  • Trump's inaugural address is the shortest in 40 years

    01/22/2017 11:03:43 AM PST · by EveningStar · 19 replies
    President Donald J. Trump's inaugural address on January 20, 2017 was brief, succinct, and to the point, and at 1433 words, the shortest in 40 years. The shortest, 135 words, was George Washington's second inaugural address on March 4, 1793. The honor for the longest inaugural address belongs to William Henry Harrison. His speech on March 4, 1841 was 8460 words in length. It took him about 1 hour and 45 minutes to deliver. He did it on a cold wet day and wore neither a hat nor overcoat. As a result, he caught pneumonia and died 31 days later,...

    Students at Independence High School in Williamson County, Tennessee, will not be allowed to watch President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration during class on Friday. Senior Olivia Roberts was so surprised by the ban she decided to write a Facebook post that has since gone viral: “To preface this, I am not one to post or debate anything political on Facebook but wanted to hear thoughts on this: I go to public school and we are not allowed to watch the inauguration tomorrow... Teachers are banned to show it. Teachers are also not allowed to discuss anything about politics or religions which...
  • Trump Channeling JFK, Reagan in Writing His Inaugural Speech

    President-elect Donald Trump says he will write the first draft of his inaugural speech all by himself — and is studying the addresses of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan for inspiration. Several visitors to Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach told The Washington Post that Trump plans to use "Reagan's 'style' and Kennedy's articulation of grand national ambitions" in the speech he'll deliver after being sworn in as the nation's 45th commander in chief on Jan. 20.

    Apparently history was not a strong suit in college days for Barry Obama -- or his highly-paid speechwriters. In his 2,106 word aspirational tone poem from the Capitol steps at Monday's official inauguration, Obama called for many people to do many things and vowed a myriad of vows, already faded in the memory of millions -- as usually happens to inaugurals and State of the Union shopping lists. We published a complete address text and C-SPAN video right here. Among those 2,100 words, four shockers leapt out at the eyes and ears of many not in the American news media....
  • Inaugural Address Redefines Basic Freedoms

    Urging that “we break free of the archaic notions of our nation's so-called 'Founding Fathers,'” President Barack Obama launched his second term with a stirring call to “update our concepts to fit our modern circumstances.” The President maintained that “the Founders' original idea that 'liberty' means freedom from government abuses and usurpations has no relevance today. Our government does not usurp our rights. The people elect their rulers and expect them to create the kind of

    The Telegraph ^ | 23 Jan 2013 | James Delingpole
    When George W Bush declared war on an abstract noun – "Terror" – he was widely and inevitably mocked by the left for his foolishness. Not to be outdone, Barack Obama has used his second inaugural address to declare war on an even more nebulous threat to the security of the world: reality, itself. Here's how he put it in his inaugural address: (H/T Theo Spleenventer; Bishop Hill) We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science,...
  • Obama's Target is Not Just Republicans, but the Constitution Itself

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | January 21, 2013 | Joel B. Pollak
    President Barack Obama's second inaugural address has been described as one of the most partisan ever given, heralding a sweeping left-wing agenda and demonizing his opponents. But President Obama's target is not simply the Republican Party: it is the Constitution itself, and the values of liberty that it enshrines. In the address itself, President Obama made the case that liberty is not timeless; that it must adjust to the times, and that "preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action"--not to defend those freedoms from infringement, but to give them "meaning" through government regulation and redistribution.

    Obama’s speech: Very long on gaseous generalities; exiguous with details. “Par for the course,” you say. Yes and no. Yes, an inaugural speech is intended to set the tone for an administration rather than spell out in detail a policy program. I appreciated, as must every American of good will, his promise that his oath of office was before “God and country, not party or faction.” I wish I could believe it. Most leftist commentators I’ve checked in on have regarded the speech as they regard Barack Obama, as a consummate example of “pragmatism.” I find it curious that...

    American Spectator ^ | 1.22.13 | John R. Guardiano
    In his second inaugural address, Obama makes clear that it’s fight night in America. snip Indeed, Obama’s second inaugural address was a liberal wet dream: It pressed all of the Left’s erogenous zones: • Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? Obama vowed not to change or reform them — even though they are driving us toward financial insolvency, and even though they provide workers with a relatively lousy return on their investment. • “Climate change”? It is real, and it must be addressed — now! • “Sustainable (read: green) energy”? “America cannot resist this transition. We must lead it” — now!...

    The night Barack Obama won the election, he gave one of the most inspiring victory addresses I ever heard. The day Barack Obama was inaugurated president of the United States, he gave one of the least inspiring inaugural addresses I have ever heard.
  • Michael Medved: Inaugural Incoherence: Reassuring Substance Meets Pedestrian Style

    In his Inaugural Address, President Barack Obama confounded all conventional expectations while soothing the fears of worried conservatives. Based upon the big moments of his campaign, many observers expected a speech of scary, sweeping, socialistic substance written in a glittering, epic, eloquent and indelible style. Instead, the new president delivered a puzzling address of mostly reassuring substance, but worded in a pedestrian, platitudinous and occasionally clumsy style.

    Q. How do you know the Obama inaugural speech was a bit of a flop? A. When even an unreconstructed Obama fan like Eugene Robinson pans perhaps its key passage. The Washington Post columnist participated in the post-inaugural kibitz session on MSNBC. Before moving to his remarks, lets’s consider the lineup the network chose for the segment: Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, the aforementioned Robinson, and as cherry on top . . . Keith Olbermann. Now that’s what I call fair-and-balanced coverage! Olbermann suggested that a certain passage was the heart of the speech. Robinson agreed, but then proceeded to politely...

    Here is video of President Dwight D. Eisenhower delivering his second inaugural address on Monday, January 21, 1957. You can see Eisenhower's first inaugural address here. January 20 occurred on a Sunday, so the President took the oath in the East Room at the White House that morning. The next day he repeated the oath of office on the East Portico of the Capitol. Chief Justice Earl Warren administered the oath of office on the President's personal Bible from West Point. Marian Anderson sang at the ceremony at the Capitol. A large parade and four inaugural balls followed the ceremony.That's...

    Senator Hatfield, Mr. Chief Justice, Mr. President, Vice President Bush, Vice President Mondale, Senator Baker, Speaker O'Neill, Reverend Moomaw, and my fellow citizens. To a few of us here today this is a solemn and most momentous occasion, and yet in the history of our nation it is a commonplace occurrence. The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place, as it has for almost two centuries, and few of us stop to think how unique we really are. In the eyes of many in the world, this every-four-year ceremony we accept as normal is...
