As Rush Limbaugh remarked, Lowery's so-called prayer was far more memorable that the president's entire inaugural address.
I wonder if President Obama had any idea of what he was saying when he praised "the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things -- some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom."
These "risk takers . who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom," are the small and large business men and women of America who do the hiring, create products, provide needed services and compete with foreign competitors. They are the very people he wants to burden with heavier and heavier taxation and needless regulations that hamper their attempts to compete with foreign businesses and industries.
The craven New York Times might have had what have been described as "Obamisms" over the speech, but saner observers are simply yawning.
