What A Difference Being A Liberal Makes

Barack Obama is getting ready to take a train ride through Delaware and Maryland on his way to DC for his coronation. He will pick up Gaffe-O-Matic VP Elect Joe Biden in his home state and make a stop in Baltimore. Obama and Biden will spend an hour at The War Memorial in an area designed to hold 30,000. The police expect 100,000. It is expected to be bitter cold and people will start being screened around 1100 (11 am) for the 1700 (5 pm) visit. The cost to the state of Maryland; around 11 million dollars.

The state had about a 1.5 billion dollar deficit last year and the Democrats raised taxes. Now we have a 2 billion dollar deficit and the state is spending 11 million for an hour visit from Obama. This is all taking place while the Governor reveals that he will be laying off state employees because he is incompetent and cannot run a state or a budget (yes you O’Malley you lop eared, beady eyed, liberal moron).

Keeping in mind we are on our way to a depression and that the Democrats who caused this mess (with the assistance of a lot of Republicans) are now completely in charge; how do you suppose they will act during the inauguration?

Why, spend, spend, spend, of course. The total event in DC will cost upwards of 70 million dollars and in addition to the millions it will cost Maryland, Virginia and other nearby states will bear the burden of costs related to the event as well.

A lot of the money is provided by donors of the sort that Obama swore would not be involved in the process but that is for another day. Regardless of how much he has raised for the shindig, there will be a lot of money spent on the event. I imagine that when all the nearby states are included, the cost to set up and to clean up as well as the additional security, the total will be near 100 million dollars.

One would imagine that the media and the liberals around the country would be up in arms about the expense especially when we are in the midst of economic collapse but they are on board. They want to attend the balls and the parties and be involved in this “historic” event. As Laurie Kellman of the AP relayed:

So you’re attending an inaugural ball saluting the historic election of Barack Obama in the worst economic climate in three generations. Can you get away with glitzing it up and still be appropriate, not to mention comfortable and financially viable?

To quote the man of the hour: Yes, you can. Veteran ballgoers say you should. And fashionistas insist that you must.

“This is a time to celebrate. This is a great moment. Do not dress down. Do not wear the Washington uniform,” said Tim Gunn, a native Washingtonian and Chief Creative Officer at Liz Claiborne, Inc.

“Just because the economy is in a downturn, it doesn’t mean that style is going to be in a downturn,” agreed Ken Downing, fashion director for Neiman Marcus.

And if anyone does raise an eyebrow at those sequins, remind them that optimism is good for times like these. “Just say you’re doing it to help the economy,” chuckled good manners guru Letitia Baldridge

In the past the AP has stated that the inauguration was to extravagant and that it needed to be scaled down. Yes, we could buy food for the poor and health care for those who need it with all that money. Then again, this complaint was lodged when George Bush was the one taking the oath of office. Then, the AP complained about the cost and the extra security and how bad it was:

President Bush’s second inauguration will cost tens of millions of dollars — $40 million alone in private donations for the balls, parade and other invitation-only parties. With that kind of money, what could you buy?

■ 200 armored Humvees with the best armor for troops in Iraq.

■ Vaccinations and preventive health care for 22 million children in regions devastated by the tsunami.

■ A down payment on the nation’s deficit, which hit a record-breaking $412 billion last year….

The questions have come from Bush supporters and opponents: Do we need to spend this money on what seems so extravagant?

New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, a Democrat, suggested inaugural parties should be scaled back, citing as a precedent Roosevelt’s inauguration during World War II. Newsbusters (first quote from this article as well)

This is what I have said about the left all along. If they are doing it then it is OK but if a Republican is doing it then the tribunals must start. Look at all the corruption that has been displayed by the left in the last 6 months or so. Tax evasion, corruption, bribes, pay to play, sweetheart deals for spouses and any number of other things but not one word on THEIR culture of corruption. Let a Republican fart and there are calls for resignation. William Jefferson was caught taking 90 THOUSAND DOLLARS in bribe money and the only way he was removed from the House was by the voters rejection of him. Nancy Pelosi did nothing. If you notice, it only seems to be the corrupt Republicans being tried and convicted.

But, back to Curious Barack and his inauguration. The articles cited demonstrate clearly what the MSM openly displayed during the last campaign and that is, they are the media wing of the Democratic party. They see the same things different ways depending upon the party of the person involved and they are so squarely in Obama’s gluteal region that they can see the bottom of his heart.

I hope the MSM enjoys the balls and the parties because this is probably the last joy they will have. Major newspapers are on the verge of collapsing and newsrooms are getting smaller. I say goodbye and good riddance. The only thing that would be better would be if Keith Olberdouche lost his job and I got to punch him in the mouth on his way out the door.

I can’t totally blame the liberals though. George Bush has become the facilitator in chief for these ass clowns by declaring a state of emergency in DC for the event. This means that unlimited taxpayer dollars will be available for the event. Yes, we will be forced to pay for this because President Bush decided to open the federal wallet. Can you imagine how Democrats would have reacted if he had done this for his own inauguration thus ensuring federal tax dollars to fund it? I can’t blame him for declaring the emergency though.

Obama is going to be the president and that means a state of emergency will exist for the entire country.

God help us.

Be sure to buy guns and ammo.
