      Last night I watched the whole ceremony in Tuscon broadcast on PBS. I was impressed by all those who spoke. Especially by the invocation given by the Mexican/Native American (Yaki) Phd from the U of Az.  And then I was totally impressed with President Obama's speech. Couldn't help but feel emotional for many, many reasons. For me, the uglyliest type of politics reached a head under Bush/Cheney.  I thought Obama gave the best presidential address  in decades st least. I am totally in agreement with everything he so eloquently said.

I am totally in agreement with everything he so eloquently said. Sure their are problems and faults with government. But no where near what Pallin and the Tea Party extremists seem to believe. The economy will gradually improve. 90 percent of Americans want peace , good fellowship and a decent life for themselves and their families. A small (but significant0 group of right wing hate driven folks are obsessed with guns and "action"  Obama did a fantastic job of putting the devisive political state of this country in proper perspective.

              haha  I actually am liking his behavior lately and now that I  know how he worked his way up from humble beginnings (me too)  I respect him even more. It is awkward for him though.  Ya I'm not much of a crier, but I did get all watery eyed watching the ceremony for the victims. And I thought Obama was great.
