  • Barack Obama is fleeing the country for a ten-day “please stop taking our jobs?” tour of India, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan. And there have been many accurate news reports suggesting that Obama is spending two hundred million dollars a day on this Gluttonous Asian Vacation: Our president does not pack lightly! According to Matt Drudge, the White House has been lifted from its foundation and placed on a flatbed truck made entirely out of diamonds, and this diamond-encrusted flatbed truck was placed on the most expensive aircraft carrier — and then this aircraft carrier was put in the cargo hold of a different and way more expensive aircraft carrier. And this aircraft carrier is just one of the thirty-four warships that Obama is taking with him. (The rest of these ships are carrying delicious snacks, like popcorn shrimp.) Talk about splurging! Michele Bachmann is just so goddamned angry about this reckless spending, and her soon-to-be formed Constitutional Conservative Caucus Party (CCCP — what a filthy Pinko!) is going to hold hearings, on Fox News. Too bad all of this is just phony baloney nonsense made up by some Indian tabloid. Uh, but it is true that Obama will attend the G-20 and APEC summits while he’s over there. Shame on him! (What?) [CNN]
  • Meanwhile, in Washington State: Patty Murray has defeated Dino Rossi! [Seattle Times]
  • And it looks like Dannel P. Malloy will be the next governor of Connecticut. [NYT]

    Drudge has it all wrong. The White House will be flown over by a huge team of specially trained bald eagles, carrying the building by way of a solid gold custom-made harness and cable, all decorated with fragments of Faberge eggs smashed especially for this decorative purpose.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      Why don't the save Obama the trip, and just ship Indonesia straight to the White House?

  • I haven't heard how Dino Flintstone made out in the Bedrock election.

    CCCP=SSSR in Russian, so Bachmann's anti-commie cred is still intact. I know this because I am a filthy pinko.

    "The rest of these ships are carrying delicious snacks, like popcorn shrimp."

    Actually, Drudge Report is now saying that the ships are exclusively carrying black-eyed peas, chitlins, fried chicken, and grape drink. And that's just for Obama's "body man", Reggie Love and his family.

    • BarackMyWorld

      Also, pork chops and watermelon will arrive via cargo plane to insure freshness, according to the usual reliable sources.

      • natoslug

        Pork chops? PORK CHOPS!??!!? You're slipping . . . the President would need to issue a fatwa or jihad or statement of I'mabadmuzzie against himself if he ate pork chops. Socialist communist stalinist feminazi muslim luo tribesmen may do a lot of porking, but would not eat the stuff. And if there's one thing I've learned about teabaggers and the various right-wing nutjobs screaming this shit about my President, it's that they are consistent in their bullshit. How dare you impugn their insanity by claiming they'd make that slip.

        • BarackMyWorld

    • justkillmenow

      Wait. Reggie is married?!?!? NO!!!!!!

      • Sgt_Biyatch

        No, he's not married, as far as I know. I meant his extended family – you know, cousins, second cousins, family friends, and second cousins of family friends.

  • Serolf_Divad

    The $200,000,000 a day figure comes from the advertising supplement of a free Indian newspaper that quotes an anonymous source who heard if from the brother of a cousin of a guy whose uncle Sanjay had lunch with the assistant undersecretary to the Register of Wills in the province of Buttfuckistan (that borders a province that borders a province that Obama will be visting on his tour) so it's 100% legitimate and verified.

    How DARE Barack HUSSEIN Obama travel to foreign countries! He's the president of the United States of MURICA (for now), not Derpderpderpbunchabrowns-istan! And if he has to travel to consult with his Muslin overlords, he should do so in the cargo hold of a beat-up old B-2 bomber and stay at the youth hostel.

    • PsycWench

      Sadly, that last option is off the table, due to their experiences with Bill Clinton at the youth hostel.

    When Bush traveled as president he rode a bicycle everywhere. Or he had a limousine that used the live infants of the poor for fuel, I can't quite remember which.

    • OneDollarJuana

      Sure hope he used fetal-alcohol-syndrome babies to satisfy the 10% ethanol requirement.

    • hooray4anything

      I'm pretty sure he grabbed a "Let's Go.." book before he set off somewhere and just traveled with a backpack and stayed at Youth Hostels the whole time

    • Rotundo_

      Actually that was Lord Cheney with the live baby fueled limo. W's ride was powered by specially formulated presidential fuel* supplied by Halliburton and KBR by Lord Cheney's request.

