Somewhere along the way - between the war on women, the class warfare and the egregious lies on the part of Obama's ad campaigns - we forgot about job growth and economic recovery.
Hope Obama didn't use the phrase "let us continue" in his second inaugural speech like so many second term presidents have done.
I couldn't watch it even though I wanted to see my daughter.

You can't tell the truth, can you??

'They' didn't screw it up in 2009, John Roberts screwed it up.

And he performed a do-over.

So will your pigheadedness admit that Obama was given the oath of office twice in both elections??

Or will you cling to your stupidity??

This President Can—and Must—Claim a Mandate to Govern
With his second inauguration, Barack Obama will become the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to renew his tenure after having won more than 51 percent of the vote in two consecutive elections.
More importantly, in a political sense, he will be the first Democrat since Franklin Delano Roosevelt to have won mandates from the majority of the American people in two consecutive elections.
This is the perspective that Americans should bring to the inaugural festivities. We should expect a great deal from Barack Obama. Despite four years of battering by Fox and Limbaugh and the Tea Party and Mitch McConnell, he has been re-elected with a higher percentage of the popular vote than John Kennedy in 1960, Richard Nixon in 1968, Jimmy Carter in 1976, Ronald Reagan in 1980, Bill Clinton in 1992 or 1996 or George Bush in 2000 or 2004.
Obama’s mandate extends beyond himself. His party has increased its Senate majority and Democrats earned 1.4 million more votes in House races than Republicans. Gerrymandering and money kept Republican control of the House, but that opposition party is in such disarray that the president really does have an opening to make something of his mandate
Obama must seize that opportunity as an essential part of making the case for bold executive orders and a bold legislative agenda that will bring not just the hope but the change he promised in what now seems like a very distant 2008 campaign. The president has in the transition period since the 2012 election displayed a willingness to push harder, to go bigger, and it has yielded significant progress not just on gun-safety issues but in the long struggle against the Republican austerity agenda that makes a diety of deregulating away consumer and environmental protections, tearing the social-safety net and cutting taxes for wealthy campaign donors.

There is no mandate in the Constitution.

The role of the President is to enforce the laws passed by Congress, not to dictate to Congress.

For the idiots in the class, Snopes is owned by George Soros.
And, you have already got one of Snopes articles shoved up your ass, the one about Obama sabotaging the rescue of the American held captive at sea by muslim Samali pirates.
Please come with something reputable. Soros just doesn't quite reach the bar on that.

Everyone would have been a lot better off if FDR had placed the priority more on the free market and giving it a little more time to fix itself with minimal government assistance.

Now, look where we are. More people on government assistance than any other time in our history - and the numbers are growing.
I'm sure racists like you and your peers, like bobby, are endearing themselves to the minority vote.

He was given the oath of office yesterday by John Roberts, per the Constitution on 20 Jan.
He was given the oath again today, by John Roberts, in front of millions.
So, your oath taken once is a lie.
I have proof of this.
You seem to enjoy making a fool of yourself.
You're quite good at it.
Yawn. This idiot keeps posting the same crap. You should try getting out more.

It was both unfortunate and disastrous that the Republican Party nominated Barry Goldwater as its candidate for President of the United States.
Following the Goldwater campaign, Republicans won five of the next six Presidential elections.
