    Yes. You see Obama coming over there to help and build relations. I see it as Obama going here you want money that the American people worked hard for and could be using for **** they need but instead we are giving it to you even though we are debt. We should stay out of the affairs of other countries.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yep, this is much to do about nothing.

    Yeah but your perception and reality aren't exactly aligned completely.

    Funny how the right never complained about Bush and his trips...

    After all it cost the US taxpayer billions for him to visit Baghdad and Kabul....
