Yes, Tally, LL, GGail. We are the West Coast checking in. Yes, how about that.HZ
YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!
How ’bout that HZ!!!!!!

Beautiful gorgeous day in LA – wonderful day for our USA!
I’m tryin’. Top 10 anyway.
Yardarm, it is an honor to be in your company. Thank you for all of your music genius.HZ
You’re welcome. Maybe some music after the parade, eh?
That would be nice, yardarm.HZ
Sparks still here manning the communications shack and ready to stand watch.
Call me when the transmitter craps out and I’ll grab my test equipment and fix it…….How’s your speed key?
Hey guys, I just had to go check wikipedia about the crowds for both GWBs inaugurations. They were both under 400,000. What a difference
Does that make me a bad person? ;)
Nope, that makes us human! ;) I’ve gotta laugh when I see and hear these guys talking about Beyonce. They get so tongue-tied, cracks me up.
NOOOOOO, Chris is talking about Hillary/Joe running again. STOP, Tweety!
I intend to gloat until the end of time!!!!
How excited they all must be to be in the Parade and can catch a glimpse of POTUS & FLOTUS looking at them go by!
A) Twitter is sucking right now.
B) VA GOP Senators passed a redistricting of Senate seats while Dem state senators were in DC for the inauguration. It’s beginning.
There needs to be class-action lawsuits for these thieves and cheaters.
Seriously? That’s criminal
GOP/criminals same difference
Can’t win on message so they cheat. Slimeballs!
I smell a law suit at least.
Where is bobfr? The insurgency part 2.
Nice intro for navy reserves.
Love them. Awwwww
I’m re-posting this pic of Sasha and Malia. Too cute for words
hahaha no kidding. wayyyy cute. Sisters!
Absolutely gorgeous Lisa, added it to the post – THANK YOU!!
Yay!! No prob, Chips. I absolutely love this pic! They are so cute and well adjusted! :)
As their mom would say…delicious!!
I’m secretly having a little fun because I never grab the remote but my husband was thinking of changing the channel and I hid it from him. No you don’t mister. I’m watching this
Martin Luther King float!
You go, girl!
I thought I heard a whack
This is fuuunnnnnn!
Wow it’s now dark on the parade route except for the viewing area it seems (well, sans street lights)
This is the list of floats so everyone can follow along…and take bathroom breaks. Still a loooong way to go:))
oh thx Melanie
Awww the Maine Gym Dandies ****proud****
Has anyone posted the Gawker link and the look on Michele’s face while boner was talking? Here it is. Enjoy. http://gawker.com/5977763?utm_campaign=socialflow_gawker_twitter&utm_source=gawker_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow
She has the same expression I got when my husband and his old buddies would exchange jokes…….I had heard them all, they weren’t funny, and please stop it. Any wife knows that expression.
Alright the civil rights float featuring LBGT band. Not something you have ever seen in a US presidential inauguration parade before now FOR SURE!
An inaugural official told reporters that “at least” 1 million people were on the National Mall for President Obama’s swearing in ceremony.
Man, I was just typing away on the previous thread. Totally cluless that everyone had moved on. LOL! :-D
Welcome back :wink:
Thanks LS! Thought I felt a chill in the air a few minutes ago. Now I know why. :-D
here we are
Gay & Lesbian Band. Thank you President Obama for your inclusion of all of AMERICA
So cool! They’re playing Lady Gaga! :-)
Native WOMEN warriors. This parade is like none other! Glad I’m alive to witness it. Could you imagine a future GOP pres. Would they go back to ‘the good ole days’ for their inauguration?
This parade is AMERICA!
Deal with it GOPers stuck in the 18th century!! We’re moving #FORWARD!!
I didn’t know they get down like that in Iowa. They was getting down like they owned the place.
I love all these beautiful ethnic outfits. they are so colorful and special.
Hispanic dancers from Utah. I wonder who did the choosing for this parade. Remember they received thousands of application and could only pick so many. I like their choices.
Twitter sends out this accounting of tweets during President Obama’s inaugural ceremony at the Capitol on Monday. They topped out at 27,795 per minute when Obama said “We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”
I jumped out of my chair when he said that!
That was one of my favorite lines too.
This ENTIRE day has been an amazing treat that exceeded my wildest expectations, which were quite high to begin with! And we still have the Inauguration balls to watch!
OMG you’re right. I forgot there are still balls to come….
I have been on cloud 9 all day!! Even my children are watching all of the events along with me. I was mad earlier though when I found out that my sister is in Washington and didn’t even tell me she was going :(
Damn but this pres even has swagger in his salute. (I’m so shallow)
‘I’m so shallow.’ No more than the rest of us, Lunar. This is the happy moment so many have worked so hard for. ENJOY!!!!!!
