you must've missed the fact that mcconnell, boehner, and cantor were there
paul ryan was booed by the classy crowd.?
Yes these leaders were there because they have constitutional duty to be there.
Having Romney there would have meant more
You seem to think these politicians ego is so easy to bruise it needs protecting.
not tennisforum, obviously, but the media in general. if the romneys had attended, we'd have thousands of lefty websites and blogs continuing to mock them
You have been here long enough to know righty and lefty websites do this all the times.
Some righty website still believe Obama is illegitimate president, he was not borne here, he won because he suppresed the vote.
These websites are now part of American political landscape, and you cannot credibly make the case that this the monopoly of the left.
The earlier you get used to them ( and not be sensitive), the better off you'll.
Imagine if you were a liberal and saw the images purpoted to be Obama that were in Tea Party demonstrations. Gorilla, African witch doctor, Mao, Stalling Mussolini, Hitler. You would have lost interest in politicis by now.
I am sure you have heard of The Drugde Reports, The Blaze, NewsMax, RedState, Breitbart, Dikck Morris, Michelle Malkin, .. and of course FOXNews.
As the inauguration was in progress, FOXNews was already criticizing Obama, they even fail to show some of the very importnat optics of the inauguration, namely the parade where diversity abound with flotial including, chinese american community group, Gay Americans, Hispanic Americans, Hawaians.
This all ties in the theme of equal, civil rights Obama talked about in his speech.
Prior to the parade, the president has mentioned Stonewall in an inaugural speech, the first time it was ever done in an inagural.
Plantman should be grateful to the president for this.
