God Bless America

And God bless our President.

It's days like this that remind you just why we're so fortunate to be Americans.

Makes me breathe a sigh of relief, I tell ya.

No TV coverage? I'm so lost since moving to Pacific from Eastern time zones. By the time I get myself and the girls dressed and ready for the day, everything has already happened, and everyone has already discussed it.

How unfortunate is it that only 53% agree with you?

(Not that I care, as I am one of them....)

President Bush is going to have the most politically successful 2nd term in U.S. history. Just watch, he's going to reform Social Security, reform the tax code, reform health care.....I just hope the Congressional Republicans are strong-willed enough to do it right.

No TV at work :) So the radio was the next option, but no one covered it till finally Rush came on at 905am and he had it, but the oath itself was over and the speech had started.

And I was relieved as well.

I just realized that I'm the grown up! I'm watching it on tv. Sesame Street has been pre-empted :D

Even if Rush had covered it at the top of the hour, he would have been too late. President Bush was sworn in at 11:55am ET, by my clock. I love that he's punctual.

I went to the Inaugural parade in 1993 and I remember sitting in the cold for longer than we should have because the newly sworn-in President Clinton was running about 45 minutes late. As he did for his entire Presidency. *sigh*
