President Obama was just ceremonially inaugurated (the actual inauguration was yesterday) and is giving his speech right now.

I've watched a bunch of them and I must admit I do enjoy the spectacle and speeches and such...plus, I like to dish on everybody in attendance.... lol

So far the most interesting was Antonin Scalia...I swear he was standing there as jolly as Santa Claus throughout the whole thing. No Bush or Cheney sightings though, although I understand that poppy Bush is still recuperating,

So what did y'all think of the speech? I like to watch on Cspan so I don't have to deal with commercials or talking heads. I may turn to MSNBC later on to see if Chris Matthews is swooning like a schoolgirl this time... lol

Thought the speech was very good. Touched on so many issues - gay rights - equal pay for women - safety of our children (i.e. Newtown) - climate change - economic inequality - immigration.... it was all there.

I thought he spoke with conviction. I often talk about the importance of coalition building and it will be interesting to see if we can get a more persuasive one this time around.

Rachel is good isn't she? I think she sets just the right tone between solemnity, thoughtfulness and light heartedness.

The Big Story: Inauguration Day 2013

President Barack Obama took his ceremonial oath of office today, beginning his second term as the country’s 44th president. Addressing a divided nation represented by a polarized Congress, Obama stressed the importance of seeking common ground in Washington. “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together,” he said.

Obama already had been sworn in at a private White House ceremony on Jan. 20, the date mandated by the Constitution. Since that fell on a Sunday, the public ceremony outside the U.S. Capitol was delayed. That shift meant the country’s first black president celebrated his second inauguration on the day Americans honor civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

Diversity was a big part of the day’s ceremonies, both in Obama’s speech and in the lineup. The crowd of about 700,000 — large but not as massive as the estimated 1.8 million people who flocked to Washington, D.C., in 2009 — heard an invocation from former NAACP chairperson Myrlie Evers-Williams, songs from Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson, and a reading from Cuban-American poet Richard Blanco, the first Latino and the first gay inaugural poet.

We’ve collected some of the most striking photos of the events and will continue to add new images as the celebrations continue:

LMAO! I missed that.

Somebody said something to Obama when he first walked into that room that he did not like...you should have seen the look he gave that dude.

They should put together a video of funny inaugural moments. lol
