Remember the size of those drooling crowds that went to see Sarah Palin Raven? They probably did the same thing. Sick leave, vacation or simply called off. Funny watching them yell at the Obama supporters to "get a job" while standing in line waiting to be fed some republican table scraps.

Most, if not all, people get paid for sick and vacation days. It's been like that for decades.

By the way, MLK Day is a paid holiday for GM workers, no sick or personal day needed.

Seeing a progressive-socialist being elected to a second term could lead to a one world government. I feel very sorry for Angela and the rest of our youth.

History was witnessed, for sure! An American President being sworn in for the second time who "claims" that he stands for "everyone getting a fair shake" & "everyone palyin' by the same rules", yet allows a single group of retirees to be DISCRIMINATED against by their own government. Obama the HYPOCRITE, nothing more!!!

Raven, It was a national holiday. Just because you don't a REAL JOB doesn't mean everybody else has a crap job too.

AnarchoCapitalist, you need to go check in on the third floor at Warren Valley Care.

The young children pictured will pay heavily for the wrath of Obama.

You American Obama followers, do yourself a favor and Google GLOBAL POVERTY ACT OF 2007 SPONSORED BY SEN, BARACK OBAMA. It's about over taxing all Americans to pay for World Wide poverty.

Listen boys and girls, there are billions of people that are poor, we have a hard time taking care of 15,000,000 illegals and 40,000,000 Americans that don't work. How are we supposed to take care of 3,000,000,000 billion additional people world wide?

The Schools will not tell you why Obama wants your money, if fact, most of the Teachers don't know it.

That is why organizations like the Cub Scouts, Camp fire Girls, Big Brothers & Sisters, the Young Republicans, Future Farmers of America, The Air Cadets, Jr. ROTC, and all of the other cover agencies of America are so damaging to our country, Right, anarchocapitalist and resistanceisfutile?

Angela,I am glad that you were able to share this moment of history with your daughter.These are the types of memories that will last a life time. If you are reading comments because you found your self on the front page,please take heart! These comments are not personal.The same group of people post everyday.They are not attacking your daughter.They simply hate the POTUS so much,that their vitriol comes pouring out.They completely forget that it is an article about a woman,and her daughter enjoying the day.Please take heart,the majority of Americans share your happiness,as shown in the last election.Again,congrads. on what must have been a great day for mother and daughter!

Angela - Teach your daughter that the President is supposed to stand up for ALL Americans, not just some.

Obama is a HYPOCRITE, nothing more! Teach your daughter to see beyond the lying media! Educate your daughter about the 20,000 Delphi reitrees that Obama SCREWED!

Most of the people on this thread and in the Mahoning Valley don't know why either, uh03937, why don't you be a good citizen and explain to everyone in the dark just why Obama wants the money.

I am an American.I was Freeborn here and most assuridly will die here. I have always known that my country is not perfect. Perfection is as impossible in a nation as it is in a person, but I Love Her Just The Same. I can think of no nation on earth where the citizens have more personal freedom to live their lives as they choose than the U.S.A. I will not condemn her, nor her leaders, nor her citizens. I will, as I have always done, work with my fellow American citizens to make this nation an even better and yes even more free place to live for the next generation. Her greatness lies in our ability to conduct a revolution, not with bullets or guns, but at the ballot box, in peace. I recognize that sometimes my candidates of choice will lose, my political beliefs in the minority, but I will always, always be a loyal American citizen and respect the decisions of my fellow countrymen. Angela thank you for taking the time to show your daughter the grandeur of a Presidential Inaguration.

The Anti American Obama haters need to get a grip on reality. Seriously! They are so far out there. Somewhere. If they want to ever have any hope of a Republican President they had better seek some help.
