It's Official: President Barack Obama!

It's Official: President Barack Obama!

Barack Obama takes oath of office from Chief Justice John Roberts to become the 44th president of the United States of America at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.

Although the oath took place minutes after noon, the transfer to power to President Obama occurred exactly at noon, according to law.

President Obama, 47, was joined by his wife, Michelle, and daughters. Malia, 10, kept it cute in a deep-blue belted J.Crew coat while 7-year-old Sasha popped in a pink coat, also by J.Crew, paired with an orange scarf and gloves.

Congratulations President Obama! Godspeed.

    I could not be more proud of this man, our new president. He is a symbol of hope, in a world full of despair. His race has no bearing on me, just the magnitude of his commitment to our country makes me feel good today.
    And for the record…could we try to interview a white person for a change, and let us tell them how excited we are about his presidency. I’d like to think everyone has an opinion!

    I agree with Emilie, he really is not seasoned enough for the job. I sure hope he proves me wrong. I am however tired of the race issue and would have preferred someone else. Hey maybe I can retire to a foreign county since I think this one is going into the crapper.

    Great! The Dow is now below 8000! (for you Y’obamamaniacs information, the Dow is a stock market indicator. When it goes below 8000, it’s not good).
    But they don’t tell you that kind of stuff on bumper stickers or t-shirts! Make sure you get your Obama commemorative plate quick before you run out of money! He IS quite dapper, though, aint he?
    The masses are A**es.

    ahahahaha – Read the below. REALLY?? REALLY?? PLEASE tell me people aren’t buying these. If you have bought one, please raise your hand and let us know why. :)
    “First African-American President Elect Barack Obama’s confident smile and kind eyes are an inspiration to us all, so why not commemorate his historic achievement on a “priceless work of art,” in the form of a collectible plate? Not just any plate; a fine porcelain Historic Victory Plate featuring our dear leader surrounded by American flags and fireworks, inscribed in 22k gold trim. Only two per customer please; demand is high.”

    Thank you Democrats. You wanted the keys to the car and now you have them. Both to the White House and Congress. When you crash, there will be no one else to blame.

    Today is an Obamanation.

    America is in the toilet and today marks the day Obummer and the Dems officially flush it down — while the brainwashed masses cheer. We are headed for Depression and a foreign policy collapse, all while you liberal lemmings walk off the ledge and drag us with you.

    So, what exactly is his plan? “We are one”? “We are going to save the world”? “We are for hope and change”?
    Really. REALLY? Just like that? Really?
    It’s that simple? C’mon. Go finish up the rest of your Koolaid and don’t choke on it. Cause you can’t sing “allah is great” while you’re gagging.
