All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

The Obamas Trip the Light Fantastic

A few days after the election the President and his entourage will be taking a deluxe trip to Mumbai, India to recover from Democratic elections losses and the victory of his Republican enemies. When they arrive they will be taken to the five-star seaside Taj Mahal Hotel, where they have booked all 570 rooms of the resort, as well as all banquet rooms and restaurants at the hotel. In addition, they have booked 125 rooms at Taj President and an additional 80 to 90 rooms each in the Grand Hyatt and The Oberoi hotels. The president's convoy for the trip includes 45 cars including the President's Lincoln, all of which are being transported by Jet. The President will be seeing the 26/11 Memorial to India's devastating massacre and fire by terrorists and visit the National Centre for Performing Arts. The First Lady is planning to meet with a group of "commercial" sex workers during the two-day visit. Americans taxpayers are footing the bill for what some have called the President’s narcissistic and self-aggrandizing behavior. The White House will not provide a cost estimate for the trip.
