If you wish to discuss moderation, there is Binky in the Basement (though I don't think you have permissions to access that yet), and PM's.

    Back on topic, please. I'm curious to see if you have any substantial evidence backing up your claim.

Does Obama really need to be jetting off like a King and spending money we do have? HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Then there are these partisan hacks in the media making excuses just the same as posters here. Its not the amount of money, its spending money you dont have to begin with.

    Let me ask you this. If you had no money in your pocket (America), living on credit (America), your economic portfolio for the future is bleak (America), would you be flying off to another country staying in the grandest of grand with 1000 of your best buddies while your wife and children stayed at home and starved? Well this is how I see this stupid ****ed up trip. And I dont give a ratass what letter is by the President name taking this trip.
    No i meant where was your evidence he's spendin 200-300 million dollars a day.

    But yes I would approve of this kind of trip because trade deals are good for business, good for growth, and good for jobs. So while he's spending money he's also creating it.

    I mean you complain about how unemployment is high, then complain when Obama goes and signs a new trade deal which will increase job growth.

    What claims? The claim where I said the whole trip was going to cost around 300 million? Never did I claim 200 million a day. I only said that some on this thread couldn't prove it isn't 200 million a day just like it might cost 20 cents a day because the Admin wont release the costs.

    I do know from my military background that to operate any military machinery is expensive. Just the 10 hr flight over and back there will cost 1.3 million and that's just fuel cost. The staff and all the "benefits" must cost at least another million. Then booking the whole Taj Mahal Palace. Obama room alone will cost 42250.00 a night. The cheapest room is 3600.00 at night and they booked the whole place. Thats 580 rooms for 1000 people.

    Show me where Americans will be gaining any jobs. HD just had a lay off. If anything it will be putting layoff people back to work, which is good, but creating jobs is a huge stretch.

    Now show me where I claimed such a thing. I said 300 million for the whole trip. If you going to accuse someone of something at least have your facts straight before embarrassing yourself.

    Re: Results of Obama's India Trip

    I would have to put the total cost of Obama's trip at or around 300 million.

    For those with the ability to claim one thing when its clear its another.

    I show you in the OP of this topic:

    * The sale by Boeing of 30 new 737 aircraft to private Indian airline SpiceJet. The White House says this will help support over 12,000 US jobs.
    * Preliminary agreement had been reached on the Indian purchase of 10 Boeing C-17s military transport planes.
    * The sale by GE of fighter 107 F414 jet engines to the Indian military.
    * A separate deal with GE worth $500m (309m) for the sale of six heavy duty gas turbines and three steam turbines to India's Reliance Energy Ltd.
    * Harley-Davidson plans a new plant in India to assemble American-made motorcycle kits.
    * The White House said India had identified GE subsidiary GE Transportation, based in Erie, Pennsylvania, and Electro-Motive Diesel, of LaGrange, Illinois, a unit of Caterpillar Inc, as bidders to supply Indian railways with over 1,000 diesel locomotives over 10 years.
    I mean the big one at the bottom is 1,000 diesel locomotives over 10 years.

    Also I looked back at your posts and I didn't see where you said 200-300 million a day, my mistake. I do apologize for that error. However, now I'm going to ask for evidence that it costs 300 million for the total trip. So please provide me with that.

    Lets just use the cheapest room rate. 580x3600=2,088,000 a night. That's not counting any room service or any other fees. 2,088,000x7= 14,616,000. Obama's room alone is 300,000 for the stay. Just between rooms and Air Force 1 thats 16 million and thats without even counting his 45 cars and the shipping costs, flights of his 1000 people, meals, entertainment, security and military personal and you dont believe its going to cost 200 million. HAHAHA
