Crowds may have flocked to the National Mall to see President Obama make history in 2009, but the team behind the president´s 2013 inauguration bash later this month are bracing themselves for a ton of empty seats. The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won´t be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol o watch Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama´s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, January 21.

I’d like to go....If only to boo through a bullhorn.
If Obama can gin up millions of votes to fill voting booths, I think he can probably find a few more Democrats to fill inauguration venues.
Free iphone for all will get the leechers in the bleachers.
Will he be using Lincoln’s Koran this time or his own?
I literally would not go for a million dollars.
Don’tcha just know it? Oh yeah. You “won” the election, Papa Mubama. Thaaat’s the ticket. Everybody loooves you.
Loved the comments.
He only needed 2 or 3 to generate thousands of votes. Multiplied by a thousand you get ....
Maybe people are more aware than we know. If this is true, I have genuine hope for our Country.
i-Obamaphones for all attendees: “You sign up. If you’re... If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability...”
He will cancel his performance if the venue isn’t sold out. It’s in his contract, listed under “narcissistic demands”
What does it matter if 1 or 1 million show up? That won’t change the election results!
Much harder to manufacture bodies in seats than it is to manufacture votes from voters.
Aside from the the taker crowd is not gonna show up for the show in the cold if there is nothing in it for them.
Exactly!! And, agree that they won't show unless something's in it for them...like more free stuff!
Might as well watch “Snapped”...it’s the same premise. Stolen election and a nut bag who kills an American Ambassador, Navy Seals and Military personnel (Benghazi). Next it’s Baby Boomers with the Death Panels via Obamacare.
SCJ Roberts go it right....the SCOTUS isn’t responsible for who is elected but they sure could have kept it balanced.....some of us who aren’t the 47% still believe in the balance of power, Sir.
Got this in email:
In the coming New Year, 2013, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.
This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.
....The other involves a groundhog.
Let’s see if they pick up their garbage this time around.
“What do you do for a living?”
It’s a new verb. I disability, you disability, he disabilities.
“To disability, or not to disability. That is the question.”
This is the Obama legacy.
