It’s nice to know they’re enjoying themselves blowing hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in India while America suffers.
The Obamas are having a grand time in India.
US first couple Barack and Michelle Obama hit the dance floor to a foot-tapping Marathi folk number, joining a group of students at the Holy Name school to participate in symbolic Diwali festivities.
The US President and the First Lady’s engagement for the day started at the Holy Name High School in upmarket Colaba locality in south Mumbai where a group of students entertained them with a cultural extravaganza.
The Obamas, who lit a lamp to mark the celebrations, were greeted by the students in traditional Indian attire as they interacted with the children, shaking hands and posing for pictures. The students were seen gleefully clicking the couple’s photos using cellphone cameras.

The Obamas are bringing 250 U.S. executives including GE chief Jeffrey Immelt and Honeywell’s David Cote, which the U.S. India Business Council says is the largest such delegation to ever accompany a president on a foreign visit. The presidents of six universities, including Georgetown and Duke, are also set to come.
Meanwhile, back in the real world, Americans are suffering…
Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression and possibly is the worst jobs president in US History.

They wanted to fundamentally change America. They did.
The US unemployment rate has not fallen below 9.0% for over a year now. This is unprecedented.
But, Michelle and Barack are having fun in India.
