Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

In Washington, even Democrats may find themselves wishing this weekend that they had voted for Mitt Romney — considering the economic boost that comes from a fresh presidential inauguration compared with the lackluster redo planned for President Obama's second term.
"The novelty has worn off," said Susan Lacz, owner of the Ridgewells Catering. "Four years ago, it was such a phenomenon that we had our first African-American president that everybody wanted a piece of it, everyone wanted to be part of history in the making. But we're certainly not at the same capacity as we were then."
Simply put: "If there was not an inauguration, we would have less business," said Ridgewells' Ms. Lacz. "A regular week in January is slow around here, but with an inauguration there's plenty of business to go around."
