A day after formally beginning his second term, President Barack Obama on Monday takes part in the full trappings of his inauguration by reciting the oath of office in front of a crowd expected to number between 800,00 and 900,000 people.
The nation's first African-American president also will become only the 17th U.S. leader to deliver a second inaugural address before leading the traditional parade up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.

Faces in the crowd: Are you there?
I loved Biden wish he was the president
*President Barack H. Obama. (the nana was typo)
@ crayon the 5 breaches of Government all get paid from Federal Government, without all 5 brenches are useless
Without the federal the 5 brenches are useless
No. Only part of gov is paid for by tax dollars. Exports sales of weaponry and borrowed funds...you can't simply count these two things out, Prophet. (and thx for the Vm)
If not for the export sale of weaponry, our goose would have been cooked long ago.
Something like 80% of weapons sold in the world are sold by US and Israel.
Subtract weapons profits from the accounting books of US and Israel from 1947-now...see?
CRAYON: Sad but true. And lets add that the U.S.A. has "backed & funded" MANY foreign "leaders" that have turned their backs on uu, and actually support todays terrorists!
For example, google "Theicher Affidavit" and see a list of weapons and exact dates sold. (of weapons sold to Saddam Hussein by US and Israel. Weapons paid for by the Iraqi people AND used on the Iraqi peoples) And check the dates...some of those sales were made AFTER Saddam had already used previously purchased weapons on his own citizenry. A VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW to provide weapons to any gov ui using them on their owm peoples!
*Teicher Affidavit. Sworn testimony by the highest ranking US government official to ever come-clean about US and Israel arming a madman after he had committed major atrocities against his own peoples, a violation of international law.
Okay, getting blocked again.
And people wonder at why CNN jumped the shark.
You aren't getting blocked. I'm walking over you. :)
Well, I'm going to my other home.
This is tedious, whatever the reason...
Or channel surfing while knitting a quilt.
So you think its a good idea to permit US Marines to take military action against US citizens? You think it'll stop with gangs? Remember how eager you were for this when a plssed off neighbor reports you as conducting "terrorist activties" in your home & you're woken up staring down the barrel of an assault rifle in your own bedroom. Take guns away from civilians & put armed soldiers in the streets... Great idea if you're on the socialist bandwagon
Thank you, Sokman, I have been saying pretty much the same thing all along.
This person advocates droning inner city gangs...can you imagine the collateral damage on that??
