Barack Obama – Our Time For Change Has Come

Posted by on Jan 20, 2009

No talk about the contest today; no talk about marketing today. At 11:30, the swearing in ceremony for the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama, will take place. I will be glued to the television much earlier than that, and I’ll be taping this one for posterity. Y’all just can’t imagine what I’m going to be feeling at the moment when he says “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

You know, I never had anyone tell me I could be president of the United States when I grew up. Truthfully, I never thought I’d live long enough to see this day come. The day after President Obama was elected (yeah, I’m calling him that now), I posted some videos because I just didn’t have anything more to say here. I said it all on my business blog in a post called A Change Done Come, and just didn’t have anything else much to add. I must say this; I wish my dad was here to see this, so that we could cry together.

Well, on my business blog, there will be a post just after 11AM, before the inauguration, with the subtitle U Will Know; I hope you check that out. Meanwhile, here, I want to share this really creative video, because, The Time For Change Has Come:

What a great speech!

Thanks Hope; yes it was.

I couldn’t believe how much the markets took a nose dive today with the inauguration. I thought Obama’s admission as president was going to boost the market on confidence of non-busy policies.

Still, his speech was great, very Martin Luther King-esque

The problem is that Obama couldn’t overcome the worry and dismay over the banking problems. That, plus Congress hasn’t approved his choice as secretary of the treasury, and, though they loved it initially, finding out that he didn’t take care of business at home and withhold taxes for his own house cleaner didn’t help him much, though they’re still going to confirm him.

The change has definitely come to America. It’s also a great gift to generations of migrants whom he represent who could not have dreamt of such a good thing happening to them. I am glad.

Despite his inspirational speeches, I strongly believe that it’s about time to put an end to hypes and media generated drama to allow him execute his plans (He was already feeling the pressure during oath taking though tried his best to maintain composure).

He’s getting power at a time when the world economy is looking down the long empty tunnel. Probably, cutting down war expenses in the middle east and rest of asia is something that he should be doing right away. These were the actions that actually pumped up credit and taxation issues…and Bush Sr and Jr together has managed to screw up America. For a change, even defence weapon and crafts trading is not bringing in money and hence say NO to war (but not terrorism) is the way forward.

As an Asian, who has stayed in the US and have friends and family members as migrants there, I am looking forward to a better America in the next four years.

Hi Ajith; thanks for your good comment here. However, I do have to correct you on President Obama and the oath of office. He didn’t mess that up; turns out the Chief Justice tried to do it from memory, but he didn’t get it right. President Obama knew he messed it up, so he gave the Chief Justice a chance to fix it, which he really didn’t, so President Obama went ahead and said it like the Chief Justice had said it. No, that was a man cool under pressure. He’ll be a good president, but he’s not going to be soft, and he’s going to make some hard choices that many people aren’t going to like. But he won’t be a bully, and he will listen to his advisors, and they won’t lie to him; this time, it’s going to work out just fine.

Obama has huge responsibility to do. Some people think once he comes in everything would be fixed. I wish him the best and he should try his best. He is only human.

January 21st, 2009 | 11:21 AM

Exactly Darilin, he is only human. But he brings a feeling or more openness and the like, and, well, someone new just has to be there. Let’s give him a good six months, then we’ll see how things are going.

Whoever coordinated the music with Obama saying “Our time for change has come” did an excellent job! Aside from that, I am sorry to see President Obama inherit such a mess–a mess he didn’t create. But I am reminded of a scripture that says something to the effect: when we are weak–that is when God is strong and can work through us.

On another note: Selling anything connected to the newly elected President will get you rich quick. One vendor I met in DC sold 3000 Obama shirts at $10 a piece in about 48 hours.

Yeah, well, I thought it would be inappropriate to have anything on that post, but next time,…

And yes, he’s created a tough situation, so it won’t be easy, but it will get better.

Great video, I enjoyed it. Yeah I saw the glitch at the oath taking and thought he handled it well. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Busby, glad to hear your perspective on this. I haven’t kept up with the different places he’s lived, so I’m missed this. I love the lessons; thanks.
