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.

The legacy of the 44th has begun

# 2

Congratulation Obama

# 3

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!

# 5

Yeah yeah sure sure…just you wait. He has no idea what he is doing

# 6

God bless him and God Bless America!!! I hope people have not put him too high on a pedestal.

# 7

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.

SO Happy Finally Bush is gone and Obama is here!!!

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.

lets get it OBAMA !!!!!

IM PROUD

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.

Obama shouldn’t have won…there you go

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.

Congrats!! So glad to be rid of Bush.

Yup. The Obamamaniacs sound like morons. He’s not a celebrity, folks. You really need to have a critical eye and evaluate him for what he does. – not because he’s a snappy dresser, speaks well and has Beyonce at his beck and call.

It’s amazing!
“Change” has come and is going to stay …for a very long time.
GO OBAMAAAAAAAAAAAAA

OBAMA!!:) @ 01/20/2009 at 4:01 pm

Sweetheart, I meant what does “change” have to do with “racist people” having to “get ready” ?
Get ready for what? (And don’t say Change, cause that’s a blanket statement that’s been way overused).

Maybe you should take your own advice
The only person in the world that probably cares for you is Obama his self.

Get a life

And just because we are happy to have Obama doesn’t make us maniacs you freaking MANIAC

Proud american @ 01/20/2009 at 4:06 pm

While I might not agree with Obama on all of his policies, I support him 100%. He is my president now, and as an American he has my full support. Everyone here should show some respect to the man that will be running YOUR country. It does not matter whether or not you agree with him on everything, but our country needs change, and Obama will try his hardest to bring that change.
And if he fails, he fails, but give him a chance to do so first. If he fails he would not be the first president to fail, and let me tell you, he would NOT be the last.
Honestly though, you shouldn’t be hoping for the man who will be running your country to fail. That is so sick and wrong. Everyone should be supportive of him. If not to him than show some support to your country!

This is an incredible day for this country and the whole world. Now it is up to all of us to see that Barack Obama succeeds -that is what is best for our country and our planet. I pledge to do what I can and I hope all Americans who love our country will do the same.

alright just to let you all know…i don’t have a problem with Obama because he is a black man…black men are cool…my problem is with his views on abortion and basically everything else he believes in….yeah…and what the heck is up with him pretending to be a CHRISTIAN???? WTF????

CHHAANNNNGEEE

haha

i bet your like some old wrinkly man thats stuck in the olden days
wake up and smell the coffee
things are going to CHANGE :)

Let this guy be reminded every single day that he is a public servant, and works for the American people and his lifetime lmeal ticket is paid for by the people of the United States… and he OWES US.

I pray that he expeditiously sends me my stimulus check and that he makes arrangements to pay off my mortgage by March. These are the two primary campaign promises I would like to see fulfilled first.

proud american how can you be a proud american and support this egotistical ****** at the same time???? jeez…

What was predictable about 35 years ago was that the have nots, the losers, the uneducated, the lazy etc. would out breed the winners, hard workers, etc. and that one day the losers would out vote the winners. THAT day has arrived.
Sad.

#35:
I agree – we should respect the man that is running our country. But is that what everyone was doing the last 8 years? Why the double standard?
I respect Obama and hope he succeeds (he NEEDS to succeed for the sake of all our families and future).
I DON’T respect the blind faith fools that scream “CHANGE” at the top of their Koolaid-filled lungs.

Obama is really the best man to have in office, it is such an honor to have him as our president!! :D
and for all you racist people.. go ************

Al….if you are single….and a man…i will marry you….just kidding… but i am very impressed with your views…AMEN!!

Prediction now with a l i b e r a l s o c i a l i s t President of the Dems:

Hyper-inflation
Hyper-unemployment
Stock market crash
Vietnam style ground war in Afghanistan
Major terrorist attack in USA
Oil restrictions push gas prices in the stratosphere, deeping the depression

Otherwise, things should be pretty much normal!

I was crying during the ceremony.
And I am not even american. Let’s hope he can live up to the expectations.

this is for you babe

CHANGE

OHHHHH CHANGEEEEEEEE

Well we can see that race is surely an issue… The blacks want a black president and the s o c i a l i s t s want a s o c i a l i s t president…

This totally disgusts me to the highest level, you fruits dont care about America you care about the color of America… The election of Obama truly shows how messed up this country is.

Freedom of speech is a has been, the white man is a s l a v e today… freedom is a s l a v e today.

MLK would roll over in his grave today.

when you put a communist in office you will get a communism…it only makes sense….sorry everybody to burst your bubble and all that…

Al,
I’ll marry you, too. Unfortunately, the non-educated breed too much and now they have out voted us. Correct. And all they can do is chant Change.

Getting old and dying with a disease is change too.
Not all change is good !

