Our nation is broke, and Americans are fed up with the wasteful spending. The recent election was a judgment partly on the Obama presidency and its deficit spending. Does this man not get it? Stop the excessive spending. How many elections will it take for him to wake up?
Read about all the extravagance planned for Obama's trip to Asia, via Joshua Pundit. Is all this necessary with our economy in freefall? Is this not the same man who blasts CEOs for their lavish lifestyles? And what about the carbon footprint for this trip? Man, oh man.
Obama Takes A Roadtrip To India - At A Cost Of Over $2 Billion
"Want fresh proof that President Barack Hussein Obama didn't get the message from the election on Tuesday?
The president is fleeing DC and getting out of a dodge with a four-day road trip to India.
He's taking along the majority of the White House staff, his personal Lincoln Continental Presidential limousine along with 40 other vehicles, two jets, armed with advanced communication and security systems, his personal Marine 1 helicopter, and a fleet of 34 US warships, including an aircraft carrier.
Then there's the special bomb-proof surface tunnel that is going to be installed by US Army engineers on the approach to Mani Bhavan, the Gandhi museum that the president's going to visit soon after he comes to Mumbai on Saturday.
The president and his entourage have booked a total of 800 rooms in Mumbai at the five -star luxury Taj Hotel and at the slightly less upscale Hyatt, where the 'help' will stay when they're not on duty. A similar amount of space has been booked at the equally opulent Maurya Hotel in New Delhi.
Cost to the American taxpayer? Around $2 billion when you include the cost of deploying the warships and the massive 500-man security detail.
$2 billion dollars for yet another vacation , while our country struggles with debt.
We no longer have a president, but a clueless, uncaring Bourbon king...Louis XIV redux."
