Obama touts cooperation with Asia, calls out China

Honolulu (CNN) - U.S. President Barack Obama ended his trip to this weekend's Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit stressing job creation - calling the Pacific region vital to such economic growth, even as he needled China to do more.

Obama addressed reporters early Sunday evening, touting progress on several fronts in the Hawaii talks with leaders of 18 other nations and representatives from two others. Specifically, he referenced steps to increase trade, spur innovation, promote "green growth" and ease barriers to travel and interactions.

    With Obama as your President, how any honest US citizens in their right mind can want somebody else, JUST BOGGLES MY IMAGINATION. Your politics is just pathetic, very pathetic.

    He may give good speeches......but he is a total disappointment as President of the US.
