"preserve, protect and defend" What? The Constitution. From what? Enemies. What kind? Foreign and domestic. It remains to be seen if these words have meaning to this president. To some in the past they really didn't. It's the Constitution. The oath doesn't say defend the govt.

Will Lady Gaga wear her GUN BRA to the Innauguration? She is the kind of white trash that has an invitation from Nobama.

Pathetic.

Oath to what? Surely not to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Doing that would make him a liar!

Revealed here today!

President Obama is a historical figure and has again been elected by the majority of Americans.

The posters here are for the most part simpleminded uneducated miscreants. Within not so many years they will lie in unmarked graves paved over by future progress.

Good luck Mr. President. The MAJORITY of the nation is encouraged and looks forward to your leadership for 4 more years.

binLaden is dead and Mitt Romney is at his mansion, riding his car elevator up and down in one of his many Cadillacs. Its all good.

"NEW YORK (CNNMoney****) -- The hemorrhaging of American jobs accelerated at a record pace at the end of 2008, bringing the year's total job losses to 2.6 million or the highest level in more than six decades.

A sobering U.S. Labor Department jobs report Friday showed the economy lost 524,000 jobs in December and 1.9 million in the year's final four months, after the credit crisis began in September.

The unemployment rate rose to 7.2% last month from 6.7% in November - its highest rate since January 1993."

Just to remind those who have a poor memory. That is what this President inherited from the last republican administration.

Some liar on this board posted one of many lies that this President has the worst jobs record in 60 years. LOL

Get a grip. Get over it. I hear Somalia has a nice climate. You would be welcome there.

After four years of “hope and change” 22 MILLION Americans are STILL unemployed or underemployed. A RECORD 48 MILLION Americans are surviving on Obama food stamps. Under Obama a RECORD $6 TRILLION in future-crushing new debt has been dumped on our children to repay. NO Federal Budget passed in four years of Obama’s failed leadership. Middle-class employment tax hikes. New Obamacare health insurance scam taxes on medical devices, medical savings accounts, medical expenses. First-ever US credit rating downgrade. Obama debacle after debacle, Obama scandal after scandal: Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Solyndra/AboundSolar/A123/..., New Black Panther voter intimidation, EPA secret email accounts, intelligence leaks,... Guantanamo STILL open, with war in Afghanistan STILL raging, new wars in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan,...

mmm mmm mmm, four more years

Congratulations on all your first-term successes, Barry Oblivion. We the people are confident your second term will be just as successful for you. Dismantling of the Second Amendment, followed by dismantling of the First Amendment, followed by dismantling of free market capitalism, followed by complete destruction of the US economy, followed by ... ?

"NEW YORK (CNNMoney****) -- The hemorrhaging of American jobs accelerated at a record pace at the end of 2008"

I guess it's ironic that a Liberal President had to dig out from the Liberal inpsired fiscal crisis! While it's impossible to determine how things would've turned out without the stimulus and massive govt spending, Obama's own analysts said we'd be under 6% unemployment at this point WITHOUT it!!

Anyway, good luck to our great country the next four years! It was enjoyable seeing Obama's interactions w/ his daughters and I like Michelle's bangs.

"With the end of fiscal year 2012, the Congressional Budget Office announced the 2012 federal budget deficit: $1.1 trillion. Taken purely at face value, this number is enormous. Yet every Democrat, and especially the Obama campaign, ought to be telling anyone who will listen: Not only has the president cut the deficit by $312 billion during his first term (so far), but he's cut the deficit by $200 billion in the past year alone. And the CBO projected that the 2013 Obama budget, if enacted as is, would shrink the deficit to $977 billion -- a four year total of nearly $500 billion in deficit reduction."

Its all good.

Gooseplagiarizer, copy-dumped from the Hufferton Post “the CBO projected that the 2013 Obama budget, if enacted as is, would shrink the deficit to $977 billion -- a four year total of nearly $500 billion in deficit reduction.”

So pass it, already, Democrits. The Democrit-controlled Senate voted it down 98-0. Projections don’t impress. REALITY impresses. SUCCESS impresses.

"It's all good"? Goosy, 22 MILLION Obamanomics-unemployed Americans, 48 MILLION Americans surviving on Obama Food Stamps, will disagree with you. The REALITY is your Debtor in Chief has piled more future-crushing debt onto the backs of our children in a single term than any other President in history. Fact. Deal with it, Democrits.
