The whole day:
'200 million dollar a day' (2 billion for whole trip)
'34 warships'
'Obama thinks he is a king'

Ooooops, just made up....

It is probably 3-4 million a day...

Fine, so it's only 190 million a day and only 30 military ships are going.

Regardless of the ACTUAL amount, it's still obscene expenditure given the state of our economy right now.

Re: 2 billion dollar asian trip costs according to Fox, let's ignore the blatant lie?
It is hard to find the real numbers. But I found this:


So how much did those trips cost? In the case of some Clinton trips, we have figures from a 1999 report by the U.S. General Accounting Office — now called the Government Accountability Office. The GAO said that Clinton’s trips to Africa, Chile and China in 1998 cost at least $42.8 million, $10.5 million and $18.8 million, respectively — not counting the still-classified cost of providing Secret Service protection.

In Africa, Clinton was accompanied by about 1,300 individuals — not including members of the Secret Service — representing the White House, the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. The president visited six countries in 12 days, which means the trip cost $3.6 million per day.

Clinton made the five-day Chile trip in order to attend the second Summit of the Americas — a meeting of 34 heads of state or governments from countries in the Americas — and to hold meetings with the president of Chile. About 600 individuals accompanied the president on the trip, which we calculated would have cost $2.1 million per day.

When Clinton visited China to conduct talks with the president of China, he brought along about 500 individuals. The trip lasted nine days, which works out to a little less than $2.1 million per day.

The total cost including Secret Service protection would of course be somewhat higher, but even doubling or tripling those figures and adding in an adjustment for inflation would not produce anything close to the figure given by the Indian news article for Obama’s trip.

Thinking 30 or more warships are accompanying him is ridiculous...

We are in the full on retard circus.

Never have i seen presidential state trips being bitched about like this, the partisan bullshit is well in overdrive.

The reichwingers dont want to mention the 200 CEOS that went along, im sure that has nothing to do with the economy or with the reason the trip is costing x amount.

Seriously?


The low skilled labor force in this country is out of work so that means all presidential trips should be cancelled?

They just openly stated and believed the trip was 50-100 times more expensive than it is. They call it Fox 'news'.
