Obama’s Inauguration: Interesting Take by The LEFT on Inauguration … Worst Inauguration Ever …

 

The best laid plans of mice and men …

Wow, who would have though and coming from the LEFT, Fire Dog Lake says, “Worst. Inauguration. Ever.” Is it possible that “The Chosen One” could do wrong? A golden Willie Wonka ticket did not promise you a special moment with The One. Under performing as seen by the Left, is this a sign of things to come.

That’s right, despite having in hand magic purple tickets, and lining up hours before the gates opened, I saw nothing. I heard, beyond the guns, nothing.

I followed all the signs, I went to the appointed spot. . . and what? There was almost no one who had a clue of what was to happen next. Some people who seemed to know what they were talking about stood on the back of a garbage truck and shouted–sans any amplification–so that all anyone could make out was that they were pointing in a certain direction. Most of us followed.

Honestly, what did people expect when the mass of humanity grew to what it became? Maybe people will get an understanding of what happens to logistics when events become large. A simple planned event like an Inauguration can get messed up, image what it is like to logistically deal with an unplanned event like Hurricane Katrina? Or manage a war. That’s reality, not speech rhetoric. Interesting concept that the best laid plans … don’t always work out they way they are supposed to … even for The One. Let this be a lesson to the left of past events that were overwhelmed by the enormity of the circumstances.

The Other McCain stated, it fell flat as Obama’s inauguration speech underwhelmed. Maybe he should have left it to the speech writers after all.

People chanted, “Let us in.” People chanted, “We have tickets.” People chanted “we are purple,” waving their precious 4×6 inch tickets in the air.

And then they just started begging and shouting. Let us in. We have tickets. We’ve been here for hours. Let us in.

And then it was noon. And everything stopped

      Why does everything written on this site come off as some deranged 5 year old ranting? Does it all have to be so negative?

      Of course my comments will never clear the moderators.

      Communists.

      The left must whine about everything. they are in for a big let down I guess.

      And so it was with the Universal Health Care system.
      At the hospital gates the people gathered, shouting,
      begging, “we have healthcare”, “we are entitled”, let
      us in! But, alas, the limits of funding kicked in and
      everything stopped. Dr. ‘Lincoln’ had left the building.

      Please pass the APCs and BandAids, thanks.

      I totally agree J.R.!! Why does everything to do with Obama on this site have to be so negative!! Instead of commenting on how a few people were dissapointed with logistics and seating space, why not point out that of the 2 MILLION people that showed up to watch there was not ONE ARREST!!!! People for the most part, were overjoyed to be there witnessing history. I love this site for the Holloway and other missing person/crime stories, but I HATE the politics of it!! Total buzz-kill

      I like the Inauguration because I enjoy getting familiar with the First Family. It is always interesting to watch the family dynamics and to see what clothes they wear. It’s really just a big party, but really we should celebrate our country’s new President. How we would look as Americans to not welcome our new leader(regardless of party affiliation)? Anyway, I really like watching the girls. The younger one seems to have a lot of spunk. The older daughter is very poised and mature. I also enjoyed watching Jenna and Barbara- and Chelsea.

      I know this is way off topic, but I felt I should post it in case none of you have heard :-(

      Investigator: Heart-shaped sticker was put on duct tape covering Caylee Marie Anthony’s mouth
      Amy L. Edwards and Walter Pacheco | Sentinel Staff Writers
      1:22 PM EST, January 21, 2009

      A heart-shaped sticker was put on the duct tape that covered Caylee Marie Anthony’s mouth, an Orange County investigator wrote in search warrant affidavit.

      That detail is one of several included in hundreds of pages of legal documents released today by the State Attorney’s Office in its case against Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony.

      The reports detail more about what investigators found when Caylee’s remains were recovered Dec. 11:

      - The remains appeared to have originally been within a black plastic bag and within a cloth laundry hamper bag. – There was a piece of silver duct tape over the mouth area of Caylee’s skull. – Inside the bag, investigators found a small shirt, small pair of white shorts and small cloth-type letters that appear to be iron-ons, and a Winnie the Pooh blanket.

      While the duct tape was being processed at the FBI lab in Quantico, Va., investigators noticed residue in the “perfect shape of a heart.” The residue “appeared to be consistent with the adhesive side of a heart shaped sticker,” sheriff’s Detective Yuri Melich stated in one of the documents.

      He noted that investigators who scoured the wooded area where Caylee’s remains were found located a small heart-shaped sticker similar in size to the residue on the tape.

