POLL - Is Obama's $150M Coronation Excessive? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

In a time of global recession and job loss Obama is planning a $150,000,000 party, including more than 40,000 security personnell. Does anybody other than me think that's ridiculous?

I remember the press making a big deal of Bush's $40M inauguration.

The same ones now dismiss this event as historic. Let's see what qualifies as historic: A 1/2-black man raised by White folks got elected president, running against an old White guy RINO whom most people did not like. That's historic alright, but not for what it is being pitched as.

What do you think?

I think the given answers are quite tendentious and biased

> including more than 40,000 security personnell.
The millions visitors have had come anyway, so it's better to be prepared.

I am not surprised about the costs for the party, but about the costs during your election campaigns and I really don't want to know how much money was spent.
