US President Barack Obama speaks at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, on January 19, 2012 to unveil a strategy that will significantly help boost tourism and travel, an important sector in the US economy.

POTUS has a very good reason to like Mickey Mouse. President Obama is visiting Disney World in Florida Thursday, announcing that he plans to expand and accelerate visa-application processing for countries like Brazil, India, and China, saying that “America is open for business.” This will make it easier for international travelers to head to the states--and more money for the nation to get "Americans back to work." He also opened his speech like this: “It’s always nice to meet someone who has bigger ears than me.” Can Mickey expect to be the next chief of staff?
