Barry's Back

Today, on the other side of the world, the US welcomed President Obama back for another four years. I didn't watch any of the inauguration, but I did read a few articles and peak at a few pictures. Amidst this very special American moment, I would be lying if I said that my initial reaction to the below picture was anything other than, Michelle got bangs! 
Glad to see her and I are on the same page. 

Welcome back Obama.



Top 5 Quotes from Obama's Inauguration

"My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it – so long as we seize it together."
"We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity."
"We will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law.  We will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully – not because we are na├»ve about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear."
"We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth."
"We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate."


American,
Kate

P.S. Read what some people had to say on election day way back in November.
