i know this is old news, but i did not see it posted up anywhere...

you would think that with the economy being the way it is, that Obama would be a little more concious about spending. 150 million dollars was spent on the Obama inaguration...what a complete waste. i think that is disgusting. how about you do something useful with that money barry, like put it toward the private sector. lets create some jobs bud.

funny how back in '04 the media had a field day with the $43,000,000 that was spent on the Bush inaguration. but no, Obama spends over 300% of what Bush spent, and you dont hear a lick about it from the media. typical.

that 150,000,000 figure for Obama includes security and transportation.

that 43,000,000 figure for Bush does not.

Bush's 2004 inauguration cost $157,000,000.

So you are telling me Obama's group was able to get three times as many people there for less money?


Sounds right.

that doesnt make it ok. i expect you to be smarter than that. the city of DC couldve made $100,000,000 more if that money wasnt spent so foolishly.

not only is it true, but another interesting fact:

majority of obama's inauguration funding: donations.

majority of bush's inauguration funding: FEMA.
