They Are the Change They've Been Waiting For
What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility — a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.
This is the price and the promise of citizenship.
-Excerpt from Obama's inaugural speech
Yup.....a new era of responsible citizenship has begun....
Is this the big change and "hope" we've all been waiting for?...."just words"
Dumpster diving into the past for some positive plagiarism- in a good way.
And the era of divisiveness has ended:
Some of Mr. Obama’s supporters booed and taunted Mr. Bush when he emerged from the Capitol to take his place on stage, at one point singing, “Nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, hey, goodbye.” By day’s end, Mr. Bush had landed in Texas, where he defended his presidency and declared that he was “coming home with my head held high.”
Seems the Obamabots failed to get that memo on civility and "coming together" (White House website failed on that as well):
This, however, is a good gesture:
