It's his second term. No more elections. Why not have an Imam? Boy, wouldn't that blow up some heads. Personally, I don't see why there has to be any prayers at all, but then, if that's what they want, o.k.

I'd live to see him call it a breakfast and drop the prayer word. Don't invite a pastor at all. What an ANAZING idea. Keeping god out if the government. Wish I had thought if it.

I think what might be even worse, is if he would invite the 'good reverend Wright' for the inaugeration..........

I agree. What ever happened to the "eall of separation between church and state" ? The civil goverments' functions should be completely separated from religion. Not doing so is a violation of the First Amendment.

The Obamaniac is a profoundly Evil man and should be impeached immediately as some members of congress have already called for.

You're going to take the position that this isn't an official government function? Are you sure about that?

Get FREE tickets from your Senator or Congress person...I DID! I have been to an Inauguration. Albeit GW BUSH....went with my mother. Had to be in DC for a funeral on the 19th and so we stayed over. That is ok. Lots of standing and cold feet.

Just because you don't like something does not make it impeachable...LIST THE CHARGES.

Yes, they charge for front row seats at the Inauguration.

The inauguration is a PUBLIC ACT. He MUST be sworn into office to be POTUS. CHARGING MONEY by an elected political official for the U.S. CITIZENS to witness an official public act IS IMPEACHABLE.

IMPEACH THIS BUM !

NEXT !

(If the mayor of the city I live in charged the citizens to witness his public swearing in, do you think THAT is legal ?!)