President Obama went all in in his address. All the emoprogs will be just as fubared as the oldcranky party…..and neither has a leg to stand on. Bring it to the people, Mr President! We stand with you! You tried to change it from the inside. You reached out and time and time again ….Disrespect, but there are more of us than there is of them!
Where did Michelle and the girls go? Did they leave to get ready for the Ball?
Grambling in da House!
Grambling State is kicking ass! Turn around Mr. President!!
Tuskeegee Airmen Float. One of the Airmen is in the box with President getting applauded! :-D
So cool to see the Tuskegee Airmen representated!!
Love how they all turned to pay tribute to the Tuskegee airman that was in the booth.
Getting ready for your cuteness fix!
Canine Companions for Independence is coming up soon!!!
That was just TOO adorable! Bo should have been there to witness this float :)
For those who missed this on the NBC networks – HILARITY with Joe!
ok that was funny :-)
LOL Like a kid in a candyshop, Al. Made his day.
ugh. weird to see how self-absorbed these goons are, but i guess explains a lot about our “news” people. major history making event and they turn it into something about themselves. great.
Came back to see this! ROFL!!! First he was cute as a button just getting a response from the President. Then the VP came over to shake his hand. Love how he threw down the microphone after that — “YES! I’m Done!” :-) :-) :-)
Dudette, if you’re still around…thanks so much for the PBS link in the last thread!
Hey, you’re welcome! :-)
On a Day That’s Anything But Normal, Obama Girls Appear Just That nyti.ms/XtY2Ug— The New York Times (@nytimes) January 21, 2013
Oh those Wind River dancers are wonderful. This has been the best parade. This is America!!!!
And of course we cannot forget his adoptive native family. Egads but this whole thing is spectacular.
Just another one of those things that he does with no brag, no fanfare, Lunar.
You are so right.
Remember during the 08 campaign when McCain was bragging about his bracelet from a military mom like that made him the cat’s meow and during a debate a very quietly PBO (then sen) lifts up his arm and says I have one too and just went on with the conversation. Almost like ‘proceed gov’. McCain was speechless because he had been bragging about how he was the choice of military everywhere. Obama was just so quiet about it, if McCain hadn’t been so obnoxious I don’t think we would never have known.
Loving that some many First Nations groups are participating!! Gorgeous outfits!!
The first to invite the First Nations to the Inaugural parade was Teddy Roosevelt!
Awwwww, Canine Companions
The King family asked the President and Chief Justice Roberts to sign the King bible and they did. What a treasure!!
I heard the canine campanions where among the chosen. They were so proud. They do amazing work with their dogs. I’m sure they are there to some way represent the disabled part of our society. Everyone is accounted for it seems.
That was great! And the Navajo Nation from AZ :)
Take that dog-hatin’ Mitt Romney!!! :-)
They ain’t too good with horses either, Dudette.
I know, right?
Late to the party – but what a party! Thank you Chips for ensuring I will spend the next 6 hours “catching up”
Just wonderful to see so many celebrating President Barack Obama
Our President has brought us together. We will only get stronger.

There ya go, Ms. Chips. Lot’s of crazy, cold smart folks in the snow burrrrrrrrrrrrrrr belt of western, central NY. Ok, ok, I jumped the shark a bit, but Erie, Pa ain’t far from…..
Yay Coast Guard!
I havent look at the schedule, is there a representative from all 50 states. It seems like it. I love the variety. Whoever was in charge has done a fantastic job.
Great job as usual Chips! I am watching the parade on CSPAN. All parade NO TALKING., It is great!!!
Here’s Portsmouth HS Band! My late son was a member of this band in the ’90’s
Is Rafalca there?
LOL! Miss Ann told him no – although he badly wanted to attend!
Oh dear – that was my thought Dudette
Poor Rafalca didn’t know she was a tax write off.
Whenever I see these girls, I just think damn, they could be my cosin! I’ve never met ‘em, but when people say stuff about ‘em, it feels like they are talking about my family…lol
Best friend just came from spending last several hours at car dealer getting a repair done. Had me cracking up over the fact that she was the only black person in the lounge for most of the afternoon, and the tv was on a marathon of “Lizard Lick Towing”. [I'd never heard of that show -- apparently it's popular in certain circles] Anyway, she said you could just tell the crowd in there would not be anxious to see the Inauguration festivities today, so she didn’t bother asking anyone to change the channel. She was glad she brought her iPad with her to do some work and follow the news while she was there.
