The Media was all over GWBush and GOP for their expensive inaugurations --and then Obama spent 3 times as much --and that's OK.
You know, if you stayed home, you actually saw the inauguration --in comfort. NOthing could make me want to be packed like sardines with 2 million people in 18? degree weather. I was impressed that the violin/cello, ensemble number was played so beautifully outdoors --seemingly in jackets, not coats. Did they use video screens throughout the crowd, I wonder? Good news --no arrests. I hear there were boos for Bush but I did not hear them on TV. Democrats are so rude.
Someone wrote a piece in National Review, I think, on the "hissing" that democrats do in crowds and how republicans don't. I did boo Al Gore when he came, come to think of it --when he spoke of women's right to abort. Shame on me. I was younger and my booing was to make a statement that I thought was necessary in a pro-democrat crowd of 5000 down at Portside. It was the first Clinton-Gore campaign, i believe.
That's where I first saw young girls chanting at us pro-lifers with our posters, angrily, snarling, something about the church keeping its hands off their ovaries. It was a rhyming ditty. We were there to defend the unborn and remind the audience that the Clinton-Gore ticket favored abortion --as did Obama's, though one democrat caller seemed ignorant of the fact. Democrats tend to vote their Union's wishes, instead of their Church's.
