DOL Sorry to burst your bubble of fantasy.

"Great speeches"

Maybe I was listening to a different inauguration.

Joseph Lowery says:
"and when white will embrace what is right."
You call this unity.

Why did Rev Lowery not kvell about this historic day?
Why bring up the past?
When 52% of White America votes for the African American why is that in itself not right?

DOL, I, as many of my fellow Americans, pray that Mr. Obama should succeed as President, but, unfortunately, I am already disillusioned for the following reasons:

1. President Barack Obama urged Israel on Thursday to open its borders with Gaza. Shouldn’t this decision rest with Israel and not with the newly elected US President?

2. Closing Gitmo. When it kept us safe. Gitmo helped America’s security. Yet Obama wants to close it.

3. Wiretapping without warrants in specific instances helped America’s security.
Yet Obama wants to stop it.

David: Why do you still have this tingly feeling about Obama? I just don't get it.

Please respond.

you know..I thought his speech was quite witty and ...
I didn't sense any racist sentiment...but I felt a sense of unbelievable sense of moment that this same country that tortured and enslaved blacks could elect a black president..and so the same way a Jew might pray that the Germans get it right..a black who lived through those difficult times..can say that it good jest I might add.
It was only later that night after putting on talk radio that I hear one of the angry old men..spitting into his mike..about the inauguration..
just chill..y'know...
