The word on cyberstreet that has allegedly been leaked to the India press.: The presidential entourage will have 40 aircraft, including the Air Force One that will ferry the president. There will be six armored cars, including four Barack Mobiles and a Cadillac.
The president himself will be ferried around in a black Cadillac – dubbed ‘Barack Mobile’ – which has its own built in communications centre – to enable Obama to be in touch with the White House, US vice president and the US strategic command. The car also has the US nuke launch codes and the nuclear switch for the president. It can also withstand a chemical or germ warfare or even a bomb attack. President Obama will be accompanied on the trip by US first lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha, according to Indian newspaper Headlines.
At least they look great while visiting India. I often wonder what does folks think he should arrive in and where do folks think the First Family should sleep? If we left it to the asswipes, those folks would book the first family to stay in a hut in the slums and arrive in a hoopty.
For those who really care why President Obama traveled to India…
This is Obama’s first visit to India — and the first halt in a four-nation Asian tour that will take him to Indonesia, South Korea and Japan.
It will be Obama’s longest visit to any country since he assumed the presidency two years ago. On Sunday, Obama will reach New Delhi for talks with Indian leaders before leaving for Indonesia Tuesday.
Apart from Michelle, Obama is accompanied by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and National Security Adviser Tom Donillon and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.
Prior to his departure from the US, Obama said in a signed article in the New York Times that the US wanted ‘to be known not just for what we consume, but for what we produce. And the more we export abroad, the more jobs we create in America. In fact, every $1 billion we export supports more than 5,000 jobs at home’.
Obama said his priority was to double US exports in the next five years.
The president will also visit St Xavier’s college, where he will interact with select students, and address Indian business leaders.
In New Delhi, the US president will address Indian MPs.
Obama is pushing New Delhi to lift a cap on foreign investment in the defence sector while India wants more visas so high-tech workers can move to the US.
More than 200 US business leaders are also making the trip to India.
It is obviously a waste of time and energy trying to convince those folks who have that I will never to listen to a black guy mindset rooted on the inside. It will take several generations removed from their family tree to erase the build up of hatred of folks outside of their race, which by the way was planted in their spirits as a child…poor souls are filled with nothing but darkness!
The Republican Party along with their tea bag posse shammed folks into believing that they are working for the American people. Instead what we are going to get is a lot of bickering and bullshitting from those folks. The new rulers of the house blatantly told us all in our face while they claimed their victories on national television…they plan on pushing paper on President Obama desk to waste his time, repeal anything and everything that helps the lower class, fight for more taxes for the working class, fight rigorously to maintain the tax breaks for the wealthy, get rid of health care for the poor folks and continue to bullshit us why we should not vote for President Obama in 2012. Not one mention of rebuilding the economy nor any focus was mention about creating jobs until the next day….sounds like they had too much to drink and that made their lips loose. The folks who should be pissed are all those folks who voted their states red….would you like some blood in your tea? The only massacre is the Republican party plan to pick up where Bush left off bonking the working class folks in the butts. YUP! I am salty….

Side note.: To the asswipe on Facebook who made an asinine comment on my newfeed wall….RACE, RACE, RACE! It becomes about race when folks leave out of pocket comments, race baiting, name calling and racist slurs left under Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and social media forum boards. The commentors who hide behind their computer screen ranting and raving the “N” word toward our first family through the first punch….you don’t expect anyone to respond with an out of pocket response.
There need to be an law established about leaving racist comments on social media website boards. We need to hold those folks accountable like corporations are held in the workplace. President and First Lady Obama are not immune against racism nor racist comments. However, if an individual was to conduct themselves in a manner that would warrant an call to the EEOC, have the NAACP marching, ACLU, and any advocate group against racism yelling from the rooftops…the company would be sued for discrimination. Is the president of the United States not entitled to the same privileged? Why should he not be able to sue folks against racial discrimination or hold the companies accountable that allows such behavior on their boards. Has social media changed the way we allowed to communicate with folks? Is it now socially acceptable to call the president of the United States a nigger? This is 2010…hell I though the civil rights era fought against that type of behavior…folks are losing their minds. It is offensive in the workplace and should be censored in cyberspace on social media boards. There has to be boundaries set to adhere to a standard and calling someone out of their name in a racist manner by posting racial slurs is crossing the line. Just like companies pull advertising for behavior that goes against their brand image. Social media must step their game up…..ish is messy! This is not a black thing either….it is a people thing. No one should have to read racial slurs under videos and comment boards. It is totally unacceptable behavior in the workplace and should be on social media websites. I would have to fathom that those Askimet comment blocks are filled with racial slurs and taunting that would have me wasting my time responding with a few expletives that would make my blood pressure up…a sista girl don’t need that!
