Obama’s inaugural address…

If you didn’t listen to Obama’s inaugural address, here’s a link:

I didn’t think it was a very good speech, and it wasn’t delivered as well as  His Oneness has done previously.  For one thing, some of it was simply nonsensical, for example, saying that science would be welcomed back, when Obama and most of his Cabinet are fervent glimate change enthusiasts absent any scientific evidence that it’s manmade.

But what struck me was that when His Oneness said “we”, he meant the government, not the American people.  He believes we the people are the problem, and his government will fix us, whether we like it or not.

I’ll put up another post with some links for others’ views on The Speech, but in the meantime I’ve got a greenhouse and well below freezing weather to worry about.
