The Barack Obama inaugural gala is expected to cost upwards of $150 million.
Where’s the outrage?! We’re in a recession, millions are without jobs, and the Obama camp is sticking it us all by having party after party, concert after concert.
In 2005, Reps. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., and Jim McDermott, D-Wash., asked Bush to show a little less pomp and be a little more circumspect at his party.
“President Roosevelt held his 1945 inaugural at the White House, making a short speech and serving guests cold chicken salad and plain pound cake,” the two lawmakers wrote in a letter. “During , President Wilson did not have any parties at his 1917 inaugural, saying that such festivities would be undignified.”
The inaugural committee says Americans won’t look at it as just a party, but a celebration of common values. Who’s common values? What are they talking about? It’s just a bunch of parties costing the taxpayers about $100 million after security and transportation costs are added in.
I can’t wait to read about the crime statistics in DC during this time. Oh wait, I bet the liberal media won’t let us know.
Liberals really piss me off sometimes.
