Dale McFeatters has the stomach-turning details on Barack Obama's massive entourage to London (500 strong):
The heads of government in London for the G-20 summit are discussing serious and weighty issues, which in time will be duly reported on, but right now the British press is entranced by the sheer size of President Obama's traveling entourage. And no wonder.
Obama arrived with 500 staff in tow, including 200 Secret Service agents, a team of six doctors, the White House chef and kitchen staff with the president's own food and water.
And, according to the Evening Standard, he also came with "35 vehicles in all, four speech writers and 12 teleprompters." For sure, our president is not going to be at a loss for words....
UPDATE: One reader wrote in to bring up the fact that this article was written in 2009 and was making a reference to the G-20 Summit in Cannes, France. On this point I stand corrected, but his disdain for the American people and extravagant lifestyle remain a problem that can best be remedied by impeachment or defeat at the polls.
