    Why is he wasting time going to Australia. I'm wondering if Rupert Murdoch's personal bitch–Hugh Jackman, will try to push his way into a meeting so he can tell the world he took part in a high-level meeting with President Obama. Personally, if I had the authority, I'd tell our president to skip that leg of the trip

      I can only assume that you have no current knowledge of past or present geo-political machinations at all. There had been the intent for the US President to visit Australia as the country is considered a valuable ally in the Asia Pacific region. Unfortunately previous trips had to be postponed so things like oils spills and health care packages could be tended to.It is actually expected that much closer military ties including rotating US Marines through bases in the countries north shall be announced. Personally I would have forgone the visit of the likes of Kim Kardashian and Sarah Jessica Parker down here for the Melbourne Cup (worlds richest weight for age horse race for the uninitated) before suggesting other important visits not take place. As for Rupert...... he is one of yours now.....a naturalised American or as we call ya down here "seppo's" (rhymes with septic tank) and I can only assume that Hugh holds dual citizenship as well. It might prove to be time well spent doing some reading first before resorting to stupid remarks reinforcing the idea that some of the rest of the world has, that some Americans are none too bright.
