'You... you... Buddhist!'

President Barack Obama wrapped up his Asia travels Sunday with a visit to Kotoku Temple in Kamakura, a former Japanese capital city around an hour from Tokyo.

The temple is famous for its "Great Buddha," a monumental bronze statue of Buddha in a seated position that dates from around 1252.

Will there be any blowback from Republicans following the President's temple visit? He can only hope so, as it followed his visit to the world's largest Muslim country, where a certain percentage of Americans believe he was born.


Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
