      Here’s what I don’t understand... Mr. Obama criticizes CEOs for taking trips on private jets. I really have no problem with this criticism. But then he turns around and takes 3000 people on 40 jets with him to India. Can you say hypocrisy??

      Now before you start bashing this, it isn’t about what he is doing, it is about the fact that he doesn’t walk the walk. A “do as I say not as I do” attitutude never works!

      And for those of you that like to throw George W. Bush’s name around, here is what he took:

      250 Secret Service Agents
      150 National Security Advisors
      50 White House Aids
      200 Reps from other US departments
      15 sniffer dog teams
      4 personal chefs
      2 helicopter
      2 jets
      2 motorcades (40 cars each)

      I think it is another blatant example of how Obama needs to walk the walk, not just talk the talk!

        • This is exactly what I’ve been saying all along.  I haven’t studied it enough yet...but I need to really research how this trip is REALLY going to add jobs in the United States.  When I think of foreign countries and business...it makes me think of what US businesses are going to go oversees to get cheap labor.  I have to do more research before I can really comment any further....but....the cost of the trip.....shameful!

        • Annie, my bad.  Guess I swallowed up all this “garbage” and should be more “intelligent“.  

          I normally don’t like to be rude and I know I am but Anon you should really work on your spelling.

        • @ Anon I can certainly see how the war could and I believe does  exceed 2 million a day!  Just think about the cost's associated with what all is involved.  I know, boggles the mind huh? happy

        • I just don’t understand what possible benefit his going to India is to me as a taxpayer.  Really, all the money spent might not be so bad if he was actually going to accomplish something, but I can’t see anything he could or would do that justifies that kind of waste.

        • I won’t debate the costs or the right or wrong of it.... Is President Obama the ONLY president that has done such a trip?

        • First, before I reply to Annie’s original post, by the way a very good one.
          I’d like to address anon. And only her. I can understand why you would want to remain anon most intelligent people can say their thoughts and be respectful enough to value someones elses. intelligent people can agree to disagree but have a conversation without getting petty.
          Clearly you can not. You choose to throw in your half cent and hide. Basically childish behavior and then your information isnt correct. Keep your garbage to yourself unless you want to act like an adult and back what you say with us knowing who u are. I think if you want to critize someone show them the respect of who you are.
          Waste of time.
          Now, Annie, I’d like to chime in on this topic........WHAT does he think? That you can condeme others for doing what u do....
          And he justifies this how? Im not understanding why when we as a nation are watching he’d do the same thing he critizes corporations for doing. I think because in the past as a nation we didnt complain as much when huge amount of wasteful spending happened. But then we were stablier......now, we mind and we should have minded then to.

        • Maybe he’s getting all the vacation time in he can during his 1 term as president! LOL

          Ok, I know I shouldn’t joke like that but, gosh, when I see the state of our nation what I’d really like to do sometimes is cry. And, honestly, nothing he does even surprises me anymore. It’s maddening.

        • LOL...I am reading this entire thread and finding it quite comical...especially with Anon. tries to make in her own words an “intelligent” comment!  You know...we all feel differently about our government right now but we are all still Americans!  At the end of the day...we are Americans........unless you‘re an illegal alien living in the United States and posting on FAB40!!  LOL  

          Anon.if you can’t post how you feel and everyone know who you are then what you have to say is not worth two cents to me.  Very immature....heartbreak

        • Okay now since I have said that.  I will have to say this.  Apparently Mr. Obama thinks that he does not have to answer to the American people.  He believes that we missed his message.  Sorry Sir but I did hear your message and I do not like what I am hearing, or seeing.  I do think he is missing the American public message though.  And by the way All that “Shine” is starting to look very tarnished to alot of people that were fooled by the “Shine“.
