Did I like Obama's speech? Uh, no. I mean, I like the guy and all, but there was no bloviating, no, as my friend puts it, "soaring rhetoric."

To quote old school Link from the classic Legend of Zelda cartoons, "Well, excuuuuuuse me, princess," but I like soaring rhetoric. I LIKE meandering diatribes about "progress" and the pursuit of happiness in modern day America. I like all that bull crap, and quite frankly, Obama didn't deliver.

What he DID have to say though was a whole lotta, America needs to get out of this financial crisis, and yada yada yada, okay, alright, okay, so when are we going to get to the fireworks factory already?

I mean, I'm not doubting that Barack H. Obama is gonna do a good job in office. I mean, he's only been in there for like, what, an hour, and he already changed the law on stem cell research, women paychecks, and shutting down G-ton-a-mo Bay. But I gotta tell ya, I was looking forward to hearing old school Obama talk about change and growth and all that smooth jazz, but what we got instead was new-school Obama, talking about the future. Bah, bring back Sha-na-na!

Obama is smooookin'

I know, I was just messing with the guy. I still like him, and I even thought his speech was pretty okay. I just like to talk, talk, talk. Thanks for the comment

I know his speech was a bit disappointing to some but I'm thankful that for once, a politician put aside the rhetoric and just told it like it is. He basically said, look, we've got issues, I'm here to do things differently, let's get this show started!
