Listening to his speech. Bring it home Mr. President.
“We will restore science to its rightful place.” Woo-hoo! (And the arts? Don’t forget us, please.)
That’s Buddy watching with me, by the way.
Ah, I like this part about the choice between our safety and our ideals. “Our power alone does not protect us. Nor does it allow us to do as we please.”
12:26pm. Oh. Check it out and be ready to tear up for the billionth time. The new Whitehouse page.
12:28pm. Haha. Someone on Facebook posted, Will President Obama end his speech by pointing to Bush and Cheney and say “Now, arrest those two”?
12:29pm. You know how NPR reporters always talk in NPR voice? Poets always read poems in the exact same way. She’s talking in poet voice.
12:40pm. Sigh. so, what happens now? Any other planned events?
12:50pm. I just learned it was Roberts who flubbed the lines, not Obama, who someone said he looked like he was going to chuckle. When’s the parade?!
12:57pm. I want to be President! I actually quickly thought it through, if I had lived my life differently, and even if I had, I would not have won. I would have lost to Obama, and I would have lost to Bush before that … so, I can live on without regret.
1:04pm. But maybe Obama will give me a job.
