Do you remember that in 2009 Obama underwrote and guaranteed $ 2 Million to Brazil, Petrobas, in Rio, for offshore drilling exploration. Not to forget that if any oil were to be found, it will stay in Brazil with no benefit to the US.
According to Dinsh Sousa's book "Roots of Obamam's Rage", this kind of maneuver ties in perfectly with Obama's Neo-Colonialism agenda. Weaken the strong, i.e. the US, so the weaker gains strength, i.e. Brazil.
This sudden upcoming trip to Rio must have significant meaning to Obama. why else would he leave his own country that is in severe trouble, behind? He could concentrate on our economy, he could concentrate how else we can help Japan.
I'm thinking that maybe they found oil in Brazil. Perhaps Obama will even have personal gain in this.
I'm just finding this very peculiar, co-incidental?
