(Update, 11.4.2010: The White House is now saying that this figure is incorrect and will not state how much the trip is going to cost. They are saying that the $200 million a day figure is a rumor. I guess we will have to wait and see how much it actually does cost us at a time when the true unemployment is in double digits and millions of Americans are in foreclosure. $200 million a day is not that farfetched an idea when we are talking about the Narcissist-in-Chief and his Empress.)
Yes, we really do want our
sultan President very own Xerxes to travel in style with (6 oops) 40 airplanes, 3 disassembled Marine One helicopters, 850+ hotel rooms split between two hotels, 3000 SS and assorted attendants, etc, etc, etc., with a $200 million dollar tab per day for the 3 day trip. We really do want to reward Chairman Zero for his handling of the economy, other domestic issues, and foreign diplomatic situations over the last two years, don’t we? Doesn’t he deserve it? We can afford it; just make sure to use powered milk, better yet; make the sacrifice for our great leader and only partake of bread and water.
I’m convinced he isn’t coming back which would be an interesting bittersweet moment; no more Obama, but Biden running the country. Which is worse?
