The time has come, we have a new, the 44th, president of the United States of America. I wanted to watch the live braodcast at the student union's café but what a disappointment. The transmission was overshadowed by a German voice actor. How horrible! I stayed until he took his oath and then went home. I rather watch it on youtube in the orignal than hear the stumbling of a rambling German voice.
I wish Barack Obama good luck, he will need it with all the wreckage he inherited.
This is an excerpt from his speech:
"Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends - hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old"
