth Alexander’s poem was not very good.
Rick Warren said a good prayer (text here). I was with a group of kids at the middle school during that segment. Several of them said “amen” with him. That sounded so good it gave me chills. For the benediction, Joseph Lowery’s quote from “Lift Every Voice And Sing” was nice but he probably should have left off the corny ending.
At the end of Obama’s speech, WBAL pops up lottery numbers. Boy that was a smart move. Yeah, lottery numbers are right up there with an inauguration speech. It had to be a mistake.
Could you have surgically removed the smile from Joe Biden’s face today? And boy did he looked like he was having fun on the parade route. For that moment I was happy he was from Delaware.
That’s all I’ve got right now.
