Obama's Entourage

500!

President Obama is now in Britain for the G20 summit. How many people do you think he took with him on the trip? You would think his entourage would include a few of his closest advisors. That would make sense. Of course, he'd need the secret service detail with him. So, if you had to guess...how many? 25, 40 maybe? Or maybe on the out side, 70?

Would you guess 500?  Would you ever in a million freaking years think it would take 500 people to get one, ONE(!!)  freaking man to Canada?!

But Obama isn't just any man apparently, Imperialist, pompous asses require that much attention.
More than 500 officials and staff will accompany the president on his tour this week - along with a mass of high-tech security equipment, including the $300,000 presidential limousine, known as The Beast. Fitted with night-vision camera, reinforced steel plating, tear- gas cannon and oxygen tanks, the vehicle is the ultimate in heavy armoured transport.

I agree this is ridiculous for any person, but out of curiosity, how many people have past president typically brought with them on this sort of trip?
