Standing in front of Cindarella Castle at Walt Disney World this afternoon, President Obama will call for a national strategy to make the United States the worlds No. 1 travel and tourism destination.
It may be a small world, but tourism is big bucks. International tourists spent an estimated $140 billion in the U.S. last year. (Full disclosure: Disney is the parent company of ABC News.)
Whether they come here to Disney World to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse or elsewhere tourists from emerging economies such as China, India and Brazil are their own mini stimulus packages dropping up to $6,000 per tourist.

President Fraud speaks with forked tongue.
I’m sure all those winter snowbirds are happy about their Disney vacations being interrupted.
Well he is making America into a Turd world destination.
Pray for America
Whats new? He’s been in Fantasyland since 2008. Now just literally.
Com on kids! Let’s sing about the fake president:
It’s a small mind after all. It’s a small mind after all....
Presidential candidate Obama only won Florida in the general election due to the swing vote in the I-4 corridor between Tampa-Orlando-Daytona.
Without securing this swing vote again, Obama has 0% chance to win Florida against any immigration-friendly Republican candidate.
This is a campaigning tour being put on the taxpayers’ credit cards.
Only folks who can afford to take their family to the rodent capital are foreigners.
Tourism...Isn’t that Greece’s big industry? Great model to follow.
I bet while he is there Zero doesn’t even have the cajones to confront Micky as being the impostor.

Isn’t tourism the number one jobs opportunity in assorted banana republics? Don’t banana republics have tin pot dictators for life? Do all other affirmative action hires have the same ‘hey mon, its not my job’ attitude as Obama? What a buffoon.
So, what is his message? Since we’re all unemployed we might as well take a vacation? Where do I sign up for my vacation stimulus check?
Fitting place where Dumbo can present his ideas in Fantasyland.
The president has a Mickey Mouse jobs plan.
He’s already given Amnesty to millions of Mexican Tourists, so why not CONTINUE promoting the “come to America; we have Los Freebies to give you....”