I agree. There should be no double standard. I did not agree with Bush on a lot of his policies, but I never disrespected him. (When that shoe got thrown at him, I felt horrible! What ever happened to treat others the way you would want to be treated??)
Also, not everyone who screams “CHANGE” on the top of their lungs are “blind faith fools”. The country does need a lot of change, for example the stock market and the horrible condition it is in. A lot of people out there do know what they are talking about. And those who don’t and still scream change, at least understand that something big will happen to the country, for better or for worse.

Well, Getting old and dying with a disease is change too.
Not all change is good !

Scary to think that our next president is the one that our enemies wanted to win.
And there you have hit the nail on the head. Does no one question WHY is he the choice of our enemies? I do, and the answer scares me to the marrow of my bones.

*53

Amen to that babycakes

Dow is 8000 below because of Bush’s moronic rule. Obama started today and he will need at least two years to clean u the mess created by 2 republican terms

John F. Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” and Ronald Wilson Reagan said, “Government doesn’t solve problems, government is the problem.” We should never expect the government to do for us that which we are able to do for ourselves.
Obama should take THEIR advice.

Since George W. Bush was called “W”, do we now call Barak
H U S S E I N Obama “H” ??
Just curious.

In the event you are wondering where is Obama going to lead.
Obama will attempt to fix relations with the a r a b s. He will try to work treaties with them giving into their demands and bribing for safety to this country. All democrats will herald it as a great accomplishment of diplomacy. America will no longer be a super power. It will turn from getting involved in the affairs of the world. You probably have not thought about this or noticed but america is being bankrupted by Congress. Obama will be in office for 2 terms. It will be a long rough ride. They will get the USA back into the UN and call for an amerounion (Unification of Canada, Mexico and the USA). They will try to get America to abandon the constitution. Just like Nero looked on and play his lyre as Rome burned Obama will rejoice to sink the nation he hates come down .You wait and see.

I still don’t know what Change is coming – could someone PLEASE give me an example that is not rhetoric. Will we wake up tomorrow morning and the world as we know it will be different? The government will start paying my bills?
#53: I agree, I was mortified at the shoe throwing incident as well.

President Bush responded just like he should have after the attacks of 9/11/01!! Since know one paid any attention to Ollie North regarding Obama Bin Laden including former VP Al Gore!! during the senate hearings, it was a matter of time and former Pres Clinton also ignored the warnings by not taking him prisoner when offered! This should have happened with Former Pres. Bush – but he was not allowed to finish the job in Kuwait – thanks democrats!! you had control of the vote! Why is it that former Pres. Clinton could attack in other countries without the Senate or House vote or support and nothing is said about that?? – did you forget Sommalia and other places but he did nothing when our troops were attacked – the USS Cole!! President Bush had both the Senate & House votes of support!

The news media is so liberal that you do not receive both sides of any of the issues because if you disagree with them you are not publicized. The McCain/Palin and especially the Palin attacks are evidence of that! Are they going to attack Michelle Obama on much her wardrobe costs the taxpayers or better yet, us taxpayers also get to pay to have her mother live with them in the White House – I’m not aware of any other Presidents moving the rest of their family members in the White House with them to live.

no one ever said that we would wake up tomorrow and everything would be different. Like someone else said on here, Obama will need at LEAST two years to fix the mess our country is in. I think when people talk about change, they are talking about the repairs our country needs. You honestly can’t think nothing needs repaired on our country. I’m confident that Obama and the rest of the leaders of the country and the World will work on repairing the mess we are in. (to be specific, as you supposedly like, I mean the financial mess.) I think people who aren’t a democrat, or who liked Bush are so bitter because everyone is blaming Bush for the financial mess. It is not all Bush’s fault. Sh*t Happens. But just like every other president in history that was in office when something went wrong, he inevitably the scapegoat.

What exactly has this empty suit done for this country in the 1 1/2 years he was a junior senator ?
What is there to be proud of ?
I want my check now !!!!

lakers fan in boston @ 01/20/2009 at 4:38 pm

personally i dont like obama that much even tho im a democrat
but whatever best of luck obama, i dont think u’ll do all u promise but i do wish u luck

Presidents more or less can lead, they don’t make laws, they can take the country to war, appoint judges, and veto bills. They don’t make the economy work or not work, make it good or bad. They aren’t responsible for every little feel good project that you as the average citizen thinks is worthwhile. They don’t spend your tax dollars….the Congress and Senate do that. President Bush didn’t pressure the private sector to loan money to people who couldn’t pay it back. The Dems did that, including our New President Elect. Guess what, by the Government getting into the business of the private sector, they screwed a bunch of us. I suppose from the simpleton standpoint, it is easier to blame the President. The difference between an American, and a whiner born in America is illustrated correctly in my mind by Katrina, and the Floods which occurred later in the Mid West. Whiners, wanted the Feds to bail them out for Katrina, yet how many mayors and local officials in LA knew of the danger, and didn’t prepare for it? Don’t worry, that’s what the Feds are for right? When the floods in the Midwest hit, those folks more or less took care of one another and fixed their own problems, you didn’t hear them whining that Washington needs to do this, needs to do that. See, it’s about those who accept responsibility for themselves and their neighbors, and those that expect Washington to solve every little thing.

