The mainstream media keeps reinforcing their view that America is suffering the worst economic downturn since the Depression.
I’m not sure I buy that, Exhibit A being the horrific Carter years. But if we take the Obama worshippers in the press at their word, then how do you explain the ridiculous, over-the-top spending for this inauguration?
Even MSNBC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party questions the price tag:
"In 2005, Reps. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., and Jim McDermott, D-Wash., asked Bush to show a little less pomp and be a little more circumspect at his party.
'President Roosevelt held his 1945 inaugural at the White House, making a short speech and serving guests cold chicken salad and plain pound cake,' the two lawmakers wrote in a letter. 'During World War I, President Wilson did not have any parties at his 1917 inaugural, saying that such festivities would be undignified.'
The thinking was that, with the nation at war, excessive celebration was inappropriate. Four years later, the nation is still at war. Unemployment has risen sharply. And Obama pressed Congress to release the second half of a $700 billion bailout package in hopes of rescuing a faltering banking industry."
Doesn’t matter this time around folks because it’s the liberals throwing the party, and we all know how they love to spend your money.