      “It appears that the sticker was put on the duct tape intentionally,” he stated.

      In another search warrant for Casey’s home on Hopespring Drive, where she lived with her parents and Caylee, investigators asked to collect: – Arts and crafts materials, stickers and scrap book material – Casey Anthony’s shoes – Small plastic toy horses similar to one found at the crime scene

      The investigator also asked for the authority to observe and note any prescriptions on the property.

      Dozens of pages of reports from crime-scene technicians were released, as well as transcripts from 911 calls made by the meter reader who found Caylee’s remains.

      There will be a romantic, kissy-faced honeymoon period…

      Then Obama will do something to reveal that he is only a human being.

      The fur WILL fly!

      But for now, everything is still “Bush’s fault”.

      When Obama can’t fix the economy with a snap of his fingers, pay everyone’s mortgage off with a gratuitous check from the government, cure cancer, and make time turn backward so that we all look 10 years younger –
      the bottom will fall out.

    10. Richard on January 21st, 2009 9:17 pm

      As far as I could see, the commentator is saying that the inauguration was a failure because he wasn’t at center stage. Sounds to me like a very self-centered jackass.

    11. Scared Monkeys on January 21st, 2009 10:20 pm

      For all you misguided liberals whining about this post … it was written by a liberal web site.

      They hated it!

      If you were at the event and had a special ticket, you were sorely disappointed.

      At least they have the ability to be honest and put the Kool-aide down once and a while.

      How much was the event ??? I heard 150,000,000.00 I wonder who pocketed the CHANGE ???

    13. NY'r on January 21st, 2009 11:28 pm

      150 Million dollar party. I am disappointed Obama did not insist cuts due to the economy issues. This the day before Obama freezes pay for the lower paid whitehouse Staff. REally nice!! Why not cut salaries in Congress, Nancy Palosi’s and even the VP and his own? We are next, watch and see

      Obama said in his speech he wanted to “harness the sun.” What? HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA LOL! What a douche! Seriously, harness the sun? And the wind to boot.

      Not a very good speech. Too many underhanded slaps at Bush, who was gracious enough to let this GOD (lol) have a smooth transition into the White House, something NEVER done before by an out-going President.

      Bush went out with class and dignity and F*** all of you who say otherwise.

      Many of the problems were not created by Bush but by Clinton. You always feel the effects of Presidential policies years after they leave office. Thank you Bill Clinton for screwing up the Housing market. Thank you Bill Clinton by not agressively pursuing Osama Bin Laden.

      There was also a headline under videos with CNN the day and it said Casy Anthony’s attorney discusses the case, but when you clicked it on it wasn’t there…

    16. JZB23 on January 22nd, 2009 9:13 am

      Obama is an excellent public speaker, however you can tell he is way out of his league, he should have waited a few years b4 running for prez. Im afraid our nation has made a serious mistake thats gonna cost us…big time..

    17. Rusty Bridges on January 22nd, 2009 9:15 am

      The biggest let down that I saw was at the parade. Obama kept turning away from the participants marching in his honer to talk to people that kept comming to meet with him.

      Poor planning mostly I though, but still he should have told them “I’m busy watching the parade, Y’all can wait, I’m the POTUS Dammit!”

      The saddest part was when that boyscout troop, obviously from an inner city was marching by. There was a group of young men in their uniforms marching proudly and saluting the president. just then he turns his back on them to talk to someone obviously more important than they were.

      You should have seen the look on their faces. I thought one was going to cry. A missed once in a lifetime experience burned into these poor young mens minds.

      For me it is a forshadowing of things to come as the people he promised to help will be treaded upon by the elite.

      Red…just for laugh’s can you post that picture you posted of “O’Bama wearing the Acorn Hat”…

      That was so funny….

      Hey do you know if the Acorn workers were line dancing at the Presidential ball?

    20. Sharon Chicago on January 22nd, 2009 3:12 pm

      #14 yeah Scott… and I can thank Clinton also for embarrasing me while on vacation in Italy having my hair done at a beauty shop in Tuscany and one Italian lady who did not speak English
      bent over and yelled to me “Clinton, Clinton….Monica..Monica…” I leaned forward and did a “thumbs down” (I had to restrain myself from doing one finger up if you know what I mean :o )

    21. Dolf on January 23rd, 2009 1:08 am

      lol@Sharon Chigago

      esp. with a guy like Berlusconi in charge
