It is not costing 2 billion dollars for Obama to make his 3 day trip to India, etc. That is a lie propagated by Hannity, Rush, Glenn Dick and a number of Republican governors and congressman. Anyone who thinks the government deployed 34 warships and is spending 200 million a day for the trip is either a fool or complicit in the lies continually being spread in the media. For a party that vilifies the media they sure do take advantage of them when it serves their purpose especially when they lie.
On a side note. When asked if the 700 million dollar cost of extending the tax cuts for the "rich" was paid for, Boenher repeatedly avoided giving an answer. When the rhetoric from the far right is to reduce the budget and then the first thing they want to do is increase it, you have to wonder which side of the mouth we are going to hear from over the next few years.
Also, the American people have not spoken to support the Republican party just because some seats changed hands. The votes show about half the country supports the Democrats and half the Republicans in almost every race. Clearly, "all" Americans do not endorsed the rhetoric of the Republican party.
