I can’t find the video and what is the squirrel? Did he seriously get out without MO and her family tagging along this time?

I'm not sure what all that means.

what is the squirrel?

As I remember from my military language, squirrel is an unimportant person who goes through a lot waste motion to make himself appear to be relevant.

Just go the Japanese language Page (Link Here) (as simply instructed), see the page, you will see a shaded freeze frame photo of Obama in the center, hit the white triangle (arrow) in the center of that, and stream the short video. Your mileage may vary, not systems are the same, and I dont know what you are running, friend.

That was no problem up until about one year ago. Used to be able to link right straight to the Japanese news videos (their direct URLs), so no Freepers would be confused. Now you can only link to the Yahoo! Japan News page that has the LINK to the video. Not too difficult, but not the easiest thing in the world. ;-)

There is no video at that link, there is Japanese language and three links, one of which goes to a few photo stills of Obama. ?

I will try to give still photos, but most of them are just of his wave at the top of the steps.

Also, to everyone, these Japanese URL links are good usually for about 1/2 a day; often with a fast moving event, they might expire even before that.

I will give you a still of "The Squirrel" if I can, as it was seen this afternoon in Tokyo... :-)

At any rate, try this one from a different TV network:

http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/videonews/nnn/20091113/20091113-00000047-nnn-int.html

Starts "The Squirrel" at 00:41 seconds. Although they did not show it as clearly as the other network.

Maybe that is why the Japanese delegation is laughing at the bottom of the ramp at Haneda Airport!

Link might be limited in time.

Please give us your general impression of what you see around you of what japan thinks of Obamas visit, for years now I have valued your opinions, myself being in Alaska I heard some interesting stuff about when Obama landed here yesterday, that just about every republican in office in Alaska had an excuse to not be at Elmendorf AFB when Obama made his re-fueling and PR stop. And again Obama used his “shout out” monologue.

I am watching on our news (FOX) your PM discussing what he wants to talk to Obama about, I am getting the impression that Obama is about to become shark chum.

Obama is doing his “sigh” act, he hates someone else giving a long speech.

Obama is talking about financial crisis, the PM has promised $5billion in aid to Afghanistan, and I think I am seeing some concern in Obamas speech pattern here, he can see the PM as being against Obama in certain areas most notibly about Afghanistan.

Now its a news conference, they are discussing nuclear refueling and such.

The USAF claims the VC-25 (Air Force One) aircraft are in-flight refuelable.

Do you have any idea why The Messiah stopped at Elmendorf to refuel, other than as an opportunity to blather on again?

Thank you.

Personally I think he only stopped here by what he actually said in his speech, and he most pointedly referred to Alaska as the last of 50 states for him to visit.

He knows about his 57 state preference, he also knows its a tradition for any POTUS traveling to Asia to stop in Alaska, I was in Anchoarge when Bill Clinton arrived, I actually was within several hundred feet of his motorcade when it passed by, weirdest thing I ever saw in my life all the escort vehicles, the gunships overhead and the absolute efficiency of it passing by.

I wonder if the squirrel is related to the bunny with the pancake on its head.

To me a squirrel is an annoying little creature that runs into the road, stops, reverses direction, stops again, and reverses again in a state of total confusion and panic.

Then he makes a thumping noise as your wheel runs over him.

I ran over a rabbit once with a loaded concrete mixer once.

Big fat wide red splotch was all that was left.
