Obama gets red carpet treatment – video

A little breezy upon exit.

Strong winds on Sunday played a bit of a spoilsport for the red carpet send off to the Obamas for Delhi as the gusts blew away the rug twice despite the best efforts of officials who finally decided to get rid of it to avoid an embarrassment.

Even as authorities in Mumbai were preparing to bid adieu to President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, strong winds kept blowing away the red carpet laid out at the airport for them and the problem was compounded by the sweep of the rotors of the two U.S. helicopters.

I think his triumphant entry into Mumbai was more like this:

Next video – Obama’s explanation of his opinion on jihad.  Sounds a lot like he did trying to explain to us how we should inflate the tires of the car to save energy in the above video.  Maybe it’s the halting monotone voice?

Another story from the foreign press on the Obama trip

Probably not since the days of the Pharaohs or the more ludicrous Roman Emperors has a head of state travelled in such pomp and expensive grandeur as the President of the United States of America.

While lesser mortals – the Pope, Queen Elizabeth and so on – are usually happy to let their hosts handle most of the security and transport arrangements when they venture beyond their home shores, the United States creates a mini-America on the move to ensure that nothing is left to chance.

Here you go, Anderson.  Another story to debunk.  CNN must cover for the president at all cost.  Get those investigative reporters out of mothballs.  Had the American press and media done some reporting on this story, which is really important as to the cost and purpose of the trip with unemployment in the U. S. still at 9.6 percent, then we would not have to rely on the foreign press for details and pictures.   And a lot of fabulous pictures, too.  Make sure you keep Michele Bachmann honest now.  Oh, and by the way, have you been able to uncover some trip she is taking wasting tax payers money yet?  I didn’t think so.

Are the Obamas going into exile?  I’m beginning to wonder.  Better check on that, Andy.