    Now begins the drip, drip, drip of daily exaggerations, misrepresentations and outright lies directed against the Administration and Barry personally. I remember it well from the Clinton years. Problem is, the Faithful are predisposed to belief each and every offering and gleefully eager to pass it along with puff-up outrage and undisguised disdain. It's going to be a long two years, campmates.

    • BerkeleyBear

      You also aren't supposed to badmouth other Americans (like say the Democratic nominee for President) on foreign soil, but that didn't stop shrub from crapping on Obama to the Knisset.

  • iburl

    The wingnuts are just mad because Obama has no intention of demeaning these foreigners through crass stupidity, beligerance, and arrogance, like their hero GWBush mastered. He probably won't even puke in a head-of-state's lap.

  • revmod

    Anderson Cooper was asking Bachmann on Wednesday how she might suggest balancing the budget, and she suggested the President could probably travel cheaper than $200M a day. AC had a look on his face along the lines of "Am I going to have to listen to these people just cold pull random numbers out of their asses for the next two years?"

    I feel certain this will be another of those zombie lies that just won't die, no matter how debunked.

    • spooked911

      I feel certain this will be another of those zombie lies that just won't die, no matter how debunked. Oh, no doubt! And for some reason, it's always zombie lies about Democrats. Everything is okay if you're Republican.

  • Maman

    oh, please, please tell me it is true that Bachman has gone with CCCP!

    • GOPCrusher

      Don't worry. It will get spun as the Democrats made up the rumor that CCCP were the initials of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, just like we decided that Tea Bagging would be slang for putting your testicles on someone's face after the Tea Bagger Movement decided to call themselves the Tea Baggers. Or "Going Rogue" was the female version of "Going Commando" after Bible Spice's book came out.

  • Barry is just beginning to reap the rewards of all that bi-partisan-y good will he showed when he had the Rethugs down with unstoppable majorities in both chambers of Congress. A victory for 11-dimensional chess.

  • Rosie_Scenario

    And remember when Dubya was riding his bike on some state trip in England and rode over a British cop and injured him? Good times.

  • SorosBot

    The wingnuts are certainly skilled at treating routine Presidential actions as if they're some huge scandal when performed by Obama (and Clinton before him); why, I bet he might even use a teleprompter at some on this trip. Next up, on Fox News: is the President wasting taxpayer dollars by spending some of the time he should be devoting to America using a toilet instead?

    • Too late. They jumped on that meme a week ago. I spent an evening in a bar with a TV stuck on FoxNews and the number one news crawl on the bottom of the screen was about how a teleprompter has NEVER been used in the Indian parliament before Obama.

      The subtext was just astounding:
      a. Obama is a dithering moron without a teleprompter (as opposed to our previous president who was dithering idiot at all times)
      b. Other brown people don't need teleprompters, why should ours?
      c. Going to India proves he is a communist since they have a paliament.

      • mumbly_joe

        Hey, just be glad they haven't yet jumped all over the fact that he's taking Air Force One out there, and suggested that this is because, like all negroes, and UNlike all red-blooded white Americans, Obama can't swim.

      • SorosBot

        Obama is the first President to ever use a teleprompter, it certainly hasn't been used by every single one since its' invention, and even though he has proven many times he can think on his feet and give good impromptu speeches his sometimes using one proves he's dependent on it. There's no hypocrisy there; it's not like Bush was so unable to speak without preparation he needed a wire to feed him answers at the debates.

        • Chet Kincaid

          Yes, I just do not understand the Teleprompter Smear. He has proven time after time that he can outthink and outdebate these assholes without one.

          There is no such thing as truth and falsehood anymore.

  • PsycWench

    But…but..but…I thought spending was good? That's why we're supposed to slash taxes, so that people will take their extra money and buy stuff with it and that generates jobs? By my calculations Barry's trip will add 1,300+ jobs to the economy over the next five years (I can make up random numbers too!) so Bachmann et al should be all over it.

    • x111e7thst

      In fact Presidential travel creates at least 1300 jobs a year and that does not even count the horde on Faux Noise and Loud Radio who spend all their time yelling about it.

    On the other hand, were Barry traipsing off to say, Uganda, to spew spread the word of Jeebus and the superiority of heterosexuality on the public dime, we wouldn't be having this coniption fit, would we?

