Former Republican congressional leader Tom DeLay has said if Obama was serious about changing Washington, he would announce: "We are in crisis, we are at war, people are losing jobs; we are not going to have this (inauguration) party. Instead, I'm going to get sworn in at the White House. I'm going to have a nice little chicken dinner, and we'll save the $US125 million."'
After eight years, the Dems have won control of the White House.
One Hundred and forty-six years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and forty-five years after the Voting Rights Act, this nation has elected a black man president.
People have a right to celebrate those things, and to say otherwise is pure petulance.
Please be quiet, Tom.
