Arriving in India

Live streaming:

India TV News * NDTV * IBN Live

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are scheduled to arrive in India at 11:30 PM ET (tonight) – but you know how it is, Air Force One might have the wind at its back, so they could arrive early – or vice versa!

    The excitement is building up with the Indian media… 🙂

    I’m betting that the Sunday Morning cable shows tomorrow will basically re-air the RWNJ’s Freakshow with Sarah Palin’s crap…but hae ZERO coverage of PBO’s trip to India, and ZERO mention of a historic deal if it went through.

    By his very presence in Delhi on Republic Day, Obama is revisiting the most defining relationship of the 20th century after a period of stagnation,’ says Ambassador T P Sreenivasan.

    okay i had to look this reference up. ‘ Both leaders now sit down for a cup of tea.. Modi himself pouring out the tea for Obama. Nice optics, TV commentators. Real chai pe charcha. ‘

    chai pe charcha is tea and talk, a featured aspect of modi’s campaign. http://chaiwallahsofindia.com/2014/02/chai-pe-charcha-narendra-modis-tea-campaign/

    continuing from hindustan times:

    ‘ At the moment TV reports that India and the US have reached an agreement on the implementation of the civil nuclear deal. ‘

    and…

    ‘ NDTV reports that an agreement has been reached on both the tracking clause and the liability clause — the two main irritants. ‘

    continuing with hindustan times’ live coverage:

    ‘ TV reports: India and the United States have reached an agreement on the implementation of the civil nuclear deal following talks between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi

    NDTV quoting sources reported that president Obama stepped in and withdrew the tracking clause, which empowers the US to track the whereabouts of the nuclear material they supply.

    An agreement has also been reached on the liability clause which requires suppliers in the US to pay full damages in the event of an accident.’

    ‘ there is to be a joint press statement after 4 pm. ‘
    my time conversion calculator thingy indicates it is now 4:10 pm in new delhi. it’s hard to mess it up, so i’m guessing they’re starting late. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

    Missed AF1 arrival in India 😦 , but woke to see ndtv live coverage of the bi-lateral discussion between Presidents Obama and Modi — very animated, both leaders leaning in towards one another with lots of facial expressions and hand gestures — looked like an Italian get-together, LOL.

    Awaiting press conference to announce that the obstacles to the India-US nuclear deal (to allow US private companies to build civilian nuclear power stations in India) have been surmounted, and that PBO will leave India with ANOTHER Presidential accomplishment. (Our despicable MSM is under the delusion that PBO is as lazy as they are, so they ignore the whirlwind of tangible, concrete accomplishments completed in the last two months.)

    Appalled that the US media uses this opportunity to bash President Obama, rather than report on the stunning reception offered by the gracious Indian people. I know that part of their GOP agenda to refuse to let Americans in on a secret the entire world knows but us — how respected our President is by other nations, and how he truly is the Leader of the Free World in their eyes.
