The economy was good in 2004 relative to today when people are losing homes, jobs and major corporations are failing at historic rates.

Obama has started a lot of good dialogue and rhetoric in his early days. In the Inaugaration he had a chance to set a prescedent by practicing what he preaches.

By not putting Country First in preference of his own desires he has failed miserably.

We miss you, RR. This country has been led by one schmuck after another since your VP got screwed in 92.

Please answer why you are not outraged at both?

i'm not outraged at either. it's just how much it costs. the bulk of it is spent on cleaning up afterwards and security and crap like that. all the stuff like staging and performances were paid for with private donations.

they are important historical reference points. america loves stupid crap like that to feel good. how much tax money is spent on the friggin blue angels?

I am pissed that we as a nation are ok with any president spending 9 figures on a party for himself.

Sounds an awful lot like the parties that the French "royalty" threw for themselves.

I personally can't stand anything about Washington or the politics oozing from it, but I'm not bent out of shape over this one.

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.

You must be one of the 15% of Americans who hate Obama. ... that's what I hear, anyway.

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.

If it was a party for himself, millions would not have showed up. Same for Bush, it was not a party for himself. The nation watches...for both Republican presidents and Democratic presidents...at least they should.

Unimportant party to stroke ones ego. Sorry but its the truth.

Such foolish spending of taxpayers money will lead to revolt, and I don't know that I won't be part of it.

When Jimmy Carter tried to do things on the cheap he was looked down upon and he lost cred. Nothing you do will please everybody, somebody is going to bitch and moan (venom).

That inauguration pumped millions into the pockets of regular working Americans who may have been laid off otherwise.

WE NEED TO SPEND MONEY!!! The stupid fools who are holding it and not spending or reinvesting are the ones really hurting the economy. Especially those who've been blessed with 10mill bonuses and such.

This is the largest consumer economy in the world. It only works when cash flows from the bottom up.

WRONG

yes we all need to spend money, but not the government. Do you understand that every nickle that they spend has to come out of the taxpayers pocket?

Spending 150,000,000 on a party is outrageous. That did not save any jobs outside of the federal sector.

Quit with your silly excuses.

What else does the gov do but spend money?

How many private contractors were involved with that party? My guess, very many.

Since when did the federal sector start catering or doing flower arrangements? That money went to regular Americans. People put in long hours and got paid.

To you that would be inexcusable? Stop hating.
