Obama's Indian Tour

For a man who claims to be for the people, Obama sure has a funny way of demonstrating it. In the past he and his wife have had lavish vacations and parties at taxpayer’s expense – but his latest upcoming trip to India has everything beat.

I asked my wife how many people did she think would be necessary to accompany Obama on his trip to India. She guessed maybe 200 to 300, including the security detail. But she wasn’t even close.

The actual number is 3,000 people will accompany Obama on this trip on 40 aircraft. The Greenest President Ever, according the Sierra Club, will have a carbon footprint bigger than Al Gore. According to some estimates the round trip alone will emit 8,469 metric tons of CO2. All this at a cost of $200 million a day.

The funny thing is that I have yet to read what the purpose of this trip is. Not even one of his spokespersons, P.J Crowley, knew what the purpose of this trip is and what they expect to get out of it.

Ah, yes, the Imperial Presidency is doing well. But why do the taxpayers have to get the bill so Obama can get out of town after the Republican electoral victory?

Our Green President takes after Al Gore Qaeda. Why is it that the Liberals want to run our lives yet they trash the entire earth.
