A Historic Trip to Asia

 

Since taking office, President Obama has noted that the United States is a Pacific nation — and that Asia will play an increasingly important role in the future of world events. On a historic trip, his fifth to the region, President Obama is making the first-ever visit by a U.S. President to Burma and Cambodia.

 

Before the trip, Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes put together a video to give us an overview of President Obama’s trip to Thailand, Burma, and Cambodia.

Obama’s historic trip to Myanmar stirs up controversy

 

Published on Nov 18, 2012

President Obama’s goal is to improve relations with Myanmar, a commodity-rich country that China also wants as a close ally. But critics say the president has more pressing matters at home, chief among them the fiscal cliff. (November 19, 2012)

 

 

 

 

This criticism is as stupid as all the criticisms of this President have been throughout his historical Presidency. Barack Hussein Obama is not a hand holder of Congress. Congress has a job to do with respect to the fiscal cliff, the President does not stop being President to guide Congress. We The People elected and pay a salary to Congress to do their job.
