Once you go black... Obama's 2nd Term

<< < (2/11) > >>

Miss Philicia:
People should be more impressed IMO -- not just the LGBT portion, and it was exceptional to not just mention Stonewall but put it in the context of Selma and Seneca Falls. But the entire speech was the most liberal inaugural speech of our collective lifetime. OK, so maybe there's still stuff his administration does/will do that many liberals don't agree with, but that's beside the point.

And keep in mind that this comes after the most liberal party convention in our lifetime. It's like liberals aren't afraid to voice their positions anymore, by that I mean not activists but the politicians. It's a decided shift.

Oh Heidi, did Miss P provide you the link to troll me? Not very original girl.

I was emotional that the president spoke about equality for gay Americans--the first time gay rights were mentioned in an inauguration.  The minister did as well.  The poet was an openly gay man.  I loved that the day fell on MLK Day.  And, swearing in on the Bibles of Lincoln and MLK was poignant.  It finally feels like there is a big change in this country.  Yes, there is still far to go, but it feels like there has been a sea change in just the last four years. 

Kelly Clarkson has never been better.  Man, she did such a great job.  I knew she was good, but she reaffirmed that.  Beyonce was good as well, but Kelly's performance was especially good.

If true, she did some good stage craft, by removing the monitor from her ear, to make it look like she was getting feedback.  Although, even if you're lip syncing, you could still get feedback that throws you off.
