Obama’s Inaugural Address Was Disappointing

I have few high expectations for Obama’s Presidency.  One was that he would give a great inaugural speech.  I was very disappointed.  I thought his speech was mediocre  and vastly repetitive of his past speeches at best.

“On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics,”

This is a highly quoted section of his speech.   It is ridiculous to say that his election means people chose “hope over fear” or that his election will bring “unity over conflict and discord” or that his proclamation is doable.   He is in la la land and he had 2 million people there with him today.
