    They are excited about our First Couple and a lot of us here in America are too. It really pleases me to see the reception the Indian people are extending to our President and First Lady!!!

    Thank you for the great coverage of their trip to India, Chipsticks. If not for you, I’d not have seen most of this stuff.

    I love that the Indians prize education and intellect. Here, not so much. Here, going to Harvard means you’re an “elitist.”

      You’re so welcome Hachikō, the video and pic posting is my pleasure!

      I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am actually amazed by the lack of MSM coverage of this trip – one that is potentially HUGELY important economically and politically. How pathetically insular can you be?? It’s just shocking. Even in my part of the world there is extensive coverage of the trip, eg on British/Irish/French television. I look at Politico, for example, and all I see is coverage of Rethugs and their vile, nasty attacks on the President. They have a supposed daily ‘diary’ and schedule for the President – they don’t even mention his Asian schedule!!!!!

      Good grief.

      Any way, screw them – had a busy day with work, but all done now, will post more videos and pics in the next couple of hours. India appreciates him and Michelle SO much, you’re right – they don’t see educated people as a freaky threat, they simply admire them. Bless them.

      Rant over!

        Chipsticks,

        If it’s positive about the President, the MSM will not report it. I really believe they want the President to fail. Can you believe there was a media black-out on his rally of 35,000 people, in a swing state, 2 weeks before election day? That was stunning. But let Palin run with a 1000 supporters, it’s wall to wall coverage.

        The MSM can no longer hide their distain. I see them.

        • November 7, 2010 at 5:23 pm

          I’m not making this up: the headline story on Time magazine’s Page site is that Sarah Palin will address the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association annual convention tomorrow. Much further down the page there are just some pool reports on the President’s day in India.

          Seriously don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

            Guys, Please allow me to get this out of my system with this essay. What we’ve got going on here is a campaign to stop President Obama any way they can because he is messing up a whole lot of money and he looks different.

            Look at America’s history and the leaders who’ve tried to stop the lawlessness, the corruption, the greed and a total disregard for the laws in this country: basically Capitalism at its worse. Lincoln, Kennedy and Now we have another leader who has uncovered and brought to light more corruption in government and business than any 3rd World country that they keep deflecting our attention to. President Obama has exposed the oil companies (Bush’s family money comes from oil (Exxon); Cheney (Enron and BP oil); Wall Street, pharmacy companies, insurance companies, medicare and medical (doctors) all skimming and all the connections that the drug cartels have invested in this country: big, big money. And the moral decay of this country he hasn’t even gotten into that yet: the porn, the human trafficking

            The President is getting ready to make a mockery of the Republicans with all their winning by bringing home partnerships that will put Americans back to work. They don’t care whether Americans go back to work or not. (The Media will not sufficiently cover the President’s already successful trip to Asia.) Jobs that were shipped overseas benefitted big American companies overseas companies often run “sweat shops” with children and the U.S. has to pay union wages here; thus reducing profits-No Way keep those jobs in foreign countries. Lincoln abolished slavery; thus reducing the South’s conditions to almost as bad as the slaves-money; Kennedy was launching an investigation into eliminating the mafia’s spread in this country-money.

            What is important here is that we sincerely petition the throne of God for His Divine intervention as our President moves through this cesspool in this country. I would really like to see him do just one term. (He has accomplished in 20 months more than any president has in 8 years.) Can one man make a difference here? Yes, Scripture says, “Where there are two or three gathered in my Name there I will be also.” As I pray I asked Him to Guide and Protect our President, and He promised me He would protect our President. As I fret over his safety, I guess I need to drop back a little and examine my faith. Please Lord, guide and protect the Obama family and please help me to understand, “You got this”.

            I just saw on CNN that there are protesters in Jakarta, the President’s next stop. They have elaborate signs and banners protesting that President Obama has not done enough for the Muslims. He is not their leader. Where did they get the money for all these signs and banners? Indonesia is one of the poorest countries in the world. They are still digging out from the worst Tsunami and an earthquake they’ve ever had. I smell infused corporate American money designed to embarrass our President with this protest..

              America has poisoned the President’s image in Indonesia. Indonesia was so excited during the ’08 campaign and when he won the Presidency. Then earlier this year things started going ugly their when an artist built a beautiful bronze statue of Obama as a boy and they put it in a park and someone started a facebook page and 57K people joined to protest the statue. Who do you think most of those 57K people were? Americans. Since then, all we’ve seen out of Indonesia is hostility towards the President. I hope it’s another media-created phenomenon and that the truth really is the opposite of what we’re being made to see and think about how this country, he called home as a boy, sees him today.

                You are right, Hachiko I forgot about that, ThanX. Maybe he won’t get to go anyway because of that erupting volcano. And you are also right about our information being filtered. They only show us manipulated news, like what happened with Shirley Sherrod’s firing from the Dept. of Agri. As it is, the news outlets are quietly being bought up by a couple of MSM networks, i.e., I think ABC’s parent company is Disney as well as the Family channel,& MSNBC; CNN, HLN and a whole lot more belong to TimeWarner. Rupert Murdock owns FOX, ESPN and the Wall Street Journal. Our flow of unfiltered information is limited. This is worldwide not just here in America. Hummmm, sounds familiar. There are (12) fictional books that mentions this serious control of information to the people, control the information they receive, you control the people. The series is called, “Left Behind” by LaHay & Jenkins. If you read the first one, the rest you can’t wait to read. All 12 are exciting reads.

        I look at Politico44 too. And I was also pissed off at them for not including the President’s itinerary in India.

    • November 7, 2010 at 4:03 pm

      I concur. And some poke fun & roll their eyes at the educated. It’s unbelievable really.

    I just visited this site for first time, referred by commentor on Huff Post. I love the coverage. I am so proud of this President who is modern and sees the issues through the reality of today. I am ambivalent about two terms, not because of any lack of faith in him, but, because I do not know how much more the Opposition can do.

    India is beautiful, the people are beautiful. I love that my President is a man of the world, is knowledgeable about all cultures, appreciates them, and can relate to them. Thank you for this site.

      Welcome TJ, thanks so much for dropping in! I understand your feelings about the opposition, but I hope they’ll be shown up for what they are over the next two years: destructive and pointless.

      I agree, India looks stunning, and the people seem so gracious. A beautiful country.

    I also wonder if President Obama wouldn’t have greater influence outside of the Presidency. But I want him to succeed as President because if he succeeds America will succeed, and besides I unapologetically love this man. In general Americans, I believe underestimate his abilities, his determination and his genius. They also underestimate, or lack comprehension of what is at stake.
    The powerful and the influential recognize it, thus the level, and intensity of their opposition forces. Perhaps I am over dramatic and simplistic, but the power struggle that is playing out in our country and globally is about the distribution of wealth, power and control landing in the hands of a very few, or more rightfully and more humanely in the hands of the overwhelming majorities of people worldwide. Oligarcy vs Democracy.
    President Obama is facing down the big “guns”. Pray that God keeps his back, as do we.
