Scalpers Rain On Obama's Parade

1/10/2009 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barack ObamaThere was a time you could score some tickets to Obama's Inaugural parade for just $25-a-pop -- but that was before the scalpers descended.

Loads of the 5,000 available bleacher seat tickets are being re-sold for ten times their $25 dollar ticket price. Some scalpers have even reported pulling in $600 per ticket.

Obama's camp is against the scalping -- but unfortunately the practice is legal.

Here's a thought on the DTV conversion:

For the ding dongs who still aren't aware it's all going down, have all the networks and stations shut down for an hour during prime time for each time period. I GUARANTEE all of the American TV public will take notice and comply...

Of COURSE the economic crisis is a myth. How do you think 'Brotha 'Bama raised a record breaking BILLION bucks for his campaign during the worse economy since the Depression?

We're so screwed. This megla-maniac wants to put the man down. How he got elected is beyond me. But all the Bamster fans - let's here from you in a couple of years. You'll be singing a different tune.

And as for the celebs that proudly back him - I won't spend another dollar on anything they are involved in from here forward.

Just a bunch of jug-heads with money.

Don't worry about the celebs, Beachy. They're still stewed after Bam Bam screwed them over the whole Prop 8 crap.

Yeah #26,

Isn't it funny that the lame stream media didn't point out the fact that the black vote was responsible for Prop 8's "failure".

Our only hope is that when he discovers the "real deal", he will have to do what's right instead of pushing his socialistic propaganda upon the people. Hell, even the military is wary of this guy - and he's their Commander in Chief.

He's already knee-deep in controversy and he hasn't even taken office yet. This Blago thing could bust it WIDE open. Certainly, his shady past wasn't reported by the lame stream media, but maybe, he'll be outed by this. I'm sure he is quaking in his Spatz.

I've never agreed with Slick Willy about anything - except for his statement the Bamster came from the Chicago Thug Machine. He's an insider - he knows the deal.

Bamster is a total fraud. I wonder how the people that voted for this commie will feel in a couple of years.

Gun sales are at an all-time high - the thinking this thug will take away our 2nd Amendment. Very possible.

I have never heard of a mother in law living at the White House. Obamas have no class. Now I have to pay for the old bats food, bodyguards, clothing and shelter, events and health care for the rest of her life. Bush didn't have everyone and the grandmother move into the White House. Obamas have no class and never will.

One more thought, Beachy. Let's not forget his "Change, Change, Change". All the while he reassebles the Clinton Administration...Typical politician, and Bammer's the worst of 'em...
