No party like a Bush party!
You know, I remember in the year 2001 how Bush's first inauguration party was like. I wasn't actually there or anything, i saw it on TV like the majority of people did. The president was met with demonstrations and had his car pelted with eggs and other kinds of food by angry liberals who claim that he stole the election. In essence, the haters ruined Bush's first inauguration day for him and they claimed they had just cause because "the election was stolen". So you know, I guess with Bush's clear victory this time and his re-election, he should have every right to feel vindicated in having one hell of an inauguration party, since his last one was ruined for him. I guess I would also expect- as common decency would dictate- that Blue-staters would just let him enjoy his victory with his supporters this time. But no, we can't possibly have that now, can we? In this special report by the guardian, which by the way calls the $ 40 million inauguration "an unashamed celebration of Red America's victory over Blue America in last November's election", they provide details of the different kinds of parties and festivities that will take place this year to celebrate this occasion. Ohh, and it makes sure to include the objections of the whiney liberals who want to ruin this man's second party: The fighting in Iraq has provoked calls for the celebrations to be toned down, as they were during the two world wars when some were even cancelled. Bush's second inauguration will be the first in wartime since President Richard Nixon took office in 1969 during the Vietnam conflict. That angers many anti-war protesters who say the lavish celebration is inappropriate during conflict. A huge series of demonstrations is now being planned which organizers say will be much larger than the ones that marked Bush's first inauguration after the contested Florida recount in 2000. 'We want our voices to be heard,' said a spokesman for the Answer Coalition, which is co-ordinating the protests. The A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition , which stands for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, is actually a front for a group of socialists and communist groups. You can click here to see some of the things they demanded and planned, like them planning a million workers march, and demanding that housing and a job at a "living wage" to be a right to every citizen. And they are the ones co-ordinating the protests and wanting their voices to be heard! Interesting. No? What's even more interesting is the fact that Bush's team for financing the inauguration has raised $18 million in private donations, putting it nearly halfway to its goal of at least $40 million as the NYTimes reports here. The people who are providing the money are hardworking Americans, Bush supporters and corporations. Damn those self-sufficient evil capitalist Americans! The liberals will say that it still doesn't matter, and that having this extravagant party when the troops don't have armor in Iraq is just obscene. And for them I only have one question: Would you be raising those same objections, if Kerry had won the election? I mean, can you even imagine how big of a party the democrats would have thrown? Yeah, I rest my case!
