President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama landed in India today. Their four day state visit has been the subject of lots of controversy because of an anonymous and, according to the White House, untrue report that the trip would cost close to 200 million per day.Vodpod videos no longer available.
The trip is expected to help create more US jobs (some 54,000 gigs!!!), with Obama declaring deals worth $15 million and promising to remove restrictions on high tech exports to help international trade.
The trip has drawn criticsm from shady conservative Obama haters like Michelle Bachmann, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and other known unscrupulous characters who have been running rampant with this unconfirmed Indian press story (which used an anonymous source) that Obama’s trip to the far east would cost some $200 million dollars per day, with expenses including an entourage of thousands, military ship detail and more random ridiculousness… The White House press correspondent has already attempted to squash the bull-dookie by denying these reports.
