LAKE BUENA VISTA — With a symbol of this swing state's crucial tourism industry as his backdrop, President Obama today declared that "America is open for business" and announced plans to make it easier for foreign tourists to visit the U.S. and pump money into the American economy.

Obama announced that his administration is taking steps to increase international tourism, including processing more visas from China and Brazil.

Isn't that great? There will be more foreign tourists in Disneyworld than Americans. That's pretty much the way it is now. Maybe if the One would help create some jobs, Americans could attend Disney?

Also of note is that Senator Bill Nelson, who's in a tough re-election, didn't attend because he didn't want Obama's negativism to drag his campaign down anymore.

Hey, student visas are so last year. This year, all the cool terrorists will be using their friend Obama's tourist visas.

Didn't much of Disneyworld get shut down for the tourists so Obama could say America is open to tourists?

Ouch! My brain hurts.

I think there is more to be gained by getting the Chinese to realistically value the yuan than in a few Chinese Tourists.

What a baffoon of a President....He costs the country a fortune to fly himself down to Fl to make a speech that could have been made in DC. And in the process shuts down part of Dinsey to announce we need more tourists??? I’m sure Barry will make sure all those Muzzies who want nothing more than to kill Americans don’t have to worry with getting those pesky visas.

We don’t need no steenkin’ manufacturing jobs. And we don’t need no steenkin’ oil pipelines. What we gots, is service jobs. And we want more of those $7/hr. service jobs! And don’t forget all the growth we get from unemployment! /< Barack Obama>

Remember when the MSM complained endlessly about the low paying jobs Bush was creating?

It was a disguised campaign stop. After he left Orlando, he flew to NYC so he can attend a fundraiser tonight.

If Obama can’t sneak them past the Mexican border, he’ll flood Florida with visa overstays. While you’re in America on vacation, vote. What a country! Stay for the year, get to vote in an American presidential election courtesy Barak Obama.

Bill Nelson has is back turned on Obama now but come November, he’ll take every phony voter Obama can get him.

Tourism - just imagine all of the minimum wage jobs he can “create” for Americans. We can haul suitcases, work at gas stations, clean motel rooms, wait tables. Our idiot President wants us to be a nation of serfs to tourists who come from nations where they recognize the importance of working hard and being able to take advantage of real opportunities!

Lower the price of gas”
Wrong—he could increase tourism by resigning. And take all his commie appointees with him.
