    Note: The biggest difference in costs seems to stem from the difference in crowd size. Bush's first inauguration attracted less than 1/2 million people and his second attracted about 300,000. Today's event are expected to draw over 2 million.
    Out of 2 million ,only a dozen folks actually missed work . Looking for the silver lining and sadly LMAO ,regards

    That ain't going to happen and even though in all 3 debates Obomo promised no more pork, his new bill has over 500 billion worth of pork/earmarks!

    Media bias? Why isn't the media except for Fox News calling him out on his lies?

    Here is one for you all, a left wing talk show host front and center at a presidential news conference.

    I expect we will get a real one sided view from this administration.

    And he showed his bias by calling on him to ask a softball question, right?

    Oh, he didn't? Ah, snap!

    Are you upset that they didn't bring in your favorite fake reporter/gay porn star, Jeff Gannon, to ask the hard hitting questions?

    I assume this was the question asked about "how can all the spending be gauged if it is actually working? "

    Reply something to lines on the creation or saving 4 million jobs.

    Well I guess as long as 4 million folks still have jobs its a success. As long as you say it real fast you don't even hear the "saving" part and it sounds good.

    I wish I remember the question asked and his reply was wait for the treasury secretaries press conference and then the most important quest asked was about A-rod.
    That's some "hardball" questions pun intended

    However in none of the estimates has there been any mention of the cost of giving all those federal workers a holiday for the coronation, either. That alone had to add considerably to the cost of the BHO festivities. Not to mention the filth that had to be cleaned up; haven't seen that estimate anywhere.
    Actually estimates of the cost of both Bush and Obama inaugurations include costs for Federal government employee holidays (it was done for both) and post inaugural cleanup. I suspect that the 300,000 people attending Bush's inaugural in 2005 made less of a mess than the 1.8 million attending Obama's in 2009.

    Is the reason this newspaper is on the verge of failure because of left wing bias, essentially only serving half the population, or is it a matter of the full array of information choices (internet, podcast, radio, newspapers, television, etc.) that the consumer has available?

    What do you think?

    chuckling This one was too rich:

    We routinely hear CNN referred to as the communist news network. It appears in some cases it is actually true.

    In an interview in the Limbaugh Letter with Bernard Goldberg, 28 years at CBS prior to writing Bias. Mr Goldberg states "the media has gone beyond being biased, they are idealogically on the same page with socialism". Which is laughable as you watch the print newsies fold. One of our local rags, arguably the most liberal in the state, is printing it's last edition this week. Not much of a content loss, except for the coffee slurping text messagers who don't have a clue where tax money originates. My fondest hope is that all the lefties retirement plans are loaded with the stock of these failed business models.

    BTW, if you don't take the LL you should.

    A TV anchor (Brian Williams) bowing to obama...

    I guess the media has gone from bias to I don't know what. Is it adulation? Is it a king-subject relationship?

    It is pretty amazing when one thinks about it.