I want my check.
My eight kids are hangry. Their daddies can’t be found.
I want my check as PROMISED !

Bush was definitely the scapegoat.
Yes – folks need to wake up to reality and realize that “change” is not going to happen tomorrow. People also need to look at their own habits and realize that we have all contributed to the mess. Do people really need to go to Best Buy and max out their credit cards for a Playstation? Do people really have to have more kids and then not teach them to read? (Because said parent is playing Playstation) Do people really need to go and buy homes and cars they can’t afford?
And no, I’m not bitter – I just don’t see the need to spend almost 170 million on inauguration festivities. That’s excessive. Which explains the culture that got us in this mess in the first place.

My landlord is mad at me. I told him Obama was paying my rent from now on. I voted for him so now he owes it to me.

I agree again. I think we have some common ground here. I’m not liberal nor am I conservative. Obama said in his speech that we all need to “change”. He said we need to recognize our bad habits and start to fix things. I agree that 170 million is excessive, and he’s not exactly following his own advice on that part. But honestly everyone just needs to give him a chance. Obama Said, “What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility – a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.”

Cont…
Let’s give him a chance to do that, before we start bashing him. Give him a chance to succeed before making him the next scapegoat.
Everyone needs to get it through their thick skulls that we need to give him a chance to do what he promised. He just started about 5 hours ago! Give him some time!!

haha debbie thats hilarious i totally agree

YES WE CAN!!
was incredible when he won, and more today when he becomes to THE PRESIDENT!! He’s full of hope, and everybody hopes with him. I’m sure that the change is coming!

Congratulations OBAMA!

Proud American,
You’re right – we definitely have some common ground. I fall smack in the middle of liberalism and conservatism and wasn’t thrilled with any of the 3 candidates. And I will certainly give him a chance – again, I haven’t bashed him or his policies and believe that he’s making good decisions. I’m just alarmed by the public fawning over him and their lack of sense of responsibility. To think that a president will change your life for the better is…is…I don’t – just ignorant. And the thought that so many people believe this to their core is frightening.
God bless the USA!

How dare you throw stones “emilie”? I’m a christian and I believe in a woman making her own choice. That person will have to settle that issue with God only. Most people who say they don’t believe in abortion have deep rooted secrets that a lot of people don’t know about. Let the truth be known,o.k. The majority of people who don’t like Obama, don’t like him because he is african american. Get over yourself. God made us all in his image! God approves so who cares what people like you think. Hating blacks will not get you into heaven sweety!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So if you’ve got a racist mind, it’s all right
My President is black, but his house is all white!

Hello miss America, hey pretty lady

You can keep your puss, I don’t want no more bush
No more war, no more Iraq
No more white lies – My President is black!

hahahahahahahaha j’s a genius.

HEY EVERYBODY OBAMA WON! JUST THOUGHT I WOULD REMIND YOU REPUKE-LICANS ABOUT THAT LIL’ KICK IN THE AZZ!!!!!!!

oh, good heavens. Really. That’s a great song, Einstein.

hey kae, emilie doesn’t have anything against black people she just thinks that it is immoral to give up a life for the sake of not having to deal with it ABORTION IS WRONG!!!! i totally agree with emilie

*86

Just wondering
are you racist?
Whats your deal?

do you miss bush.. haha on your own

OBAMA well done:)

# 87 did you totally miss the part about not being against black people NOT against black people i just happen to have a strong oppinion on abortion i think that it is wrong just cause im against abortion doesnt mean i am racist

You people are nuts. He’s not a celebrity and he most definitely he’s not GOD like people proclaim him to be. I hope he does good like he says he’s gonna do. Every president says that lets make a change and it never happens. Man did you look at the stock market when Obama got sworn in as president wouldn’t you think it would go up ha ha ha ha no it didn’t it went down. Just give him a few months or a year then you will start hating him because he lied!!!!

Lmao at some of the dumb bitc*** in this thread; go f*** yourselves

Oh yea by the way he also first president in history to spend over 100 million on his inauguration than any other president what does that tell you.

