Open thread: Obama inauguration

posted at 11:01 am on January 21, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Today will likely be a slow news day, except for the one big event taking place in Washington DC today — the ceremonial inauguration of Barack Obama for his second term as President.  Four years ago, nearly two million people crowded into the Mall for President Obama’s first inaugural address.  Today, organizers are trying to manage expectations for a much lower turnout.  How much lower?  Fox’s Carl Cameron reports that organizers predict a falloff of as much as 75% from the first inauguration:

“They expect that in fact it could be significantly smaller,” said Fox News reporter Carl Cameron. “Instead of 1.8, four years ago, They have actually lowered their crowd estimates. Originally they were saying, 600 to 800,000. Yesterday we were informed organizers think maybe closer to 500 to 700 [thousand]. Perhaps only a quarter of the size of four years ago.”

I suspect that the crowd will be a little larger than that.  This sounds a bit like sandbagging, a way to claim later that the crowd exceeded expectations as a way to pump up Obama’s standing momentarily. However, since Obama has already taken the oath — yesterday, as required by the Constitution — perhaps this will seem even more anticlimactic than it already is:

Obama takes the oath of office at 11:55 am ET, according to the schedule, but there are plenty of events already taking place, so tune in right away if you want to catch, say, Chuck Schumer deliver opening remarks at 11:30. (Interesting program note: They’re giving James Taylor five minutes to sing “America the Beautiful.”) If you want to watch this live, CBS News has an embeddable video stream, posted below. If you want to watch it without commentary, I’d suggest C-SPAN.

If you find yourself unexcited by all of this, don’t worry — you’re not alone. Even Dana Milbank is unenthused about this “tepid rerun”:

Four years ago, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the capital, sleeping on floors and lining the streets so that they could be part of history: the inauguration of the first black president, who had the promise of being a transformational figure that could bring hope and change to a broken political system.

That messiah never came, and a sluggish economic recovery overshadowed his term. Obama was reelected less because he inspired the nation than because he discredited his opponent. Most Americans still think that the country is headed in the wrong direction, and just one in five trust their government to do the right thing.

Much of this says less about Obama than about the times. But the president manages to make his own presidency seem smaller by his frequent invocations of our greatest president. Obama, who launched his first presidential campaign in the place where Abraham Lincoln delivered his “House Divided” speech, will place his hand Monday, as he did in 2009, on the Bible Lincoln used for his 1861 inauguration. …

Lincoln’s second inaugural had the lines many Americans still know by heart: “judge not, that we be not judged,” and “fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray,” and, “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

Talk about managing expectations ….

Inviting comparison to that moment inevitably makes Obama’s second-term program, as he outlined it last week — “making modest adjustments to programs like Medicare” and “closing loopholes in our tax code” — seem little. At his news conference Monday, Obama vowed: “I intend to carry out the agenda that I campaigned on — an agenda for new jobs, new opportunity and new security for the middle class.”

Finally owning up to your Obama worship, eh? Do you and Reggie take turns?

HumpBot Salvation on January 21, 2013 at 12:30 PM

I’m so happy that America made the right choice and picked President Obama for another 4 years. You made the right choice guys!

The really weird part is how we can both look and see FDR here.
 
(It’s okay if you don’t understand what I mean. That’s sort of my point.)

That would have been quite the time traveling trick, since Das Kapital wasn’t written until 1867 and Marxism didn’t formally exist until 1890.

1848-1849 Revolutions.

The Communist Manifesto was written in 1848.

Well looky there, I made a format error. Lol!

Bmore on January 21, 2013 at 12:31 PM

LoL. They can come on over to my house too. Word is they think Obama’s just as much of an d-bag as the rest of us. Maybe we’ll hit the strip club and yuck it up over a few beers.

If you promise to pay me $400, I’ll join ya.
First round on me.

katy the mean old lady on January 21, 2013 at 12:32 PM

What an amazing event. I’m glad that we as a country could come together despite our differences and support our president today. There’s a lot of work to do going forward but he is most definitely the man for the job. It’s a bright future for America.

O/T: For those who don’t know, I wrote a blog calling Hillary a liar, and chump’s panties remain in a wad about it.

kingsjester on January 21, 2013 at 12:28 PM

Awesome. Keep doing it.

SparkPlug on January 21, 2013 at 12:32 PM

Can this guy make a speech without shouting?

Guess in those circles, the louder you are, the more righteous you are somehow.

Dr. ZhivBlago on January 21, 2013 at 12:09 PM

I wouldn’t mind the shouting so much if he sounded like a man.

But that whiny little shriek of his grates on one’s ears.

On a positive note as Mark Steyn said on Rush’s show today, this is “hump day”. It’s all down hill from here.

ncjetsfan on January 21, 2013 at 12:33 PM

Can you share the names of these executives you plan on shooting? We know that’s how your crew operates.

HotAirLib on January 21, 2013 at 12:11 PM

Now watch as the screaming pig HotAirLib shuts its cakehole.

Any answers, screaming pig? Those are direct threats to murder Republicans, all made by your Barack Obama and your Barack Obama’s supporters.

Now, are you going to demand those people be arrested and punished, or are you going to expose yourself as a screaming liar and hypocrite?

What’s the matter, HotAirLib and lostmotherland? Why do you support murdering Republicans? Why do you endorse Obama’s support of murdering Republicans?

SWalker on January 21, 2013 at 12:31 PM

The 1848-49 revolutions had absolutely nothing to do with Communism and the Communist Manifesto was basically ignored until after Marx wrote Das Kapital.

SWalker on January 21, 2013 at 12:34 PM

yessirreee bob!!! that Obama is going to bring this nation together all right. It will be the biggest street fight in the world.

Typhonsentra on January 21, 2013 at 12:32 PM

Yep,

President Barack Obama averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the

lowest

for post-World War II presidents. Only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford had lower job approval averages.

Good news! It’s only downhill from here!!!!!

Today in many ways is a culmination of a 45-year battle to knock the load-bearing pillars out from under a once-great nation.
Never underestimate the damage that can be done to a great nation by the worst members of an evil-saturated generation.
cane_loader on January 21, 2013 at 12:07 PM

A lot longer than 45 years, try closer to 100. This shit started under Teddy Roosevelt who was America’s first Progressive Marxist President.
