Inaugural Obama strawmen GOP must refute
Conservative principles that make the Party of Lincoln and Reagan grand must be defended daily by those nominated and elected under the GOP banner. We can’t assume that potential voters aren’t influenced by big liberal Democrat lies. Yesterday, on fake Inauguration Day (as per the U.S. Constitution, President Obama took the operational Oath at Noon on Sunday, January 20), we got the more tepid post-re-election-mortem | Read More »
This Barack Obama is no Ronald Reagan
Today, Obama’s second inauguration, was marked by the usual formalities. Unlike Mr. Obama’s first inauguration there were far fewer people attending the festivities this year. Obama was sworn into office on two Bibles which reportedly belonged to President Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr. respectively. Myrlie Evers-Williams, who was picked to give the invocation after previous choices didn’t pass the administration’s Gay tolerance standard, delivered | Read More »

Obama’s alienation of the Liberty that ‘binds this nation together’
In his Second Inaugural Address, President Barack Obama pledged shared allegiance to preserving the Declaration’s unalienable rights that bind us together as exceptional Americans. Too bad he doesn’t share the Founders’ understanding of Liberty nor the Constitution’s insistence upon the separation of limited government powers necessary to preserve it. The Commander-in-Chief that even Algeria’s counterpart doesn’t bother to call when authorizing military actions that deem | Read More »
Inaugural malice towards all (who disagree), Keystone XL charity for none
Environmental studies pave the way for Second Obama Inaugural (despite expected impact of Port-a-Potty leakage on Potomac River waters) as Keystone XL Pipeline’s, and more than 15 million other, underemployed study food stamp and welfare applications If only we studied the affect of EPA regulations on human employment, the biographies of Democratic presidential nominees and what happened in Benghazi as thoroughly as we do the | Read More »
Barack Obama ‘thinking’ of backing off of no-corporate-money for Inauguration.
Hey, guess what? Barack Obama’s not running for anything any more! Which means that he officially no longer has to care about progressive sensibilities. President Barack Obama’s fundraising advisers have urged the White House to accept corporate donations for his January 2013 inaugural celebration rather than rely exclusively on weary donors who underwrote his $1 billion re-election effort. People involved in his re-election campaign said White | Read More »
The People’s Proclamation
On January 22, 2009 the National Mall was packed with people who freely came to the Capitol to witness the historic inauguration of the first African American president, Barack Obama. Weeping, hugging and optimistic, “More than one million people gathered…in a wintry Washington DC, to see Mr. Obama take the oath. “ On that blustery afternoon a message of biblical proportion filled the air. I saw a | Read More »
Hope, Change! Darkness falls …
There lie they, and here lie we, under the spreading Barackracy. Ahh, Starbucks. Where would I have been without you? Actually, that’s an easy answer … I’d have been wandering the streets of DC, cold and irritated. Like thousands of people actually were on the evening of inauguration day. It was a cold bright day in January, and the clocks were striking three. In among | Read More »
Open Thread: Inaugural Kool-Aid
Heh. I have some similar video I’m still editing. I should have it up this week some time. In the meanwhile, if you’ve seen any other hilarious footage, why not drop it in the comments? OPEN THREAD
From the “You can’t win” department
From NYTimes.com [All emphases in the following quoted snippets is mine.] It was not precisely lip-synching, but pretty close. The somber, elegiac tones before President Obama’s oath of office at the inauguration on Tuesday came from the instruments of Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman and two colleagues. But what the millions on the Mall and watching on television heard was in fact a recording, made two | Read More »
Hope, Change! Part II: The Night Before
I’m writing about the night before the ceremony as “Part II” because I didn’t really think much about it until later reflection. On Monday, I was, like so many others, unable to get inside the beltway. The lines were long and, unlike the day itself, they moved very slowly. News reports said it was even worse trying to get back out of DC, something I | Read More »
Hope, Change! An Inauguration Tale
Tuesday morning. The weather was frigid, the sky dark, as I drove my sub-sub-sub-compact rental into Vienna, Virginia, there to catch the Metro into Washington, DC, for the inauguration of Barack Obama. I hate those little cars. I’m tall and not exactly thin, so the combination of compressed spine and the lubricant necessary to squeeze in make an unpleasant experience. But hey, I saved like | Read More »
Did anyone notice this?
o I was sitting there watching the inauguration. I missed the swearing in and most of the speech because I was in class. So i got back to my room and settled in and then it was announced that a poem would be read. I could tell the woman was nervous and I felt kind of bad for her. Anyway, I put this to you | Read More »
Well, one million at the Mall is nothing to be *ashamed* of.
That’s quite a lot, really. Maybe not quite record-breaking, but still quite a lot: A record crowd for inauguration? Hard to say Reporting from Washington — More than 1 million spectators convened on the National Mall to watch Barack Obama take the oath of office Tuesday, but it was unclear if the crowd surpassed the record thought to have been set at Lyndon B. Johnson’s | Read More »
The Rhetoric Of 44
So . . . I hear there was an Inauguration. There is much about this new Presidency concerning which we will have to suspend judgment; it has only just begun, after all. But in addition to the swearing-in, the big event, of course, was the Inaugural Address. Given Barack Obama’s speechmaking fame, I expected big things. But I have to say, I was disappointed. And | Read More »
