    I'm just surprised to hear that the American dollar is in even worse condition than I'd thought, since our government is apparently paying for the inaugeration in British pounds.

    But alas, the thread is about the mediaís desperate desire to impugn Bush for spending $60 million less than Obama.

    But hey, why stick to the premise of the thread when you can childishly insult people at a personal level right?

    Carry on; as is typical with you, you seldom comprehend the topic and when confronted with your inane statements, resort to schoolyard child like insults.

    You're kidding right? Take a look at the economy when Bush took office and take a look at it now. Big difference.

    Sorry spending $100 million on this is foolish.

    Don't make me laugh. Please? I beg of you. Don't make me laugh? Wait....aha-aahahahahaha. Too late.

    But alas, the thread is about the mediaís desperate desire to impugn Bush for spending $60 million less than Obama.
    Wrong. The topic in discussion is Obama spending 110 million on his inauguration. I said this is a good considering all the business it'll bring in for the surrounding states and the city of D.C.. You came up with some irrelevant nonsense about Bush like I actually gave a ****. The ONLY times the article even mentions Bush are :

    As the Obama team went into damage control over Geither, President Bush declared a state of emergency in Washington - because so many people were expected to attend the inauguration.
    Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty revealed that is amount that will be billed in the days after the January 20th event. US authorities had previously budgeted just £10m for the day based on previous inaugurations for George Bush and Bill Clinton.

    A White House spokesman said President Bush had willingly approved the extra money.

    He said President Bush 'declared an emergency exists in the District of Columbia' linked to the inauguration.
    But tell us all what you think the thread is about if not the money Obama is spending. Or am I in the wrong section where you see a Breaking News article and then make up your own version of what the thread is about?

    But hey, why stick to the premise of the thread when you can childishly insult people at a personal level right?[

    Carry on; as is typical with you, you seldom comprehend the topic and when confronted with your inane statements, resort to schoolyard child like insults.

    Yawn. Come back when I care about you crying every time you bait and then get smacked around. And roll your eyes some more please? Makes me feel masculine.

    yup, not sure how much but ticket prices are double and no one in the surrounding area can afford to go...


    People going to obama are going to see obama, a few may do well that day but after that, dc as usual....


    what can one make, an extra grand? if that? please, your argument that the inaguration will be good for dc is dumb and short sighted.

    Depends. The inauguration doesn't take into consideration pover 2-3 days including events, balls, outdoor events etc etc? Add to that the number of people who'll go see the sights, eat out, stay at hotels/motels etc etc. The presidential inauguration is a once in 4 year event. People can go see a Yankees game pretty much all season long.
