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.

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they are important historical reference points.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.
