Obamas's Inauguration as seen from Norway

The American Dream realized

Obama's Inauguration as seen from a Norwegian blogger.

Most Norwegian and European journalists have for decades beeing very negative to Republican US Presidents, no matter their efforts.

But this time, after 8 years with a certain person from Texas as President, even I have been looking forward to change in domestic US Politics and a more pragmatic view of the World outside.

At last a United
United States of America.
The most multiracial, religious and cultural Nation on Planet Earth.
The "Promised Land" that all of my grandmas brothers emigrated to, from a very poor Norway in the very late 1890's
I hope the promised changed will ben
efit all people in USA and around the Globe.
Peace and Respect, with tolerance and pragmatic solutions.


Here in Norway's Oslo Area, this afternoon rush hours was pleasant. I left work some minutes before 4 pm. The worst rush hour. Normally.
To visit my mother (89). Rush hour? Why on a Tuesday, so few Cars on the Highways?
Hmm, believe it or not. People went home early to watch this historical moment on TV - Live.

We sat together , my Mother and I, we watched the historical Moment. On TV. We have more Family in US than in Norway. And I have my youngest Son living across the Southern part of Lake Michigan, just across from Chicago. With other words, What happens in US does have an impact of me as well.

My Mother was very touched when we watched TV.

After visiting my Mother, I drove downtown, to hand over some Opera Tickets to some Friends (New Years Eve).
Our Friends came out with Tears in their Eyes. Not for the Tickets.
But the incredible Fact:
Barrack Obama's inauguration as President of USA.
They have worked in Waskington DC for may Years. He as a Norwegian Diplomate.

When arriving home, just to prove we did follow.

I hope for a better, more pragmatic and respectful world and a lot's better and safer daily life for the American's in general. And that greed should be punished.

I say: Support the new Administration, but do not think the change will come with your next salary or bill.
It will take time to get rid of a rotten heritage. More time than you might think.
Now it's time to have a long and prosperous perspective.

Have a great Future

PS. Internett had without doubt a really high Trafic today. The response time for posting has been very loooong.

Great post. It's actually quite strange if you think about it, how the shift of one person, the president, can make such big difference - especially in the hope of people.

Oh Yes - it is amazing here in our country. Everywhere people are feeling hopeful and optimistic - everyone is talking about the inaugural and the new President. In meetings, in the hallway, at home and in public places!!! We are proud of our country - we have such dire problems and we have challenges ahead but oh, it is wonderful to feel like we have an opportunity to rebuild here at home and around the world.

Thank you for sharing the Norwegian perspective, and much of the worlds perspective. I must admit that it is fascinating to experience this being an American living away from my home country. It is very interesting to hear the opinions of Europeans on our politics. As you well know I support Obama, and while I realize that change takes time, I believe he means what he says and says what he means.

What a wonderful and historic day for us here in America Tor...and for everyone all over the world. It was amazing....touching and emotional. We have a long road ahead, but we look forward to it with a renewed vision of hope and inspiration. Barack Obama is our President, and I know he will work hard for us....and with us. He is a truly good man. I have supported him from the very beginning. He is meant to be here for us now....and he means what he says. Thanks Tor...
