Obama’s Inaugural Speech

obama002The best, concise summary of Obama’s speech appeared in an editorial in the Wall Street Journal:

Mr. Obama’s second inaugural was a clarion call to “collective action,” as he put it, and Tuesday’s speech showed what he thinks that should mean in practice. “The American people don’t expect government to solve every problem,” he said, while proceeding to offer a new government program to solve every problem.

That pretty much sums up Obama’s approach since he took office.
