Mom, I thought our country was broke? He kind of has a point--

My kids are off today, and my son asked me how much Obama's party is costing today, I said I don't know, he informed me that it probably was much more than his birthday party was, LOL. To be honest, no matter who won the election, I think they could have downscaled all of the pomp and circumstance, and made a point to the American public the reason for it. I thought he had a pretty good observation, LOL

  • I realize that they have some private donors that help with the cost but it's really outrageous when the country is going down the drain to have any kind of party of this magnitude. It doesn't matter who won. The money easily could have made a lot of seniors happy for awhile.

  • I agree. Also, I know I keep saying this, but I don't see the point of having one for a second term anyway.

  • Which party? There are two inaugural balls today. So have him multiply that number by two and then see what he has to say.  I also read that the luncheon weighed in at a whopping 3000 calories.  I guess when they say fat cats, they really mean it.

  • No matter who is celebrating their Presidency the cost always exceeds.

  • I think the fact he can't watch the People's Court is making him mad, LOL-I have no idea why he loves that show, he wants to be a lawyer (this month)! I have to admit, it didn't even cross my mind the enormity of the bill, but can you imagine the extra police, secret service, not to mention food etc.! He is very aware of the expense of birthday parties, that is what he is calling in Obama's birthday party!
