If the Dow is any indication by it’s slide today (the losest ever on an inaugural) Barack Obama’s coronation, anointing, inauguration is a total dud.
The New Republic’s liberals called the “speech” a disappointing Hodgepodge.
When such liberal bastions as Fire Dog Lake say it was the worst inauguration ever, you know Barack Obama has a $171 Million Flop on his hands.
