The US would be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs. 900 crore approx) per day on President Barack Obama's visit to the city.It is not rumor, it is not wild conjecture, it is not racism, and it was a creditable news report out of India early last week that fixed the cost of the Obama trip to India at 200 Million dollars a day.
"The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit," a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.-- Press Trust of India
The Obama administration seeing the PR nightmare this could turn into after the November 2 midterm election rebuke of the president’s Socialist agenda and Socialist ideology rushed to neutralize the negative impact of the news report by calling the report rumor and by attacking anyone who repeated this report as enemies of the president. But fact is this was a news report (see article)(here and here)
It was a report by foreign press that had nothing to gain and everything to lose by reporting this over-costly expense but Chris Matthews, fellow Keith Olbermann MSNBC stable mate, (Olbermann recently discredited and temporarily suspended for breaking MSNBC political objectivity rules with several Democrat political donations) called anyone who would question this unprecedented over-the-top presidential opulence Racists.

No Mr. Matthews this is not a report that originated in the American press this report originated in the Indian press and from Indian government officials. This report is not a effort by president Barry Hussein Soetoro’s enemies to deny him of any presidential significance.
This report only shows the Soetoro administration’s utter contempt for plight of the of jobless American and the continued out of touch politics of the Obama administration and their misuse of Big government to satisfy the whims of a Elite Oligarchy that has ensconced itself as American Royalty on a royal world tour.
