Obama Inauguration Costs

with 5 comments

Isn’t funny that today the liberal media is no where to be found when analyzing and reporting on the cost of the Obama inauguration?  Remember back four years ago, the media said that it was in poor taste for Republicans to spend $40 million on President Bush’s inauguration.  It was reported that the money could be used to help victims of the tsunami or to pay down the debt.  It was suggested that the inauguration functions be cancelled. 

Today, what is the liberal media saying about the estimated $45M-$70M price tag for the Obama coronation?  Nothing.  We are in the midst of a severe recession and federal budget deficits that will exceed $1 trillion and still not a hint of a word about scaling back the party.   If we follow the AP’s suggestion from four years ago, why don’t we just cancel the inauguration?  Oh, I almost forgot, this is a coronation not an inauguration.

  1. I thought the country was in the midst of a depression? If so, what are all these people spending their last dollars on trying to reach Washignton DC for the inauguration? You can stay home and watch 1M of our fellow citizen as their messiah assends to the throne. I am praying for the cold weather to grip D.C. on Tuesday morning.

  2. In 1841 then President William Harrison was overcome by the cold weather for his inauguration and died 31 days later. We certainly do not wish that on Obama. I concur with you and want all those fools who were duped by the media and voted for Obama to feel the freeze that he will inflict on this nation.

  4. Harrison faced extremely cold and wet day and delviered his address without an over coat. His address is the longest inaugural address in American history, at 8,444 words. It took two hours to read .
