WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 (AP) - U.S. President Barack Obama showed willingness Thursday to visit the atomic-bombed city Hiroshima during his meeting with visiting Hiroshima Mayor Tadatoshi Akiba.

Akiba, who met Obama at the White House with around 230 members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, requested Obama to visit Hiroshima. The president responded, "I would like to come," although he did not elaborate, Akiba told reporters in Washington after the meeting.

The Hiroshima mayor also suggested that he expects Obama to visit his city in November when Japan hosts the summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Yokohama.

How many apology tours will that make? He is not my President when he acts this way.

"We're sorry that we ended the war quickly instead of having to firebomb all of your cities and kill all of the survivors in bloody hand-to-hand combat. I would also like to apologize for the past 65 years of peace and prosperity."

In a similar vein, he could visit Appomattox and apologize for freeing the slaves.

What a tool. Under no circumstances should Obama be allowed to make a speech from Hiroshima.

Nothing needs to be done here in America.

Obama: "Yes, America was wrong not understanding Japanese culture."

"Japan had every right for the sneak attack on our Navy on September 11.... Um, December 7th."

The Big Fool is a compulsive apologizer/straw-man blamer. Typical of a narcissistic personality.

Not only is the stupid bastard going to apologize for winning World War II, he’s probably going to apologize for our guys shooting back during Pearl Harbor. I can’t stand very much more of this. THE MAN ISN’T AN AMERICAN, and I’m not talking about where he was born.

If he is illiterate enough to apologize to the Japanese for Hiroshima, after all they did in World War II ... words fail me. It seems to me that imperial Japan sowed to the wind and reaped the whirlwind.

I would not be surprised, however, if Obama has no clue.
