McManus claims otherwise. He'll use term one lessons learned going forward, he said. He'll "spend more time enlisting ordinary voters in his battles - over the debt ceiling, gun control and everything else."
He'll "rally public" sentiment to support him. He's "turning his presidential campaign into a permanent network called Organizing for Action."
He'll stop short of being "over-ambitious." He entered office in term one "with a huge electoral mandate." He controlled both houses of Congress.
His current "expectations" are "trimmed." He'll pursue "deficit reduction, tax reform, infrastructure spending, immigration reform and gun control."
He'll stress "soaring hopes and national unity." Obama today is the "same man he was four years ago, but he's a very different politician."
Obama indeed is no different. He spurns popular interests. He betrays constituent supporters. He wages war on truth. He mocks legitimate governance.
He's escalating greater harm. He's doing it globally. He menaces humanity. It may not survive another four years.
On January 20, Chief Justice John Roberts administered Obama's official oath of office. At midday, it was done quietly. It took two minutes in the White House Blue Room.
On January 21, public theater followed. Pomp and circumstance continued ad nauseam.
Ceremonial excess included patriotic music, bells pealing, the traditional post-inaugural parade and ball, parties, and candlelight celebrations throughout the evening.
Flags adorned Washington buildings, banks, commercial establishments, hotels, metal barriers, concrete ones, and a presidential reviewing stand.
Hundreds of thousands assembled. They filled the National Mall. Few got close enough to see much. Why they came, they'll have to explain.
Most people watched on television. Doing so wasted time better spent on constructive things.
Obama repeated Sunday's oath. He promised "to the best of (his) ability, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
He lied like he always does. He's a serial liar. He spurns international, constitutional, and US statute laws. He does so with impunity.
