No man, black or white, would make you ignorant, bigots happy. You above posters are a part of the human race that cause hatred among people. Do you feel better about yourselves to belittle someone who is of a different race or political party than your own?
We are the UNITED States of America. We should pull together to make sure we become a strong, economically sound nation. You people will only deter this. And of course, by not doing so, you all will be the first ones to complain and blame the President. One man can not do it alone, he needs the help and backing of his nation. Try standing up for our country instead of spewing your ignorance. Be strong, proud Americans, get off your butts and do something constructive for our nation.
Did you say this when George W. Bush was in office?

I can't understand why some people have to complain about petty things as who's paying for the party. Give Obama a break, he deserves to celebrate. After all he is making history now and in years to come. Get off your butts and give him a hand. He's got a long road to travel after Bush's downfalls. Be happy and proud to be an American. I lived in the U.S. for 39 years and I was thrilled to watch this on TV and I wished I could have been there to see it all.
If a Republican administration had spent this kind of money on an inauguration in economic times such as these the howls of indignation by the leftists and MSM would be deafening. Capiche?

They did spend that kind of money. Clinton spent 33 million.Bush's inaugurations cost about 40 million each, the second one cost more than the first. Obama's was about 45 million. Every 4 years it gets a little more expensive, like everything else, but they are all roughly the same.

I did not vote for the man but now that he is our commander and chief I feel we should all supposrt him the best we can. Give the man a chance. His family is lovely as were many other first famlies, I'm sure Mrs. Obama and the girls will make us proud. Just pray that he does whatever is best for our country, I for one wouldn't take the job, no matter what you paid me. There are way too many stupid people in the world, you sure can't please everyone. Deal with it people we have him for 4-8 more years. Good luck President Obama and family.

Nope. They made Texas jokes when George is actually from the Northeast. Connecticut if memory serves.
