I listened to the presidential inauguration this morning. Here are my first thoughts:
I was not impressed with Obama’s speech – maybe I had higher hopes than for someone to say American is a great country although it has been run into the ground, and thank God you elected me to revive the country – paraphrased of course.
I disliked the poetry – just a personal preference.
I thought the Saddleback pastor was full of himself.
I kind of liked the second preacher and his prayer, but I didn’t catch the his name.
Update: Toby just sent me a reference to Joseph Lowery to show me that who he was and that he is, and that he supports same-sex marriages. Obama's choice of Rick Warren, the Saddleback preacher caused lots of controversy due to his oppostition to same-sex marriages, while Preacher Lowery did not cause controversy. Still, I liked Lowery's prayer.
Aretha is always great.
The commentary on all channels sucked.
