Obama to begin 9-day Asia-Pacific trip with economic conference

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama begins a nine-day trip through the Asia-Pacific region Saturday with a stop in Hawaii for a weekend economic conference where he will press for progress on a trans-Pacific free trade agreement.

The administration is taking care to highlight the importance of strong Asia-Pacific relations to the president's efforts to create jobs domestically.

    I have to ask all you Obama haters if you honestly believe he's a bad President or if you're just so stuck in your narrow minded ideology that you can't see or hear anything besides what the Faux News pundits tell you. What exactly would Obama have to do for you to consider him a good President as he's kept us from going into another Depression, saved our auto industry, got Health Care Reform, killed our biggest enemies and is still going after the terrorists (you would have put Bush's face on Mt. Rushmore if he did this!), and many, many other accomplishments. So we have an ailing economy and 9% unemployment but this is a global problem, not just the US and it has been coming for many years. There is no way, no matter who is President, that our economy will turn around on a dime and there will suddenly be a job for everyone....isn't going to happen for a long time to come. So, what is it exactly that you don't like about our President????
