Obama Cuts Short Latin American Sight-Seeing Tour

You can't make this stuff up.

Barack Hussein was planning to tour some Mayan ruins? No doubt that'll play well across the shores of Tripoli, to say nothing of the American midwest. At New York Times, "
Obama to Head Home a Bit Early":

Obama March Madness

For Mr. Obama, who was traveling with his wife, daughters, mother-in-law and a family friend, Wednesday was to be mainly a day of sight-seeing — to Mayan ruins and to the cathedral where Archbishop Oscar Romero is buried, on the anniversary of his assassination during the nation’s civil war of the early 1980s.
And at USA Today, "Global crises overshadow Obama's 2011 agenda":
President Obama returns to the White House today after a six-day trip to Latin America that was intended to focus on jobs, trade and the economy — but the world just wouldn't cooperate.

A partial nuclear meltdown in Japan, a U.S. military operation in Libya, a looming budget showdown in Washington and more have overwhelmed Obama's agenda, raised risks for the nation's fragile economic recovery and opened him to criticism from not only the emerging Republican presidential field but also some congressional Democrats.

Welcome home, Mr. President.

I hear he canceled a planned visit to some Mayan ruins. I guess he can just come home and look at his legacy for the same effect?
