Obama's appetizers & beverages come before the main fare.

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Obama's Inauguration

Submitted by M.D'Souza (United States), Jan 27, 2009 at 20:41

By his initial center-left appointments, Obama has tried to appease those on the right, and at the same time he served his usual Kool Aid to those on the left with his ideas to fix the economy.

Within the first 4 days after his inauguration, Obama has sprinted quite fast to the far left with the decrees he has signed with regard to funds for abortions abroad, the GLT rights in the military, adoption, etc.

In his first TV interview on al Arabiya, where he blamed the previous administration's foreign policies that brought about a rift in the US relations with the Islamic world. With no qualms he spoke about his Islamic roots & upbringing. These were taboo topics during his campaign for the past two and a half years, including any reference to his full name Barack Hussein Obama .

We'll stay tuned. A lot is yet to unfold about the real Obama.
