During a luncheon after today's inauguration, GOP speaker of the House John Boehner cracked a joke to President Obama which didn't impress the First Lady.
First lady Michelle Obama, who was sitting between the two men, rolled her eyes after Rep. Boehner's joke (video below) at the 9 second mark.
Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney wasn’t to be found among the guests at President Obama’s second inauguration. A Romney aide said it was “doubtful" that the GOP candidate would even watch the ceremonies on TV, reports Mediaite.com.
MSNBC reported that this makes Romney the first losing candidate not to attend an inauguration since former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis didn’t attend the inauguration of George H.W. Bush in 1989.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said that Romney’s putting the word out that he wouldn’t attend was in effect “making himself the story” (video below).
Romney's running mate Rep. Paul Ryan was actually booed at the inauguration.
