    Welcome to Pittsburgh. Ask them to bring some cash to help our Dem-destroyed City & Allegheny County finances.

    That's just great. The host country is being run by someone destroying the U.S. exconomy and by extension a lot of the world's economy and they're going to have an economic summit here...

    Maybe Demjanyuk can host a conference on human rights and how to prevent genocides.

    Well, it can't possibly be worse than the disaster that the last G-20 was. Just keep Biden away or I'll have to eat my words.

    I hope some economic solutions come out of it. With this President, I'm sure there will.

    Obama and Geitner will be leading a session called "Ruining Your Country's Economy in 5 Easy Steps" Maybe if we're lucky Obama will apologise to the other members for America being at the forefront of the global economy. Yes, we are meanies!

    Yes, but just like in the White House,he will not take questions from anyone who has not been screened by his handlers. He proved worthless as a president and is not worth listening to now.

    I wonder how much THIS meeting will cost our country??

    Obama is the ATM-in-chief. Need money? Call Obama. Already he has promised over $50 BILLION in foreign aid including:

    $1 Billion to Palestine (Hamas needs money to fund terrorism)
    $100 Million going to Pakistan (Hillary PROMISES it won't go to terrorists)

    More money to: Jordan, Kenya, South Africa, Mexico, etc.

    WORST PRESIDENT EVER!

    That's just wonderful!!! I hope Obama helps these other countries just like he's helping our country – NOT – He was just here where I live (Las Vegas) and he could have helped us but he chose not TOO!!!
    He could have met with our gov – but than again chose NOT to. He really has hurt our ecomony and all he cares about is his celebtity status!!!
    way to go pres!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ---------------------------------
    President Obama is helping other countries such as sending $ 1 Billion to Palestine and $ 100 million to Pakistan. Of course, I am sure there’s more. Bottom line, it’s the money that we don’t have. So, how is President Obama helping our economy?