This thread isn’t about Bush a**holes

OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was taking my government final when the inauguration was going and my teacher was trying to get a live feed but couldn’t cause his laptop would get crashed. But however he did get a live sound so we were able to hear it. It was just soo funny cause not only the Chief Justice messed up the oath but when the lady told everyone to stand up, people in my class actually stopped and got up and my teacher yelled ” Sit down and get back to taking your final!!!” I didn’t stand but a couple of my friends did which was funny.

you are entitled to your opinion on the subject of president obama. but you have to remember that 48 percent of the those who voted did not and do not share your opinion of the man. and some of those who voted against obama were african-american.

when the next congressional elections come along you may see just how unhappy some of these people who voted republican are. even now some republicans, my aunt and uncle are two of them, are starting the grass roots job of getting democratic congress people voted out of office next time around. they want to put republicans in control of the house to stop obama from forcing his “social” agenda on tax payers.

these people refuse to stand by and watch all their hard earned money -what’s left of it- be taken away by this new president. my uncle says he did not spend all those years “on the line” in the fire department to see his savings used to pay for the education and health care of children who aren’t his. he comes from the old school which says that if you bring a child into this world you, and you, alone are financially responsible. not your neighbor!

im just picturing you all behind your computers being idiots

hahahahahahah

Obama!! wooooooooooo

im so happy:)

he is president now so saying harsh things isn’t guna change that
be happy :)

If he messes up which i hope he wont, then you can run your mouths

you know, I’m Canadian, and yet I am very proud of Obama and everything he has done, and everything that he wants to do help Americans.
man, i wish we had a great leader like Obama here in Canada…but unfortunately we just have Steven Harper. maybe I’ll move to the U.S. ;) lol congrats USA, you have a great 4 years ahead of you! (hopefully it will be 8 years!)

i agree that #87 totally missed the part you’re talking about. and you are allowed what you think about abortion. just as i am. you also have the right to say that abortion is wrong. just as i have the right to keep what i think private. although where #87 ever got the idea that being anti abortion is the same as racist i’ll never know.

amazing day…so historic!

OBAMA! <3

Debbie @ 01/20/2009 at 4:47 pm He is half white and raised by a white mother and white grandparents. What happened to his black father?

What most black fathers do.
Disappear.

Oh please, the guy separating from his wife soon after the marriage, and finalized a divorce within two years. He returned to Kenya and would have been lynched if he had returned. Come on.

Well done America, I’m happy for you, but remember, Barack isnt a miracle worker.
And for some of you people bringing up the race thing, him being the president won’t change things.

I’m really, really scared. I’m going to be totally honest and admit that I’m worried about what America is coming too. Obama did not have my support during the election one bit. At first when I saw him on the television, I thought he was a great person and very likable. But a few days later I learned what he stood for, and this turned me away. He really lacks experience and this is not something I want and not something America needs in the time we’re having now in this recession. I think people were too busy hearing his eloquent speeches but not really listening. He may seem like the “cool” guy or a new modern guy to take over our country, but that’s not what to look for in the person that is taking hold of our nation. He used catch phrases like “I believe in change.” Really Obama? Why don’t you elaborate on that change instead of repeating that phrase a million times? We NEED a plan. You don’t have one. People may be glad Bush is out of office, but no one delt with the kind of disasters he delt with (9/11, Hurricane Katrina, etc.). But all i can say is, you may not have liked him, but he kept our country safe. He HAD a plan. He knew what he was doing AND had lots of experience. Obama merely has any of these qualities a national leader should have. What is America coming to? All i can say now is that I’m going to have to get over that he won the presidency and accept this fact. America- don’t put everything on the plate for Obama- we can all help. WE are united and we all need to come together and make this happen. This man can’t do everything he promised. And by the way might i add that Bush spent 50 mil. on his inauguration party and we never heard the end of it. Obama spent $179 million on his inauguration party, and no ones complaining. It’s like Barack- are you kidding me? Yes, this is what we really need to spend when we are falling down the tubes in this economic recession? I don’t think so. God Bless Everyone, but wait until this man causes something horendous. As a mature adult though i would like to say that i hope Obama succeeds even though i want to say i told you so. No one wants their country to fail.
God Bless America.

Lol, I wish all these “worriers” and “Cassandras” thought this way before Bush bungled his way into office. It would have saved us a lot of trouble.

A REALIST @ 01/20/2009 at 6:19 pm

CONGRATULATIONS, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA. Our 44th president of these United States!

CONGRATULATIONS, FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA!

So the office went to the “president” who HAD NOT SPOKEN THE OATH YET? This can NOT be legal. The office of the president of the United States cannot go to somebody who has not spoken the presidential oath yet, folks. I don’t think – at least, it does not make sense to me. And then the oath was actually messed up because the guy who spoke it for the president read it wrong! Obama learned it in a certain way, and the guy spoke it differently, so Obama had to wait until the guy fixed his line … how did this look to the world? HELLO! Anybody out there smelling something foul?

LuckyL, stop calling people names and go tend to your 12 children.

mgurlgurl @ 01/20/2009 at 6:26 pm

GO OBAMA. He is the best and will prove it too!! Change is here. The racist people don’t need to comment and waste their time. If they hate him then they don’t have a choice but to live with it bcuz it is we the people who voted him. LOVE YOU OBAMA!!

