Hope Obama and Company enjoyed their stay in England. They used up all the transport,including the military for use for soldiers in Afghanistan, so the military had to use foreign transport! Guess it was more important for the President to have a 'hoops' buddy(Do they even have basketball courts in Great Britain???)that I heard he had to have along. Maybe they stuck a portable one in one of the military transport planes they used.

I have heard the phrase "soft tyranny" today and I think this large entourage is just a symptom of the prez thinking he's a sort of king. I wonder how many people other presidents took with them? This seems pretty excessive to me. And taking his own chefs? I would think that would be insulting to the British.

He is definitely arrogant. Remember he did not grow up in a log cabin. He was a very rich little boy thanks to his Grandmother. He went to college for free and his first "job" was in Congress if you can call that a job. Shalom~Adoniah

Hi Fortunata...Thankfully we don't have any economic problems in this country so our President can afford to travel in style...

He doesn't care about our military. All he cares about is himself and how he looks to the world. He's really pathetic. We're the ones that are paying for his 500 servants and his friend. Honestly, he can't go a week without playing basket ball? I wonder if that's what he'll be doing when North Korea launches their rocket at us?

Personally I don't see any reason he needed that many ppl with him. Him, his wife, and a few body guards is more than enough. He only took all those ppl so he could show off and act like he was royalty or something. What's that saying about a man that needs big toys is compensating? Maybe he's trying to put on a big show so that ppl don't know he doesn't have a clue what he's doing... [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

For a guy with 4 chefs, why did he need to fly in another guy to make pizza? Couldn't one of those chefs make some for him?
