Why would anyone pay to fly to Washington, D.C., pay $600 a night at a hotel, just to see President Obama inaugurated? A staggering 1.8 million people did in 2009.
That was then. This is now. The crowd will be smaller this time.
There are better deals available at smaller hotels and motels.
Still, I won’t be there. If you attend, post a video on YouTube. Tell us why it was worth the money to stand in the cold to see him at a great distance.
I don’t understand the motivation. If I wanted to see him get sworn in, I would watch it on cable TV. I suppose some network will broadcast it. Or I could watch it on YouTube later in the day. I would be warm. I would not have to fly to Washington.
People still believe in political salvation. They still believe that they will be watching an historic event. They still believe in deliverance by the President. I don’t understand why.
I hope he has his teleprompter in good working order. Otherwise. . . .
