Exclamation Obama coming to Canada

Quote:
President Obama will make his first foreign trip since Inauguration Day to Canada, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday.

Gibbs said Obama will travel to Canada Feb. 19 to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

"Canada is a vitally important ally and the president looks forward to the opportunity to speak with Prime Minister Harper, and visit our neighbor to the north," Gibbs said.

Obama has reached out to a host of leaders around the world since taking office, most recently calling South African President Kgalema Motlanthe.
His first foreign trip as president- to Canada.

I believe this is just part of the tradition between the two states.

it's because he said something against NAFTA during the campaign and now he wants to make it up and he spoke to some Canadian economic people and softened his position on NAFTA.

Nope, it's typically tradition b/w the two states that the first visit to a foreign state is to Canada. Happened with Clinton, Bush (2x) and now Obama.

I doubt they even get talking about NAFTA in this meeting.

I know I am going to get a lot of hate for saying it but here it is... I am not that impressed by Obama... sure, he is better then most US presidents and compared to Bush he is awesomely great but he is still, for my taste anyway, conservative and religious Washington insider... he is not this great free thinking liberal in a worldly sense.

I would argue that Arnold Schwarzenegger is bigger liberal then Obama... and Arnold Schwarzenegger Republican governor... go figure.

meh....like i said, lets see how his policies will affect us. I think his story is a great one for america...Times seem like they will change......but will it cost us?

If they start buying only american and taking jobs back to the US, i'd like to see what the hardcore Obama fans will think of him...

Protectionist policies are easily the stupidest thing America could put in place right now. IMO they'd have to make Canada exempt because we're such important trading partners, but shit is going to go down if the States decides it will only buy American.

i would offer to pay for a cab. it will be very tough for you to get through, and if you do it will be a traffic nightmare.
