Obama Comes Home From Asia With Bupkis

Expert: past 10 days have been worst of President Obama’s ‘political life’.  NY Daily News.  Worst days?  So far, possibly. 

“He came back with bupkis [Yiddish for ‘nothing’].”

Obama’s inauspicious 10-day, four-nation trip included a failure to land an anticipated slam dunk free trade agreement with South Korea.

It also included a botched effort to rally Western allies to press China to budge on a monetary policy that threatens to keep the U.S. economy in the tank.

Deflated hope and change. 

“Deflated balloon.”
