Gov. Ritter Applauds President Obama's Inaugural Address

President Obama | 1.20.09- for the Grateful Web

Gov. Ritter issued the following statement after witnessing President Obama's historic inaugural address:

"This has been a spectacular event. Everyone I've talked to has described a deep emotional connection to Barack Obama as well as a passion for the kind of hope, change and promise he represents. President Obama was extremely articulate, honest and direct about the country's economic challenges, while also noting that we are a country whose character is marked and defined by resilience. He urged us to rediscover that core just as we have found it time and again over the course of American history.

"I was also struck by his message to the rest of the world. Under President Obama's leadership, we will rebuild a bridge between the United States and other nations. To our enemies, he vowed that we will not back down, and to those who wish to work with us, we will move forward together.

"I look forward to strengthening the federal-state partnership with the new Obama administration as we set about the difficult work of rebuilding our economy and overcoming the many other challenges facing America today and in the years to come
