The Japanese leader will meet with the president next week at the White House to discuss a wide range of issues, including North Korea and the global economic crisis.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Japan Tuesday in her first stop on her Asian tour, calling on that country to increase its own stimulus spending as it faces its worst economic crisis in decades.
This guy is so smart that he will make Obama look like Buckwheat.
Too Late now.
They have beein pumping money into the economy in Japan since the mid 90's. It has not helped. They have recession based on debt.
Oh well maybe Barack can team him some basketball skills.
Obama is doing what he does best.
IMPROVING OUR STANDING ABROAD AND AT HOME.
I am honored to call him my president.
Wow. I hope no one from other countries read the responses here as it displays a level of deep and profound ignorance, racism and stupidity. People should be ashamed of themselves. I am glad the stimulus includes some money for education. I hope that it begins to work because what is displayed here is atrocious and reprehensible.
Culture Shock, you may not be the dumbest poster here, but you'll do until he shows up.
You are welcome Mr. Prime Mister.
