Count me as one that resents the cost. No, not because it was Bush.. I think I woke up to the fact that it's a stupid waste of money about the time Lyndon Johnson took his oath. Haven't changed my mind since.
Once upon a time, it was a novelty to see this excessive display, but no more. To me, it'd be far more prudent for the new Prez, regardless of party, to take the oath in the Oval Office, with a number of officials and family in attendance. The networks could film it and show it as a special or on the news. Who cares about the balls, where the prez & 1st lady spend a maximum of 10 minutes waving and dancing a few steps? Waste of money and time.. I'd much rather the millions would've been left in the coffers or given to charity. Know my opinion's not popular, but that's just the way it is.
