Now come on. You all know that no president prior to Obama held any
inauguration events. That Obama! Had a big party 4 years ago and here
he's doing it again. Why isn't he more like Bush and Reagan who just
meekly and quietly took the oath of office in the Oval Office with no one around
and then got right to work. Didn't spend one penny, those guys. You know,
Reagan took office in the middle of a recession, so for sure he wouldn't
have had a big party, right?
His inauguration will be a lot like four years ago. After for years we are
still hoping for a change.
@ mohokat: Actually, California has a budget surplus this year.And
are you really claiming that if I give you $30 to spend on your birthday and you
actually spend it as I requested, you are doing something wrong? Really?
We won't go broke paying for inaugurations, and, yes, certain large
corporations are known to throw in money. You know - freedom of speech. Thanks
for asking about CA, though it has little to do with my post. Isn't it
great to know that the deficits here are WAY down from the previous GOP
The inauguration comes with the job. Romney would have had one, too, and
everyone here would have fawned all over it.
@Mark B Much funded Privately? I doubt it but as I said spending other peoples
money. And you are right Bush did spend way to much. While we are at it how is
the spending in CA. Now there is a train wreck. But you all sure know fiscal
responsibility when you see it. No wonder you defend the King.
Totally agree with mohokat. Makes me long for true leadership like we had with
George W. Bush! We need the Tea Party to help us take our country back!
His extortion of elite supporter's money is laughable and shameful. The
president should put a sign on the White House lawn - For Sale.
Much of the inauguration expenses are funded privately, but it sounds as though
mo wouldn't be happy until it's held in a phone booth. BTW, did he
complain about the Bush inauguration? Now THERE was a guy who could pile up the
Still Grand? Why would we expect anything else from him. He does things grand.
Taking the country down the tubes in grand style. Sould it be any different than
his $7million vacation? Typical Socialist spend other peoples money. What a
