"The 2005 Bush inauguration..."

"...despite occurring in boom times, was, I remember, deemed by the media as crass and a rich man’s fest, insensitive to the general poverty around."

"The more than twice as expensive 2009 Obama inauguration, despite occurring in a severe recession, is a measured and proper celebration of diversity and landmark progress. Annuit coeptis indeed."

Twice as expensive? Most reports have it nearly 4 times as expensive (40 mil vs 150 mil). But don't expect to hear any complaints from the MSM.

remember how the media went apeshit over sarah palin's wardrobe... and the matching absolute, utter silence around obama's half million dollar parthenon?

which, by the way, you smug little greenies... was used once and discarded.

orwell was right... about equality.

It had to cost a lot more. There were fives times the people. That means five time the security, five times the porta potties, and five times the love. Also the people in attendance were the poor and lower middle class so most of the money went to the people who deserved it. The working poor have not recieved much else over the past 8 years from the govenment.