I am so happy, at last, President Obama is sworn in.

I just love our new president, and our First Lady Michelle.

Congratulations our new First Family!

his plan???

his plan is environmental regulation. its regulation on business and rebuilding the economy. its a time table for iraq and peace talks with other nations. its universal health care so no child dies of a treatable disease. its helping the 33 million who live below the poverty line. its funding public education and getting rid of “no child left behind” because tests don’t teach. its human right, civil right for all people regardless of gender, race, class, or sexuality. its fighting for teh good in our country, our world. its asking the american people to be patient, to give a little, to take responsibilty, and shoulder some of teh weight as the counr rebuilds.

its realizing that the idea of american exceptionalism is in and of itself unamerican and realizing that we must work with all nations, friend and foe, because we all live on the same earth.

so it that a good enough plan? or do you have a better one? wars, tax cuts, and drilling for oil are not going to save us. looking purely at the economy, at short term benefits, has always been our downfall. here is to hoping it changes because i have put all my trust in this new government and this new era.

Spoken like a true Obamamaniac

you republicans are f*cking retards, get over it u racist jerks. YOU LOST. and you have sarah palin to thank for it. boo hoo.

thats right ken….america IS in the toilet and it happened on bush’s watch.

So the office went to the “president” who HAD NOT SPOKEN THE OATH YET? This can NOT be legal.

_____________________________________________________
actually it is legal. if you had read the captions underneath obama on cnn at 12 noon washington time saying “obama now president even though he has not taken oath of office” you would then seen. the people on cnn explained it well. according to the constitution obama became president of the united states at 12 noon eastern time. despite the fact that he had not yet taken the oath of office.

as for messing up the oath; what has that got to do with it. by the time the oath was being taken obama was already president. it was a mistake on both the part of the chief justice roberts and president obama. get over it.

don’t forget that a lot of white fathers also fail to look after their own children. they run off as well. there are some very responsible african-american men out there who take care of their children.

Here's The Deal @ 01/20/2009 at 7:33 pm

President Barack H. Obama. :-)

It’s so wonderful to finally be able to say that. Bye-bye, Mr. Bush. =)))

Even with all the joy that comes at this historical moment; there are still you ignorant people who sterotype people. Not Only Is the President Black he is also White!!! For all the conservatives who have such a problem with Democrats, how about this you have had the keys to the kingdom for 8 YEARS!!! Everything that is happening is an exact result of those who had power the last couple of years…So Blame your selves don’t BLAME OBAMA!!! Keep Your Mule Kool-Aid and Acre ..I perfer to get earn what I get…If maybe you could take time you would be inspired but I guess it’s hard to hear with your head that far up your own A****!!! No need to respond… By the way the only person that has the experience of being the preident is the president !!! Which I do not believe any past ones were on the ticket!!

By the Way GO OBAMA!!!

Australian @ 01/20/2009 at 8:10 pm

All you guys against obama don’t realise that almost every country in the world hates u americans, and now that u have obama, its starting to change, people are actually starting to respect americans again, whislt before people hated u. I think its great that obama has won, cuz now there’s a chance that he can fix up all the problems bush has made and fix up the screwed ecomomy which effects the whole world.

man…michelle o is one ugly lady. poor woman

The United states is in a mess and hopefully with better leadership we will go back to the greatness. Give Obama a chance…he’s not stupid.

I would not want to be in his shoes! I’m hoping he can turn this mess around and things improve before it gets worse. Bush took 8 years to make a mess of this country……..so, give it some time and support Obama for this country’s sake.

OBAMAISMYPRESIDENT @ 01/20/2009 at 8:26 pm

I think it is sad and funny at the same time that people are still saying negative things and rude comments…no matter how much you dont like the fact that YOUR new president is partially black your comments still dont change the fact that he is gonna be our president!!!!

qIANA joNES @ 01/20/2009 at 8:30 pm

OK ummm…..”whatever”. That’s considered what you said about the Koo-laid racist ok. I’m a young black lady and whatever race you are, i’m sure you know that a lot of african-american people drink koolaid. OK Why don’t you go choke. I don’t wanna start anything but, BARACK OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, if you don’t like it…..well you can suck on a big toe for all i care. And Emilie you can say all you want but, you ARE NOT ABOVE THE US.CONSTITUTION> BANK ON IT BUDDY!!!! (I QUOTE HANCOCK)

allykat17 @ 01/20/2009 at 8:34 pm

Just a few things….Obama is president. To all the haters, you lost. you look like idiots carrying on, not accepting the fact. So put your big boy pants on and get over it. He’s your president too, I don’t see you getting up there trying to change things. Ok now, thought so.

OMG beyonce is singing a song for the fist dance at the inaugural ball.

groundcontrol @ 01/20/2009 at 8:39 pm

It’s incredibly ignorant to call someone racist because they didn’t support your candidate. There were many people with valid questions about Obama’s readiness to lead, especially in such turbulent times.

