First Day at the New Office
Well, not exactly"you have nothing to fear but fear itself" then, nor even "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country...". He sounded like an orator trying, just a little too hard, to sound focused to me.
But, hey - here's the thing: he's not George Sodding Bush so he's automatically the Greatest American President of the 21st Century. Good luck to him. He's gonna need it.
Especially since wiki has helpfully offered up his signature to the entire world. On top of every other challenge he faces, the poor bloke can never write a personal cheque again. & interesting questions may arise for future historians when they come to examine international treaties allegedly entered into by the States under his Presidency....
