Why didn't the "Liberal" MSM report this?

Everyone was in an uproar over Obama's inauguration costs but the "Liberal Media" failed to mention some details when comparing it to Bush's last one. Like the fact that the $40 mil cost of Dubya's party DIDN'T include security and transportation covered by the Feds but the $150 for Obama's does include those expenses.

  • How is this drama? If any of you paid attention you would have noticed I said I wasn't pleased with the money spent. Since then I have done some reading to find out that Obama's cost about the same as Dubya's and considering the drop in the dollar, the first minority president and that Bush's was for his second term I don't think it's a big deal.

  • We already know the media is liberal. They all but annointed BO as our next president. And by bringing this up, you're just wasting your time. We don't really care, honestly.

  • I will agree so far as to say that I think that every inaugural (for our modern day Presidents) event costs too much and is too over the top.
