  • WE ARE DOOMED

    Very sad day. Very sad indeed. But, for those of us who belong to Jesus Christ, we know that our citizenship is in heaven, awaiting our arrival when our Lord calls us home. Don’t loose hope. The US was a great place while it lasted but it isn’t home. Obama will doom us all.

    Very sad day. Very sad indeed. But, for those of us who belong to Jesus Christ, we know that our citizenship is in heaven, awaiting our arrival when our Lord calls us home. Don’t loose hope. The US was a great place while it lasted but it isn’t home. Not with this man.

  • Are You Kidding Me?!?!

    Dear Shocked, Saddened, Doomed and Stupid: Read your Bible! It says that we should respect our leaders, for the Lord chooses them. I personally found that harder to do with Bush, but to each his own. Grrrr, I hate it when people preach without knowing what they’re talking about!!!!!

    Hated the color of Michelle’s dress, but liked the dress. No matter who you voted for, this was a historic day for our country, and a day I’d never thought I’d live to see.

    Didn’t miss a moment of MSNBC’s coverage, especially since it was apparent that Keith Olbermann was becoming irritated by the long-winded
    Chris Matthews. There were times when Olbermann and Rachel Maddow couldn’t get a word in because of Matthews’ run-on sentences.
    When Matthews announced he had to leave to prepare for his “Hardball” show, Olbermann barely acknowledged it.

    Michelle does not look good in yellow and the material looked as if she went into a Liilian August store, bought a pair of really expensive curtians and sewed them together. Roberts goofed, and it’s like Clinton to go with Chadwicks. Still let’s see what the man is made of. Go forward, people.

    I know it was a star studded even, but why was Sean Preston at the inauguration?
    Seriously, who was the kid behind Obama?

    Roberts didn’t really pause in the right place. I had a idea it was supposed to go like wedding vows, pastor says something, pause, now you say something…Oh well, I guess Obama and Roberts were both nervous.

    I thought the inauguration was pretty fantastic. After the last 8 years, it’s nice to feel inspired again.

    Aretha’s hat was over the top but then again so is she (in a good way).
    Michelle Obama outfit (both style and color) made her stand out and she can pretty much wear anything she wants and can carry it off.

    i called my mom just to talk about Aretha’s hat! XD then we stayed on the phone while watching the rest of the inauguration on cnn.

    NBC. Brian Williams draws me in and Tom Brokaw keeps me there.

    Ok, Cheney in his wheelchair is very reminiscent of mean Old Man Potter from “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
    “Shove me up! Shove me up!”

    If people would put half as much energy into making the world a better place as they do hating on GW Bush, our country might actually get somewhere towards unity. I’m disgusted watching the inauguration footage on TV — any mention of Bush and the crowds react with Pavlovian boos and hisses. Take a note from our new president and put childish things behind you.

  • LC

    Well Nancy, he’s back with you in Texas now…Y’all enjoy!
