OBAMA 'TAKING 34 WARSHIPS TO INDIA' (Drudge)
NDTV ^

Posted on 11/04/2010 1:54:54 PM PDT by Hojczyk

New Delhi: The White House will, of course, stay in Washington but the heart of the famous building will move to India when President Barack Obama lands in Mumbai on Saturday.

Communications set-up and nuclear button and majority of the White House staff will be in India accompanying the President on this three-day visit that will cover Mumbai and Delhi.

He will also be protected by a fleet of 34 warships, including an aircraft carrier, which will patrol the sea lanes off the Mumbai coast during his two-day stay there beginning Saturday. The measure has been taken as Mumbai attack in 2008 took place from the sea.

Sounds almost as if he intends to fire off come weapons ... I just hope the targets are not in India or the USA.

Dear Lord, Dear Lord.

This ridiculous trip just a few days after an election that was meant to show him how out of touch he is with us fools the citizens?

I am, for the first time in a long time, just speechless.

I hope whatever measures needed to keep him safe are done because the prospect of president Biden scares me even more.

What an ego. Narcism on display for the whole world to see, and despise.

Consider, if he is in such danger that he needs 34 Warships - why is he exposing himself to this danger? There is no reason to place the Office of the President to a risk, that justifies 34 Battleships.

If he’s wanting yet another taxpayer financed vacation - $2 Billion of our taxpayer dollars should be an impeachable offense. And this sounds like nothing more than “I wanna go see the Festival of Lights in India - so let’s go and let’s look as important as we can”.

The Presidency is all about Jughead, and his ego is just getting bigger.

A show of power maybe? I heard one time that the best thing a powerful country could do is not to show it’s power. It should be evident.

Maybe he’s going to give India our ships.

Actually he is escaping to India to get away from Impeachment. He is going to sell the Warships, Air Force One, and the Choppers to add to his stash and seek asylum.

Biden’s not that bad. He never would have pushed the healthcare disaster for one. Obama overruled his objections on that one. Biden = Hillary I’d rather have hi as President then this incompetent egomaniac.

I believe this is more naval support than the Marines had on Tarawa or Peleliu. Oh well, maybe we’ll get some good footage of him storming the beaches in some joint Indian-US exercise.

"Sounds almost as if he intends to fire off come weapons ... I just hope the targets are not in India or the USA."

That was my first thought...an attack force.

Second thought is that he wanted more American targets in the area to reduce his own chances of being one.

"the heart of the White House"--gag me. < choking sounds >

Everyone's wondering who's going to be attacked with these warships--what I'm wondering is--WHERE ARE THESE SHIPS SUPPOSED TO BE WHEN NOT BEING PART OF THE PRESIDENT'S ENTOURAGE???

Who/what is NOT being protected by this foolishness??

Well, just to make you feel better about it, the Pentagon says the idea of 34 ships being diverted for this visit is absurd. A carrier force is ‘only’ 10-12 ships and the WH says the $200mm/day figure is vastly overstated ,perhaps by 5x, which would mean it’s only 40mm/day. Feeling better yet?

President Obama is spending two billion dollars on a ten day trip to India to bring an entourage of thousands protected by the US Navy’s entire 7th Fleet just to visit a museum dedicated to peace.

If that doesn’t perfectly capture what this man is all about, nothing does.

Sounds like he is planning on setting up a presidency in exile.

Maybe he knows something about a huge event that will happen in Washington while he is in India. Nuclear weapon anyone?

I’ll take Biden any day.

He and his wife visit servicepeople and don’t turn the visits into photo ops. That indicates compassion and a love of country that the trashy Os will never have.

He's giving us the finger.

It's as simple as that.

He's going to go out kamikaze-style. The Dems got more than they bargained for. Next time they might do some background research on whoever they put up for president.
