    Obama: "Ummm... 'Abe-what' now?

    If it gets rejected Abe will simply say "it's regrettable, but a domestic issue", and if it's approved he'll say it's proof that he's trying to be responsible and help Japan and the world, etc. It sounds like Abe wants a whole lot from this visit, and is only willing to give some ground -- possibly (I'm sure it will end with a "we'll form a panel to think about it" comment) joining the Hague convention, which will mean nothing without changing domestic law. I notice he hasn't said one peep about the TPP or about the sex-slave issue, and little about his stance on the base issue.

    Expect a LOT of backroom dealing during his time in the US. Hope he took his tummy medicine.

    ABE: Obama-san, situation very dangerous! Chinese want to take our islands. And North Korea and South Korea and Russia and . . .

    OBAMA: Don't worry, my boy. As long as you keep paying the protection money, we'll look after you. Won't we boys?

    Smith. Perhaps you should consider the source of the article. *Reuters

    In any case, Abe doesn't need to get a "nod" from Obama about his economic policy since it was welcomed by his adminstration long time ago (Lael Brainard, the U.S. Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affair)
