    I feel it is a very wise decision to tour these countries. Especially since we owe China 3 Trillion dollars (((3,000,000,000,000,000,000)))

    I do not understand why the Obama Administration does not fully acknowledge that we had an economic train wreck in 2008 and the lagging indicator is the significantly increasing unemployment. Top economists from both parties and Ben Bernanke's Federal Reserve Board all predict unemployment levels will continue or become even higher in 2010 and probably most of 2011. I feel Americans need to know the truth about our economy.

    There's no need for the Obama administration to keep telling us what we already know, and that is the economy tanked back in 2008. People who have been paying attention know what happened to the economy in 2008. We know the economy tanked before Barack Obama became president. President Barack Obama has said that things will get worse before they get better.
