I love this compliation of President Obama (the first time I’ve written that title–how good it feels!) gracing the front pages of newspapers around the world (from Gawker). More specifics about global newspaper takes on the new adminstration is available on the Newseum website.
For all the naysayers (yes, they’ve already started), it’s nice to see that many of the world’s media are providing President Obama with a few pages of optimism before the inevitable doubt.

I laugh a lot when I watch Letterman. But this video, a compilation of his great, ongoing series of “Great Moments in Presidential Speeches,” had me cracking up. When you watch him, you sometimes just feel the pain he’s feeling as a poor public speaker.
Bush just doing what Bush does.

This one is jaw-dropping.
Citing the revolutions of Hitler’s Youth, then Chairman Mao’s followers’ blind devotion to Communism, and finally–to top it all off–proudly introducing the notorious, genocidal president of Rwanda, Pastor Rick Warren urges thousands of his religious followers to give themselves to Jesus in the same, blind way. “What would happen if North American Christians said, ‘Jesus, we are yours.’?”
Are these appropriate analogies for Christians? Should Christians devote themselves to the cause like Hitler’s Youth?