I hope that he is hugely successful and surrounds himself with wise advice. I also hope he has the self confidence and wisdom to heed such advice. I hope that he is brave enough to take what may have to be hard positions and lead us out of an economic quagmire and keep us safe.

On a more shallow note: Michelle’s outfit is a bust. It looks cheap and dowdy. But more importantly that material and the bling at her neckline are completely inappropriate for daytime wear. Who in the world is advising her? I am dreading tonight’s balls. I hope she makes a wiser choice. These things end up in the Smithsonian.

The speech was also very pedestrian and delivered with little passion. I think Obama realized this during its delivery. I wonder if it was that obnoxious little pisher, Jon Favreau, who wrote it?

Aretha, however, soared. She’s earned the right to wear that god awful seagull on her head. Re. Lowry was very moving. Wonderful to see him up there. A nice anecdote to the ridiculous nonsense that was the homophobic Rick Warren.

Here’s hoping the Dow recovers somewhat overnight and boosts Obama’s confidence levels. We should all hope for the best.

God Bless our new (authentic leader) President Obama, Mrs. Obama, Malia, Sacha, and Grandmother Robinson. God Bless every American and our Families!!!!!

I’m so proud of Obama. I belive in everything he says, I trust him and I think he’s going to bring us all that faith and all that hope that we lost.
It’s amazing what is happening to de USA. I can say with all the proud and the faith that I feel in my heart that we’ve chosen right.
LOVE YOU OBAMA!

Prediction now with a l i b e r a l s o c i a l i s t President of the Dems:
Hyper-inflation
Hyper-unemployment
Stock market crash
Vietnam style ground war in Afghanistan
Major terrorist attack in USA
Oil restrictions push gas prices in the stratosphere, deeping the depression
******************************************************************************************

Thank you for reminding us of BUSH’S LEGACY.

Congrats to our new president!

Everyone is in such a hurry for some kind of change that they don’t even use common sense. We all want change. But can we trust a man that has Hussein for a middle name with our war on terrorism? I know I’m being judgemental but hey I haven’t forgotten 9/11 and what terrorists are capable of. It’s pathetic that everyone let’s celebrities persuade them to vote for. Get the facts and then decide on your own! You all complain about Bush but what would life had been like if Gore or Kerry had win? No matter what you always get criticized for trying to do the right thing. And for the record I thought Bush was great! So next time you vote, vote because you believe in what he stands for, the facts, not who endorses him.

Obama spent 170 million on his inauguration oh my gosh what does that tell you. We are in a mess and he spends that much on his inauguration. Not racist I don’t care if he’s white brown orange or pink but our economy is a mess he spends that much!! All I can say is wow. Oh by the way he is the first president to have tho Dow go down on the inauguration. It has not gone down this much before. Just wait people he just became president today give him a few months. Oh god help us. We are gonna have another terrorist attack on our soil before you know it. Because I say this cause Obama does not even want to talk about the war!! It’s all about energy not protecting our country!! God bless everyone!!

Whether or not Obama fixes everything, or only aids in the recovery, he will be better than George Bush and his downward spiral.

Angel-HEart @ 01/20/2009 at 9:20 pm

I think it’s sad that you get on a website and make these ridiculous comments about the man that’s going to lead this country for next 4 years. You don’t realize how simple minded you sound when you ridicule a man because his middle name is Hussein. He didn’t name his self, his white mother and his black father named him. You people really need to stop acting childish. You need to have faith in Obama believe that he’ll do a great job, he is our new president.

Obama rules life.

Michelle is still not looking good.

Pitchajarun @ 01/20/2009 at 9:52 pm

Wow… some of u americans really justify what the rest of the world thinks about you….. stupid, arrogant, ignorant & vain…. you finally get rid of that lump brained bush and can’t even embrace the hope of what could be… thank god for the americans who voted for Obama, thankfully you are the majority. I’m happy for America, at least you no longer look like a country of fools being led by a brainless war-mongering bobble head. (still can’t understand how braindead bush was voted in twice!!!!)

If you only knew how ignorant you sound for judging someone by their middle name!!He didnt name himself when he was born but then again you also put bush and great in the same sentence

The Dow has been going down almost everyday.Just because it is the day of the inauguration that doesnt make it automatically stop going down.You cant change our economy status in ONE DAY use your brain to think before you speak

To Obamaismypresident,

honestly I could care less about being considered ignorant.. I feel the right to be able to judge. It’s a god given right. And like I said 9/11 is reason I don’t trust. If his parents gave him that middle name, that can only suggest on how he was raised. the man wouldn’t even salute the flag and was not proud to be an american? It’s pathetic. Bush was the best. But everyone only cares about themselves. Selfish!

