    I've got to have one of those BO pins. Coolest First Pet ever!!! I wonder did BO and Seamus kick it when Willard came by 1600 Penn.

    Why do this? Because we've done it with every other President that's gotten elected to a second term regardless of the economy. This President and First Lady will not and should not be treated with less respect then our former Presidents and First Ladies. This is a non-issue...

    Respect is something which must be earned. Bobo and Moochelle have not earned an ounce of respect from anyone except their retarded liberal sheep.

    @Anonymous. I bet you one thing. The designers are LINING UP to dress Michelle, I can guarantee they weren't for either of the uncomfortably built Bush first ladies.

    Flotus Michelle is shaped like a woman while both of them were shaped like barrels.

    I bet this one gets deleted......as they do 75% of my comments.

    This is news worthy? As mentioned by another each President has done something like this.

    Howevr, Malory it isn't about "haters gotta hate" (so ignorant), it is about who pays for this and how much. Personally, I think it should come out of their own personal pocket with the stipulation all proceeds go to charity.

    @Anonymous. And George and Laura Bush did??? With the mess he created and left us in, we should have demanded a refund from them for their second inauguration. Funny how Right Wing Sheep have no issues with their second trip around the dance floor.

    Ain't THAT the truth.
    I'll be volunteering at the Inauguration this year as opposed to sitting at home with drinks and friends and watching it on tv. But no regrets. Looking forward to representing my President and my country to all visitors.
    Hope to see you there MOOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Anonymous – You'll never admit just how wrong you are about the President and the First Lady, but most Americans know. The list of accomplishments continues to grow. The millions of donors and volunteers and the 5 million vote margin of victory reflect mainstream America's love and respect for the POTUS. Your anger and bitterness will, in the end, only hurt you.

    I suspect that if President Obama walked on water you would be one of the haters who would say "There he goes playing God again"
