Default Booing Bush...

My buddy is at the inauguration. He's been to the last few. He said this is the first he's ever heard the crowd overtly boo the outgoing President.

I think that's shameful and very low rent. The man may have made decisions that people didn't like, but it's disrespectful to the office to boo.

I personally think it taints this otherwise historic day...

That aside, I wish Barrack Obama all the luck in the World. We are in a big mess and we need to get out of it...

Classless. That's all there is to it. And yet, it doesn't surprise me one bit.

I am not a fan of Obama...but you will not hear me disrespect the office now that he has been elected. This is something that I take great pride in and something that I have passed on to my children.

Booing the past..future..or current President is ignorant...civically irresponsible...and sets a bad example to the next generation as to respect of office and title.

*On a side note...I heard Rick Warrens prayer and would respectfully disagree with him on one point. He said that we, as Americans, are not related by race, religion, or blood. I have said before and believe with all my heart that I am related by blood to my countrymen...the blood spilled by our soldiers past and present are the ties that bind me to all other Americans.

Well I didn't really hear the boos on television so it mustn’t have been too strong of a surge. I was actually going to be at the inauguration today, we have a friend who works for the government (In what job I'm not really sure) and he offered us to get tickets. Unfortunately it didn't work out and we decided not to go. My point being, if I would have been there and anyone booed either President Bush or President Obama I can tell you right now that there would have been at least words exchanged between myself and them. You don't do that. Period.

These are the same idiots that think Obama is God. Will they boo him when he reveals that he will not be offering stimulus checks this term or can't pay off your mortgage?

Do you think it was necessarily booing the office or the job he's done over the last 8 years? I'm a registered Republican, but I honestly feel like Bush has some responsibility for the mess we are in.

I was very disappointed to hear boos, I could have sworn I heard people singing "Nannah nah, nah - good-bye" as well but I'm not positive... in any case RUDE!

I was just as disappointed when McCain addressed the nation after the election was called and his supporters booed Obama, I think he handled that rather well, with dignity, and he showed them they should behave the same way...

I was moved by the speech, and I am hopeful for the future - as with any president he has 4 years to make the US a better place, let's hope he can handle it.

Regardless of the party you prefer, we're all in this together and we're all hoping he doesn't F-up the country, regardless of who we voted for, am I right? 4 Years, time will tell.
