This bugs me Pres. Obama

Got this over at Gunslingers. . .

Headlines About Bush's Inauguration:

"Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops Die in unarmored Humvees"

"Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times"

"Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party, Ordinary Americans get the shaft"

Headlines About Zero's Inauguration:

"Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $120 million"

"Obama Spends $120 million on inauguration; America Needs A Big Party"

"Everyman Obama shows America how to celebrate"

"Citibank executives contribute $8 million to Obama Inauguration"
I know it was historic and all but with our nation in the shape it is we did not need a POTUS that will piss away money like this. I really find it telling that Bush got shit over his costs and Obama got a pass from the Media that elected him.

This does not bode well for our country. The media has an important job of keeping us informed and the government transparent as much as it can. It has give up this job and sold us out in the name of Obama. I hope they find their way back to what they should be doing and give Obama the same scrutiny they gave Bush - that is their job. If they abandon that we are all in trouble. We need a neutral media that goes after ALL the folks in DC, not just the ones with an R after their names.
