(AP)   President Barack Obama appeared to stumble over the word "states" during his ceremonial swearing in thereby proving he is a Communist Muslim usurper. This means Romney immediately becomes president   (hosted.ap.org) divider line 45

Well... to threadjack this a bit... Romney is the most butthurt losing candidate in decades.

Didn't go to the inauguration... didn't watch it on TV. A broken man. He would of been SUCH a great president.

A lot of money wasted on the Inauguration. Should have done it Calvin Coolidge style, and put the money back in Social Security fund where it was robbed from in the first place.

It was clearly his subconcious revealing his hatred for America. Kind of like how the Fonze can't say he is "sorry".

It was only funny when Obama was forced to perform some outlandish yet hilarious punishment and Palin/Romney/Gingrich was given a ridiculous title, and even that became overdone during the election.

At least the meme has moved beyond Palin. It still sucks though.

I didn't even think of that, so I looked it up...

Romney's absence makes him the first losing candidate not to attend since 1989, when Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis didn't attend George H.W. Bush's swearing in. Instead, he stayed in his home state, watched on TV, and ate a tuna sandwich.

Maybe it's just a "Massachusetts governor who got his ass kicked in a national race" thing.

The headline meme was funny the first few times, but really enough already.

I've said this before, but I want to chip in my agreement. I had this fantasy that R$ would brush himself off after the election and say, "I fought the good fight and lost. But since I love my country so much, I would like to offer my services to this administration to do something to better the US."

This would be an awesome win for him, people would talk about the offer for decades. If Obama took him up on it and put him into some kind of serious advisory position, there would be the sounds of the GOP leadership's heads exploding along with the right wing drum beaters.

It would make the GOP leadership look like the cartoon villains most of them they've become, and set a model for interparty cooperation that might break down the partisan wall.

Yeah, there's a fantasy to take seriously. Not.

i love how you wingnuts bring up the gas thing. it only serves as a reminder that the ECONOMY COLLAPSED under george w. bush.

remember, gas was $4/gal in the summer of '08. then the economy tanked and gas demand tanked along with it. so, yes, gas was cheap in january of '09.

are you sure you want to keep reminding people of what an utter failure your boy bush was?

incidentally, almost all of your other "facts" can be explained by the fact that the ECONOMY COLLAPSED in 2008. you know, prior to obama taking office.

That and it reminds those of us without selective memory how it was almost too expensive to go to work in the summer of 2008. Quite frankly I thought $3.26 was pretty low and reasonable for these days after that experience.

we had a really bad storm that june that took out a tree in our yard and left us without power for five days. i was running a generator the whole time, which was costing me something like $100/day in gas!

and as for $3.26, that's CHEAP. my brother in england pays something like $9/gal.

The day is full of tradition. The swearing in, the speech, the walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, the parade, the multitude of galas, the people complaining about all the money being wasted. Great American traditions, all of them.

Gas was at a very temporary low in January of 2008. You're either ignorant or willfully obtuse of this fact.

Unemployment was on its way up in 2008. Now it's on the way down.

Social Security began in 1935.
