Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.
Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.
Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
Weather you watch the video or read the transcript to the entire speech , its those 150 words that go down in my history book as the most confrontational ever spoken by a new U.S. President ever. And the most meaningful to the people rather than the establishment. Its a great example for other pretenders to follow.
Lets hope we can make it mean something here in Montgomery County. Which means refusing government cheese right here.
Of course it is NOT a signal to go back to your homes and wait for one man to fix it all for you.
