I'm almost betting that Obama cancels his trip because he is a coward. He will blame it on the volcano in Indonesia.

I'll bet he wants to be in Chicago with his buddies right now....like really, really, bad.

Can you say "puppet".

OK, so it flew all the way to Mumbai only to land in ‘emergency condition’ because of an unidentified object in the cargo hold.

hmmm.

Ya don’t inspect the cargo hold once you are in the air.

This article is odd at best.

My thought exactly. How do you discover an unidentified object in the cargo hold at the end of the flight?

Perhaps it was parts of the bomb proof ‘tunnel’ being constructed for our potentate’s arrival. Unfreakenbelievable. This man won’t even go visit our troops in Iraq or Afghanistan..yet he is spending A BILLION DOLLARS of our money to visit India and see The Festival Of Lights!

If it’s in a plane, I guess it still qualifies as a UFO.

Do you suppose it could be the light at the end of the tunnel?

Perhaps they were 80% of the way there when someone in Amsterdam re-checked the manifest and realized that they had all but ONE piece of checked luggage matched to butts in seats.

Or perhaps some of the chickens or goats got loose ;-)

I'm still pondering over the fact that his two girls were originally not going on the trip, but now, all of a sudden, they are. They and a small “city” of “others”, including 34 war ships.

There's just something too strange about this whole thing.

Officials became concerned after a Delta staffer at the airport in Amsterdam alerted them to the presence of the unidentified package.

Perhaps it would have been good to have this information prior to the plane to leaving the gate? Just saying...

After reading your comment - I reached for my tinfoil burka.

A pre-emptive bunker hunker ya’ suppose?

And what’s with the navy flotilla of 40 ships?

Na, it’s not odd at all. And neither is it odd that our president and his family and 3000 people, 40 planes, 34 war ships, no coconut trees aloud, and a kilometer tunnel built for ohaha, from the Taj to the Gahndi Museum. s/

Maybe that’s what Delta did with my suitcase.

Terrific, wait until they find out it belongs to a Tea Party conservative.

Yes.

And what’s with the navy flotilla of 40 ships?

1. He's a coward.
2. He may think he can pull off a government in absentia.

Whose arse is about to be whupped?

Ours. (Most likely at least Washington DC/Capitol Building during a Lame Duck session)

When?

7/11 (Slurpee)

Why?

We're kafir.

Declaring an “emergency” allows a gov’t to take extraordinary measures. Contrived “crisis” and all... Anyone notice a pattern?

Dittos! Like I said on another post...it makes one wonder if he isn’t taking his shadow government and favorite crony capitalists in order to form his new marxist government here after the ‘man caused disaster’ goes off in the USA while he is away. Half joking...but only half. I don’t trust the man and never will. There is something profoundly wrong with him and it’s becoming obvious to more and more people with each passing day.

Agreed. But we have to remember that this is just some reporter's version of what somebody told them, which they interpret in a vacuum of actual knowledge of any subject matter. On literally any story, the truth is almost always different from how it was reported. Sometimes in trivial ways, and sometimes in critical ways.

Here, I'm guessing that something was discovered in the paperwork about some cargo, after the plane was airborne, by somebody that thinks there's something suspicious about it.

Huh? No... A pilot declaring an emergency just gives him priority for landing and scrambles out all those neat trucks with pretty lights on top. That's about all.

Cool, Diwali looks like fun. I wish I could take a taxpayer funded billion dollar trip to see it. I’d even take a Dreidel just to be all multicultural and stuff.

Someone needs to ask Obama how many people in the US could get health care,food or shelter for a year for 2 billion dollars?

Of course..if this were President Bush being so tone deaf and extravagant in the middle of a deep recession, the media would be up in arms and calling for his resignation.No president has ever spent this much money on a foreign trip like this...EVER!!

The Onointed Won has called his opponents “Slurpee sippers” at least a couple dozen times in the past few weeks.

The feeling is that it’s a go code for an attack on 7/11 (which the rest of the world reads as November 7th) as it is a brand name of the 7-Eleven corporation.

Reinforced by the large number of 7-11 owners who happen to be swarthy.

Further reinforced by 7-11’s motto, “Oh Thank Heaven for 7-Eleven” seen as the closest motto to thanking allah.

Silly? Yeah.

True? Unlikely, but who can be certain?
