For eight years, this country has lived under a cloud. It was a cloud of lies, deception and often time’s stupidity.
This cloud is a man. His name is George W. Bush.
This man is also a cowboy and a gunslinger. He was the decider and most of his decisions tarnished our nation.
Look at what happened under his watch.
Look at 9/11. Look at Iraq. Look at Afghanistan. Look at New Orleans. Look at the financial mess we’re in.
Maybe looking back at these mistakes doesn’t do us any good now, but we shouldn’t forget either. We need to learn from those mistakes and starting today, it’s time to take our country back.
Today, the cloud is being lifted. Barack Obama will be sworn in as our nation’s president. It’s good to feel some hope again.
