How can there be an "unprecedented" amount of security threats for Trump's Inauguration if the "same thing" happened to Obama?


Would you be quoting the same main stream media that the right is crying out about being "fake news"?

Or are you getting your info from unverified sources?

Republicans to skip Obama inaugural, head out of town


January 19, 2013 | by KEN THOMAS

For many Republicans, this is a good weekend to get away from it all.

With hundreds of thousands of Democrats traveling to nation’s capital for President Barack Obama’s swearing-in ceremonies, Republicans and supporters of last fall’s GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, are leaving town for sunny vacation destinations and company conferences or staying indoors and avoiding the crowds.

After failing to recapture the White House for a second straight presidential election, many are not exactly in a partying mood.

“It’s a good time to lay low,” said John Feehery, the president of Quinn Gillespie Communications and a former top congressional aide.

As Democrats prepare to mark Obama’s second inauguration on Monday by bundling up along the parade route or donning party gowns or tuxedos, Republicans are spending the long Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend with quick vacation getaways, quiet time at home or trips to the movie theater.

Few plan any “mourning parties” or “bawls” that have been the staples of past inaugural festivities for the party out of power. But invites to pricey balls and swanky soirees tend to be scarce if your candidate lost and watching television provides a constant reminder of November’s elections.

“Invitations must have gotten lost in the mail!” former Romney adviser Ed Gillespie wrote in an email saying he had no major plans for the weekend.

Charlie Spies, an attorney and co-founder of the pro-Romney super PAC called Restore Our Future, was in Las Vegas for the weekend, hosting about 100 Republicans, including some former Romney campaign aides, at events in the Wynn Las Vegas and Venetian Resort Hotel Casino.

Spies held a similar gathering for about 20 friends and associates four years ago but said he was surprised by the amount of interest this time.

“I was expecting more than 20 but no place near this response,” he said. “But I think people were excited to have an opportunity to be someplace other than D.C. and let President Obama and his supporters have their day in the sun.”

Ron Bonjean, a former Bush administration and congressional aide who runs a public affairs firm, convened a small work retreat at a resort in Mexico and said he planned to use the time to prepare for new challenges in 2013.

“It’s the perfect time for us to be productive and focused on the year ahead while Washington is consumed with swearing in the president,” he said.

Republicans will be part of the inauguration ceremony, with members of Congress gathered on the west front steps of the Capitol for Obama’s swearing-in. Many Republican lawmakers are attending state balls during the weekend to welcome their constituents.

Some Republican leaders — including House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and House Armed Services Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif. — planned to attend an inauguration-related ball on Sunday night honoring members of the military.

The bipartisan event includes a performance by Lynyrd Skynyrd, the rock band that canceled its show at last summer’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., because of Tropical Storm Isaac.

After the parties end, the work to win back the White House begins. The Republican National Committee is holding its winter meeting in Charlotte, N.C., next week. A major topic of discussion will be finding ways to reach out to minority voters and win elections.

Next weekend, a robust lineup of Republican luminaries, including Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Romney’s running mate, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, will address conservatives at a conference organized by the National Review Institute.

For Republicans, this is a season of introspection and planning for the future.

“When you’re winning, you’re thinking about the possibilities. When you lose, you’re thinking about what went wrong,” Feehery said. “When you’re winning, you’re thinking about your next job. When you lose, you’re thinking about keeping your job.”

And don't forget, Obama, the Clintons, Soros and his pawns have made no secret that they are planning on opposing Trump at every turn. They have stated this and aren't hiding it. So for those who haven't noticed, the OP's list is probably an abbreviated one.



Oh, you mean EXACTLY like what the Republicans did to Obama when he was elected, and continued to do throughout his terms?

The Republicans didn't make a secret about doing it either. What short memories you have.



Do you actually believe any of that?

Like he said short memories.

OP. Trump set up the leaker of that recently. HE held another meeting with only a few people he knew. And didnt tell anyone else about it except those few. In short the mole was outed. Although you wont see this on the main stream news.

Moles are easy to catch if you know how to lure them.

Not making excuses for anyone. I'm proud to be registered independent and think for myself thank you. Just saying that this is a very public effort to disrupt. Also, with at least two big meetings for planning that were publicly announced, you know theres more in the works to "gum up" the Trump presidential term than what is included in that list the OP made. Theres somebody throwing money at all these efforts. I wonders where its all coming from...

We know we didn't win.
But we stopped the killery plan.
Trump was just a grenade under the white house door.
Before we let the libtards and sjw have it we would rather see the
whole thing burnt down to the ground.Just as we would rather
see the USA a nuclear waste land rather than let the muslims or any other
group or nation have her.
