Lovely to be here, wtg, Lisa!
And they said we wouldn’t show up today. Ha! Again we proved them FOOLS!!
I keep hearing ‘only 1/3 the turnout’. But from my front row seat, it looks like far more. Opinions?
Ya just have to look at ‘em, to know they’re fools!

Hellooooooo Aandogriff, so much happening!!!
You are brilliant, thank you thank you thank you SO very much!
GM my friends….Im loving the coverage :-)
And if I may say so, VP Biden has some seriously handsome boys….
BREAKING NEWS: Repubs have “decided” to “allow” a vote on the debt ceiling.
Beau is trying to find a place to put the Bible. I think he should just hold it.
Hillary Clinton is all smiles today – great to see her in such good spirits!
Sasha and Malia!!!

AJ reporter – President is not willing to take the republican nonsense anymore.
Jay-Z and Beyonce http://t.co/zm7lweQi— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 21, 2013
They look great!
and the crowd goes wild for them ~ I am so enjoying this.
First Daughters and First Granny just came onto the platform. :-D
Oohhhhhh Axe is there and FLOTUS’ BG (tall bald one).
My heart is bursting with pride and joy at our gorgeous girls!!!! Wow, they are stunning!!
They are so lovely, and Mrs. R. looks great too!
Just seeing them brings the tears.
President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn http://t.co/RyI5AuUH— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 21, 2013
Chipsticks – you’re doing a marvelous job!!!!
isn’t Jill so beautiful. Is that a white dress she has on under her coat?
Dunno. Can’t get past her beautiful smile!
More clomping down the stairs as Jill and gang arrive. Lots of stairs, not sound proof.
It was Mrs Bonner – I see they have ‘his n hers’ sunbeds.
Why does Jill have to enter with “Mrs. Cantor”? That’s mean.
Only at a Barack Obama inauguration do you see Jay Z, Katy Perry, Eva Longoria, Beyoncé, James Taylor right next to VP Biden’s family.
One of the wayan brothers.
Eva Longoria http://t.co/ObWdzlYv— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 21, 2013
Why’d they stick Jill with the repuke wives?
FLOTUS she looks divine!!
Mrs. O. The woman behind the man!
Most Fabulous First Lady!!
I love her to my core!
Did I just catch a glimpse of Marlon Wayans?
Dayam…the first family is fly.
Why does she have to walk in with those ladies. Mrs Cantor
Protocol. Then she drops ‘em at the top step!
This is just marvelous! The Obama women look gorgeous.
Even though i posted earlier that I was glad the Bushes wouldn’t be there, as I sit and watch the former Presidents arriving, it seems to me that W. not showing up is a clear sign of partisanship and everyone should be talking about the republicans are signaling that they don’t want to cooperate with our President, not the other way around!
Overheard in the crowd as the first daughters take the stage: "Sasha and Malia! We love you, girls!" #inaug2013— Obama Inauguration (@obamainaugural) January 21, 2013
OMG!!! Beautiful Michelle!!
First Lady arriving.
Michelle is so serene.
She is phenomenal.
Agree, Agree Agree.
Someone is missing ChipsChica’s pictures from the last inauguration:
Forget climate change and gun control. Obama needs to do something about these porta-potties. #publichealthemergency #securitythreat— Alec MacGillis (@AlecMacGillis) January 21, 2013

Aw, there’s our sweetheart. Love you madly Mr. President.
With that million dollar smile!
We collectively love you, Mr. President. Feel it, sir?
Shouts of O Bama, O Bama.
No way shrub would have been called in such a manner.
POTUS just winked at me!!!!
You only got a wink. I got a huge smile and a “Hey!” :-D
I cannot stand the Republicans in the stands there—-they all look so crabby. Barack H. Obama looks confident and happy.
Those R”s better take note of that crowd and know there are millions more of us
MY, sorry OUR President!
Yours, mine, and ours!
Oh what a day!!!!! Obama, Obama, Obama. The crowd goes wild.
Headr chants of “OBAMA, OBAMA!!!!”
I see Eric Holder and his wife…

Chairman Chuck Schumer is nervous as a cat. Who wouldn’t be!
Look at that million dollar smile!
The First and Second Family and their families look so relaxed. I love it.
Good Golly Miss Molly! My President is SUPER FINE!! :-D
Look at that smile. He is so relaxed. This is going to be a great speech, I just know it.

What I wouldn’t give to be Justice Sotomayor’s right cheek today! :-D
POTUS talking with the Supreme Court
I think I see out TOD folks waving out there. I know I do.
No topcoat for POTUS…must be nice out:)
I bet he is wearing a bullet proof suit as he did last time.
While he was waiting, the Executive Branch shook hands with the Judicial Branch.
Today I cry with joy for the re-inauguration of President Barack Obama and the resurrection of a dream and hope that has been lost since ’68. That I lived long enough to see this day!!!!
And that I lived long enough with you!
I can barely see through the tears to respond, jacqueline. Hugs!!!!!!!! Been lurkin’, but couldn’t hold it any longer!!!
Lurk out loud today, tears and all!

It's just not the same without Aretha's hat. #inauguration #inaug2013— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) January 21, 2013
Oh look at this. I so agree with Schumer’s words. Hope you all have kleenix close.
Sen Schumer is doing a great job!
yes. I was just about to say the same thing!
He sure is!
Good speech Chuck
Senator Schumer giving a little inaugural speech of his own… Beautiful words.
So much of this I didn’t know. So much irony. Thank you too all who help build this capitol even though they weren’t free.
Schummer is doing a good job!
Chips…I am lagging behind, but WILL CATCH UP!!
Thanks for whipping us along!
Someone on CNN is crying or their nose is running. I keep hearing sniffles.
Best remarks Chuck Schumer will ever give, that’s for sure! Here comes the Invocation!
So happy for Mrs. Evers! Beautiful!
“America. We are here … “
Here comes my tears of joy -
I can’t believe Mrs. Evers-Williams is closing in on 80….damn, Black don’t crack.
Scalia’s mouth is wide open like he’s about to catch a fly.
I’m so excited! I’ll be able to see the swearing in, then I’m off to our MLK event here. I’ve got everything TiVo’ed, but I’ll be back here later for the blow by blow from my TOD family!
My Goodness! Is the FLOTUS beyond gorgeous or what! The Obama Family, the Biden Family…all of them just stunning!
