Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States of America

Wow, what a day! Unless you've been living under a rock, you all know that Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States. History is made today, as Americans welcome their first African American president.

Did you watch Obama's inauguration? (I watched most of it, then had to leave for an appointment, which I just got back from) What's up with Chief Justice Roberts fumbling of the oath. I <3 Aretha Franklin's awesome hat!

The economy isn't THAT bad.. I'm doing alright :)

"It amazes me that there are still people sticking up for Bush and his cronies after what has happened to our country since they took over."

What's happened to our country that has been so bad? A failing economy in his last year in office? Hmm, I guess that's about it. Let's not forget that our economy was pretty strong up until 2008, and that's after the market crashed in 2001 after TERRORISTS ATTACKED OUR COUNTRY!

It amazes me that there are still people out there blaming Bush for everything, as if 1 man has single handedly ruined the lives of everyone. Lets not forget that the House and Congress also make decisions and that the congress was Democrat controlled during these economic woes.

"May I remind the Bush haters, that he was voted into office, twice, by the majority of Americans.."

Which is why this was such an exciting race. It actually restored some of my faith in this country that they could see past the color of a candidate's skin and vote for a person that actually wants to change "business as usual". It amazes me that there are still people sticking up for Bush and his cronies after what has happened to our country since they took over.

President Obama has a long road ahead of him and I hope he gets the support he needs from his country and its people to turn things around. It's not going to be an easy job, considering the mess we're in.

It matters to Americans.
I work with two people from Africa. They don't get the fuss over his skin colour because so many of the presidents (or dictators) in Africa have been black. It really all depends on your perspective. It's a bit arrogant to say that this is a great day for hummanity. There are other countries besides the US, don't forget.
