Obama returns from Asia trip empty-handed amid midterm losses to Republicans

Posted on November 13, 2010


Obama is coming home from his overseas trip pretty much empty-handed.

After watching his party take a beating in the midterm elections, Obama wasn’t able to secure even a symbolic victory on an trip that was expected to give him plenty of opportunities to claim a win.

This certainly was the worst 10 days of his political life,” said Baruch College’s Doug Muzzio.

“Given that he’s not going to be able to get any domestic achievements with the Republicans in control of the House …if he doesn’t do it in foreign policy that’s a big problem for him.

“He came back with bupkis (Yiddish for ‘nothing’).”
