Obama's Trip To Asia; What's Behind The Conservative Media Lies?

We woke up this morning to the cacophony of noise being made by the conservative media about, of all things, the president's official and legally scheduled visit to Asia. A visit that has already been cancelled twice before now, in order for the president to attend to emergencies and pressing issues here at home but which he now sees a window of opportunity to get out of the way. And what was the source of their noise?

A newspaper in India had reported that the president's visit to India will cost $200 million per day, a quote which will be immediately suspect to any human being that has a brain but, clearly, not to people like congress woman Michelle Bachman, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh. Of course, that's to be expected from brainless conservatives, latch onto some crap written by some crappy newspaper in some back of beyond place in India and start criticizing their own president without any attempt at verification.
They've already calculated the cost of the trip to be $2 billion after breaking down the cost per member of entourage, including the camels and horse drawn carriages, not forgetting the slaves and servants.

That's what conservatism means in the age of Obama; people losing their cognitive powers, clearly on purpose, in order to attack the foreigner in the White House. Anybody remember their reactions to the Desouza vomit in Forbes magazine? I'm thinking that, maybe, that same Desouza runs this rag sheet that ran this lie in India. Anyway, like they always do, the White House has come out to deny this ridiculous accusation - I don't know why they feel they have to respond to every nonsense - and, as usual, non of these shameless things will have the decency to apologize for lying against the person and office of the President of the United States.

That brings me to the main question of this article which is; why all of these ridiculous accusations against the person of Obama? Is it because he's black and not deserving of the same dignity and respect as other presidents of the United States? Why has everything he's done been so radically scrutinized and personalized even though they're things that are an integral part of the presidency and that have always been done by every president before him?

Remember the hullabaloo about vacations taken by president Obama even though the president before him had taken many more vacations at the same point in his presidency? Remember the flak about president Obama playing golf, almost as if he was some second class citizen who's not qualified to do that while president? How about the outrage over Michelle Obama's European vacation during which the conservative media questioned everything from motive to finances, or the White House redecoration which, by the way, the Obamas did with their own money. That fact wasn't still enough to stop them from criticizing and questioning.

So, what is the underlying reason behind this treatment of the person that was duly elected the President of the United States by those who claim to be the only real Americans? Might it be because, like they've always maintained in their idiocy, he's Kenyan and Muslim? Or, is it, as I and many other Americans believe but are not allowed to say, because he's black and blacks are simply not allowed the same dignity as other people even when they're president of the United States?
