Obama pushes for renewed engagement with Asia

(CNN) - U.S. President Barack Obama began his push for renewed engagement with Asia, seeking to highlight domestic jobs that increased exports to the region would create.

Obama is using the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit - hosted by the U.S. for the first time since the Clinton administration - as a kickoff for a new era in foreign policy focusing on the region.

    Meanwhile under Obozo's watch the Chinese continue to laugh at us all the way to the bank by manipulating their currency, stealing our intellectual property, hacking into public and private sector computer terminals to steal valuable private information which leads to massive losses in jobs and working capital here in the U.S.! I'm sure while he's away as usual from the Oval Office our Barry will be playing some nice golf courses though!
