    All those Americans who hoped that in victory a magnanimous President would move toward reconciliation of a divided people were bitterly disappointed by Barack Obama’s inaugural speech. In yet another partisan campaign speech, Mr. Obama suggested that he holds all those who disagree with his views to be malevolent saboteurs who must be run over. Did he characterize the profound differences of opinion on the role of government as inspired by love of country? No. He essentially told America that he holds nearly half of the nation’s citizens in utter contempt. Such arrogance is not leadership; it is so...

    Bill Clinton isn't often wrong when it comes to politics, but his assertion in his 1996 State of the Union Address that "the era of big government is over" was a bit premature. In light of President Obama's Second Inaugural Address, the era of big government has just begun. The reliably liberal columnist Dana Milbank of The Washington Post exhibited refreshing honesty when he wrote of Obama's speech, "...it failed to rise to the moment." The president's address was more campaign rhetoric than visionary. He even lowered himself to reference Mitt Romney's inelegant remark about "takers" versus makers. Obama's comment...
  • Massive Anti-Obama Rally Planned for Inauguration Day

    nspired by concerns of unemployment, the economy, Benghazi, and matters of foreign policy; organizers are promoting a “Massive Anti-Obama Rally @ Obama’s Inauguration Day.” Their goal? 500,000+ protesters armed with signs identifying the reason for their participation in the rally. The invitation expresses the following: “If you are unsatisfied with President Barack Obama’s reelection win and you further feel that he will ultimately destabilize America completely, then let us join together with bold Anti-Obama signs clearly stating our main grievances…

    Check out this inauguration day “Presidential Pledge” video produced by aging starlet Demi Moore and her son -- oops -- husband Ashton Kutcher. It’s a perfect stage for a few big stars and a ton of wannabe big stars to reveal the depth of their newly discovered love for America. Here’s how the Moore and Kutcher describe their work: “Reflecting Barack’s call for change, the film features over 50 of the biggest stars in Hollywood revealing how they plan to personally participate in keeping America strong, proud and green.” We’re into pop culture in a big way here at IHTM....

    WSJ: Obama Breaks Pledge on Inauguration Donations Friday, January 9, 2009 12:14 PM By: Jim Meyers A full 90 percent of donations to fund Barack Obama’s Jan. 20 inauguration have come from well-heeled fundraisers — including Wall Street executives whose companies have received federal bailout money. A total of 207 fundraisers have collected $24.8 million of the $27.3 million in donations disclosed by Obama through Thursday, according to an analysis by Public Citizen commissioned by The Wall Street Journal. Slightly more than 2,000 donors accounted for the $27.3 million raised, but 378 of those people each contributed the maximum $50,000...

    President-elect Barack Obama's inaugural committee today announced the theme of his swearing-in -- "Renewing America's Promise" -- and the preliminary schedule. "At this moment of great challenge and great change, renewing the promise of America begins with renewing the idea that in America, we rise or fall as one nation and one people," Obama said in a statement. "That sense of unity and shared purpose is what this Inauguration will reflect." Here's the preliminary schedule of official inaugural events:

    Observing one of the more obvious idiosyncrasies concerning President Bush one can always tell when his heart fully believes what his mouth is saying. Contrast the inauguration speech given on Thursday against his occasional press conferences and interviews, and the differences are night and day. In settings outside of a "big soulful moment," like parrying with the press corps, or even the 2004 State of the Union speech, Bush does not rise to the moment. For in those settings, it is not Bush the visionary, but rather Bush the functionary.

    January 18, 2005 – On Thursday, an estimated $40 million worth of inaugural pomp and circumstance will only temporarily triumph over an incalculable record of deceit and error. Of course, some might say it's tacky to rain on the president's parade, but two crucial news stories compel it. First came the report, confirmed by the White House, that the fruitless search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq had officially but secretly ended shortly before Christmas without, of course, any sign of the much discussed weapons that were such a critical justification for the war in the first place. This...

    Security Threat Or Embarrassment? Written by Cindy Pena Last Updated: 1/16/2005 2:50:08 PM The FBI and police agencies are on the lookout tonight for a police vehicle stolen in Northwest Washington Friday morning. But that's not all that was taken. Cindy Pena's Report Inaugural preparations are in the final stages. Decorations along Pennsylvania Ave. are flying high, while down low man hole covers are searched and sealed. At the capitol, visitors can still walk up First St. to see the West side of the building but for now, there's no getting closer. Many people say with security so tight,...

    I am still in shock. Here we are, less than twenty days from the inaguration of W. part II and John Conyers is still protesting the election in Ohio! My first question is why? Didn't his buddy Michael Moore have hundred of election day observers with video cameras stationed all around the state looking for trouble? They found none, but that isn't good enough for John. Conyers is claiming there were serious election irregularities and "significant disenfranchisement" of Ohio voters. As claim of this, he and his buddies have compiled a 102 page report listing what they say is enough...
