The speech writers were all trying to do a Gettysburg address, Fail. Try to fix the economy, and actually work with the house of representatives, instead of attacking them. Just a crazy thought on a media blitz inauguration day done paparazzi style. I do feel sorry for the staff that attempted to write the "speech" that would mark in historical reference, the President's reign over his subjects. I am sure the speech writers did their best, and I mean that sincerely. They will also need jobs in the near future as well.

Dewey it was great watching everything. Our president seemed very happy and was just taking it all in! A great way to unite after the bitterness of these past three months. Moving on...

"A great way to unite,"  I think that speech was not about uniting, even though he tried to hide it with we the people 5 times.  I think it showed he will go hard left and to he// with congress or anyone else.    Continued to show how much of a narcisist he is.  Welcome to Socialist/ communist America, media propaganda and all.

The amount of money spent on elections and the inauguration are ridiculous.  The amount the obamas spent last year was more than all the european leaders combined. He's setting records for everything.  Both parties waste way too much!

I do find that a little ironic LMUfan. 

But what I find even more strange is that today celebrates 40 years of Roe vs. Wade and not one person has posted a Happy Birthday message. 

We have threads and posts of college football games, who died and when [TY to fhoenix], war on women [actually should be called "Pay for my Trojans" war], who gets money at the strip club or hookah store, discussing why there are so many more takers than makers these days (49% making and 51% taking).  I just think we need to send a shout out to Roe vs. Wade for never having to celebrate 52 million children's birthday.

Happy Birthday Roe vs. Wade!!

Iran denies it is planning to build the bomb, and says Israel, widely believed to have the only nuclear arsenal in the Middle East, is the biggest threat to the region.

The issue barely registered during the election campaign, with a poll in Haaretz newspaper on Friday saying 47 percent of Israelis thought social and economic issues were the most pressing concern, against just 10 percent who cited Iran.



Our troops need to come home......We should close bases in the Middle East.....And, shut down Homeland Security....

World affairs no longer matter.  We are bringing ALL troops home.  We are the world police no longer. 

Let those abroad be warned now, come home because your country will not save you.  If you want to make your fortune abroad, you are on your own.  You will not be saved if you venture off U.S. soil and all hell breaks loose. This warning applies to ALL U.S. citizen foreign workers.  We will not save ambassadors [or their staff] or those working in the gas and oil industry.  Get home now, this is your only warning.  The U.S. 'war machine' will now be stored for a few years.

Al Qaeda is on the run, it must be true because I heard the POTUS say so.

Charlie - Beyance - CHEAP SHOT !!!!  Not even clever. When I was in the service I learned that my salute was to respect the rank and not the man or woman.  That taught me a lot about good manners in terms of rank.      Frank
PS - The folks who said she had lip synced are back tracking.  Will you apologize if you are wrong about the lip syncing?  Besides, who cares unless you are a President Obama basher; the presentation was excellent.

I only resented saluting the butter bars.  There were many gunnery sergeants and master sergeants that I would have preferred saluting, they understood when I called them SIR anyways.

Real - I truly understand what you wrote, but that is a freedom we gave up to the institution we were serving.  One way of saying that is "to stay out of the brig".  
When I went into the service my uncle gave me only one bit of advice - "Beware of little second lieutenants" - man, was he ever right !  I still had to salute their bars though.

Just think of this; of estimated 55 million babies aborted, they say if they would have lived that 30M would be married by now & many having had children of their own.The article I read estimated that would be an additional 16M Americans.
It is mind boggling to think how things might have been so different.
And to think, God had a plan for each of these children, even before they were conceived & probably even for their grandpa's & grandma's and some of the great-grand parents as well.
Abortions go on as I type, these children & their mother's need your help or if willing, your prayers.

If you are really looking for a better understanding of the situation, a good place to start would be reading "Islamic Imperialism: A History" by Efraim Karsh.

bluedog, what happened was our government wanting to run those countries.
did americans have any problem in Libya, Egypt, Iraq, or Afganistan prior to our government wanting to depose the dictators in those countries. we could go to all those countries without any problem.
those decisions help the armament industries to sell arms to both sides instead of just one.

Of course, and Chuck Hagel is our savior. Got it.

If you don't read, how did you develop your insightful world view?

Say, how is your crowd taking the complete failure of Obama's efforts to derail the re-election of Netanyahu?

Obama doesnt like it one bit.  It will affect his "flexibility" with Russia and especially his goal of nuclear disarmament.

The first ten minutes of this episode illustrates clearly the confusion of the Right when it comes to the vision of this President.  Enjoy.
