Obama took this many assistants, doctors, chefs, etc. with him to London for the G-20 in 2009?? I sure don't remember seeing, hearing, or reading anything about it here in the U.S. Is it a hoax? Anyone know?
I think nothing was said about this as it is probably the normal policy for our president when he travels anywhere. I seriously doubt that any president before him stopped by the local fish and chips shack for dinner, nor did they go to the local hospital waiting room if a medical problem developed. I might have a problem with it if there had been anything to show how many people travelled with every other president before him. With out that information, this looks like an attempt to start another week of scream fests by the right.
When you compare the cost of this to the total cost of Bush's illegal wars, it loses it's impact now doesn't it? Dont forget the millions of dollars that the Bush admin claimed to have lost in Iraq, or the millions that Vheney's company of Ha;lliburton stole with their construction jobs that had to be rebuilt due to our soldiers having feces falling on them from the floors above.
I partially agree, but all that about Bush was on the news in the U.S. I wouldn't expect the POTUS to take along a loaf of bread, a jar of jelly, and peanut butter with him, but 6 doctors??
I remember when W went somewhere (London?), he had a large entourage because of protestors, and the media jumped all over it.
don't know why, but it is not unusual for a traveling Preasident to have attending staff along with him for reasons not disclosed. It is done a lot actally, including promised favors as a reason, never disclosed.
Stump: very true, plus we tend to forget how many vacations dear old W took during his presidency. God forbid Obama actually work.
