Congratulations America. You have just experienced another free, open and peaceful election. Thank a soldier!
Yesterday, amid the swirl of midterm election news, it was announced that President Obamas trip to Mumbai, India would cost $200 million per day. His retinue includes 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists, 40 aircraft, and three Marine One choppers that will be disassembled in the US, flown to Mumbai, and reassembled in India to ferry the president and his family and to evacuate them in case of any emergency. Also included is military personnel to ensure his safety.
He has reserved the entire Taj Mahal Hotel. All 570 odd rooms, banquet halls, restaurants, etc. In addition to hundreds of rooms in other 5 star hotels around Mumbai. Obviously no expense will be spared.

It’s GOOD to be the KING.
No kidding, this is completely in your face. I don’t know how it works, but congress should determine the monies the president can spend on crap like travel.
Hey Prez! For that kind of money you could have just flown most of India here to visit you instead!!!
So around $73 billion a year to get him out of the country. Pricey, but less expensive than having him here doing his job.
There is a report that coconuts have been removed from the trees surrounding the hotel so that there will be no incidents.
Apparently people really do die from falling coconuts.
The POST TITLE would make a great CAMPAIGN AD AGAINST OBAMA for President in 2012.
Today is Jim Robinsons birthday..If you havent donated to FR, today would be a good day to give
I feel that there’s going to be trouble in India. The I-Government may use this trip as an excuse to do a little political house-cleaning and it will grow from there.
This is what happens when you elect a kenyan as president.
In Mumbai they are cutting down the coconut trees to keep them from falling on Obama’s head....hmmm It might knock some sense into him.
This in a country where millions are starving, and cows wander around as holy animals, that are not considered food.
No wonder Zero is visiting India...easily conned.
Here I sit trying to scrape together $2,000 for a new wheelchair because mine is twenty years old and falling apart, and buttbama and company is spending 200m per day of taxpayers money to go on something not much more than vacation. Such is life...
A question that today should have been slammed down his throat during his P.C.
He makes me sick.
Why can’t the legislative branch cut off this funding?
They are the ones in charge of mis-spending our tax dollars.
Sometimes things seem, and are, out of whack. This is a good example. To be honest, I expected Obama to scale back these plans considering the bad press, but again, I guess I am wrong..
The assclown isn’t going to accomplish anything over there that he couldn’t have accomplished with a couple of 15 minute phone calls and maybe a video conference or two.
But hey, it’s all just funny money anyway, right zero?
Do we know why he is going besides another bird flipped at America?
It’s really interesting, how they’re taking so many people, spending so much money, and it’s so in your face. Is it because obama thinks he and his family ‘deserves’ it? I don’t know, this entire trip is really odd. Yesterday, Obama’s marxist agenda was thwarted, and he knows it. Socialism in America was stopped cold stone dead. Poor bambi. He’s a failed president. He’ll never recover. He won’t move right, it’s his was or the highway. He’s a lame duck. Poor, poor obama. :)
Why do you say that? Are you in agreement to bestow him the title he wants?
I wonder if this is the most expensive Presidential trip in history? Sure sounds like it. I think a serious Congressional investigation is in order. This is waste-fraud and abuse on a massive scale!
Have you visited India recently? Last time I was there I saw enormous progress every where. Many Indians are now fat which was a rare sight for me as a child growing up in the 1950’s there.
Since Indians are moving away from socialism and towards capitalism, the country has a feel of booming business growth, construction of industrial plants and residential buildings.
In case you are not aware, India is now a net exporter of food! To be sure poverty is still prevalent, but I suppose to transform half a billion people out of poverty is no small task. The middle class in India is growing and exceeds the total population of United States.
Another historical fact...India had the highest GDP in world for 1000 years before the 17th century. The country certainly has the intellectual resources to get there again.
What did George Bush take on his first trip to the armed conflict into Bagdad, Iraq. Nohting....he snuck in without ever telling the damn press. What is Obama hoping to achieve by taking 3,000 people to India to the Taj? Why can we not get a reasonable explaination as to why he needs to spend $2,000,000,000.00? That is 2 billion dollars. This is absolutely insane.
If we had a press this would be huge during this recession.
$200 million dollars per day would kill a lot of terrorists or build a lot of border fence.
He won’t overcome this. He’s not THAT big and powerful. His power is diminishing day by day. Just look at his townhalls. He filled 60K stadiums in 2008, now, he can’t fill a high school gym. This is just another nail in his coffin. The problem with your theory is, there are more patriots than marxists. We are winning, America is alive! I live in Wisconsin, we just flipped our entire state, senate, house, gov, the whole nine yards. Obama, Michelle, Biden were here stumping 6-8-10 times, whatever that number was. There were here in force. They doubled down and lost. Wisconsin is solid Red. We always have been, we just needed to overcome 2 counties, Milwaukee and Madison, and we did it! It’s a great day!
Why would the Congress appropriate 2 billion dollars for this prick to go on a single trip to India. This needs congressional investigation.
He was not perfect, but he is a great man. I appreciate his concern for the troops and his self-deprecating nature. Obama could use a dose of humility. Could this country have picked a more useless prick?
Well now, I guess he's afraid a rabid group of Christian Tea Party folk will show up in force and attack the entire 1200 people with them who will man the barricades while he's shuttled to safety.
He's not expecting something, he's planning something. Then again, maybe I need to try a tinfoil hat before I think about B arry S oetoro. Every time I think of Mr BS I suspect something really, really, low to be on the way.
Well, this is the same POS that said “It would be patriotic of the “wounded” troops to purchase their own insurance, rather than “burdening” the US tax-payer, before he was conveniently “corrected” by a msm faggot.
It really is bizarre. What could they possibly do there to justify this?
$2 billion on a trip to India and not one damn reporter has the brains or balls to ask him what the hell he thinks he is doing with our money???
“Obama To Spend $200 Million Per Day On Mumbai Boondoggle....”
There’s really no reason to bitch about his extravagance and lavish lifestyle when noone in Congress has the b*lls to challenge his ligitimacy as POTUS. By now, most congressmen know well that there is something fishy about his background and that a proper identification is justified.
If this country is going to hell, its citizens should at least know who is leading it in that direction.
What is the source of this information? I just do not believe it. Two hundred million dollars a day, and ten days....no. It simply isn’t possible.
After that...it's Christmas in Hawaii.
Beats the hell out of Midland, Texas...right? s/
They should already be making ads about this to hammer home just how out of touch this elitist really is...
I thought it was very bad news last week when India announced is is buying $8.3 billion of fossil power generating equipment from the Chinese. It was unfortunate that US companies could not win some of this business.
This new order comes on top of the billions already committed by Indian telecom companies to buy 3G wireless equipment from China.
Will someone tell me what the purpose of this trip is??? This is ludicrous and outrageous and even the dem/lib/leftiss should be screaming about this. Hungry people in our country, the world and people out of work and being foreclosed on and he is spending that amount of money and for what???????? It is nothing short of SINFUL!!!
I don't why I never figured that...
Just never clicked for me...
Of course not. such largess is commonplace with all of our politicians as long as they have access to the taxpayers treasury. let's see how long it takes the new congresspeople to get on board.
it includes some spending money being provided to the travelers
I believe it is for 2 or 3 days, not 10.
Well, ya really can't blame them, LOL..
All kidding aside, there is clearly an abuse of power going on with Obama. He's out of control.
