Free speech zone on inaugural parade

Obamas walk the parade route

By BYRON TAU |
1/21/13 3:57 PM EST

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama stepped out of their limousine in downtown D.C., following the longstanding tradition of the president strolling for a portion of his inaugural parade down the city's main boulevard.

The Obamas stepped out of their car near the intersection of 8th Street and Pennsylvania Ave NW, near the US National Archives and Records Administration building.

The first couple walked past the FBI building, before stepping back into the limousine before reaching Freedom Plaza.

Freedom Plaza is the site of one of the only authorized demonstration zones, where a strip of the plaza is designated a free speech zone.

The Obamas again stepped out of their limo near the Treasury Building to finish their trip from the Capitol to the White House.

17. He was attacking a longtime DUer.

Mr. Pitt has been active outside of DU, notably authoring some books highlighting the falsehoods that allowed the Iraq war.

33. What's so funny is the portions they walked were in the front of federal buildings.

The sec. service had much more control over those buildings in terms of safety. I wondered today why they selected those portions to walk. I knew it was a safety issue. I've seen the secret service operate in this type of situation up close and it was pretty impressive. So Dude is just like every other extremist. He is full of hate, lower intellect, and dead WRONG!
