2. EVEN if it DOESN'T cost more, let's say the same amount is spent, where is the frugal calls from the dems? When we are in a war with a worse economy, why should actions that were considered unfrugal 4 years ago now be ok?

It is STILL called hypocrisy. Try to justify it all you want. it won't go away.

just showing the cost, the costs were the same. What the original post was about.

No, it was not. The original post was, is, and will continue to be about the hypocrisy of the left. Even IF the costs are the same, the left is just as hypocritical. Why? They made a HUGE stick bout the cost of Bush's inauguration, going on and on and on and on and on ad nauseum about what how wasteful it all was (during a relatively strong economy) and what do they do when their candidate is elected? Do the SAME EXACT THING. That, my friend, is the very definition of hypocrisy.

Sorry Rev, but it's very different. Bush did it during a relatively strong economy...whereas Obama pulled it off during a declining economy. It's a worse form of hypocrisy.
