Live-Blogging Inaugural Address
Quotes from W's Inaugural Address catching my attention:
"The survival of liberty in our land is increasingly dependant upon the success of liberty in other lands."
"..they bear the image of our maker." (Eat your heart out, Newdow.)
"Freedom must be defended by its citizens and protected by the rule of law."
"Liberty will come to those who love it."
"[Some] unwisely decided to test America's resolve, and found it firm."
"One day, this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world."
President bush also talked about creating an "ownership society," including ownership of homes, business and retirement savings. Hillary, remarkably, did not fall out of her chair.
The benediction was just offered (and Newdow has been hooked up to an AED).
It's VICTORY day.
