Today was so historic, we were caught up until well past midnight watching the festivities, like everyone else who didn’t attend. tonight we’re going to let our friends tell you how they see it.
we start with the Man From PR – C.G. Salgado -
brothaman ain’t pullin no punches so read closely – he hits the nail on the head.
Hit It C.G.
And before anybody reaches out and slaps me, those shoes are his. Does anybody think that George W. Bush left a hole in D.C.? He practically sealed the hole when he boarded the “Executive One” helicopter.
The main theme of yesterday’s inauguration was the “moment”. This should not be misconstrued as a miracle, or that a divine providence has landed upon us to solve all our problems. And this misconception is going to give Obama a myriad of troubles.
President Barack Obama’s approval ratings are through the roof. These have nowhere else to go but down, especially if he doesn’t achieve everything the country is expecting him to do. Even though he’s not promising immediate results, the country has assigned him god-like characteristics.
We, the people of the United States should let President Obama start the engine, stand up, dust off, and rebuild our national trust. Because the Republic is strong.
Over at Phuck Politics they went off the heezie as per usual; but damn Weezie executing somebody and Bey doing a Lapdance on the Prez – Nawww baby we ain’t quite seein that one right there playa –
but you gone and Kick it :
Today marks the day that Barack Obama gets sworn in as President of the United States and since this huge jerk-off festival is costing taxpayers 150 million dollars, I feel like I have a say in what goes on. So here is a list of things that better happen today or the next time I travel up to Washington, I’m going to leave a flaming plastic bag of my shit on the front steps of the White House.
- Barack Obama wearing an all white business suit that makes P. Diddy jealous.
- Sean Hannity telling Barack Obama’s kids that Santa Claus isn’t real, then licking their face so he can taste their tears.
- Barack Obama executing whoever hired Garth Brooks to sing on Monday.
- Garth Brooks being beheaded by Lil Wayne and Jack Black.
- A gay transvestite Puerto Rican midget punching Rick Warren in the nuts then announcing they’re lovers.
- Nancy Pelosi stripped of her Speaker of the House status and pushed down the Capital steps.
- Beyonce giving Barack Obama a lap dance while Jay-z weeps in a corner.
- Dick Cheney getting stabbed in the heart by a homeless WWII veteran.
- The announcement that marijuana is now legal.
- George Bush dying in plane crash.
- Bill O’Reilly getting caught on his knees tossing Barney Frank’s salad.
- Glenn Beck getting hit by a bus.
- News that the new bailout money will go directly to the American people.
- And…Barack Obama agreeing to deport my old computer science teacher because he’s a dick.
Ms Bria Say She Tiiiiiiiiiired..
OHHHH YES, HE DID!
President Obama has added color AND swagger to the white house
I’m so tired of all of ads, shows, comments, blogs etcetc re: the Inauguration.
JUST DO IT ALREADY!!!
It’s not the Obama’s fault (I don’t think) that the media is trying to SHOVE Barack Obama’s Inaugural down our throats.
I GET IT.
I voted for him.
But when the media saturates mediums with 1 person…it has the opposite effect on me. I’m turning the TV, changing the radio station, clicking the x in the top right corner…cuz I’d rather WAIT until the day of instead of dealing with this fluff’n’ stuff.
President Obama, congratulations…and best wishes.
President Bush, get some sleep-it’s ez for us to say what we’d do if we were in your shoes, but we don’t really know unless we’re in them.
Best to you and your family.

:: whitehouse.gov now with Pres Obama’s imprint, and on it’s first day, slurs Bush Katrina response.
And so it begins. My Daddy always told me that the only way to change things is from the inside. I think Obama must have heard that too. From whitehouse.gov—bolding is mine:
President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.
President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude” in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.
President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.

January 20th, 2009Those are a few of the words of President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address – a very impressive and uplifting speech, delivered today on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol, in front of frozen, but unbowed millions of people.
Even though it appeared that Mr. Obama stumbled a bit during the actual swearing in ceremony, it was because Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who was administering the oath without a written text made a mistake and Obama hesitated, because he knew it. Not important, as everything proceeded smoothly, even though the actual oath was administered a few minutes later than planned and anticipated.
We wish the new administration wisdom, courage, integrity and foresight, as the challenges are many and all encompassing.
The attendance at this historic event was unprecedented. The National Mall area was turned into a security fortress. There probably wasn’t a single, vacant spot not only on the mall – all the way from the U.S. Capitol, to the Lincoln Memorial – but thousands, upon thousands of people crowded into every available space in all the side streets. The mood was buoyant and extremely upbeat, despite sub-freezing temperatures. Many, who staked out their place on the mall hours ahead of time succumbed to the cold and were treated for hypothermia.
However you slice it, it was a very unique event.