    • No, we'd be hearing about how he's going there in order to get secret instructions from his Kenyan Muslin handlers to try to kill the baby Jesus AGAIN when he comes back.

      • jim89048

    • elviouslyqueer

      Oh right. Wingnuts would go completely batshit (I know, not a far walk for them) if Barry went anywhere near the motherland Africa. Hell, they'd probably pull out the Idi Amin card and paint it as a recruiting trip for Barry's new insurrectionist army.

      • GunTotingProgressive

        He needs to recruit for his UN "One World" army. Our guns aren't going to confiscate themselves, people! Besides, where do you think the Black helicopters come from?

      • Chet Kincaid

        He already went to Ghana with great fanfare in July 2009. Or are you saying the wingnuts would now be freshly emboldened to get extra-racist about it?

        • elviouslyqueer

          I don't recall there being any screaming batshit wingnuttery when Barry went to Ghana. *does a quick search for "Ghana" in Wonkette's archives; doesn't find anything* Of course that was in the relatively early days of his presidency, before shit really started hitting the fan. But yea, I was riffing on bitchin's comment about Barry's hypothetical trip to Uganda, and figuring that if Barry even thought about visiting any country in Africa, the whole "Going back to Kenya-Mama Afrikkka" racist bullshit would go into high gear.

  • PompousMagnus

    I actually feel kind of bad for Dino Rossi. He's now lost three statewide races by ultra-narrow margins. No outright, "Gee, I lost" reflection for him. It's more like, "Gee, three times I just couldn't get those last few votes." Must be painful.

    The American people aren't happy unless they're being lied to by people out to fuck their asses raw. We live a country where the ratio of dumb, ignorant cunts to rational people is roughly 6 to 1.

      I haven't been over to Daily Kos yet, but I wonder how many people have posted how they either voted for Republiklans or didn't bother to vote at all because they wanted to teach Obama a lesson because DADT hasn't been repealed, no single-payer health care system, and the entire Bushyt Cabal hasn't been publically executed for war crimes.

    John Boehner is transgendered and keeps a bottle of Jergens lotion and a fresh English cucumber in his briefcase.

    And by the time he gets back, Boehner better have some fucking jobs.

    Realize? Hell no, they'll think we're stupid for not believing in the latest insanity just because the facts show it's not true; hell judging by your post's 'p' of 0 a minute ago I'm guessing there's one of them here right now. Remember, these are the people who keeping screaming that Obama needs to show his birth certificate that he showed over two years ago.

    I don't know if this has been said, but previous visits have been several mil per day. Clinton's visit to Africa that is being cited in these articles was around 3.6mil a day per the GAO, with inflation that's a little over 4mil.

    200 mil dollars. What if we make that rupees (no, not from Legend of Zelda you tards). Exchange rate looks to be 45:1. Gee, works out to 4+ mil a day.

    -.-

    If Hopey wants to spend money in India, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan, he should just visit his local Wal-mart and plop down two hundred million trillion dollars on cheap plastic shit made in foreign sweat shops – just like real 'Murcan teabaggers do.

    Amazingly enough, Michelle, loose screw, Bachmann was a tax attorney before running for the House. It is no wonder that MN is in a financial pickle with loony bug Michelle doing the books.

    What is also interesting is how she could have managed to attend law school and not have a clue about the Constitution. Maybe she went to 'night' law school for tax people. They might have only covered the latest tax loopholes.

    She needs to be hospitalized. After all, it is the most merciful thing to do. You can't just let the profoundly mentally ill roam freely without any supervision.

    I hope Dino has learned by now to save his concession speeches so he doesn't have to keep rewriting them year after year.

    How much for the First Lady's evening gowns made of cow meat encrusted with blood diamonds?

  • comrad_darkness

    How does this compare to the government spending $500,000,000 a day powering a forcefield and cloaking device to protect Dick Cheney's house?

    You can classify republicans from a brain scan: the part of the brain involved in recognizing utter hypocrisy shows up only as a watery mass.

  • My guess: Another manufactured development intended to obfuscate the looming vote to hike the debt ceiling.

    Sarah Palin wouldn't dream of going to Asia without her barge of deep fried hookworms.

      Leave Bristol alone!!!

    What you all have to understand is that Republicans traveling is good for America, good for freedom, and good for life…..Democrats doing it is EVIL! PURE EVIL!
