Sean Hannity and the rest of you right wings nut jobs don't even know the meaning of truth. That's unless you consider misinformation and lies as the truth.

Marduke - Is that truth spewing from your mouth or something else?
Marduke - January 22, 2009, 5:31 pm,
No, that was honesty. Taking facts and figures out of context seems to work for the right. Could it be that it cost so much because 2 million plus wanted to see something historic. That must strike fear in the conservatives.
Mark - January 22, 2009, 5:38 pm,
Fear? No...not fear. Voting for Obama simply because you wanted to see "something historic" is like saying "Anarchy for Anarchy's sake." I figured that Obama would win. I have low expectations of my fellow Americans. McCain wasn't much of a choice.

But d***! Sarah Palin is the h**test politician I ever did see.

If Obama is so concerned about this country, why didn't he scale back the celebration and buy out a few more companies? Liberals blasted Bush for his 2004 celebration which cost half of Obama's. Hypocrites to the left of me.

I have yet to hear how much previous inaugurations have cost; does anyone have any links to sources with figures for Obama's and his predecessors?

MWLF, here you go - http://askgleaves.blogspot.com/2005/01/cost-of-inaugurations.html
WTFO - January 23, 2009, 12:43 am,
Both of W's cost $40M, Clinton's $23M and $33M, Bush elder's $30M, Reagon's about $20M each, Carter's $3.5M, Nixon's $4M, Johnson's $1.5M and Woodrow Wilson's $30K.

Thanks, WTFO ( and wow that was fast). I also found a dissenting report here: http://mediamatters.org/items/200901190004

I try to be helpful. I reviewed the counter, however, Media Matters has a well documented liberal bias. So it is very hard for me to trust that site.

Why does it have to cost ANYTHING. Can't the Chief Justice just cruise over to the winners house and swear 'em in?
Mark - April 1, 2009, 6:44 pm,
True American - That works for me. Type it up and send it up the chain. Let me know how that works out for you.

I just luv Eric Estrada. And it's good to see that his English is coming along nicely. CHiPS REUNION a.s.a.p.!

Eric Estrada!? WTF!? I thought that was Simon Cowell.

Mark, Nancy Pelosi is h**ter than Sarah.

Hector...you really need to see an Optometrist - SOON!

cost of George W. Bush's inaguration: 155 million. What's your point? And aren't we all "true" Americans? What does a "false" American look like, I wonder? As if this were the place to ask a question and expect a logical, mature answer....Go Sean!
VinceVicious - May 21, 2009, 2:28 am,
Baron, an illegal immigrant is not a "true" American, for obvious reasons. Just an example. "True" probably wasn't the best word choice but this poster is invalid without it.
