Mr. Bush was inaugurated yesterday, and as he swore into the office he wasn’t the only person on this planet swearing about his second term.

I am looking forward to the inauguration of Viktor Yushchenko on Saturday [Globe]. At least when Ukrainian elections have suspicious outcomes they hold new ones. Mr. Bush should take note of what happened in the Ukraine, and the recent peace deal in the Sudan [Mail & Guardian, South Africa].

This, Mr. Bush, is what freedom looks like when it is on the march, it’s not just about words.

So while the rest of the world tries to solve it’s problems without America’s help, and despite it’s interference, Mr. Bush presents us a speech in which he says the word freedom 25 times, and liberty 17.
