Costly inauguration OK for Dems, but not GOP

-A +A
In your Auburn Journal dated Friday, Jan. 16, there was a letter written by Chuck Mortensen from Colfax, “Where’s the outrage over $150 million inauguration?” Boy, he hit this subject on the nose. Those Bush bashers — Ron Lowe, Chris Hamm and Jack Sanchez — complained about Bush’s $40 million inauguration as way too much money spent. But have you noticed they have nothing to say about the Democrats spending $150 million on the Obama inauguration. That’s about four times more than Bush’s inauguration. But I guess it’s OK for the Democrats to spend all that money and not OK for the Republicans to spend $40 million. What hypocrites that live among us. As you noticed they are very silent over this issue. Frank Wilson Auburn
