The Press Trust of India reported that Barack Obama's trip to Indonesia will cost $200 Million per day, which would put the overall cost of the trip at right around $1 Billion. The timing of the trip couldn't be worse in light of the recent election results, which were the equivalent of a complete and total rejection of Obama's policies, which include rampant spending. Let's see, the trip includes 40 planes, 34 war ships, 3000 people in tow, rooms at the Taj Mahal, and the construction of an underground tunnel so Obama can safely make his way to Ghandi's museum.

Oh, and let's not forget to include the cost of cutting down all of the coconuts from trees underneath which Obama is scheduled to walk.

$200 Million a day sounds about right, doesn't it? Not according to the White House. They are debunking that figure. Only there's a slight problem. They refuse to tell the public how much the trip WILL cost.

Via Fox News:
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed reports by Press Trust of India that President Barack Obama's trip to Mumbai and Indonesia would cost the U.S. $200 million per day.

During Thursday's briefing, Gibbs stated that this report was "simply not true."

While Gibbs maintained that he would not go into the actual figure of what it costs to move the president from one country to another, he did state the costs are no more then what it took to travel former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush.
How's that for transparency?

Here are some Bible verses that Pres. Obama avoids:
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king."
And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: "let thy words be few...a fool's voice is known by multitude of words."
Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
For more on the Obamas, Google "Michelle Obama's Allah-day" and "Obama Supports Public Depravity."

[I ran into the web bit above. My concern about coconuts is this: if one should fall, Obama's head might break it!]
