Pentagon denies 34 ship fleet to guard Obama.

But they're still stripping the coconuts from the trees.

"I will take the liberty this time of dismissing as absolutely absurd this notion that somehow we were deploying 10 percent of the Navy -- some 34 ships and an aircraft carrier -- in support of the president's trip to Asia," Morrell said.

"That's just comical. Nothing close to that is being done," he said.

That is correct. The Obamafuhrer has not requisitioned 34 warships for his show of force...

He wants a full 35.

:-)

(Why does this clown remind me of the theme from "Movin' On Up?"?????

Geoff Morrell was a former ABC reporter, was heavily involved in the Clinton campaign as well as being a reporter for WBBM in Chicago. So this time he made an "exception" to comment on National Security. How nice.

So the Naval spokesperson thinks that the statements are 'comical'.... moreso than having coconuts taken doen from trees?
Always room for one more bozo on the bus.

BTW - about the Kenyan's hamster tunnel- if ANY one of the entourage had ANY sense of humor, they would drop a handful of either corn meal or athlete's foot powder in the tunnel as the worshipful group was passing through. Heh.
Or at the very least, someone could shout, "Hey! Do I smell ricin?" then fall and start thrashing about. But alas - they would only think it was funny if it happened to Bush.
Then again - Bush, for all his faults, was never so ball-less as to cower in a taxpayer purchased tunnel.

"It's 27 ships."

Ah, yes...the ol' 'plausible deniability' ploy! I've seen it used many times throughout my career.

Define "close" in regard to "nothing close to that is being done."

A huge, well-armed trade mission to India that Ozero says will fund American jobs. Staying at the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai India that was attacked by Islamic terrorists from our supposed ally in the war on terror, Pakistan. Pakistan and India are about ready to nuke each other, and part of the trade deal is to give dual use commercial/military technology to India.
What's the message?

"Screw all you American taxpayers who don't have jobs" was the message I got out of it. The excess of this President is just apalling - has anyone we've had been this bad on personal spending?
