Skip to comments.Why Obamas Speech Had A Somber Tone
Posted on 01/20/2009 12:57:51 PM PST by jdsteel
Humility, gratitude and sacrifice. From his first words, Barack Obama let us know that even on a day so bright he was not blinded. Not by the cloud of witnesses in front of him. Not by the lights of cameras sending his words across the planet. That he was willing to sound so somber on his day of celebration tells us many things at once. At a time of scarcity, do not waste opportunities. When the world is watching and willing to follow, tell them where you want to take them. And above all tell the truth. (Read Obama's Inaugural Address.)

Why?? It’s the first real job the bastard has ever had and he is scared sh-tless that Soros Schwartz) will find out!
The teleprompter was broken?
Who wrote this? Sasha Obama?
Excuses as usual.
“Humility, gratitude and sacrifice”
I usually think of him as,
Arrogance, abandonment and stealing credit away from others.
His white liberal believers think he is the “community organizer” early in his book, but overlook how he admittedly transcended that, to the height of heights, a Chicago crook manipulating resentment and white liberal self-admiration.
Please give us the (Mega Barf alert)
The MSM is going into crisis mode trying to convince everyone who watched this speech that it wasn’t REALLY a brief, lackluster, completely forgettable address.
Good luck with that.
I do not want to click on the link and give Time a viewing hit. Who is the writer of this incredibly stupid article?
0bama, being a liberal, has no intention of telling people the truth.
If any of them did that, they wouldn’t see the insides of any halls of power, ever, because their goals are not acceptable to over 60% of the population.
Though, with this election, we saw some “slipping of the veil”, but most of his sycophants, when asked, didn’t see it, or deny it happened.
And I quote: “I wonder what he meant when he said 57 states.”
Wow, what’s the over/under on media knee pads for the next four years?
Obama’s speech was mostly generic junk that could have been given by any politician, Left or Right. Except:
His reference to maintaining America’s greatness when everybody knows that liberals think America needs to be diminished.
Keeping the government programs that work and ditching the ones that don’t. L-O-L I’d love to hear his definition of what works.
Ouch. He admits that?
I don’t know, but I really hate it when folks in the MSM use biblical references, without even knowing where they come from.
All the Wall Street financial companies rate kneepads as a "buy".

“Here comes the spin again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion”
“Ouch. He admits that?”
Implicitly. He writes about his powers to convince, and how he can use “hope” and “change” to get people to follow him, and how he senses people project their emotional needs on him.
Openly, he did that. Actually, he was very perceptive and correct.
Should he have admitted that? We’ll see.
You know, Conservative’s first intuition is to take a pass on books written by the left. IMO< that is a big mistake. This is a very revealing comment.
You also mentioned him rising to something like a crime figure in his own words. Was that part in there too?
