    It was only a "lie" to those ingorant souls who were weak enough to believe it. Those who knew better had the ability to seperate campaign BS and real world practical demands.

    "Right and wrong" will only get a person so far before he is faced with real world twists and turns. To the Republicans....recognize what you supported under Bush and applaud Obama a little more. To Democrats....become the hypocrits Republicans expect you to be or continue the protests and undermine our President.

    I'm talking about consumers spending their money on goods and services because the inauguration was an event on the scale that it was.

    Those millions of people that went to Washington DC and tens of millions of others watching, spent hundreds of dollars each on goods/services. That spending helped the economy that night.
