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.
This is not part of the $200Mn a day price tag either.
shoot, here and damn near every where else this will be old news by tomorrow, nothing done about it
kind of like all the democrats the frauded so many elections, Harry Reid comes to mind,, “ well she conceeded “. does that mean harry didn’t break any laws?
I hope whatever measures needed to keep him safe are done because the prospect of president Biden scares me even more.
Can we just call it Bombay again?
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.
Reminiscent of the Emperor Caligula ordering his legions to attack the ocean in order to show Neptune a thing or two.
What, not the entire naval fleet? That $200million per day just went up a great deal higher.
The Hindus, the oldest enemy of the Muslims.
What is he planning to do. Attack the U.S. after he’s safely bunkered away?
or is he expecting something really terrible to happen here in the US that’s why he is getting out of here and taking 3000 people with him-
I think he is just afraid of some muslim getting whacked by a handful of sikhs. They know one when they hear he is coming!
And they remember
check out #111 and #165
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.
Why take battleships when he’s already taking the old Battle Axe.
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.
FUBO & FAD
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.
Are the Web Bots right that the SHTF?
Now that is funny!!! All that effort to protect his scrawny person, wouldn’t it be funny if the “old battle axe” settled scores by beaning him with a coffeepot and put his lights out.
Has anybody seen a report originating from anywhere other than India?
This pussy hates the Military, but he loves them when they cover his Socialist Butt.
“Goodbye Cruel World” (I’m off to join the circus)
Obama’s gonna be a broken hearted clown...
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?
Why does he need nuclear button?
“I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance” Obama
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.
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.
The cost of which is above and beyond the $200 million a day I am sure.
Is there a nuclear weapon planted in DC that will be detonated while he is safely halfway around the world?
Yep. It sure does. I am going to copy and paste that post at FaceBook.
What a waste of money.
Sword of Damocles ping.
Maybe he will come back with a couple of footlockers full of sea shells for the treasury!
the prospect of President Biden doesn’t scare me at all.
He’s an idiot but he’s a real idiot and an American.
But the prospect of a martyred Obama scares me to death.
Really, what is the point of this wasteful tripe!
He is a paranoid narcissist with delusions of grandeur. He has absolutely no concern for the taxpayer who is funding his grandiose junkets. God help us.
Last time a foreign military contingent that large went to India, it was the British.
Why does he need nuclear button?
He’s going to hand it over to the Pohk-ee-stahn-ees?
No way is this connected to the Obama World Tour........
Exactly what is the point of this trip anyway?
