LET THEM EAT ARUGULA!

Posted by ginnypub on January 19, 2009

The community represents “so many people who have been forgotten,” Obama said. “Washington hasn’t been listening to you and hasn’t been paying attention to you.” BRISTOL, Va

“If you give me that opportunity, if you give me that chance, I will fight for you every single day,‘’ he pledged. “I’ll wake up every day in that White House thinking about those people in Martinsville.‘’

“I’m not saying that every job is going to come back to Martinsville just because I’m elected president,” Obama said in a town hall-style meeting at Patrick Henry Community College’s Virginia Motorsports Technology Center. “I’m not saying that suddenly all of the schools are going to be fixed. But what I can do is I can say that I’m going to wake up every day thinking about you and thinking about how to make your life a little bit better.”

The price tag for President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration gala is expected to break records, with some estimates reaching as high as $150 million. Despite the bleak economy, however, Democrats who called on President George W. Bush to be frugal four years ago are issuing no such demands now that an inaugural weekend of rock concerts and star-studded parties has begun.

In 2005, Reps. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., and Jim McDermott, D-Wash., asked Bush to show a little less pomp and be a little more circumspect at his party.

“President Roosevelt held his 1945 inaugural at the White House, making a short speech and serving guests cold chicken salad and plain pound cake,” the two lawmakers wrote in a letter. “During World War I, President Wilson did not have any parties at his 1917 inaugural, saying that such festivities would be undignified.”

The thinking was that, with the nation at war, excessive celebration was inappropriate. Four years later, the nation is still at war. Unemployment has risen sharply. And Obama pressed Congress to release the second half of a $700 billion bailout package in hopes of rescuing a faltering banking industry.

Obama’s inauguration committee says it is mindful of the times and is not worried people will see the four days of festivities as excessive.

“That is probably not the way the country is going to be looking at it,” said committee spokeswoman Linda Douglass. “It is not a celebration of an election. It is a celebration of our common values.”

Douglass said the campaign sought to keep costs down by having the same decorations at each of the 10 balls, eliminating floral arrangements and negotiating prices on food.

Parrr-tay!! Whoo Hoo!!

Mr. President, remember us? Are you still thinking about us, like you promised?

Huh, whu.., who? Oh, it’s you. Stop trying to crash my celebration of our common values and go back to clinging to your guns and religion, you ignorant hicks! Here, take this plate of arugula with you. That should should tide you over and it was blocking my access to the Baluga caviar.

      It is a shame that Barry has lost so much credibility in such a short time that he’s had to start a Begging for Support Tour.

    How many SCOTUS judges will President Obama be appointin’ ?

    Unfortunately the things that are “all right” with you border on bull$*it.

    Like Pakistan.
    You want us to get out and give Al Queda free reign?
    But Iraq was a good idea in your mind? LOL !!

    Rose’s forum couldn’t keep up witjhthe Martinsville Media Forum, the Original M & HC forum. Too bad you can’t hang with the big dogs like Cato or Solon. Some of your BS on there is so lame it can’t even suck wind.

    • ginnypub said

      You crack me up, John, the way you talk about yourself in the third person.
      Stop pretending like you don’t know the Pakistan post is sarcasm.

      Hanging with the “big dogs”. You and Cato? More like the hangdogs.

    What about BR’s promise that “we’re re-thinking our forum experience and we will be back with a new innovative on-line medium?”

    They inflated their viewership too. They never had 45 people “on line” reading their poop at 5am.

    There was another nut job their now defunct forum named liekudnik that seems to have vanished.

    She tried to be a big time 🙂 “blogger” like you but the hate got in the way.

    • ginnypub said

      Actually, the viewers top out at something like 145. 45 was an average at almost any given time.
      I can’t tell you what happened to the “re-thinking our forum experience”-you don’t have a password.
      I liked “liekudnik”. Anybody calling themself an American Infidel is all right with me.

    Funny, rose’s blog is password read only now and even em’ has dropped her from his blogroll and Gin, you don’t even have it linked.

    Guess after that forum failed and all the Dems won the old gal just gave up.

    • ginnypub said

      The forum didn’t fail. It crashed at the height of its popularity.

      You got me, I really am BR. Don’t tell anyone.
      (I’ve always wanted to be 10 yr younger, smart, pretty and sassy.)

    Bottoms . . ?
    You do know jack about asses, thats for sure!

    So much hate.
    Do you have enough to last eight years?

    Retreat to Faux News and Limpbaugh . . . while they still are on the air!

    Thank you for the nice compliment, John, but Badrose still has her blog. She just hasn’t been blogging much lately, because unlike me, she actually has a life-kids, real estate, volunteering, PTA, politics….
    The way to tell our blogs apart is that she’s a lot smarter and wittier. She can still be found at http://www.badroseblog.com/

    (BTW, Bottoms is another stroke of genius on your part!)