OBAMAISMYPRESIDENT @ 01/20/2009 at 10:04 pm

Well lets just leave it at this you can have your opinion…I’ll have mine but either way BUSH is gone and OBAMA is President now whether you want to accept it or not!!!

obamarockz009 @ 01/20/2009 at 10:36 pm

All you hateful ******* need 2 go some where else… Nobody cares about your opinions… Sorry to tell u but Barack Obama is the new President of the Unites States and you just need to get over yourselves and accept that.. Dont hate because Bush left all this crap for Obama to clean up… He is gonna be a great president and you know it.. The only reason that you are makin such a fuss over it is because you dont want a BLACK MAN in the white house… Well, SORRY… but you need to get over yourselves and get a life and stop trying to take the joy that we feel for OBAMA being PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA!! If you hate OBAMA being president so much, why are you visiting this particular page ABOUT him? You are just wasting your time, because nobody cares what you have to say… =)

LIKE I SAID BEFORE… GET THE **** OVER YOURSELVES AND GET A LIFE!

justacitizenwhocares @ 01/20/2009 at 11:01 pm

I’m not a racist; however the dream of MLK was for All men to be created equal and so forth….yet this presidency is based on “THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT. Obama is NOT the First African-American president; he is THE FIRST BI-RACIAL PRESIDENT. And when everyone braces that idea, then the country can meld together without racism.

What is the deal with people anymore? Everything is racist when it comes to disliking a candiate. Racist this and racist that. I could care less if Obama was white black or polka dotted. I just don’t like him. If you say i’m racist, then go ahead. You’re the one that’s being racist.

screwobama @ 01/20/2009 at 11:14 pm

you guys are all idiots the economy goes through ups and downs and yes this is one of the worst its ever been but its not just from bush, if you dumbasses didnt know probably because it wasnt on mtv but if you didnt know the democrats were pretty much in control even when bush was president & basically the economy can only go up from here and obama will take all the credit when in fact hell do nothing because he is a piece of **** who got celebs to payy for him to make it as far as he did, you will all regret it just wait.

##########

I’m sure you don’t mean it but this is an incredibly shallow notion. The world hates us and now because we have an African American President they will start to love us. Sorry, dear, but that is very naive. It doesn’t work that way. They honestly don’t care what race our president is. Many of these countries have serious racial and religious and class discrimination that makes the U.S. look like heaven on earth. They care about how we relate to them and what we can do for them.

I am concerned about the Dow. So much about the economy is based on the intangibles such as confidence in the market and confidence in new leadership and its plans for the economy. I thought we would see more recovery after the election and wit the prospect of new leadership – even with so many of President Clinton’s economic team joining the Obama administration. But it still is not responding. I’ve never had a lot of confidence in Obama’s ability to correct the economy but I remain hopeful and pray that I am wrong. Worse though is that Wall Street seems to share my doubts.

People need to accept that there will always be disagreements over politicians and presidents. It doesn’t make anyone a racist or a sore loser. It’s just the way it has always been. SInce when can’t people feel free to criticize their political leaders?

Seems as though poor Michelle has made a second unfortunate choice for her inaugural gown. Please get her a proper stylist.

LOW CLASS AND NO CLASS @ 01/21/2009 at 12:30 am

That group of low class grown men booing Bush and “singing na na na na good bye” must have made Obama cringe. Here is his big moment and his supporters are acting like ignorant children.

STFU

I just really love the way so many people love to blame the goverment for the lack of jobs and the economy. Please don’t tell me that you really think the goverment is going to change basic economics?
They cannot make a business give more demand for their products just so you can keep your job.
Supply and Demand.
Now we were attacked on american soil. Opps did you forget? 9/11
We cannot afford to be lax in this war. And by the way throughout history there are allways going to be those who oppose wars. Even when they are being attacked on their own soil.
Lets wise up here and look at the whole pic. NO ONE MAN or goverment is going to make everything roses and give us all a new pony.
I for one do not doubt for one minute, the ability of those who oppose Americans to enter our country and live amoung us and one day do the unthinkable again.
Will our goverment be there for us ? Will we feel confidence in their guidance? I am concerned by his lack of experience. He had questions about his birth certificate and he waited to release it. Why?

He better succeed because if he doesn’t it is wont be good for traditional Democrats AND Republicans. Those of you rubbing your hands in anticipation better take a cold shower because if he fails it will be devastating and that sort of thing leads to REAL change, the change WE DON’T WANT TO SEE. Ron Paul in 2012? If things don’t work out it won’t be Sarah Palin a desperate country will be turning too, regardless what the machinery of both parties will want. So, we should all wish him well because we all lose if he fails.

Donna @ 01/20/2009 at 3:22 pm

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.

But please don’t try Australia. I’m sure we don’t want someone like you.

What you say is absolutely true. This is the part I don’t get of Obama bashers. Bash him before he is elected. Volunteer and vote against him getting elected.

