Obama Inauguration, now its happened, still +-4 times that of Bush? It was thought, in an estimation: to be more than ten times that of Bush!

Before it happened, it was estimated that it would cost 5 00 000 000 US$ (Five Hundred million United States of America: Dollars), this probably included the concert and train journey, and use of Lincoln's bible.

Other sources, now are putting it at about 160 000 000 US$ (One hundred and Sixty Million United States of America: Dollars), or so. In fact, this probably excludes these other costs, which we received at the time. The estimate we published, was just that, an estimate, we thought to also show how close estimates were, the estimate, was from an external source, however, it included things, seemingly expensively not included in other estimates. We therefore do not immediately discount it.

This is still about four times that of the Bush inauguration, which was criticized at the time, as extravagant.

And that is the point, we are enjoying to make again.
