Second Inauguration Won’t Be as Thrilling

January 7, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) —î Four years and one re-election after Barack Obama became America’s first black president, some of the thrill is gone. Yes, the inauguration of a U.S....

Obama supporters have to be PAID to show up for anything.

He got 8 MILLION fewer votes this time, the election was quite close in terms of the popular vote.

Basically he is the president of the high density urban inner cities, not of the rural heartland of the USA.

He lost virtually every rural county and state.

He has spent more money than any President in the History of the World during the first term, so let his sycophant minions celebrate the election of Santa Claus.

"how could he one-up the history he's already made?"

This is the point to remember. Obama has made history. In a previously all-white America it was inconceivable that a person of color could ever aspire to be more. Now this. A splendid example of how the Constitution's promises are slowly coming true and embracing all people without regard for the color barrier.

Obama's presidency has given new hope to millions of young people and children yet unborn. Hope that they too can and will choose public service and contribute meaningfully to the betterment of life in these United States.

The old prejudices will die slowly, but thanks to the teapublicans the sheets are now off and we see the faces of our enemies clearly. They are no threat. They are passing away.

so boxerboy do you feel that if you do not support Obama's expansion of military adventures in the world (he recently announced combat troops to 30 African nations) or if you don' agree with his two America's government, then the root of not following in lockstep could only be racism. If you cannot agree then shut and sitdown? There would be some who could argue that voting for someone because of their race is what we hoped to overcome and showed that with the election of Barack Obama, but to suggest that you must support him or you are a racist is, well, racism. If he proposes another country to send troops to, can we not disagree without being racist? If I am unhappy with my tax increase, am I racist? That concept is sold everyday,that if you do not support everything you are a racist, but in fact we should strive for color neutral. Slaves were people marginalized by color, marginalizing and demeaning people (if they are white or have a different view) is no better.

"Obama's presidency has given new hope to millions of young people and children yet unborn."

Should read "Obama's presidency has given "trillions of debt" to millions of young people and children yet unborn.

It never was about Obama being half white/half black for myself, when I voted.

It was about saving the country from $arah Failin in the first election and saving the country from Mittens roMONEY/LyingRyan in the second election.

The right wing extremists could have had a chance at winning a general election in 2012 if they would have nominated someone without all the right wing extremist baggage.

I could have seriously entertained a vote for Jon Huntsman or Buddy Roemer but they were not enough of right wing extremists for the teapublicans.

I certainly would never entertain any thoughts for voting for such wackos as Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingerich, Rick Santorum.

As long as teapublicans insist on sending far right extremists to elections, America will continue to look for sane people to vote for.

Blundererlie, Obama IS a MUSLIM according to his autobiography and he MOST CERTAINLY IS COMING for everybody's guns.

"Assault weapon" is just the camel's nose in the tent.
