I was bored, so I googled "Obama's Inauguration Cost"

Obama's Inauguration Cost Set to Pass $150 Million, Becoming Most Expensive Inauguration Ever
Quote:
Obama's inauguration cost is going to become quite expensive. The cost of President-elect Barack Obama's presidential inauguration is rumored to cost between $150 and $160 million to pull off. Having such a high cost for the Obama inauguration of course brings to mind comparisons between Obama's and that of past Presidents of the United States. The last inauguration, which took place in 2005 for President George W. Bush cost only $42.3 million, whereas the 1993 inauguration for President Bill Clinton totaled $33 million.

My question, why do we even need one? The turkey allready is in office. Have a private ceremony in the oval office and be done with it. If he were ANY kind of President (or American) he would reduce the national debt by the estimated cost and do the private thing. Heck, they could post it on the internet for free. Why didn't he take Trump up on the 5MM to prove he is qualified to hold the office and do the same with Trumps money? For that kind of money he could fund another day or two of the wars we are stupidly involved in. Heaven forbid we do something within our country to serve our own people.

psychopath... it's all about him... his lavish hyde park home - maybe not so lavish, but the 3 neighborhoods, just west of his Washington Park, Englewood and West Englewood - languish... what a bad man.

The Obamas are about to embark on a 20 day Hawaiian vacation that will run from December 17th to January 6th. The cost to U.S. taxpayers will be around $4 million.

Yeah, like it has been any different for any other president in past history? Sure, I don't like him but really, inaugurations and vacations? You could pin that on every other president. It's getting very left wing up in here.

Oh and rumored to cost. /golfclap

I will never forget the day when he said "Shovel ready wasn't as shovel ready as we expected" and the whole panel of people laughed out loud about it. Billions of dollars wasted....he was wrong...and he laughed about it.

I agree,just the same old same old. If you don't like a politician, just dig around, you'll find something to whine about, and whine they do. Which brings to mind, did anyone ever do a poll to see the geographical make up of where TT members are from? By most of the political threads, something tells me the Northeast and West coast are the minority.
