    Re: 34 warships sent from US for Obama visit

    And once again, the partisan media machine strikes again.

    Pffffttttt... truth smooth.

    Just go with the lie, scream it with a loud and outraged voice, and see your followers believe you without flinching! And the best part is when the truth comes out, it will not matter because the damage is already done. I can bet you that for years, many will go on thinking that Obama spent outrageous amounts of money on trips... millions more than any other President! It's sad, but it's the drawback of this age of disinformation.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    This is why I absolutely despise the far leaning (left or right) opinionated "entertainers". They can say what ever they want, fact or not, and their followers will believe them. The listeners are just being "entertained" afterall.

    I have to wonder where the thread starter heard this story from? I'm assuming they aren't a daily reader at the New Delhi Television website.

    Re: 34 warships sent from US for Obama visit

    Some pundits are now saying the "34 warships" is just another rightwing propaganda effort and those claims are not true at all. One called it laughable.

    I have been looking around on Google and I can't find any credible source that can confirm that or deny it. Anybody got anything other than a NewsMax or FauxNews type website they could point me to? Something with some facts? I know that the propaganda sites work for those folks who wanna believe this about that "Muslim" black guy the socialists elected president but I have been cursed a skeptic. I should have been born in the "Show-Me" state. I need a little more.

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    It was all over Fox News until the Pentagon said "ummm that's absurd."

    Try this one Captain: Pentagon Dismisses Reports of 34 Warships for Obama Trip Security - Political Punch

    “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."

    ...

    There are 288 ships in the Navy’s fleet, currently 147 of them are away from their home port and at sea. 110 of the 147 are deployed on missions, the other 37 are involved in training. Those numbers translate to 51 percent of the total fleet being at sea right now and 38 percent of the fleet being deployed.

    Using the number of 34 warships being reported by Indian media outlets, 34 ships out of 288 would mean 11.8 percent of the fleet would supposedly be working Obama security.

    Re: 34 warships sent from US for Obama visit

    I shoulda figured as much. Some folks don't seem to have any qualms posting lies and distortions in order to feel validated. What are they putting in their Kool-Aid these days? If it were me, I would feel pretty embarassed, time and time again, making myself out to be some kind of a gullible idiot for all the forum to see.

    Yessir. I will remain a skeptic. Those who fall for anything with stand for anything. (Or, something like that. ) Weebles wobble but they don't fall down. They just keep on posting more of that wingnut B.S.

    LOL!

    read WAPO and repeat that

    and, like i said, wait til judiciary and oversight start QUOTING the wonks

    but let's return to the topic, obnoxious obama's overseas excursion:

    Obama Faces Chillier Reception Abroad - WSJ.com

    Two years ago in London, Mr. Obama and his economic team were greeted at the G-20 summit as something akin to rock stars. At the G-20 in Seoul next week, "they're not going to have a lot of allies," said Alan Auerbach, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley, who has close ties to the White House.

    On some economic issues, the trip will play out as Mr. Obama against the world, with the U.S. president as one of the last adherents to Keynesian economic policies, which promote the use of deficit spending and tax cuts to spur economic growth.
    of course, this is what it's all about, big happenings thursday:

    Fed to Buy $600 Billion of Treasurys - WSJ.com

    U.S. dollar printing is huge risk -China c.bank adviser | Reuters

    CNBC: Dollar At Risk Of Crashing, Triggering Inflation

    FT.com / Americas / Economy & Trade - Brazil ready to retaliate for US move in

    CNBC: Germany Concerned About US Stimulus Moves

    My Way News - Fed bond move spurs backlash from Asia to Europe

    just more copy for you NOT to read, feel free to comment

    of course you can ALWAYS count on me to scrutinize every word for you, and i'll be sure to keep you informed

    are wsj, ap, reuters, cnbc and the financial times of london ok by you?

    The issue is that so many conservative pundits were willing to pick up this outrageous story and run with it without checking their facts.

    Since this outrageous report has been debunked, I wounder if those pundits will admit their mistake or just leave it out there and hope that their listeners/viewers don't hear the truth.
