TUESDAY JANUARY 20th - 2009

My good friend Alice is a co-founder of the very informative web site -  Two Sisters From The Right ~ Making No Apologies For Celebrating America. She has written such a beautiful post for today, I want to repeat that post here, for it speaks my thoughts and my heart. I would encourage you all to visit and bookmark Two Sisters From The Right. They are an excellent source of information and commentary on US and world happenings.  And now, today's post...

                                                     FAREWELL TO OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF. GODSPEED.
                                                                         THANK YOU FOR KEEPING US SAFE.

"Our responsibility to history is already clear: to answer these attacks and rid the world of evil. War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing."

-- President George W. Bush
National Day of Prayer and Remembrance

Farewell to the Chief
When Richard Nixon withdrew from politics, he angrily told the press: "You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference." After today, January 20th, 2009, neither his constituents nor the media will have George W. Bush to kick around anymore, but you won't be hearing angry words from the man who was treated more brutally and unfairly than Nixon could have imagined. We won't waste time trying to defend him. We're confident that history will show that he was worthy of the Office and that he met the crucial challenges of his tenure with more wisdom and dignity than anyone gives him credit for on this day.

This won't be a long post. There are too many other tributes that say what we feel more eloquently and objectively. We would like to refer you to a few:

There are also some good tributes you might like to see on You Tube:

 

Unlike the left, we do not consider hatred a legitimate tactic. We will continue to keep a watchful eye on the incoming president. We are deeply disturbed by the evidence pointing to his presidential ineligibility, his arrogant refusal to present proof of his birth status, and his ties to communists, terrorists, lawbreakers and people with anti-American views. Our vigilance, however, will be tempered by the reality that the welfare of this nation is more important than our misgivings. To us, our country comes first......and although we believe that the wrong man has been chosen to lead us during the these trying times, we wish the new president well because our country's future is now in his hands.

Thank you Alice, for this post. And to my friends, I will write again soon. My heart is low. The fact that Barack Obama could not even repeat the words of the oath of office without stumbling all over them and then appearing very uncomfortable about having to say them at all - is DISTURBING to me. I guess after him saying a number of times, that "our constitution is fundamentally flawed and needs to be rewritten,"  it really must have been difficult to swear under oath that he would protect and defend the constitution.

GOD HELP US.

I hope Bush can get some peace and quiet now for a little bit. I know our family will miss him. And congrats on Nathan's news!!!!
