I've been a harsh critic of Obama. But this morning, after listening to pre-inauguration interviews with some conservative voices that I respect, I decided to change my mind and give Obama a chance to prove himself. The people I refer to were full of hope and praise for the man and the day, and I carried that feeling for the rest of the morning.

Then the ceremonies began.

Incredibly, Bush and Cheney, and their wives, were loudly booed when they were introduced to the crowd.

I was ashamed to be an American.

What a total lack of class. With the world watching, Americans had to act like a bunch of immature adolescents.

An historic day, ruined by idiots.

No,

Those men don't deserve applause or any kind of respect, they ruined your once great nation in 8 years....8 years!

They should have been pelted with rocks and then lynched!

Actually i think it was quite the opposite, Bush has MANY deaths on his hands, Cheyney is an even worse piece of evil scum.

Good for the Americans.

Do not be ashamed of people showing their emotions, it's a good thing.

Pity they didn't hang the buggers.

Also I notice your avatar talks about freedom, are people not allowed to show their disgust at these war criminals???

jso, just be patient. Those who booed today will taste their own bitterness soon enough.

This nation bought a pig in a poke. We still don't know what we are in for from this completely unknown.

He may be good, and he just may make George Bush look really good by comparison.

I was always taught that the measure of a man is a summation of his actions. Words, style, and promises mean diddly squat. Obama hasn't done one damned thing. Ever. Nothing. Ever. He got elected to the Senate? With Chicago-style politics?

Does that not trouble anyone that other than election, he has never even had a real job?

Today, that was one of the more shameful moments for Americans. But the bulk of Americans today are an embarrassment. Many uneducated in spite of education, many are rude because they lack any polish, and as a group think everything should be done for them.

I think Michael C. Riggs said it best, "A turd, encased in a fine silk sock, at the end of the day, is still a turd."

We shall see.

I have to agree with you, I am ashamed of my nation for the first time unlike Michelle Obama.

That shows you how mature Obama supporters are I suppose.

Yup as an American I totally agree it was a shameful moment.
I think people need to grow up.
I didn’t vote for them but I respect the office.
I'm just glad it's over and we can get back to the falling stock market and job losses.

Oh Pleeeeease.

The whole world was booing him. Not just the Americans.

The guy deserves jail time. I ask you, if Hitler was on the same stage, would you be saying 'Oh but it was such a travesty, Hitler got booed'.

No, of course not.... But a lot of you people think that being American makes you innocent of such evil.

i severly disagree miss...
not only do you seem to have what I've noticed some americans have pity for George Bush--- you fail to realize he is the reason our economy is drowning...the reason why so many of our soldiers have died since 2003....

how dare you not boo...


You clearly love the government...no matter how much they destroy and ruin...


i hope obama stops his partying and gets to work...

you need to take a closer look at your precious bush...he deserves more than a boo lady, he deserves to be hung. Thats coming from an American.

Agreed.


Even though I dont like Bush or Cheney or support what they have done it definitely showed a lack of class on the part of the libs in the crowd. It was also very disrespectful toward the office and what was taking place at the time.

Not to mention shameful and embarrasing for the rest of the world to see.


There is a time and a place for everything, and this wasnt it.

If booing is all the man ever gets, he should consider himself lucky. He did the people no favors while in office. He deserves no better.

Dead silence would have been a better form of protest. Politicians expect booing, the really hate being ignored.

Bush sucked. He did. No question about it. The decisions he has made over his presidency will be decided by history. He was unpopular..very unpopular...so it's not surprising. Not everything he did was terrible..but the bad far overshadows the good.

Will they be doing the same to Obama in 4 or 8 years? We'll see.

I will say that I am proud that we elected an African American. One of the very FEW things i can be proud of right now. Other than that, I hate almost all of his policies and big spending agendas.

Whoa whoa whoa!

I may not have been a member long on this site, but haven't people usually gone to say that Bush was nothing more than a pawn for the bigger "fish" sotaspeak? Why waste energy on bush if he indeed was just a pawn? Of course I'd boo bush to, but he was president so I'd at least give him a clap; and well if he was truly indeed a pawn in this game of life-chess then really why boo HIM?

Well, you too are an American, so if Americans have no class neither do you or Bush or Cheney, since we are all classless Americans according to you.

I LOVED it when the crowd spontaneously burst into,
NA NA NA NA

GOOD BYE!

I did a jig in my living room as President Obama escorted Bush out.

And talk about NO CLASS, did you see the way Dubya ditched his poor long suffering wife, just walked off and left her hanging? Classy. Unlike Obama, who lovingly held his wifes hand.

Bush is a criminal, and a scoundrel, just like Cheney. Their karma is worn on their faces and bodies.

You mean secret like Obama's birth certificate?

Sorry - couldn't resist. But the booing of a former President was in bad taste. Period. They didn't even do that to Nixon or Clinton.

It will be interesting to see what Obama looks like in 4 years.

Well I felt embarrassed for Bush and co... However I don't think you can comprehend the level of anger and frustration that many of us have felt.

This was an act of free speech and expression... Lawful... Free of violence - only a minute of recourse that was as mild a form of repudiation possible. In a past time the man would have suffered FAR worse, this should restore your pride in AMERICA.
