    This is absurd to rent this many rooms to go to India. I think this is a extreme waste of money to be billing the American taxpayers. Obama should scale back his plans to the minimum if he means cutting spending. He needs to be transparent and reveal the cost of this cotton pickin operation.


    Barack and Michelle's Mumbai darshan plans - The Economic Times


    To ensure fool-proof security, the President’s team has booked the entire the Taj Mahal Hotel, including 570 rooms, all banquets and restaurants. .... 125 rooms at Taj President have also been booked, apart from 80 to 90 rooms each in Grand Hyatt and The Oberoi hotels.

    The officer said, “Obama’s contingent is huge. There are two jumbo jets coming along with Air Force One, which will be flanked by security jets. ..... The President’s convoy has 45 cars, including the Lincoln Continental in which the President travels.”

    “Rooms at the Hyatt are for the air crew and other members who will accompany Obama. The US president will also bring his chef along,”

    Probably.

    Obama wants to clear the place out obviously.

    Make sure the only bombers staying in that hotel are the ones who worked on Obama's campaign as fundraisers.

    I'm sure posters here are really disappointed that the Secret Service is taking their job seriously with President Obama. I'm sure they'd like to see the SS dial it down a few notches....look the other way....you know.

    I'm glad Obama is only letting bombers stay in that hotel if they helped him with his campaign.

    Also in the article, Michelle Obama will visit prostitutes during their stay. Now that is adding grace to the role of the first lady.

    Have other presidents needed such extravagance when traveling abroad? I can't recall other presidents completely booking 500 room 5-star hotels when visiting foreign nations. This seems to be a need solely of the Obama family.

    It is this kind of over indulgence on behalf of the president and his wife that is factoring into why the nation is turning away from him. Common sense says when millions are out of work and losing their homes, politicians spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on foreign junkets doesn't quite look good to the masses.

    When Obama stays there, there will still be people in that hotel who hate Americans, but the difference is they will love Obama.
