    Fiscal cliff looms and the middle east on the verge of all out war. And Obama is in Cambodia? Really?

    Is Cambodia going to lend us money? Stop rockets from hitting Israel?

    It's time for a road trip...
    Having taken care of everything at home the President feels it's
    time to be out and about...

    He needed to take an Asian vacation to relax before he takes his Hawaiian Christmas vacation.

    Are you ADHD? Do you have problems mutlitasking? Did Obama meet with congressional delegations regarding the fiscal cliff? Did they agree in principle? Should Obama ignore Southeast Asia?

    Did the State Department not begin negotiations with Gaza and Israel, regarding a cease fire? Is Israel having problems responding to the rocket attacks? It looks like they're total kicking Hamas ass.

    Visiting a country like Burma, that had, under Obama's watch, got rid of their military junta, and encouraging them to stay on their path to democracy and support of human rights, is a vacation? Perhaps in your pea brain.

    If they already got rid of the junta as you stated, why does he need to go there now? To give them a personal "fist-bump"?

    Since he was in the neighborhood, he wanted to score some buds. Cannot blame him.
