However... I must take umbrage at the opening words of his speech:
My fellow citizens:
I stand here today humbled by the task before us,
grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our
ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the
generosity and co-operation he has shown throughout this transition.
Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath....
Woo there... 44? I think he means 43 for though Grover Cleveland might be counted twice and also be of a rather large size he does not really constitute two Americans. Time for someone's speech writer to be sent to school.
If I've got the wrong end of the stick please let me know...
Anyway far be it from me to take issue with a speech of the man who showed George W. Bush to the helicopter that took him away from the White House. Even if his presidency turns into a disaster he deserves to be remembered in history for having done the world that service.
