Search and Yee shall find (Maybe)

Tuesday, January 20, 2009


Today in Inauguration Day and in less then five minutes Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States.

I am flipping through the various new channels throughout the morning listening to all of the "experts" give their opinion on whether the new Obama administration will be good or bad for the United States.

I always wondered whether these "experts" really believe in what they say. Most of these people that MSNBC, Fox and CNN have on are Ivory Tower with PhD's in areas no one ever heard of.

Where do they find these people? Do they believe they really connect with the average citizen?

Do they have a crystal ball? A magic eight ball?

If these "experts"have the solutions to resolve all of the problems the United States is facing,

Why don't they run for office?

It's easy to sit on the sidelines and offer opinions on somewhat else should do,then offer criticism when decisions are made that you don't agree with.

Lastly, as I watch the final minutes before Obama is sworn in to office I can make the following statements

1.) Everybody in attendance is freezing.

2.) Some are still wondering on what kind of dog the Obama's will get.

3.) Most are asking themselves why they didn't stay home and watch in their warm living rooms.

4.) All have no idea on what the next four years will bring.

The swearing in is about to start.

I won't say too much as I'm an outsider looking in, but you have valid points in your post.

Even in my own country I cannot foresee what the politians are up to in government business. They always have a hidden agenda that is sprung upon the population. We have a Prime Minister who should step down due to a lack of confidence from the people of the country, but is instead playing games so he doesn't lose his job.

As for Mr. Obama, he has a very tough job ahead of him to clear away the mess others made.
