Default I Appreciate

I appreciate Obama and how he is going to spend a reported 50 million dollars on his inauguration. This is going to be the biggest, trendiest, giant production ever seen at a presidential inauguration. All this at a time when the economy is on the brink of a shit hole. Thanks for looking out for what is important Mr. Obama, can't wait to see what else you waste money on......

Now it's time for all your thoughts, have fun!

Oh, and I leave for my first snowboarding trip Friday morning. I'm going to Keystone and I'm so friggin' stoked!

facists didn't give you enuff free booze? irrespective of how you get there, being stupefied into inactivity, even by awaiting an up turn which is never to be realised, is all the same net result.

'change' my arse.

I appreciate how Obama is already making excuses for failing on his electorial pledges; such as how Gitmo will not be closed any time soon....

to me, change would encompass a viable explanation. what was offered however: "It is more difficult than I think a lot of people realize."

also little to no chance of any Bush administration officials being charged for the torture commissioned at such camps nor any war crimes perpetrated in recent conflicts.

by all accounts.... pathetic

don't hate my realism.

i think the UK is currently being coerced into joining the single EU currency. I suspect it is thought that Sterling is held in as much esteem by Brits as the dollar is by americans.

Parity with the will help Brown et al manufacture the idea that losing the is a tip top idea.

and so the globe will take another step towards becoming a tripolar market, thus furthering the Amero's cause....

we are on the threshold of the 'mega-nation'. nothing Obama can influence really.

doubt me? consider the reaction to Bush & Co. having such a lavish inauguration as described by the OP.

Paolo... I think by "my realism", you actually mean "my pecimism". I'm pretty sure, now matter how rainbow filled, glittery a candy land could be, you'd be able to find that one piece of shit candy, and twist it in to some sort of scenario in which candy land will soon become the land of lima beans.

Oh and KH817, if you're gonna make a post and rant about something political as if you know what you're talking about, check your facts. 50 million for a party paid for by private donations has nothing to do with his spending spree of the American tax payer. And think just for a minute before you get an opinion stuck in your head. Use some kind of intellect. This innauguration is going to be HUGE. They have had hotels sold out for months. There will be thousands of people trying to attend this thing. With such a massive turnout and interest, I would think that it deserves something a little bit more than just the run of the mill inauguration. Not just the cool and exciting stuff, but the shear amount of security, bathrooms, staff, and other event functions that will be on a bigger scale that the usual will cost a lot.

as if lima beans weren't something to be celebrated?
as if to suggest candy which tastes of shit ought to be tolerated?

i just find it strange that Palin should have been condemned for her expensive wardrobe, when trying to win a battle....

and yet Obama is permitted to piss even more money up the wall despite these cash strapped times, to celebrate once the battle is done.

is there a more obvious double standard?
or better example of 'style' obscuring objective analysis?

like i said, if Bush was yelling "party hearty" y'all would be having seizures right now!

at the risk of repeating the MPD mantra from the days of TOS.... if only you knew how ironic this statement to be.

if what i say is unreasonable, then please tell me. but i fail to see the pessimism, in seeing a newly elected official, 'larging it' in a nation where house repossession is rife, whilst claiming to want 'change'.

i thought the UK had the population divided by class and wealth... and that the US division was along lines of race? by this token, Obama is getting whiter by the day if whats suggested in this thread is true!

my glass is fuller than most... which perhaps allows me not to be so unduly distracted by my own personal crises, that i fail to notice even the untouchable Obama being guilty of acting inappropriately.

just saying is all..... what do i care? i was never gonna get a free drink / health care / education / 'change' out of the guy anyway!

Paolo, your view on this is skewed based on where you live. You are assuming that it's a double standard because the NEWS made a bit deal out of Palin's wardrobe, and maybe a few people on forums. And yes, that wasn't tax payer money that Palin was using, it was campaign money. But living in the states, talking face to face with US citizen that have the right to vote (and did) in a US election, Palin's wardrobe was NOT the deciding factor that made them vote one way or the other. So this, again, is a media thing, in which those not living in the trenches, have a different view. And because you're a typically a pecimist, you look at it with a slight negative twist. Rather than looking at it from the perspective that Obama is puttin on the show that the PEOPLE want. Have you read about the turnout this inaugaration is predicted to have. It's going to be HUGE. It's not going to be huge because of the party Obama is putting on. Their putting on a huge party because of the turnout.

But hell, life's too short to have positive thinking get in the way.

Oh, and I can honestly say, the majority of Americans would be really, REALLY pissed off if Bush was throwing a HUGE party. Because that would mean he somehow got elected to a 3rd term, which NOBODY wanted. And McCain can't party too late, dinner is at 4, and bedtime is 7:30. So what kind of lame party would that be.
