As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Cancels Remainder of Asia Trip

President Obama Thursday cancelled the rest of his trip to Asia, which had been scheduled for next week, deciding against traveling to Indonesia and Brunei as the government shutdown continues.

According to a White House statement, Obama will remain in Washington and bash Republicans instead.

The President made this decision based on the difficulty in moving forward with foreign travel in the face of a shutdown, and his determination to continue pressing his case that Republicans should immediately allow a vote to reopen the government.  Secretary Kerry will lead delegations to both countries in place of the President.

Obama has previously nixed the Malaysia and Philippines portion of his trip.

  1. Obama rather bash Repulicans than offer US apology to Muslim Nation of Indonesia. I think he better stay here. I do not want him making anymore apology tours.

  2. So, he’s staying home to campaign against the Republicans. Tell him to stop the crap and that democrats do not own the healthcare in America. Republicans should also have a say about medical care, why does Obama think that only democrats should control healthcare, We all should have a say in whats going to be our healthcare. What is he, a Nazi dictator? We have to have the healthcare he wants?
    REPUBLICANS, DON’T GIVE IN— BUT MAKE SURE THAT THE CANCER CHILDREN AND WORLD WAR 2 VETS ARE ABLE TO GET TREATMENT AND GO WHERE THEY WANT TO! DON’T LET THESE MEAN DEMOCRATS SHUT DOWN THINGS THAT DON’T HAVE TO BE SHUT DOWN FOR SPITE. C’mon Repubs. grow a backbone finally.
