    It's going to be hard to turn on a TV and miss it over here.

    Our inaugurations usually drag on forever. It's very hard to pinpoint the time when the actual swearing in will happen with all the music and festivites, but it should be around noon EST (GMT -5), with his inauguration address to immediately follow.

    Any of our major news outlets will be carrying a live feed online. (MSNBC.com, Cnn.com, etc.)

    I'm pretty excited myself. It's going to be quite a day.

    Let's hope some teacher at school wants to see it too [​IMG]
    I would love to see that immense amount of people tomorrow, all cheering and taking photographs of him.

    You're still in school at 6:00 PM? That's about when it will be on in Belgium, right?

    I would be astounded if I didn't see it at school. [​IMG]


    In other words. OBAMA = FAIL

    Everyone is so excited because he is black. Some guys (I think Howard Stern) when to some ghetto black town and asked which of Obama's policies did they like. He named a McCain policy and they wer all "Awwww yeeeeaaah! I luv me some !" Then he got them Fried Chicken and Kool-Aid! [​IMG]

    LOL, that's so good !
    Damn, I'm sure gonna remember that one [​IMG]

    He's a very good speaker, just amazing how he can manipulate the crowd, really amazing.
    But I'm 100% sure he won't be the 'saviour' of America like they call him. He cannot make all the promises he made happen, it's just impossible.
    He probably will be better then Bush (which is not hard [​IMG]), but in the end he won't be so good as some people think now.

    Yeah, that's it. [​IMG] There couldn't possibly be any other reason.

    Oversimplification may be the easiest way to approach a complex issue, but it's usually not the most accurate.

    Yes indeed. Can't wait to watch it. ^^ Suppose to be around 2 million people attending his speech. That's like a lot man lol. I'm deff going to watch it. People who think he will save america are expecting too much. Obama even said it himself its going to take more than 8 years to fix america. He is going to be the starter of fixing us. Rather than saving everyone. He has not even become president yet and people expect too much of him and other expect he is going to fail. People criticize to much. No one knows for sure how he is going to do. People thought bush was going to do amazing things. Now look. Humans are quick to judge.

    It's called Canvas, it's run by the government, and they provide very good coverage of international conflicts, nature and sometimes a good series (Top Gear and Rome)

    Cool. I hope Obama provides better decisions than Bush. When Bush was president, that's when the worst attack in America (9/11) happened, and I sure hope nothing bad happens during Obama's term

    I wonder when he will be shot (little bad thought maybe, but let's be realistic) ?
    I'm sure their will be assaults on his life, that's just bound to happen. Always fun to see the reaction of the president and especially his bodyguards then [​IMG]
    Let's hope it gets to YouTube [​IMG]

    Are you talking about Obama? Right now he has respect from the Middle East while Bush does not. Time will tell what they will think by the time Obama's term is over.
