I know he was "officially" sworn in yesterday as per the constitution but didn't they just screw it up again?

Did you not read my entire statement? I said its not just Obama.

Some of it is paid with private donations, but not all.

Yeah you might want to look it up because you and BRC are sounding pretty petty.

What time will the Military be parading past Dear Leader?


Fine, Fine use of taxpayer money. Probably extra cheap paying all of those local, state and federal employees to work all day on a paid holiday.

It is NOT all paid for by private donations...maybe the Shrimp for the party....but this will cost taxpayers $100mil

But the sentiment is what I allured to in my OP. Americans just don't like pomp and circumstance, never have. Probably because the Brits were so full of it and we were going to be different.

In this country, we believe that Gun owners should capitulate to my wishes......and tax payers should be happy for the amount of my money I allow them to keep.....

I don't blame the guy for not wanting to show his face. He didn't show up at the R convention either, although they may have told him to stay away.

How am I being petty? As a former president, W holds a prestigious place in US history and it seems petty not to show up at an inauguration. He should do so simply out of tradition and respect for the office.

"For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

"We must be a source of hope for the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice"

"Our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts"

"Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law...


The blood pressure of R's just went up.

How much will all the inaugural events cost? It's hard to say.

While most events that occur in the capital have a hard-and-fast budget, the inauguration's many moving parts, safety concerns and large geographic reach make it hard to quantify – especially before the main event.

In 2009, ABC reported the total cost of Obama's first inauguration was $170 million. While incumbent presidents historically spend less on a second inauguration, it's unclear what the total bill will be this time around. Analysis of some of the known appropriations so far puts the total at $13.637 million, but it will no doubt be a much larger price tag when everything is accounted for.

It's amazing that BRC can beat off and post a play by play at the same time. Must have an audio-text app.

Very impressive.

One of the talking heads said he was taking care of his sick dad.

Sorry but thats BS. He's not by his bedside 24 hours a day. Jeb could have been at Dad's bedside for a 1/2 day while George W. showed up like all past presidents.
