Obama's India trip -- not as expensive as you may have heard?

No, President Obama's trip is not going to cost $200 million a day.

That figure -- first thrown out by a single Indian media outlet and now viral on conservative talk radio -- is wildly, wildly off the mark.

The problem is that the costs for these trips are impossible to determine, for many of the president's expenses would be incurred whether he was visiting India or Atlanta or simply hanging around the White House. Obama's India trip starts an Asian swing that includes South Korea, Indonesia and Japan. More...

Don't miss:
  1. 34 warships sent from US for Obama's India visit!!!
  2. Forty planes and six armoured cars for Obama's visit...
  3. US to spend $200m a day on Obama's Mumbai visit...
  4. No falling coconuts for Obama!!!
