What have you Americans done, I was right to be concerned, this is not a start of the beginning, but the beginning of the end of America, God Bless and Help America

Obama inauguration: Will you be there?

Not even if you paid me! 

 

I won't be there in person.  I won't watch it on TV live.  I won't watch it on rerun.  I won't watch even a part of it on the news.  He's just going to lie again under oath and I have no desire to witness the worst elected official this country has ever seen.  So to answer your question, NO!

Michael, you just took the words right out of my mouth. Ditto that! Now, I might think about taping it so that hopefully, someday, I can show my grandson the worst piece of human flesh to have ever occupied the WH.  Maybe he can use it in a history report for extra credit. Then I might could say the jerk did something good for somebody because he sure hasn't done anything good to date!

I wouldn't walk across the street to see this inauguration. as Michael A. said "He's just going to lie again under oath and I have no desire to witness the worst elected official this country has ever seen." Well said Michael A.

Too bad it is all so true, this nightmare we are experiencing--and will have on our hands for the next 4 years---unbelievable that this has happened to our great Country.

HELL  NO!!!!   Didn't watch the first one and won't watch the 2nd one......and I will quickly change the channel if any clips are shown.....I have no desire to listen to this liar destroy  America.   Hang on tight Americans......it's going to be a mighty rough four years.....I only pray the media and the liberals wake up before it's too late......if not......we could very well have a king and queen living in the WH.

NOT ON YOUR LIFE!!! I can't stand to watch blips of him on the news without getting sick to my stomach so I sure won't watch a hypocrite swear on the Bible of Martin Luther King and George Washington or Lincoln, can't remember which one it was anyway..he's a freaking hypocrite!!!

We can't blame Obama, the blame is clearly at the feet of your fellow Americans for electing him in the first place, see what the next 4 years bring, can't see much good points though, maybe more of the same or worse, bloody glad I am British

I've been thinking, not wise sometime, they say in the UK, but America is the only Westen Country to have a Muslim Leader, not rubbing it in of cause, only upset and not pleased that this is not Romney inauguration

I would however, like a copy of the presidential  portrait,so I can throw darts at it!

Ancil, I never knew Darts is played in the US, when I visit the US, I will give you my contact details to yourself through care 2 private email before I leave the UK, use the contact detail, then we will arrange to play a few sets of 501 and 301 against each other.

Could you advise also, do Americans play snooker, the game is similar to Pool,if so do you play this also, if you do, we could find time for a 36 frame match.

Sounds like fun...fun...fun...Ancil!! You will have to see if you can hook up with Ray!!

Ray I do believe that some Americans play snooker...I could be wrong on that one but it seems like I have heard of it here in the US and darts...heavens yes..we have Dart Tournaments here in the US. They may be small and local but we do havbe them!! I even have 2 different dart boards..but we never play them at my house..LOL..we use to!

You are right it is partly the American peoples fault that voted for him or who voted for someone other than Romney! But Obama put all kinds of LIES out there for these misinformed gullible people who voted for him so he is in fact to blame for a lot of it!! If he would have been truthful and told the people exactly what his intentions are for this country, I am sure at least half of those who voted for him would not have!! Then it just shows also how many people don't have the common sense in order to distinguish between a fraud and someone telling the truth...in spite of...seeing all of his hypocritical actions and words! Now THAT is sad!!

I wouldn't trust someone who would lie about his own mother, as did Obama's wife too,  and I heard Reid did too? Well, Obama and Michelle did at any rate, any farther than ...... I was going to say any further than a bullet can fly,  but then thought better of it.

With yourselves not watching or going to see Obama inauguration, this will be shown on the British TV, not doubt Obama is paying for this out of your Tax's, to push up the viewing figures,

There again is something the taxpayers should have a say about. The SOB should pay for it out of his own damned salary.
