No, but I doubt I'll be able to escape it. Pompous ass getting crowned again? What's not to like?

Very sad time for our country.

I would watch it live, but I'll be at work. I'm recording it.

The under 21s have impressed me lately!
They will watch the inauguration and they watch the stock market!

Michelle has bigger muscles than Barack haha wimp

01/18/13 8:52 pm

Nah. I didn't vote for him, and don't wanna see Michelle gloat.

01/17/13 8:13 pm

Naw. I work. Don't have time to watch others party. Instead of getting friends and family back to work

I'd rather stab myself in the eye with a stick. No thank you.

As I said, I was HOPING you'd specify something else. You have done that. Thank you. I hope you understand that the only reason this was an issue is because people HAVE used the other animal mentioned - many many times, so that it's essentially become a stereotype, and not one of "liberal" origin.

I was talking about a jackass, I just wanted to see where your limited liberal minds would go with it. Turns out right where I thought they would. You guys are so simple.

!!!!Nope!!!! When he received 140% of the vote in my home state (there IS no 140% of the vote!) no, not going to take his swearing in seriously..and Im SURE not going to take his oath to protect & defend the Constitution seriously!

I think it's a little strange to denounce the US cause your candidate didn't win...

Fuck no couldn't care less about the dictator in the White House

01/17/13 8:51 am

Tax payers pay for all the security and the road closures. Why do we need this? We've now had 2 months of the president crowing about his victory and still not doing anything about jobs, jobs, jobs (unless of course they are government and/or union). Skip it all and get to work!

All I care about is my candidate won, I'm not into unnecessary pomp and flag waving and swearing on ancient texts written by nomadic desert wanderers.

Spoiler alert. Obama is chosen to be the next president.

01/16/13 9:11 pm

I said no but I actually am considering it now. Don't get me wrong, it sickens me. But sometimes I think its important to know the bs you're up against

01/16/13 8:44 pm

I am a vet who would have died for America and it's way of life. We were a Republic, now we're becoming A Socialist nation. America is dying, sorry, he is not my Commander in Chief. I no longer carry the passion and love as I use to. The disappointment is to great... I will not watch.

01/16/13 8:06 pm

It really is a waste of money. Thousands of people are threatened with job furloughs and BO spend, spend, spends. How about a quaint ceremony in the Oval Office. Be done with it.

Regardless of what a person thinks about this president or prior, the concept of a huge ceremony for a 2nd-term president seems like an incredible expense with no discernible return on investment.
In tough times, it's hard to comprehend the need for such an event.

01/16/13 6:02 pm

No I'm not going to waste my time watching that. Obama being reelected is going to be the end of this economy. The economy is going to go down. It isn't the matter of IF it will. It is the matter of WHEN.

Thank you, cheesechilli. Yeah, out of all the disgusting name calling that goes on around here, the implied meaning of this makes me the saddest. And angriest. (And I'd say that & mean it, no matter whom the target was.)

Absolutely, RJ, & I realized that was your point. I was just pointing out that even in the face of a completely obstructive Congress the will of the people could still prevail (on any matter that could be crammed into the Constitution). *Theoretically.* Can't imagine it happening, though.

susan, yes, that is true. But the point is that the POTUS cannot do it, as many have suggested and that the fringe media outlets continue to insinuate.

Sad we still have racism in the 21st century.

He is still human and deserves decency, and not the garbage posted on many of these threads.

Harsh words from people. I didn't vote for him, but please have some respect for the office. He is still the commander and chief.

I'd like to point out that if the Constitution couldn't be, and hadn't been, amended we wouldn't have the 2nd Amendment at all.

That's the limb I'm on too, superdave, but it's one that disgusts me (and the 3 people "liking" it aren't helping), so I was hoping he'd say... oh, I don't know... dolphins, maybe.

I have been, Evo, and I'm not happy about where it's taking me.

RJ, it CAN be done without Congress. An amendment can be proposed by a convention of the legislatures of 2/3+ of the states. (It still has to be ratified by 3/4 of the states.) This option has never been used, but it's available. (And that's not going to happen in the foreseeable future, either.)

Panties remain in a wad..... When Bush pushed patriot act they wadded up when they attempt to steal anyone's rights, I get that way!

And the last poll on the presidency rating is of no help to your argument. The polls leading up to and immediately before the election had Romney winning by a landslide. The SOH population is clearly not a representative sample of US voters.

01/16/13 4:44 pm

The major news networks, unfortunate but true, are biased in one way or the other...... I don't care if there is an R or a D behind their name the news should seek truth and speak truth it is or was their job.

Because, nightcrow, your premise "if everyone dislikes this fool" is false. Duh. Some voted for him because they actually do like him; some because they don't much care for him but they thought the other guy was way worse.

01/16/13 4:41 pm

FYI RJ.... Can't speak for others.... I don't watch Fox News.....

The Feinstein bill is DOA. Don't get your panties in a wad. It's no different than the 30th attempt to overturn the ACA.

01/16/13 4:37 pm

Colematts, I looked for this agreement in my profile. I even temporarily turned commenting off and then on again. No user agreement popped up. Maybe, this is something that Tony used to have and removed?? I agree that it would be a good idea.

Wow. It's amazing! The "he's better than everyone else/elitist" talk here corresponds EXACTLY to the talking points on talk radio and faux news. Absolutely amazing, the coincidence.

01/16/13 4:36 pm

True and if you look back I agreed with u..... Obama can not.... He is throwing his weight behind such.... And has said he agrees with the wacko from your state who wants to tax and register "assault" weapons and confiscate upon death of owner....

01/16/13 4:32 pm

People think he is better than everyone else, he thinks he is better than everyone, ask RJ1969. You didn't know Obama is the answer to everything, he can move heaven and earth. You need to start watching MSNBC and CNN more.
