To be included with everyone else...just very happy and proud.
Love our president
The teaser about the inauguration on my local news focused on immigration and gay rights. That's what they're apparently going to highlight, and the tone was positive. I like that gay rights is one of the key take aways from the day/speech.
Yes. I was very proud to be an American today.
I actually choked up and teared up. After all this time, to be included like that by someone in power like that... it's an amazing thing to this eldergay.
I was emotional for hours after, seriously.
Thank you, President Obama.
And fuck all you right-winger morons attacking him, hating on him, and just generally being horrible people.
The part where he kept throwing his arms up and saying he's 50...was just plain odd.
Love him, love the speech, love the day!
I you haven't seen it, you must sit down and watch it. Find the time. It's only 20 minutes of your life, but it's a great speech and one EVERY American should listen to. More than once.
Love all the Rethugs pundits complaining about "lack of unity."
They have GOT to be kidding.

Yeah, and they can keep on complaining. From the sidelines. A Democratic president cannot forge "unity" with an opposition party so thoroughly dominated by extremist throwbacks. Fuck 'em. Which is the crude version of what President Obama conveyed so well in his speech.
Many of us had hoped that we would see a more confidently progressive President Obama in his 2nd term. His words are a definite step in this direction. He clearly knows it's legacy time now.
I totally agree, Torta.
I missed it. Did he promise to close Guantanamo again?
Fuck off, R14. Seriously.
Bitter losers are so tiresome.
Obama can suck my dick any day. Really - I love him [italic]that much.[/italic]

I thought his mother died.
Go Fuck yourself, r15. I voted for him twice, but he damn well knows better.
R19? Seriously... fuck yourself.
No thanks, r20. I'm not going to fuck myself seriously, either.
I didn't like it when Bush trampled on the constitution and civil liberties, and I don't like it when Obama does it.
Nor should you.
I read through the speech somewhere online last night and it was pretty remarkable--that is the America I believe in.
Please troll at R21; stuff it.
R22, it was courageous and amazing. And this is what the majority of the people believe in.
Let it be.
