    There I was, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with my Democrat sisters and brothers, incensed by the waste of $150K on clothes and makeup for Sarah Palin as part of her political campaign. I read blogs on MSNBC and Huffington Post, pumping my fist in the air about the wasteful nature about this $150K at the same time so many Americans were losing their jobs, cutting back on Christmas, probably inserting cat food into their diets.

    Imagine wasting $150,000 on part of a political campaign. Think of all the worthwhile uses of that $150K, the poor, the elderly, the infirm, our schools. Now I see what all our Democrat brethren meant, wringing their hands over the money wasted overseas. It boggles the mind.

    Then I saw that Obama will be spending $150 MILLION on his inauguration.

    Nevermind.

    All of it is coming from private donors for this specifically except for the money given to the inauguration every cycle. So epic fail.

    Let me help you understand the point of the post: The common denominator here is money. When you say private donations, did you know that one of the biggest contributors to Obama's campaign was Wall Street? Now let's see if we can figure out who is getting the biggest piece of the financial bailout. How's that for private donations?

    The taxpayer is paying 100 million dollars, ballywood is ponying up 60 grand. but roberto overlooks facts like that. and yes yer right no matter where it comes from it's a monumental waste of money.. google what the left said about george bush spending 40 million on his inauguration and you will get a chuckle, once again they prove their hypocrisy. :lol:

    To this, one of the biggest contributors was Wall Street. Wall Street is the biggest contributors to everybody's campaign because they have the most money.

    And if you want to know who is getting the biggest piece of the bailout, go ask the fed who is refusing to tell us who are the recipents of $2 trillion.

    Here is the point: If you voted for Obama for CHANGE, you got snookered.

    Money well spent. Sarah Palin was an absolute knockout.

    Oh and Obama is rounding up the DC homeless and sending them elsewhere for this event.... ghastly little poor people, how dare they.

    Sure, there will be change in certain policies and other policies no. This is the same for every presidency ever.

    Obama won on the Change factor because he was more Change then John McCain when compared to Bush. Whenever this country does horrible, usually the party in charge gets kicked out, screws up, gets kicked out, waits for the other party to screw up, gets back in again, and the cycle repeats.

    If Obama does good enough for the American people, Republicans are in trouble for the next 8 years.
