Democrats say President Obama’s inaugural address Monday was great. Republicans viewed it a bit differently — not that great. It’s that party thing that creates biases and influences opinions.

The view here is that it wasn’t history shattering but it was an attempt to inspire Americans to do better by taking a few tips from their earlier relatives, who overcame many hardships to preserve our republic. Of note is that he used a few words over and over again in a call for unity. He used “together” often. He began many sentences with “we the people.” The problem is the president calls for action and unity but he is as responsible as the Republicans and Congress for the stalemate on major legislation. Leadership embodies a certain amount of compromise and cooperation.
