    Bush declares a 'state of emergency' in Washington as cost of Obama's swearing-in cer

    Bush declares a 'state of emergency' in Washington as cost of Obama's swearing-in ceremony soars to 110m


    Bush declares a 'state of emergency' in Washington as cost of Obama's swearing-in ceremony soars to 110m | Mail Online



    Barack Obama's inauguration is set to cost more than 100m making it the most expensive swearing-in ceremony in US history.


    The President-elect will take less than a minute to recite the oath of office in front of an estimated two million people in the US capital next week.

    But by the time the final dance has been held at one of the many inaugural balls the costs for the day will be a staggering 110m.


    And to think this is the worst economy since when?

    This is just more of the same. Were you surprised?

    I certainly wasn't.

    I am just waiting to see those who chastized Bush for the same thing hold Obama to the same light....


    And yes, both are too expensive.

    You would think there would be a little more attention given to the plight of the average American in their time of need.

    Some would tend to think that this is a coronation - Not an inauguration. Government loves to spend our tax dollars royally, and send us the bill, which we can't afford.

    If I were to spend too much money on credit, I would lose everything I have . If government does it, then it gets to spend even more. It just prints more money. Of course, if I were to do the same, it is called counterfeiting.

    More pretzel logic from Washington.

    Bush was chastised for spending $44 million. The media could not get enough of the hype on how much he was spending; suddenly, this is an HISTORIC moment and this obscene amount is JUSTIFIED because he is the "messiah!"

    You just can't make this Liberal crapola up folks; and there is NO bias in the media much like the excuse making surrounding Timothy Geitner and his failure to pay taxes.

    This is yet more proof that our economy will continue to be screwed if the government doesn't quit spending frivolously and throwing money around like confetti. Yeah, it's going to be an historic event. However, considering these tough economic times it's time to tighten the purse strings a bit more. Spending so much money isn't going to somehow make it more historic.

    Is there not profound irony that the media is ignoring this while they jumped on George Bush for spending $44 million? But alas, there is NO bias in the mainstream "drive-by" media according to the forum Liberals.

    For a long time the media has had their own agenda and it certainly isn't to report accurately. It boils down to money and ratings. Integrity has gone out the window long ago.
