The pictures speak pretty loud about the feelings of our country

This is the D.C. Mall when R.Regan was inaugurated back in 81. I look for other pics from roughly the same vantage point but not luck

Here is the D.C. Mall today for our current President B. Obama today

Quite a stark contrast with the participation from regular Joes.

I found his speech today interesting. We will see if he can fill the shoes that have been set out for him

He is now MY president, so I will support him to the fullest extent of the law and constitution. I don't believe in taking the liberal path and spend my time trying to tear him down because I don't fully agree with his views. He was elected by the majority of the people in this country and that is what should happen when you live in a democracy, sometimes you are not in the majority of the opinion.

Amen, like the man or not he IS the elected Chief Executive. Thats the system we have and thank God for it.

But theres nothing wrong with having a little fun now and then.

Oh no, I will use this blog to point out any unsavory decisions or behavior. But I refuse to act like all the legions of liberals who spent the past 8 yrs bashing former President Bush because they couldn't grasp the concept of being part of the solution and not the problem.

Well, I think a large majority of people were there purely because of the history of the moment. Like Obama or not, it was a very historic day for our country. And while I agree with you that he is our Chief Executive and should be respected as such, unfortunetly I think that is meaning less and less. He may have been voted by a majority of the people, but look at the choices we were presented. People say if you don't vote, you can't complain, but with canidates like we've had the last few elections, I strongly disagree.
