Update: Hotel rooms still available for low-interest inauguration
The Examiner ^ | January 19, 2013 | 10:44 am | Byron York

A few days ago, I checked with a half-dozen Washington-area hotels, ranging from the luxe Willard Intercontinental to the not-so-luxe Hampton Inn, and found that all had rooms available for this weekend’s Obama inauguration festivities. That was a huge change from Obama’s first inauguration, in January 2009, when nearly all the area’s hotel rooms were sold out.

On Saturday, as Obama supporters arrived for the Monday ceremony, I checked with those hotels again. I asked if they had a room available for arrival on Saturday, staying three nights and departing on Tuesday, January 22. All still have rooms available.

Earlier this week, downtown’s Grand Hyatt had standard guest rooms available for $499 a night. They still do.

When I attended Ronald Reagan’s first inauguration, every DC-area hotel was booked, and I had to stay in Fredericksburg, Va., abut 50 miles away.

The reason Obama is having such a hard time getting people to show up at his inauguration is because dead people do not attend festivities.

Fraudulent Election!

I was listening to a news report about it, and in the background they were playing crowd noises. Trying to gin up enthusiasm, I suppose.

I didn’t think the election was stolen (I knew enough white trash dependents that openly stated they were voting for Obama), but this makes me re-examine the matter.

I am staying away from the news channel all day Monday. I refuse to give this man one bit of interest. In fact, I think it would be a great time to visit old friends who need visiting!

On Monday, I will go directly to movie channels or Discovery or History channel, but not to any news channel. I refuse to see that POS sworn in and the money wasted to do that.

Plus, he will be already sworn in on Sunday (tomorrow) in private and I would bet anything he uses the Koran. On Monday for the public, he will use Lincoln's Bible and Martin Luther King's Bible. His devil hand will probably burn when it touches either Bible.

My brother and his uber-liberal son are going down to the inauguration.

Few things have pained me as much recently as hearing that my brother was an Obama supporter. His son has a learning disability that inhibits his ability to read, so he gets all of his world-views from television. He isn’t old enough to vote. Yet. I am having difficulty compartmentalizing the politics here.

Several years ago, I heard my mid-teen nephew say aloud at a holiday get together how much he hated the American flag, since it was a symbol of racism and oppression.

I admit that I was stunned speechless. His grandfather served that flag and was buried under it at Arlington. I remember thinking what my dad would have thought had he ever heard that comment.

It bothered me that I was stunned speechless, but maybe that may have been for the best, as I was a guest in my brother’s house.

Sigh. Still can’t believe it. I don’t even visit them anymore. I just can’t.

I’ll be at work paying for the deadbeat attendees to attend their poshitus.

BTW, investigated that 3’ deep trench they dug down by Boone.. no artifact strata to be found.

Even Obama’s biggest supporters are broke and can’t attend.

The rest of us don’t want to attend.

The reason is racism. No matter what happens, that’s the reason.

Two young black men, that my son knew, came into the pharmacy today and talked about leaving for the festivities in Washington. They would be attending events tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday, all expenses paid, by the DNC. One young man laughed and said, “We didn’t even vote for Obama this time, because of his stance on gays.”

The Dems will fill the seats.

Are you talking about the trench at the end of Boone in Cody Park? If so, that was dug to keep non POA people from sneaking into the park.

If you need in, send me a FR mail and I'll get you a hang tag and let you into the gate. BTW, the west end where the generator is being used to power the water pump is where my coworker is finding points.
