Just heard Rush discussing this and the fact the left is calling our devotion to the Constitution a “fetish”...apparently they’re going over the edge that it will be read aloud.

I might be mistaken- but I’d wager they know parts of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals better than they know the Constitution..

Thanks for the Inauguration Day Thread. We’ll see another one in 2013, hopefully with a happier ending for the Senate and the Presidency

What the new speaker needs to do, after being sworn in, is slam the gavel down and say “Let the games begin.”

I remember when Bush was President, both Sheila Jackson Lee and Cynthia McKinney would run to the center aisle before the SOTU in order to get a kiss or hug from GWB.

I noticed that Boehner got a huge amount of applause....and the clerk at the front looked pissed and pursed her lips.

Nancy didn’’t get much applause. LOL!

Prayed by Rev. Daniel Coughlin at the start of the session. His prayer is posted on his website, but he did deviate from that posting:

"Let us pray, Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful believers and kindle within them a fire of divine love, that they may be truly open to respond to your word and to the needs of your people.

Lord, send forth your spirit and renew the face of the earth. May the spirit of the living God descend upon this chamber, that from here may come forth good news for the poor, healing for the broken-hearted, and renewed hope in the nation.

Let there go forth a proclaimation to the people that captivity has ended and the action of true politics will set this nation free. By setting single minded self-interests aside in the search for the common good. May a just society flourish with the gifts of your spirit and be recognised by others for it's equal justice, unity and peace.

Lord, may the 112th congress of the United States of America be an instrument of your goodness with abiding laws embraced and clarity in policy statements reaching beyond institutional thinking and public opinion polls. May every human life in this country be renewed with dignity and purpose; so we may truly be the glory given to your name as the free children of God, made in your image and conformed to your saving grace, both now and forever--Amen.

No, they are voting for her as minority leader. The count for present other is at 9. Wonder who that was?

Its a roll call and members are voicing their vote. Boehner, Pelosit or other

In regard to “other/present,” My count so far is 3 for Schuler and 1 for cooper, with the rest being “Present.”

I may be off by 1 or 2.

I can’t help but see the contrast in the television shots. The many, many children seated among the very people who have saddled them with Herculean debt and greatly increased odds of a less prosperous, even dismal, future.

No. It is ONLY bi-partisan when Republicans vote with Democrats on what Democrats want.
