With the start of the Obama – Pelosi – Reid Depression only hours away, these people should get used to sleeping without shelter.
What a historical, wonderful day. One we all can be proud of.
Wish I could be there with them.
I'm cold just looking at the picture.
God Bless you Mr. President....may the winds of God be swiftly on your back, and the arms of the angels carrying you with the rest.
OBAMA MANIA HAS TAKEN HOLD OF AMERICA.THIS IS A DEFINING MOMENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY. PEACE AND LOVE TO ALL. YES WE CAN.
You people are crazy! I will be so glad when this is over with and he can start earning his paycheck. I pray he is a good leader but I don't put all my trust in him. Remember, It takes an army of people to run this country, not just him. I pray he has some good advisors and I pray he will not be a "yes" man to everyone's little whims like Clinton was.
Lord God, help this man, cause he's gonna need it!
see how far,strong of a bond obama has brought to america.thanks obama.
Memo to neo-cons and bible-beaters.
Please note the millions of American citizens that have braved 20 degree weather from 3 A.M. 'til noon. You would be wise to TIVO these scenes, then when you feel like being an obstructionist, review the TIVO scenes.
Then you can decide if you want to get on board or be run over, but you will NOT be able to stop the people of America.
Hold tuff people...you are witnessing history!
At least the unemployable have something to do today!
I am glad that I am home and watching the inauguration on CNN News. burr ! Where's the fridge and the food. Great historic moment. Mike in Montana
Maybe the temperature will drop. Then it might start to snow.
Wish I was there or at home watching this historical moment...but Im at work sneaking to type this blog. Oh well..I DVRed it at home. Excited to watch it later : )
If there are any republicans at the inauguration today they can now see what it is really like to be black in America.
Idiots.. 2 million people, none of them working. Just exactly what this administration will promote..
Please, can we for ONE day, not be negative?
I think Steele Curtain is forgetting that we've been in a depression for the past six years.
Am I the only one who is wondering......Don't These People Have J-O-B-S? Kids to feed? Mortgages to pay? Insurance to buy? Oh that's right they can skip work, they don't have to look for a job or do any of those responsible things. Thats why we have government bail outs! I mean come on! I understand that this is an historical event. Jobs are scarce. Times are hard. You couldn't tell it by that crowd. D.C is not cheap and I am sure the prices have gone up this week!
to okie: let's hope he can undo the last eight years of conniving and back room deals with the oil companies and arms manufacturers! let's hope that our standing in the world improves in the next four years! that's what you wanted to say, right?
OKIE: Your name suits you well, with all the cynicism and all. Get a life...
There with you in spirit – wishing you all the very best. God bless.
I hope he speaks about taking responsibility for yourself, not blaming everyone else for your problems, and just getting down to "yes, I can" and "yes, I will" - no more excuses.
These people are crazy...
