    If this trip can help the businesses of America, help our economy, and bring us jobs, then please tell me why should he have stayed home? Regardless what is happening else where, he still have to continue to be President of the United States. We all know what the criticizing from the right is all about, and we even get the criticizing from the left. My President still have my support.

    I thought he was visiting Christ the Redeemer? No pictures yet or is it closed to the press.

      I believe they had to reschedule that visit to tonight because he needed to have a Libya update earlier today.

    I would just like to know how they secure all those people and the living places to ensure his safety? I send up prayers every day for this man and his family.

      I was wondering the same. Some of those people were up on the roofs, where the snipers are supposed to keep watch… The world needs this man alive, well and healthy.

        Yes, I didn’t see any snipers but maybe there are in cognito. I think they will show the pictures of Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: Cristo Redentor)later. I can’t remember any trip they haven’t shown a visit of cultural importance.

    Yes, I support my President!! He makes us proud in a good way. My prayers go forth for his safety, his physical strength, his wisdom in taking care of his duties to our nation and the world. We are so blessed to have such a man leading this country at this time. With so many people looking for work, a place to stay, our servicemen and women serving us all over the world, and he has to be the Commander-In-Chief at the same time, is a tremendous job. I lift our President and our First Lady up in prayer daily. I am elated to see so much love given to him when he is visiting other countries. I only wish that we could see more of it in our own country, but we shall move forward with courage, steel in our backs, and love in our hearts.

      ” I only wish that we could see more of it in our own country”

      We won’t because they are just plain unequivocally “jealous”. As good as this man is there is no other name for it. That and a bit of racism mixed in for good measure.

    Oh that video is just adorable, those teen girls and the wee one at the end (she reminded me of my little granddaughter.. talking so fast and excited). I love this- I am so grateful our first family is being treated so kindly and respectfully.

    I remember when I visited Christ the Redeemer some years ago, it was magical but although we went in the middle of the day in the height of summer it was freezing cold. i love the Obama’s but the haters will hate regardless so leave them.
