    Perhaps he's going to see if they can ship some jobs or money to the US with all the BILLIONS he and Bush poured into that place in their 'rebuilding' efforts starting in 2003.

    I'm sure the Tan man can find a way to blame Obama for those BILLIONS that are surely adding to our large deficit.
