Ms. Bachmann, I’m not sure who is the dumbest and most gullible person on this planet… You or the Morons who continue to vote for You. On Wednesday November 3rd the day after the election you had this to say on CNN…
The president of the United States will be taking a trip over to India that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day.
Shall we go to the Video?
$200 Million a Day!
Ms. Bachmann, have YOU absolutely NO concept of Money and Responsibility? Do you know how utterly STUPID and Outlandish these claims are, not to mention that they came from a foreign press writer who has absolutely NO access to US Government expenditures? Are YOU so Gullible and so Utterly Stupid that you just ramble these moronic sound bytes to gain attention to yourself? Again, what does all this say about the Fools and Idiots who voted for someone so completely inept? It says that the collective intelligence in the State of Minnesota has dropped to a sack of hammers. Perhaps You all should go back to school.
Loose Lips Sink Ships Retard!
Ms. Bachmann, Shall we see what PolitiFact had to say about your stupidity?
In an Oct. 7, 2009, story for McClatchy Newspapers, reporter Steven Thomma took a stab:
The costs of the trips — borne by taxpayers — are difficult to measure, but they’re expensive. When (the president) uses the familiar blue-and-white reconfigured 747 as Air Force One, it costs $100,219 an hour to operate, according to the Air Force. And that’s just HIS plane.
There also are cargo planes, used to fly in armored limousines, helicopters, staff and other equipment, as well as the Secret Service. A single Air Force C-17 cargo jet, for example, costs $6,960 an hour, according to the Congressional Research Service.
A total of 77 other aircraft were used on one multi-country trip to Asia by former President Bill Clinton in 2000, according to the Air Force Times, including 14 C-17 Globemasters, 12 C-5 Galaxys, three C-141 Starlifters and two C-130 Hercules. ABC News at the time estimated the cost of that entire trip at $50 million.
An Air Force Times story on March 27, 2000, said Clinton’s trip to India and Pakistan “may be the most expensive such mission ever carried out by the Air Force.” The reporters said the operation required hundreds of aircraft missions. They tagged the cost of the 5-day trip at $50 million as well. That comes to $10 million per day.
Previous trips by the Clinton administration were less expensive, according to a September 1999 U.S. Government Accountability Office analysis of the costs for Clinton’s 1998 trips to Africa, Chile and China.
“Presidential travel to foreign destinations requires planning, coordination, and logistical and personnel support,” the report stated. “The estimated incremental costs of President Clinton’s trips to Africa, Chile, and China were at least $42.8 million, $10.5 million, and $18.8 million, respectively. The largest of these costs consisted of operating expenses of the president’s aircraft and other military passenger and cargo aircraft; travel expenses, including lodging for the travelers; and telecommunications, vehicle, and other equipment rentals and procurement in the countries visited.”
We couldn’t find any significant evidence that Obama’s 3-day trip to India was going to be unusual in scope.
