Hey there, I missed that part but I saw most of the inaguration.
To be honest, I think the Bush admin is one of the wors, if not the worst presidential administrations in US history.
But I was raised to never boo as it is rude and just not appropriate ever.
I remember when I was little going to a few sporting events. If I booed my mom would always yell at me for booing. She would say dont do that! its
rude and it only makes you look bad because its a sign you have bad manners etc....
I must say that if I had been there I would not have booed anyone. I probably would not have applauded but I certainly would not boo.
Booing like that only makes on look incosiderate and rude. Taunting them saing "we won, ha ha" Makes one look childish and and arrogant.
There is an old saying " If you can't say anything nice, dont say anything at all"
That is what should have been done. Its alot more respectful to just sit there and do nothing than to boo.
Im willing to bet that they already know how the majority of the world feels about them and I see no reason to rub it in.
Whoever boo'd failed to realize that the whole world was watching and in a way they were representing america. We are hated enough as it is. I dont
want them thinking even worse of us. They only succeeded in making Obama and the rest of his supporters (including me) look badly
I would not go as far as to say I am ashamed of america as a whole, but I am ashamed of everyone that booed.
I do like Obama as president, at least at the moment. I am reserving any real judgement(good bad or otherise) untill he has been in office for a
while and has actually had a chance to do something.
I must say, I am ashamed of everyone who boo'd. If you cant say anything nice, dont say anything at all...
