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.

    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.

    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).

    Go suck a... Says:


    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 Says:

    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????

    Hurry Up Says:

    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.

    Al Says:

    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.

    whatever Says:

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

    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 !
