What the Lamestream Media Won't Tell You About the Obama Entourage to London

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.

What you fail to mention is that the 2011 G20 Summit was held in Cannes France.
The editorial cited was from 2009
There is no evidence that the numbers cited even happened in 2009.

Manufactured outrage about an event from two years ago is pretty lame, isn't it?

Especially when Bush took an entourage of 700 in '03.
