That's the way the system works.

I am sorry but I don't think it is proper or right for our President to throw a party (no matter who pays for it, as the taxpayers are still paying for much of it anyway) when there are citizens who are financially and/or emotionally hurting or both. He also shouldn't take expensive vacations that we are paying for when his citizens are hurting so badly. It is an abomination to do anything else. It screams of disrespect to our citizens who are struggling or otherwise hurting in this economy. I strongly disapprove.

Wouldn't care to waste time on his inauguration (again, for pity's sake) but I'd sure feel like celebrating his final departure!

ms: I agree. I won't even be watching the pomp and ceremony of this out-of-control-spending administration while many of us are feeling the effects of a depressed economy and struggling to make ends meet. Let the madness stop!
