Let the glorious news be spread, The Bush Administration now is dead!

I was going to write an entire joyous piece about how happy I am that Bush is no longer my Commander in Chief, but I'm going to let the following video say it for me.

I watched the inaugeration of the first President that has thrilled me with a speech that I can ever remember. Some choice bits that garnered applause from the folks I watched it with at the post celebratory event..

"Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.

This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions -- that time has surely passed."

Or this..

" Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short, for they have forgotten what this country has already done, what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose and necessity to courage.

What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them, that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long, no longer apply.

The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified.

Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end.

And those of us who manage the public's knowledge will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government."

And my favorite part:

"As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals.

Our founding fathers faced with perils that we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations.

Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake."

Goodnght, everyone. I'll be celebrating a commander in chief I feel safe putting the heart of America in the hands of.

There's a long winter ahead, AS. The fundamental problem with America's economy is that people are living beyond their means, and Obama bringing about his bizarre combination of citizen reassurance coupled with encouraging people to engage in self-worship is not what the country needs. What sacrifices do so many Americans of our generation know? This is a cult of personality to make people feel good about themselves, and will have little effect on practical changes to further civilization. Just remember, I warned ya this administration was going to be shit! mwahaha

-LT Nixon the "clinger"

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss... More optional, unecessary wars.
Someone to research: Samantha Power, a proponent of a form of imperialism known as "internationalism".
"Progressives", although they deny it, love to use the military as a billy club to enforce foreign policy just like the "conservatives" do.
