      President Barack Obama on Thursday brought his jobs message to the Magic Kingdom, a choice of locale that drew instant Republican jabs at him for living in “Fantasyland.”


      He selected Disney World in Orlando to highlight its importance as a prime tourist destination, and he struck an optimistic note as he stood before the Cinderella Castle and unveiled plans to boost tourism and create up to 1 million jobs over the next decade.






        “This is the land where we do big things,” Obama said. “I want America to be the top tourist destination in the world. Tourism is the number one service that we export. … That means jobs. More money spent by more tourists means more businesses can hire more workers. It’s a pretty simple formula.”


        A simple formula, but an important one for Obama’s reelection chances: He won Florida in 2008 but faces a greater challenge there in 2012. The Sunshine State has been battered by the recession and housing crisis, and unemployment hovers above the national average at about 10 percent.


        White House press secretary Jay Carney insisted Wednesday that Obama’s trip to Disney World was not a political calculation. “It’s obvious when you’re making a tourism and travel announcement that one of the premier sites of the U.S. tourism industry is Orlando, so it seems pretty self-evident that you would do that,” Carney said

          I thought his trip there was justified.. He was just meeting with those who voted for him in 08. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and the host of other characters that ACORN registered for Obama.

          Obama in the magic kingdom, by his own EO to promote foreign tourism, exactly since he has been in office Americans cannot go to the magic kingdom. While Obama was at the Magic Kingdom he signed another EO to stop the tea cups from spinning because they were not all green.
