Obama consumes Ice Cream, while Americans struggle to pull the economy out of the ditch

Although President Obama, last week, failed to reach a free trade agreement with South Korea and was unable get the G20 leaders to stand behind his criticism of China’s currency policies, that didn't stop him from indulging in one of his favorite pastimes: Eating Ice Cream.

While Americans here at home were focusing their attention on pulling the economy [the car] out of the proverbial ditch, President Obama, while visiting a statue of Buddha in the city of Kamakura - during his trip to Japan over the weekend - indulged himself, not in slurpee consumption, but in some delicious, Japanese-style, green tea [Matcha] ice cream.

In 2009, while visiting Japan, Obama extolled the virtues of Kamakura's Matcha ice cream, telling a Japanese crowd: "When I was a young boy, my mother brought me to Kamakura, where I looked up at that centuries-old symbol of peace and tranquility - the bronze Buddha. [However], as a child I was more focused on the Matcha ice cream..."

According to CNN, it was Obama's mention of Matcha ice cream, or Green tea ice cream, in 2009, "that really endeared President Obama to the locals. They even renamed the ice cream from Matcha to Obamatcha."

One of the town's ice cream vendors said that sales had shot through the roof after Obama mentioned the ice cream in his 2009 speech.

Adds CNN: "President Obama may be taking some hits at home over questions about his [current] policies when it comes to the US economy, But when it comes to ice cream economics in this [Japanese] town, he has single-handedly boosted conditions here."
