    Not surprising since he's the most Wall Street friendly POTUS ever elected.

    Wall Street friendly? LOL, not even close. He's Wall Street owned. He's their boy.

    Lots of things go out the window when you're not running again (or so it seems).

    Edit: At least it's not taxpayer money.

    Well, I guess he could do the inaguration like Jimmy Carter but then the country would laugh at him for being a backward hick.

    There's no winning with haters.

    I do beleive this whole corporate love fest has gotten way out of control, but we get no push back since all of the MSM entertainment news organizations are corporate whores.

    Awesome

    The Messiah deserves the best Inauguration of all time.

    Great times rubbing it in the faces of the America hating Republicans especially the ones in here. :thumbsup:

    Taking money from the very folks that spent billions of $$$ to get him out of office but now they find they have to suck up to Obama with donations to keep their corporate welfare wagon rolling?

    Sweet justice in my opinion.

    And now we have the very folks who branded Obama as an anti-business communist now saying he's actually owned by the businesses Obama was supposed to be against?

    It just can't get more hilarious than this. It just can't. lol

    It's good to see that Michelle isn't the only whore in the White House.

    Remember, he did say that he would be more 'flexible' after the election.

    He was wrong on this one. Where do you go from there? On the list of broken promises not concerned about this one.

    Frankly I think there shouldn't be an inauguration when POTUS is re-elected.

    I'm sure they wouldn't have done the same if Romney had won.

    Isn't this a good thing? Obama's going to spend what he wants to spend, and if it didn't come out of the corporate slush funds we'd have to pay the tab. Plus, those slush funds would be doing other things for him anyway. Politicians are the best investment a huge corporation can make; they've bought Obama, and while they might not be able to buy Romney he's in agreement with pretty much what they want anyway. And where he isn't, they'd just buy the support of the Senators and Representatives he would need to get anything done.

    The only real difference I see here is that the media would be doing its best to shame President Romney into not taking corporate donations, so a President Romney gala would be funded by the same people just with after-tax dollars. For me, I'm just glad the Messiah didn't need to find a way to add it to the national debt. Count this as a small blessing rather than hypocrisy.
