The Party's Over: Let's Get Back To Work
By Allen Bacon, Editor, The Daily Bosco
You will have to excuse me for not posting something yesterday on Inauguration Day. But I stared at the speech I posted on Martin Luther King's Day...the "I Have A Dream" speech and I could not have thought of a more appropriate item to have posted on this historic inauguration day. You can't improve upon perfection.
Because I don't think in all of Reverend Kings wildest "I Have A Dreams" did he imagine that an African American would be voted to the office of President of the United States in just over 40 years after he gave that speech. It was a historic and special day indeed.
So now we crossed that important line. We voted a man in as President...not based on his skin color...but on his qualifications and his ability to lead. He is the best man at this time and place in history.
But as President Obama (has a nice ring to it after you drop the elect) indicated yesterday in probably one of the most eloquent speeches in Inauguration History.. We have a lot of work to do. It's not going to happen over night. There are too many major issues to rectify. But rectify them we will as we all pull and work together to make this happen.
Now we have a leader that should inspire us to do just that.
