Default Thought Obummer wanted to save money

Quote:
The US will be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs900 crore) per day on President Barack Obama'* visit to the city.

"The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the presidential visit," a top official of the Maharashtra government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists will accompany the president.

Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already in Mumbai for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.

Total financial irresponsibility. And wasted on a "Vacation" that has no real State Dept. value.

What in the world. The government gets stupider and stupider with each passing day. Just put him up in any old hotel without any special security, it'll do us all a favor

I think the voting public has proven that they are, for the most part, incapable of making intelligent decisions and are incapable of seeing long term consequences. They are easily swayed by baseless promises of grandeur and change from a charismatic idiot who has absolutely no qualifications.

I can't begin to tell you how many people voted for him just because he'* black.

Some sources say he'll be there for 10 days. Not entirely sure what the truth is. Still way too damn much.
