    Yurt, I'm really surprised by this thread. You are an intelligent person, and I know that you probably know the answer to this. The answer is Yes, Obama did accomplish something over there. He made all the dems feel warm and fuzzy over here. :lol:

    It was a photo op, nothing more, grandstanding. All the deals are made in advance. Its the same in every administration, they negotiate all this stuff way before. What we saw was simply a bit of show. Obama knew the outcome otherwise he would not of gone. But to be fair thats how our leaders play the game.

    He went over met the heads of state, showed his face to the public, patched up relations a bit, set the foundation for the future, stopped by Iraq to cheer the troops, and got a committment of a trillion for the IMF. What was he supposed to accomplish?

    Yep. 40,000 American casualties, many times more Iraqi dead, a trillion in debt for a mistaken war.

    Bush got things done, and fucked up.

    We'd be much better off if he'd gotten nothing done.

    so he didn't get anything he wanted...

    who did he patch things up with? the king of saudi? cheered the troops....ok, that is not an accomplishment....

    obama alone asked for that trillion for developing countries?

    at the G20...they hailed a "new world order"...great, bush I would be proud...

    and your last question really says it all....he didn't accomplish anything that really helped america...he showed his face....he campaigned -- again
