The Obama Coronation
Just four years ago the inauguration of George W. Bush cost in the neighborhood of 40 to 50 million dollars. The left seized upon this opportunity to bombard the airwaves with relentless attacks and high-pitched whining. Democrats questioned how it looked to promote such extravagance during a time of war, especially when the money could be better-used providing healthcare for children or paying down the national debt. They clamored the money should be spent for aids in Africa or to ease the suffering in Darfur.
Now that the leftist standard-bearer Barack Hussein Obama is about to be inaugurated, all these good intentions seem no longer relevant. With 150+ million dollars flowing like water, why are we hearing only whimpers of euphoria? Where’s the Democrat outrage or Republican outrage for that matter? Where are the humanitarian cries, “for the children” from the usual suspects? No, we only see the political hypocrisy in motion from Obama-worshipers as they celebrate no matter the cost.
Isn’t it amazing how perceptions can change in just fours years? If only this were true, but the reality is that perceptions haven’t changed it’s just we are witnessing the true colors of the Democrat Party.
This inauguration is truly a historical moment that many will celebrate through the spectrum of color or race. Others will recognize it as the defining moment when capitalism succumbs to socialism. A moment when government becomes the slave owners and the people become the slaves working for their political masters.
Quite Ironic since Obama claims to pattern himself after Lincoln.