She got a kick out of watching this one other black lady patron come in. BF said “I knew she was gonna make a beeline for the TV”. She came marching down the hall like she couldn’t wait to get to it. She came around the corner and stopped dead in her tracks — shocked to see the goofy reality show instead of the news. Put her hand on her hip, looked around the room.”
BFF said “I lowered my head and went back to focusing on my iPad (as if to say “don’t look at me”). Poor lady just walked off in a huff.
What can I say? We’re in Georgia.
Only a few groups left
We aren't that far from this. Never forget it. The hands are free now but what about your mind? http://t.co/BSXAYtGg— Nelson (@Yardarm756) January 21, 2013
In chains…but take note of the clenched fists,,,
in chains but resistent,,,,in chains but not defeated!!!!
Yes We Can!
If only those hands had a gun, eh?
Powerful image. Great tweet!
Truth often is 9t9.
Just seeing this now, Yardarm. What a powerful message … and reminder.
And it probably went right over some heads too.
Some; not all!
Obviously my Dear, obviously.
Great day overall, eh, Sailor? I need to catch up, big time!
Go for it. You got a lot to do.
I’m finally hearing “Obama’s On Fire!” Love it.
It’s awrite but that red dress is smokin’!
Something for everybody! :)
yay it’s the firefighters listen to those bagpipes!
Idaho Firefighters — looking good!
utooh..i think i may have broken twitter. :( Its moving very slow.
Wow this went much quicker than I thought. On to the balls.
Time flies when you’re having fun!
VMI bringing it home!
Just for you HZ
PBO is leaving to put is dancing clothes on:)
That’s all folks!
So where will I be able to find the Dancing? CNN, C SPAN??? Chipsticks will you provide links please?
Heard that the announcer for the parade has done it every parade since Truman. He is in his 80’s He must have some stories.
I saw him on cspan before the parade – he was an absolute delight
Wishing all a very Happy Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and President Barack Obama 2nd Inauguration Day! And thank you for a great site!
Here is the adorable kissing moment in better quality.
Sasha taking a picture of Mom and Dad kissing, how cute is that. Then FLOTUS wiping her lipstick off of POTUS lips.
Wow that was spectacular. I had to go back and watch the walks again. Can’t get enough of the crowds screaming and waving….
Robme? Never woulda happened
This is why CSPAN rocks. Parade is over, but we still get to see and hear chatter and greetings in the viewing box. First Family is leaving now. PBO has a cup of something in his hands as he and VPOTUS walk out chatting.
They are starting coverage over again from them going to church this morning. Anyone miss anything check out cspan
VP went one direction (presumably to limo to get ready for the ball), PBO went into the White House.
Okay, now I have GOT to get some food in me. :-)
That was just spectacular coverage! Enjoyed it all on CSPAN with TOD running simultaneously on my laptop. Couldn’t have watched it with a better group of folks. A kajillion thanks and big hugs to you Miz Chips. You are blog warrior goddess! Gotta getta something to eat and then change into my inaugural ball watching on TV outfit! :smile: BBL TOD Peeps! :smile:
I to enjoyed csdan and TOD. Our Mz Chips is the best. Now off to fix dinner so I can sit and watch all the balls.
That’s exactly what I’ve done all day….TOD and CSPAN. Bravo combination. In fact, I had some trouble keeping up with Chips…..suddenly…BAM, a new post! Great day. Thanks to Chips and everyone on TOD.
Me three and time to eat and put a load of laundry in….lol
Wow, C-SPAN (on TV) is starting their coverage over. First Family getting out of the car for this morning’s church service. You can re-live the whole day all over again!! :-)
Ain’t it too kewl
I “LOVE” that picture of Sasha and Malia, it is priceless.
Well, that was a sweet parade. CNN livestream now has a “Commander in Chief’s Inaugural Ball” stream open….
meta, do you have a link?
I don’t know about all of you…but I can’t WAIT to see the gown she wears tonight:) I hope there will be a link to the balls…… :)
I anticipate C-Span if nothing else. The people gotta see what she gonna wear. I mean look at the fervor over her hair. Sheesh!
Yep, there’ll probably be some fainting going on. I hope they have medics on standby in the ballroom.
Or some green cats!
i was just thinking that DF…i can’t wait to see it
Does anyone know what the first couple is dancing to
allright I gotta go back and see the luncheon that’s what i missed – back later!
There are still 2 more events tomorrow as well! The National Prayer Service and the Staff Inaugural Ball.

OMG!!! the best big/lil sis picture EVAR!! That should be posted everywhere because that what sister love means – being there when the littler one is just plain wore out.
And FLOTUS is so adorable. She was excited to see pic of her kiss with PBO. I love her so much.
