Here is video from the Inaugural Luncheon today at the U.S. Capitol where First Lady Michelle Obama, while eating, gave an eye-roll to something House Speaker John Boehner said to President Obama. She was seated between the two of them.
Here is video of President Barack Obama taking the Oath of Office for his 2nd Term as President of the United States. This is the ceremonial swearing-in at the U.S. Capitol today.
The more you hear from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the more you realize he may be the future leader of the Republican Party. He describes Barack Obama perfectly here, in a discussion with Laura Ingraham, saying Obama is a President who is “high on his own power” right now:
“This is a President, I think, who has drunk the kool-aid. He is feeling right now high on his own power and he is pushing on every front, on guns. And I think it’s really sad to see the President of the United States exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme, anti-gun agenda. I think what the President is proposing, and the gun control proposals that are coming from Democrats in the Senate are, number one, unconstitutional, and number two, they don’t work.They’re bad policy.”
Here is video of President Obama speaking at the White House late last night after winning passage of the “Fiscal Cliff” Deal in the House of Representatives by a 257-167 vote. Obama thanked Vice-President Joe Biden and leaders in Congress for getting the deal done.
President Barack Obama and family jetted off to Hawaii tonight for their lavish Christmas Vacation. Obama leaves behind the “Fiscal Cliff” negotiations, just 10 days from the new year and the implementation of tax hikes on everyone and massive cuts to America’s National Defense.

Here is video of President Barack Obama dedicating his weekly address to the victims of the Newtown, Connecticut Elementary School mass murder that occurred yesterday.
Well, we knew MSNBC was an extension of the Democratic Party, but it appears Barack Obama is consulting the economic experts there as to what is best for your future. He met today with Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell on tax rates:
WEEKLY STANDARD: President Barack Obama met with several MSNBC hosts this afternoon at the White House to discuss tax rates, according to Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery. The reporter wondered if an “MSNBC love fest” was going on at the White House. . . . Read More
Aw, Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz must have felt really left out.
News is out this morning that Mitt Romney will have a private lunch with President Obama tomorrow at the White House:

There will be no press coverage of the meeting.” . . . .Read More
During his trip to Burma today, President Obama apparently repeatedly mispronounced the name of Democracy Opposition Leader Aung San Suu Kyi:
AP: . . . . . As Obama stood next to the world’s most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly.
Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting.
Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate’s name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee.
The meeting came after Obama met with Myanmar’s reformist new President Thein Sein – a name he also botched.
As the two addressed the media, Obama called his counterpart “President Sein,” an awkward, slightly affectionate reference that would make most Burmese cringe.
Note to presidential advisers: For future rounds of diplomacy, the president of Myanmar is President Thein Sein – on first and second reference. . . . Read More
Granted, it’s a tough name. I’m just surprised the AP pointed it out!
Yeshiva World News is providing a “readout” on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s phone call today to President Obama to discuss the situation in Israel:
YESHIVA WORLD NEWS: Prime Minister Netanyahu called the President today to provide an update on the situation in Israel and Gaza. The Prime Minister expressed his deep appreciation to the President and the American people for the United States’ investment in the Iron Dome rocket and mortar defense system, which has effectively defeated hundreds of incoming rockets from Gaza and saved countless Israeli lives. The President reiterated U.S. support for Israel’s right to defend itself, and expressed regret over the loss of Israeli and Palestinian civilian lives. The two leaders discussed options for de-escalating the situation. . . . Read More

Here is complete video of President Barack Obama’s Victory Speech tonight after winning re-election in the 2012 Presidential Election.
Obama spoke in Chicago, appearing on stage with his family, and then speaking for about 20 minutes. Obama thanked his supporters and seemed to make an attempt at reaching across the aisle, although it remains to be seen whether he will make any real attempt to build a working relationship with Republican leaders in the House and Senate, and be willing to compromise in order to tackle the massive budget deficit and national debt the nation faces. Much of his speech was a recycling of his campaign stump speech and going all the way back to his 2004 Democratic Convention Speech about America not being made up of “red states and blue states.”
Here is a live video stream of tonight’s third and final Presidential Debate from Boca Raton, Florida, between Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. This debate will focus on Foreign Policy, and will be moderated by longtime CBS News reporter and anchor, Bob Schieffer. It will run from 9:00 – 10:30 PM ET.
Below is a second live video stream:

Tapper also mentions Romney is surging in the key Battleground States, leading Obama 51%-46%, according to a new poll by USA Today/Gallup in those states.
Here’s a powerful new ad by “Women Speak Out PAC” that highlights Barack Obama’s extremist position on denying protection to infants born alive during abortion procedures. As an Illinois State Legislator, Barack Obama opposed the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act,” which would have required care be given to babies that survived abortion procedures. This ad features a registered nurse and a young woman who survived a botched abortion.
