1. And you have no idea how happy that makes me (or maybe you do).

I don't think I could have gotten out of bed this morning....

2. This is hard you people!

You could have had Mitt as your president, with all his experience running businesses!

3. Very good coverage on CSPAN--lots of crowd shots, minimal talking, good camera angles.

I had on that Morning Joe and it was like fingers on a blackboard. Click-click-click and CSPAN is mercifully better. The USMC band is playing, and no one is talking over them....the dignitaries are coming in, and no one is babbling--you just have to know who they are!

It's paradise!!!!

20. CSPAN is such a relief

less clutter, less chatter, fewer to no interruptions...

23. It's been great, and sometimes they give two camera angles side-by-side.

And no--as in zero/zip/nada/none--talking heads during the proceedings!!!

Romney-Ryan would have been bad news for everyone, especially women.

21. Hell, he's not even there! I was expecting to see him and ayn up there watching.

Instead, we get louie gohmert. Oh for Pete's Sake....

Bad enough that sometimes our view is blighted by a shot of boner or yertle or that pompous ass scalia with his clown hat. (Gee, attention-hog much?)

I was hoping the wrongneys would be there just for the sake of being able to savor the contrast, and to see them watch their "entitlement," and their "turn, now," be taken by the man whose turn it rightfully is.

Yeeeechhhhh.

We all worked awfully hard for this moment.

My husband and I got choked up when seeing James Taylor with his acoustic guitar, playing "America the Beautiful." Never thought we'd see THAT day (another way the two of us felt "represented" up there on that platform)! I texted that to our son, who's out on tour - about to play Denver tonight.



We all worked awfully hard for this moment. This is OUR day, too! I love you guys!

27. My 14 year old daughter is there today . . .

Last spring I signed my daughter up to go on a school trip to the inauguration and the whole time I was filling out the paperwork I kept thinking, "Please let it be Obama she will be seeing getting sworn in!" What a happy day!!!!

33. I've been so grateful for that all day--I can't get it out of my head

We shouldn't have come as close as we did to that scenario. I still have pages open on my phone's browser to stories about how surprised Mitt and Ann were on Election Night because they remind me 1) bwahahahahaha! and 2) how there were many people, terrible at polling but otherwise sane, who really thought that the Romneys would be up on that platform today.

I have been so happy all day to see our beautiful First Family and all the adoring crowds. I am so proud of them.
