With a government shutdown just hours away on Monday, White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Obama still plans to go to Asia this weekend.Well, Obama's handlers have since decided that a trip to Asia would not be appropriate at this time.
"We don't have any changes to announce. We plan to make this trip," Carney told reporters at the White House Monday. "The president, as president, looks forward to and believes it is important to travel to Asia in order to promote our economic interests in Asia and our strategic interests in Asia."
Flip flop, flip flop.
From FOX News:
President Obama has cancelled his trip to Asia next week due to the government’s partial suspension of services.Yeah, Obama can't be going to Asia right now and dissing America while overseas.
A White House statement issued late Thursday night said Obama, who already had cancelled two stops on the four-country tour, would instead stay in Washington to press for a budget bill.
After blaming Republicans for the government slimdown, the statement said Obama “looks forward to continuing his work with our allies and partners in the Asia-Pacific and to returning to the region at a later date.”
It added he was determined “to continue pressing his case that Republicans should immediately allow a vote to reopen the government.”
He needs to be here at home so he can keep bullying and taunting his fellow Americans.
He has to yap about the Tea Party holding the nation hostage and using other incendiary language.
Obama is a terrible president. He's not a good dictator either.
