Truly thankful this day went by without incident.

I won't lie to you. I was frightened. But now am glad things went as they did. A wonderful speech.

3. I was worried when he got out of the car

 

Even though I know security was very high, you can't have your eyes trained to every single place all the time. Its something I thought about when he gave his inaugural address and when he was walking during the parade. I'm not really religious but thank god it went off without a hitch?

5. Congrats to the Secret Service for a job well done.

Not just today but the last four years.

7. I was not worried...DC was in major lockdown today...

I have never seen so many cops in my life...not just local DC cops..cops from every major metro city..

All Major roads were closed off..

The areas where public were allowed into the events were sealed off..only accessible via tight security..

Ninja dressed snipers on the rooftops..

Honor Guard

Virtually every US service provided guards..honorary or not

I had no idea, the secret service had so many in their numbers...

The President should feel very safe..I know I did

8. I read on a wingnut forum once

that the reason they won't harm him is they don't want to drive to work every day on Barack Obama Boulevard and they don't want their kid's diplomas to say Barack Obama High School.

It on the 'interwebz' so it must be true.

10. I was too

I was really scared the teabaggers were going to do something, like when they all took their rifles and went to a park across the river. It was one or two years ago, but it was a really dumb idea.
