commentary: An Auspicious Beginning
A Shaky Start To The New Administration
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 24-Jan-09; Sermon #920c; 12 minutes
Richard Ritenbaugh, reflecting upon Jed Babbin's commentary of the inauguration and first week of the Obama administration, identified many ominous aspects of this event, including the flubbed oath and the conspicuous absence of a Bible, the extremely cold weather, the rude behavior of the crowd toward outgoing President Bush, the snub of former President Carter to former President Clinton, Hilary's argument with Senator Cornyn, President Obama's rather undistinguished sophomoric address, and the mountains of trash left behind by the uncouth crowd. Obama's choices for the cabinet all have skeletons in their closets. Later he signed sinister executive orders to close Guantanamo and provide aid for countries practicing abortion. In addition, he rudely warned the leaders of the opposition party that he intended to have his way regardless of their concerns. With this rather tragic beginning to the Obama regime, we must brace ourselves for some rough going in the years ahead.
