Another trip ... just another thing to keep his mind off the real problems here in the USA.

Guess he'll also be out of the Country when the news breaks that the Ft Hood Shooter is a confirmed Terrorist.

Obama should take care of the kids who made him as a person of significance to clean the dirty Washington.
In an age of IT he need not travel around the globe to plead/request/ enthuse the people who expects more from him.

Change is there Obama.
Join with us to enthuse the people .

go down in History that you are elected by ill-informed kids in collage and universities and getting attacked by the corporate media.

YOU had tried and failed because you are representing a country which needs war and soups to sip.

"Don't care what he says...look at what he does." That sounds like the DaLIE Lama.

President Obama is the first President with an Asia-Pacific orientation, and understands Asian prosperity is closely related to our own prosperity.
It is good to have him meeting and conferring with leaders in Japan, Singapore, China, and South Korea.
Well said and I think you're right but it won't matter. They'll spin this into a pleasure trip.

What about U.S.Jobs ???? This buffoon should have held a jobs summit his first week in office not 9 months later. O`buma a complete incompetent.
A study in the US has shown that far from creating jobs when they recruit into the military that jobs are lost to the American economy.

LOL! Our Stimulus has been a boon to China's economy!

They even OWN us now!

Obama will have a sore Jaw Bone & knees as he takes "hot lunches" for 3 days straight in China while begging for them to continue Buying our Debt.

If Obama continues on the path of economic destruction, I am less concerned about my grandchildren having to pay the emnormous debt for his extravagance than that they will inherit the freedoms in America and be able to live life as we knew it when they are grown. I truly wish Obama to be impeached and run out of the White House on a rail. He has already caused more harm to the nation than any other President in the last hundred years.

But he hasn't actually done anything of any significance yet. It's when he stops dithering that you need to worry.

Some Chinese school kid who is at the level of knowing geography should ask Obama why are there American military forces in the Phillipines, Okinawa, Guam and Japan.

This will be a good question to improve American relation with China by digging up our hypocricy towards China.

So what's Mr Change coming over here for, to China?

It's easy to explain, the United States Financiers want to tranfer more Jobs from the United States to China.

You mean Obama is the final nail in the coffin for the "Lily White America" of your childhood memory? I can see why you're pissed.

Obama blithering about his jobs summit he’s planning:
“We all know that there are limits to what government can and should do, even during such difficult times,” Obama said in brief remarks that preceded his trip to Asia, which will be dominated by talk about the global economy.
Funny, Obama didn’t say that with his bogus stimulus plan, did he? It was IMPERATIVE that he get the stimulus to give money to his buddies.

And now what else did this blithering idiot say?
"Prosperity around the world is no longer as dependent on American consumption and borrowing, but rather more on American innovation and products," he said.
71% CONSUMER DRIVEN ECONOMY, and he blathers that our prosperity doesn’t hinge on a 71% CONSUMER DRIVEN ECONOMY?

Obama is STILL proving, he nor the democrats have ANY IDEA WHAT TO DO to get us out of this MESS. Obama is proving HE doesn’t have a CLUE what he’s talking about.

A “jobs” summit? Smoke and mirrors by Obama. Wants to make you THINK he is doing something. But what is he doing?

Nothing. Calling for nothing. Not calling for slashing taxes and spending, giving the money back to YOU, the people that EARNED it.

Nope...he’s just gonna have a “summit” to talk about the problems.

Do you STILL think the idiot Obama and the democrats care about you? Hmmmmm?

27 million people on the edge of destitution. Almost a YEAR gone by, and what have they done? Nothing.

What is idiot blathering Obama doing? Calling for a summit. Greaaaaaaaaaat.

Sounds like he doesn’t INTEND to do anything, does it.

Still think Obama is so great? Still think it was a good idea to elect democrats? The polls clearly say NO, it wasn’t a good idea.

2010 is gonna be a blood bath for the democrats.
