President Obama

My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition. Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears, and true to our founding documents.

Indeed, I consistently opposed HR 2003, a position which has disappointed many of my Ethiopian friends.  In fact, there is some evidence that those who organized the one-sided hearings which launched that bill deliberately excluded me from participating, knowing that my reputation is that of searching always for an objective and balanced account.  For example, just as I criticized the EPRDF regime for its destructive overreaction to the June 2005 protests-and have encouraged them to make some public apology-I criticized the failure of the CUD leadership to take up their elected offices.
