64 dems plan on missing Inaugaration

Showing their true colors, politics first instead of wanting to unite the country
after all their rhetoric. Putting them selves first. Poor unpatriotic losers.

I agree
it is the UNITED States but self absorbed political hacks want to call attention to themselves, they were probably spoiled as children.
time for them to grow up and get over themselves along with the rest of the crybabies

So it's ok to have an obstructionist house and senate for the past bunch of years that tried to block obama from doing anything but this is a bad thing? Ok.

I don't recall Republicans doing this at Obama's inauguration or even having any sitdowns in congress like a hissy fit

In order to get things done there has to be compromise and agreements, to just totally turn up your nose is a defeatists attitude

someone needs to lead negotiations, and I am willing to bet Trump will do more of that than Obama ever did

Respect the office and the democratic process, especially when in an elected office themselves..... As for obstructionist, isn't this the political operandi we have come to live with, no matter which party is in the White House? Not saying I agree with it at all. None of these current Congressional members knows how to get a deal done. Tip ONeill and Reagan could sit down and get things done for the benefit of the people. Both could negotiate, and come out with a beneficial product. Now we have two parties so divided that they must "win" at all costs and the public be damned..... I am a right leaning conservative independent. Voted against Hillary. So I therefore support the only candidate that could have kept her out of that office. Voting in a sophomoric senator with no qualifications to the White House for two terms and then voting in Elizabeth lying Warren to the Senate?????? It should not surprise you to see the pendulum swing to the other extreme. And that is how you get to a Trump White House.

That is how it is supposed to be. The President is supposed to execute the will of Congress, not the other way around. When Obama and Congress were on the same page, he "did" what he wanted. In actuality, he did what Congress wanted by not vetoing it. His Democat controlled Congress passed the ACA. Even though not one Republican Congressman voted for it. Whenever the Republican controlled Congress wanted to pass something, Obama vetoed it, and was successful in doing so because the Democrats in the Senate backed his veto. This is how it has always been. And it will be the same during Trump's tenure. Whatever he thinks he wants to "do" will actually be what Congress wants to do. Even it's his idea, or what he campaigned on. It will be Congress's decision--Congress's prerogative.

Of course, there is the executive order nonsense. Obama "did" a lot with that. Trump may do the same.

Chief of Staff Don Regan’s description of the Reagan-O’Neill relationship: “Sometimes they’d have a meeting and Tip would be there and they’re laughing and getting along and it’s very warm. And then, Tip would leave, go up to the Hill and turn on him just like a snake! It was treachery!’

“The evil is in the White House at the present time. And that evil is a man who has no care and no concern for the working class of America and the future generations of America, and who likes to ride a horse. He’s cold. He’s mean. He’s got ice water for blood.” Tip O'Neill 1984

I don't think you'll find a Reagan quote describing O'Neill in such a way....Reagan understood our system of government and the role of the Presidency, had to work with/through O'Neill.....Reagan was the better man no doubt.....

the left has created the environment that has allowed Trump to become president and has also given him powers that will likely make them apoplectic for the next 4-8 years...can't say they weren't warned....

this was a very popular meme for the left in this country over the last 8 years...I wonder if it still applies?

The reason for the Inaugaration is to celebrate the peaceful transition of
power and swearing in of the new Commander in Chief, not the time or place for politics.

I think you are a bit off, here's why...

Voting on bills is obviously a partisan, political act.

The presidential inauguration is not a political event. It is NOT an endorsement of the new President. It is a civic celebration of maybe the most gloriously democratic feature of our nation - the peaceful (except for the liberal rioters, naturally) transfer of power from one leader to the next.

Skipping an inauguration is a crummy thing for an elected official to do. If you want to block every policy Trump wants to endorse, fine. But the man won the election, and the fact that we had the election, is worth celebrating, REGARDLESS OF WHO WINS.

Liberals don't buy this. All they care about is getting their way, every single time.

When was the last time, in this nation, that the police had to fire tear gas, and break out riot gear, because of a conservative political protest? How come that never happens?
