Bush Is Riding With Obama To The Swearing In???
ewww.

"In keeping with tradition, Bush will ride with Obama in an armored presidential limousine from the White House on one end of Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol building."

we heard this on a chicago radio station and that was what made me google. biden is riding in the second car with darth vader and michelle has to ride with pickles in the third car.

i don't recall clinton riding with the fuckhead in 2001. maybe it wasn't big news--but bush tainting obama on the way to him becoming president should be against the law!

2. I rather like the idea...
What better way to keep President Obama safe from the rightwing nut Bush devotees?

4. It has been so for as long
as I can remember. According to historians, the chilliest ride (inside the car) to an inaugural was Kennedy and Eisenhower, but I understand they got on better over the three years JFK was in the White House.

9. Ike was a pisser
He wouldn't get out of the limo when he arrived at the White House to greet outgoing President Truman and have the traditional coffee. Finally, Truman came out and got in the car and they went to the Capitol.

Asshole.

5. Actually Bush wants to ride in a car that is not pelted with eggs at an inauguration.

8. It's the tradition
Check your history books - it's always been done this way.

After the swearing-in ceremony concludes, the Obamas will accompany Chimpy and Pickles to the heliport behind the Capitol, and see them off.

The helicopter takes a traditional swoop over DC, and then they're transported to Andrews Air Force Base where some of their supporters will be waiting to see them off as they board a flight to Texas.

AND THEN THEY ARE GONE FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
