Why Does It Have To Cost Over $100 Million To Swear In A President?
political outcast ^ | 12/10/12 | dave jolly

When George W. Bush was sworn in as president, it cost US taxpayers $115.5 million. In January of 2009, it cost us $125 million for Barack Obama’s swearing in. All indications are pointing to a cost of over $100 million for Obama’s second swearing in.

Seeing this kind of waste of taxpayer dollars makes we want to swear in here and there.

The money will be spent on the preparations and decorations along with the gala ball that follows and the multiple DC parties. In the meantime, our country is facing a financial crisis and millions of Americans are losing their homes and unable to feed their kids.

Why does caring for O’s family cost taxpayers 24X as much as caring for the British royal family?

I’ll happily swear at the communist for free; who would charge $100M for that job? I just wish we had a real president to swear in, instead of the usurper.

Just once, I would like to see some leadership from an American President. Some sacrafice, some cutback.

Someone that looked like a NASCAR loving American.

I’m going to be watching the pre game shows for the NFC and AFC conference championship games. They will be far more interesting than anything going on in D.C. that day.

One doesn't have to put as much jelly on an English muffin as one needs to put on the Oval Office pile of crap to make it palatable.

As long as the cost is borne by voluntary donations from individuals in the private sector, not from government agencies or "public service" tax-supported NGOs or unions, I don't care how much it costs.

Otherwise I can ask the same question myself.

Can't you just imagine the above was the scene with Obama and his Commie staff after stealing the election through voter fraud- while Conservatives blame Romney, argue, point fingers, blather on about who to run in four years, 'starting a new party', and try to figure out how to suck up to minorities the 'next time'?

Next time? What makes you think the massive voter fraud in this last farce of an election won't be repeated? If we don't clean up our voting system, there may not be a next time. We may not see another Republican president in our lifetime

Map from Barack Obama Voter Fraud 2012

What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about who to run in 2016 and how to suck up to the minorities.

>Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election.

>The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office.

>Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.

>Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.

>Mitt knew it too, when he was met by several thousand in that parking garage cheering him when he arrived unannounced at that airport, and he put his hand over his heart and said, 'This is how you know you've won'.

So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?

Massive voter fraud.

That and no other reason

Almost every major Conservative website has put out an article charging voter fraud- Breitbart, American Thinker, Atlas Shrugs, WND, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Town Hall, Human Events, Canada Free Press...

We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.

We must act NOW.

Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.

We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....


Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people don’t trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".

Col West has opened the door.

We must fight election fraud.

It falls on ‘We the People’.

Silence is consent


The website,'Barack Obama Vote Fraud 2012' is keeping a running account of cases of voter fraud and what to do about it:

Visit the site- Here



Believe it or not, there ARE patriots out there who are going to FIGHT Obama's reelection- unlike the spineless Republicans who remain silent!

Visit the website; 'The Competent Conservative'


'These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it won’t do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below... '

Visit the website, 'Halt Voter Fraud':


'This election is not over - YET. Obama has not been elected by the Electoral College - YET. The Presidential election is being stolen from us with "Chicago Style" thuggery - and we can STOP the thieves in their tracks. But we do not have time on our side. This is our LAST chance. Don't give up. We must act now.

If massive voter fraud has occured as alleged by so many, and if the state vote counts include these FRAUDULENT votes, then is it logical to say that the entire state vote is COMPROMISED and can't be trusted? 59,000,000 Americans might agree!

The state vote is used to determine the allocation of Electors in the Electoral College which actually elects the President and Vice President.

If the vote count is FRAUDULENT, FLAWED, and CAN'T BE TRUSTED - and if the Electors have been FRAUDULENTLY allocated based on FLAWED vote counts - then WE CANNOT ALLOW THE GOVERNORS TO SIGN THEIR CERTIFICATES of ASCERTAINMENT on December 17th. We can stop this if we ACT IMMEDIATELY.


Patriots must rally NOW in the State Capitols of Harrisburg,PA - Richmond, VA - Tallahassee, FL - Columbus, OH, and Madison, WI ****** MASSIVE RALLIES ** *** PATRIOT LEADERS ORGANIZE YOUR LOCAL EFFORTS NOW, coordinate with the other PATRIOT groups as they also rally, let us know who you are and how you will respond, how we can help.

Remember the Battle of Trenton?

We can make HISTORY TODAY.'

I wouldn’t give $.50 to swear in the Kenya idiot....however, all that money is being spent here and we will get a lot of it back in fact, it will be after the new year and Obama’s asinine tax hike on small business will ensure us of even more tax money!!!!

Was anybody here complaining in 2005 when the same un-American spectacle took place?

This all would make the Founders vomit. The revolution was a waste. We have rulers.

Here is a thought I just put together:
Compare the map of voter fraud you have in your post with the map of Romney’s wins in the Republican primaries.
See any similarity? I have pointed out numerous times that the counties he won in the primaries were ones that Obama won in 2008 (by and large) - but only just considered that they were a practice run...
Look at MI - the pockets that were O in 08 were Rommey in primaries, then O again in the national. Should I believe that the all the voters that those counties are simply liberals, such that even (R)’s can’t vote for a conservative, or should I consider some other factor at play in those districts?

Of course, the correlations between 08 and the primaries are rough, and vary depending upon what time the primary was held. Other factors, such as Mormon population and ABO skew things a bit by the end, and certainly in the general.
But the upper midwest section of the country is interesting when looked at from that perspective.

I’ll do it for five thousand, and in such a way that many good things will happen. Won’t say what those are, but the location, Dry Gulch 78 miles southeast of Flapjack, Utah, might give you some ideas of what those good ideas are. :)

Why??? -- because it doesn't.

That is a gross exaggeration since most of those who will be involved are salaried employees already. So if they weren't at the swearing in ceremony, they would be sitting at their desks with donuts watching the latest video at the same taxpayer expense.
