It is wrong for the administration to live as it did but its OK for Obama to spend almost 3 times as Bush on the inauguration?
Most was spent on security, and the funds were not paid by tax payers. Obama's staff raised the funds themselves.

Personally I believe that Former President Bush did in fact do what he believed was right for the country. In my opinion he is guilty of many things..arrogance, gullibility, prideful ignorance...but not malice. He was easily "used" and manipulated by those around him.

How dare you compare the President of the United States to Hitler. It's Obama that has the Hitler like qualities, if anything. Positioning himself as a messiah. What a farce!

Well that bull# is just plain stupid. Some in your own familly problery voted for him the SECOND TIME MAN.... .... remember that you voted the "Buhhh" in twice.
Let's wait and see if he actually does anything to end the war in Iraq or not. My guess is it will continue on with billions being spent monthly just like they are now.

Because all of that is spent on war that 1) didn't come up with any real evidence linking Sadaam to Al Quida. 2) no weapons of mass destruction was found. So......why spend 800 billion dollars on a anti-terrorism campaign that didn't contain any terrorists?
HE is meeting today to get us out of Iraq asap. So he can take all that money spent on an illegal war and use that to get us out of the financial chaos the recent government put us in. Re-allocating of funds, not a bad idea. But not spending much more money.
