WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has prepared a second inaugural address that broadly lays out his vision for the country's future while leaving the details of the policy fights over taxes, guns, immigration and other divisive issues for another day.

White House aides say the president will not make a policy speech Monday after taking his oath of office on the Capitol's west front. Rather, the president plans to use the moment as it traditionally has been used in most of the 56 previous inaugurations - to talk about American values.

White House advisers see the inaugural speech as the opening opportunity to discuss Obama's second-term agenda, but in broad terms. They say he will talk policy specifics at the State of the Union address Feb. 12.

American...

American Values? He wouldn't know an American value if it jumped up and bit him. Arrogant fool. If congress doesn't do what he wants, he flips them off and does it himself. The congress was created FOR A REASON!!! It was to keep those like his lowness, king O'Bama from screwing up the entire government and taking away the rights WE ARE DUE by keeping them in check. You watch, by the end of this term, he will declare abolishment of the presidential system in favor of something that allows him to remain in power until he dies. And, for those who think this is hogwash, look at what's already happened in Washington in the last four years that we thought would never happen in this country.

Declare abolishment of the presidential system ???

Are you so stupid that you actually have no idea of how our system of government works? Under our present system of government that would be impossible.

Why even bother to post something if you don't even understand the basic concepts of how our government works?

Guest 10101...

I DO know how the government is supposed to work...HE doesn't. You obviously have not been paying very much attention to how he's skirted the congress in the last eight months and made his own 'executive' decisions. Why don't YOU stop posting dribble when you are not paying attention and don't know what you're talking about and, for that matter, do some research before you call someone stupid, bully.

I'm Glad

to see that paranoia is alive and well in the U.S.A.

Glad to see you are not

Glad to see you are not fooled by the smoke and mirrors of this administration, congress needs to get off their lazy butts and impeach this guy before this hole he has dug us starts to cave in on us. 6 trillion dollars in under 4 years to the debt, skyrocketing gasprices, grocery prices, electric bills, insurance bills, every facet of our life has taken a hit, money markets paying .15%, credit rating done took one hit and every country in the world with their hand out, it's time to see this brought under control.

Haters just keep on Hating..

What a sad life you must lead. This is a day of celebration for our country. Maybe you would be happier somewhere else?

Thanks to my fellow posters

Thanks to my fellow posters for pointing out RSimmons’ ignorance of the diversity I'm sure he celebrates. And thanks to RSimmons for documenting you ignorance of that diversity.

I freely admit, I hate

I freely admit, I hate socialists like Reichskanzler Obama and his freeloading, foodstamping subjects like RSimmons.

There you go again ...

Like I always say to your stupidity: You're not smart and you're not funny but you are consistent. "Reichskanzler (Just another proof of how stupid you are; it's actually "Reich Chancellor"), is just such a stupid thing to post ther's no reason to follow your illogicity any further.

Come back when you get an education, or just continue to embarass yourself

.......

Reichskanzler (Chancellor of the Reich), its German.... correct spelling in German.

Reichskanzler is correct in

Reichskanzler is correct in German, true. It is also worth remembering that Nazi POWs were better treated in this community than returning African American soldiers back in the "day".

On the contrary..

On the contrary RSimmons...This is a horrific day for this nation. If you were an educated individual who was not so easily impressed by the surface, you would agree with me. You would see that the very fabric of MY nation is slowly and methodically being pulled apart. Why is it when liberals don't agree with something they either yell "hate" or something of that nature. I am a realist my friend. My eyes are wide open. I'm afraid you cannot say the same.

RSimmons, I agree with

RSimmons, I agree with you... yesterday was a day of celebration for us, the people of these United States. 6858, I also agree with you. The fabric of your nation is finally being pulled apart. The Confederate States of America lost the war in 1865.

LOL

SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP.
