The answer is: Bush never took a trip that cost that much.

Of course, the other thing is that Obama never will, either.

The Afghan war costs us 'only' $190 million a day.

How the fark does WND have a white house correspondent?

"How the fark does WND have a white house correspondent?"

Fox News... one in the same anymore.

if you keep the lie alive, someone else will believe it and spread the word.

Pretty much the only reason that Republicans still exist.
 
2010-11-05 08:18:48 AM  
oh, and obviously... b-b-b-b-both sides are bad.

I thought the same thing, but the video of the discussion made me realize why. It's for the lulz.

Yes, this whole story is not only a figment of our collective imagination, but also an isolated incident.

Looks like somebody is feeling hurt.

has anyone mentioned that the $200m/day number is complete bullshiat and is wildly inflated yet? no?

Nope. The story may or may not be accurate. WND ain't quite the reputable source I'd quote, but whatever. The real point is assuming the R's are somehow more farking evil than the D's. "Your" team is just as farking crooked as the other, so stop defending them so vehemently. I don't give a shiat which party you vote for...they're both completely bought.

If he would just settle for regular mustard this wouldn't be an issue.

exactly the same, now with even less examples than usual.
 
2010-11-05 08:31:01 AM  
Spad31: he story may or may not be accurate.

Obama's trip to India costing $200 million a day "may or may not be accurate" be accurate in the same way the story that I have been given laser eyes by a top secret government project and I am going to use those laser eyes to fight crime in the streets of Manhattan may or may not be true.

I heard Obama is going around wearing a 60 billion dollar exoskeleton. This is exactly the kind of change we don't need!

may or may not be accurate, that's license for a whole lot of fun right there.

I remember the poutrage when Bill Clinton traveled to China at a cost of $260 million.
 
2010-11-05 08:41:49 AM  
at least no big name members of a particular party ran with this "possibly accurate" story in order to spread the word.

The way the Democrats (those evil bastards) always do.

FTFA: Reports also mention the use of 34 U.S. warships to help with security.

And the Pentagon says those reports are nonsense:
The Pentagon did not mince words in dismissing as "absolutely absurd" and "comical" media reports from Indian news outlets that the US Navy was sending 34 warships off the coast of Mumbai as part of the security preparations for President Obama's upcoming trip to India.

Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell did not shy away from dismissing reports that appeared in Indian media outlets, such as the Press Trust of India and the television network NDTV. The Press Trust of India is that country's largest news agency.

Morrell told reporters he was making an exception to the practice of not discussing Presidential security details to shoot down the reports.

"I will take the liberty this time of dismissing as absolutely absurd this notion that somehow we were deploying 10 percent of the Navy -- some 34 ships and an aircraft carrier -- in support of the president's trip to Asia," said Morrell at today's Pentagon briefing. "That's just comical. Nothing close to that is being done."

I really can't tell whether people who derp like this are joking or not, anymore.

That's how far the discourse in this country has fallen.
 
2010-11-05 08:46:07 AM  
I just want to know what the fark is being done with all the coconuts removed from the trees so as not to present a danger to the President.
 
2010-11-05 08:46:54 AM  
To be fair, if I were going to India I'd invest that much in making sure I had the latest toilet technology available to me at all times.

Then again, everything I know about India I learned from "Slumdog Millionaire," Haji from "Johnny Quest" and the lunch buffet at Taj Palace.

Not really. Now, being caught in the rain...that there is a different story.

Did anyone RTFA? The correspondent at least says the 34 warship figure is inaccurate, I was wondering how the fark that would be reasonable

It may be true that Limbaugh smuggled drugs on his sex tourist vacations to the Domincan Republic.

It may be true that Beck raped and killed a girl in 1990.

It may be true that Palin's supporters would also have followed Adolph Hitler.

Those are all true.

The Ann Coulter-approved internet/talk radio told me so.

eraser8: FTFA: Reports also mention the use of 34 U.S. warships to help with security.

And the Pentagon says those reports are nonsense:




Regardless of accuracy, what would these warships be doing anyway?

Are they going to recruit & train entirely new crews and build brand new ships?

No?

Then the cost of the ships steaming off the coast of India is about the same as them steaming off the coast of Florida.

what about the time that MSNBC started and spread the rumor that... um, well.

or what about when NPR was on 24 hours a day telling everyone that... uh.


B-b-b-both sides are bad and EXACTLY the same, shutupshutupshutupshutup !

I guess my question right now is, why not give us a number that it does cost instead of saying, "Its not what you think. Now, go away."

The costs of presidential security are never revealed, since such numbers might give insight to the way presidential security operates.

Would you also like them to provide a birth certificate, perhaps?
