OBAMA HEADS TO EUROPE TO SELL HIS AGENDA…

Pitchman Obama starts his European tour with his posse of 500, and will probably get a better reception than he got from us over his stimulus agenda.  I only hope he runs into Daniel Hannan, UK Member of European Parliament.  I’d love for Mr. Hannan to give Obama the same talk as he gave to Prime Minister Gordon Brown, because Brown and Obama are both guilty of devaluing their countries.  I’d also like to see CNBC’s Rick Santelli stand beside him with his "Are you listening, Obama?" rant.  This would pack a one-two punch, and one which he deserves.  In preparation, I’m sure Obama’s team grilled him on both sides, charring his brain to ready him for any opposition he may come up against.  They are probably hoping that the Obama charisma will spin him out of any negative corner, but his star will not shine forever…

Obama Heads to Europe to Pitch Economic Plan

WASHINGTON — In his first presidential trip across the Atlantic, Barack Obama hopes to convince European allies that his young administration can improve the global economy and the United States’ image.
 

Obama’s eight-day, five-country trip begins early Tuesday, sending him to meet with European leaders who split with the United States over the war in Iraq and the treatment of suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay under President George W. Bush.

First up: a summit of the world’s economic powers in London to address the global financial meltdown that has defined the first two months of Obama’s administration.

"The president and America are going to listen in London, as well as to lead," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

The main event in London is Thursday’s summit on the global financial crisis among the Group of 20 wealthy and developing nations. Together, they represent 85 percent of the world’s economy.
Obama planned to meet with leaders of Britain, Russia and China — major players in the U.S. financial system. He also scheduled meetings with leaders of India and South Korea while in London.

But money isn’t the sole agenda item. Obama plans to attend international summits on urgent topics, including the downward-spiraling fight against terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He also will make his first stop in a Muslim nation, Turkey.

Wildly popular around the globe but relatively inexperienced in foreign affairs, Obama also will squeeze in a Buckingham Palace audience with Queen Elizabeth II, joined by his wife, Michelle.

He will deliver a speech in France on the trans-Atlantic relationship, and an address in Prague on weapons proliferation. And he will host a round-table session with students in Turkey.

When Obama went to Europe last summer — he was a senator seeking the presidency — he was received like a rock star. His welcome this time is expected to be no less enthusiastic.

Since taking office, Obama has made down payments on several campaign promises that had endeared him to Europe, such as addressing global warming and moving to end the Iraq war and close the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay.

Obama isn’t doing too badly with his constituents at home either. In Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday, 66 precent of respondents said they approve of the way he is handling his job. Sixty percent said they approve of the way he is handling the economy.
