The President has been sworn in for his second term. His acceptance speech was positive, and you know it was effective when the most the Republicans can say is that it sounded like a campaign speech. When the biggest complaints are that the President chewed gum, Beyonce lip-synced, and the First Lady rolled her eyes during lunch, it must have been a good day.
We had some pretty nasty texts the morning after from Obama's detractors- when we talked about Alicia Keyes singing "Obama's on fire", one listener said they wished he were. Another added "it would have been a great speech if Mitt Romney had given it". We had a caller who offered light at the end of the tunnel for the detractors. Mike said he was reminded that we are now "more than half-way through Obama's Presidency". If it's any consolation, I know how you feel, having suffered through George W's two terms. It'll be interesting to see which Republican will rise in the next few years, and if Hillary Clinton will do what I fully expect; run for President of the United States. An unsettling thought, I bet, for Republicans looking for some good news.
