44th president of the united states, barack obama, inauguration
I liked the speech better than many. I thought it was strong. Muscular. Direct. Unflourished. And yet artistic and intelligent.
I thought it was very partisan though, and wondered if that was the history of these kinds of speeches.

I thought you might like to read a story about "Change you can believe in." President Obama has brought "hope" to the nations, involved us all in this "movement of freedom", by rescinding the policy of not funding abortions or abortion-providers in foreign countries with tax-payer dollars. So Mike, you and I and the rest of the nation have the privilege of helping to pay for the deaths of foreign babies.
Yup...good times. We're definitely moving forward in the fight against injustice now.
If you want to read more about this from a source that gives a more favorable reading of the situation, here's a link to the AP story:
The next thing to look out for is whether or not he signs the "Freedom of Choice Act" like he promised he would. This act would strike down just about every state-level abortion restriction on the books and a host of other fun policy goodies.
Sorry if I'm being a butt. I know you don't support that. I guess that a million and half dead babies a year in our country, gets me going the way the war gets you, and the thought of the US contributing to any more tears at my heart. Its grotesque. Its evil. I have no other judgment for the act that I don't feel wouldn't be blasphemy.

I am not a fan of Bush or Obama (or any other politician). If Obama's plans for "abortion reform" go through--and they will--then both Bush and Obama will each be responsible for the deaths of many innocent people.
But somehow, I just don't think that the left counts the death of an unborn human on equal status with that of a grown human; just as the right doesn't count the death of an innocent Iraqui on equal status with that of an American citizen.
God save this culture of death.
