Well, if in Japan just 'seken banashi' (chitchat), no serious talks over politics/economy/history...!

Reminisce over the 1959 Chicago White Sox.

Health Care in the U.S.! The news is not enough for me, so I'd like to ask him directly what's happening. ...Or just have a cup of cofee with him and talk about nothing in particular. I don't know if he's the greatest president ever, but he seems like such a nice guy, haha.

I would ask him if he's ever seen the white Pele !

I will assume that this question is made with regard to US-Japan relations. If that is the case, I would like to talk to President Obama about the need to have Japan sign the Hague Convention regarding the kidnapping of children. Indeed, I would impress on the President the importance of forcing Japan to act on this issue. Moreover, I would suggest that he give Japan a simple and nonnegotiable ultimatum. Either Japn sign the treaty or face the consequences, namely, punitive measures regarding the rights of Japanese nationals to travel to/reside in the United States.

I would basically like to take him for a drink at one of the night clubs and chat on a personal level, although I would prefer someone who has different views from mine like George W. and dabate issues while sipping on our favorite drinks all night.

I'd ask the Pres to go surfing with me so that the Secret Service would force the other Shonan surfers - especially the ones with bad attitudes - to keep 500 meters away. We could talk about how we could bring world peace by taking over the world.

Seriously, I would talk to him about education and the lessons (good and bad) to be learned from how it's done in Japan. The only way for Americans to lift themselves out of their quagmire of poverty, crime, and drugs is to give everyone a decent education and provide decent role models.

I would ask him to tell me in person why he skipped visiting Kenya.

one2one, it you follow the news you will get the answer. Kenya government is very corrupted and justice is yet to be done about the killings during their last election. And the Obama administration is very harsh to those system. Usually, American presidents start their tours in Africa by Senegal. He did skip Senegal as well, because of their corrupt government.

Here is what I will ask him: Why haven't you locked up Bush for:

Waging illegal wars and killing millions of innocent kids Bringing the world economy to its knees Ordering torture which violate Geneva convention Not being shift to help New Orleans during Katrina

"What it was like for him to be born in Kenya"

Ness, according to Obama's birth certificate, he was born in Hawaii.

I'd like to ask him when he and the Democrats are going to stop wasting the taxpayers' money, and when he's going to stop dithering on sending the troops that his military commanders and his secretary of defense have requested to Afghanistan.

I'd ask him why won't you release your medical records, college transcripts and live birth certificate? What are you hiding from us American voters?

Please, ban unplanned outsourcing to cheap labor countries in name of globalization.

Make some strict rules to stop misuse of H1 Visa.

How many American's are working in China and in India on working visa?

How many Chinese and Indians are working in America on H1 visa?
