 Mitt Romney let persons close to him know that he wasn't going to the inauguration and it was doubtful he'd even watch it. I agree with Lawrence O'Donnell and can understand why Mitt wouldn't want to attend. What I find distasteful is that the ex-Governor would share that sentiment with anyone else save his wife and family pet. In what seems to be an arc of American history that is certainly the most partisan in my recollection and lifetime, it's too bad that Willard couldn't have taken the higher road. It reminds me of unsportsmanlike behavior at middle school that most people grow out of when they reach adulthood. It seems to follow a pattern that I believe comes from a Republican Party that has disdain for people that aren't of their closed loop socioeconomic cabal.

  I will admit to being an angry camper during 8 years of W, but I was not dismissive of the  population who elected him. I guess I can thank Mittens for exhibiting behavior that I find deplorable and will do my duty to never exhibit that behavior myself.
     I'm hoping that our nation will be able to forge ahead in an ever increasingly hostile place for legislation to happen. May we look to the least fortunate among us and see that they are our future and not our liability. May we make the hard decisions and sacrifices that will ensure a bright future for those who follow us in time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
