The Bush era is down to its last day. It’s been quite a ride. Bush inherited a budget surplus, and turned it into the largest deficit in history. He inherited a weakening economy, it went up for a while under him, but finally crashed to be the worst its been since the great depression.
He led us after 9/11, but then lead us into a war that should have never been. He vowed to make those responsible pay, and yet Osama bin Laden still lives.
His rhetoric was about compassionate conservatism, and yet he let New Orleans suffer after Katrina.
He entered the office with so much promise, only to fail to deliver on that promise.
Now, we’re getting Barack Obama. I’m very optimistic about our future under his leadership, but I don’t expect it to be a future without pain.
I can’t wait to hear his inaugural address. I’m betting that it’s short, and very inspirational with the overall theme being, it’s time to get to work.