-
But here he is, elected. And you’d think self interest would cause people to pray for his success because it would be the Americans own success. If Obama fails, then so do most Americans.

-
All these Obama bashers who want to migrate – all I can say is, I hope it’s not to Australia. But – they probably don’t. Our taxes are higher, our government is bigger, we aren’t a super power, and we have UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE. The last one is sure to be a turn off. LOL

Boy what did we ever do to the haters in Australia? Talk about stereotypes. You don’t even know us and yet you think we are all one way. That is really prejudice

What happened with the green gloves that don’t match the green shoes, fire the designer who allowed her to walk out like that. I am worried about the White House renovations, there should definitely be rules about what you can do to a public property, $ 100,000 can buy a lot of regrettable changes to what at this time reflects class and taste, so I hope Michelle hires the right people to interpret her taste, as whoever matched the gloves and shoes should not be allowed anywhere near a paint brush or wallpaper at the White House, as the fashion faux pas will now be forever documented at the Smithsonian (maybe they will forget to include the shoes and gloves). Really, would Carla Bruni have allowed someone to make her wear that? Maybe they should have lunch and talk about fashion, Michelle needs a fashion BFF, as whoever is doing the last check before she walks out like that should be fired.

I’m very happy ! Good bye Bush =) hello Obama !!!!!!
He is very the best of all the president and I want to say to emilie and donna that you are just racist ( that’s what I think ) but the choice is up to you ….

The Obama’s daughters looked so gorgeous, they are just so adorable and didn’t at all look phased by all the attention they were getting. I wish them all the luck in the world.

i can’t believe so many of you dumbasses are still isolating yourselves due to party preferences. shows you just how crappy politics can be. i’m not going to say i’m behind this man 100%, because i’m not. however, i believe in many of the same ideals he holds and i hope-no, i pray that this nation can pull itself back together after the shithole bush left us in.
and to those who are saying he doesn’t have enough experience, or he doesn’t know what he’s doing-
do you have any ******* idea of who was “running” this country before him?
i, however, can agree. obama certainly doesn’t have the “experience” and definitely isn’t “seasoned enough” for the job, but if you’ve been conscious at any point in the last year and a half, you would know that whatever obama puts his mind to, he achieves. did any of you see THIS (inauguration) coming?
to be realistic, he probably won’t be able to get everything he wants done in office. mainly because he has to work through a bunch of old cranky men. he’s done some great stuff so far-reaching out to the Palestinian president and signing papers to close Gitmo.
yeah, he doesn’t have enough experience. not enough experience to make him an arrogant assfucker like the previous “president” who thought the only course of action was to finish what daddy started.

Prediction now with a l i b e r a l s o c i a l i s t President of the Dems:

Hyper-inflation
Hyper-unemployment
Stock market crash
Vietnam style ground war in Afghanistan
Major terrorist attack in USA
Oil restrictions push gas prices in the stratosphere, deeping the depression
Otherwise, things should be pretty much normal!

nr.16 has some serious race issues. Obama is an educated man as well as many other afro-americans, so stop refurring to blacks as non-educated koolaid drinkers. Bush was not very educated and yet the american people allowed him to run the country for 8 years, I wish that shoe had hit him right is his face, cause he totally deserved it!

I doubt Obama can clean up a war satisfactorily to all (now that he seems to advocate the notion that he is running not only America but the world). If he pulled the troops out to stop the bloodshed he makes Americans coward, gives American the title of the defeated (similar to which we got for pulling out of VN). If he committed the troops to fight for victory, he is not going to be able to claim that he cleans your so called “Bush’s mess” because we are not going to win. Afghans will fight till the last breath of their last citizen to keep their country out of control of another country, poor and oppressed they may be. This is something Americans of today don’t understand.

It wasn’t Obama who made the Inauguration happened. It’s his backers. Through history of mankind, no one inexperienced, little accomplished, little known person could become king without backers from the court of the previous king and there rich who hid in the dark pulling the strings of these backers.

I too hope the White House retain its understated, dignified elegance.

As for Michelle’s fashion sense, I agree with you. She should also avoid showing her muscular manly shoulders and the combination of red and black as worn in victory night.

2 Orchid,

Carla Bruni’s wardrobe with Dior could not have cost one million dollars. The suit and coat dress she wore run about 6K – 10K each at most. The dresses, if haute couture, could have been borrowed as she has figure model and Dior, being a French fashion house thus is patriotic, and also benefit greatly profit-wise from her image beaming around the world in TV and print, would gladly lend them to her, or give them to her free. After all, one of the perk of being Queen is getting these things almost free, if not free, and from all over the world too. The same could be said about jewelry and other gifts. Hence the Clintons tried to claim state gifts as theirs and moved those out of the White House when they left.

Every one is obsessed with president Obama, but how much do we really know about the man? No one thought to ask him the all important question, does he wear briefs or boxers?…
