Obamas inauguration set to be the most exspensive in U.S. History..My quiestion is do you think they are spending way to much when America is in such a recession?

I think it's way to much money shouldn't president Obama be watching what he spends on this inauguration party.I mean George Bush cost of his inauguration party was only 42.3 and Bill Clintons was only 33million.What makes this one so different?Just wondering on your Opinion?

  • Well considering this is going to be a historical event I could see them going all out, however because of the recession I don't think they should put so much into it.

  • Aw hell, let's answer it again. If your a liberal he can spend all he wants because they don't care, whatever it takes whatever he wants as long as their man is in office. If you're a Republican with eyes wide open you are able to see the catastrophe headed our way but aren't allowed to bitch about it because 1. you are a bitch and 2. your only doing it cuz the Dems did it for 8 straight years. Throw in some Chris Matthews, blue balls, no balls, hard balls, and nutty coffee, Sara Palin and polar bears, stimulus checks and no lunch Mondays and ta da...you have your answer.

    What a bunch of garbage. There are those who did the same for Bush. Apologists abound on both sides of the aisle.
