CEA's Shapiro on International Guests
Moreover, President Obama has the ability to change the tone and extend the welcome mat to international visitors. I urge him to make a high-visibility appearance at a Las Vegas or Orlando trade show (Mr. President, please consider this an invitation to participate in the International CES in January 2010).
Our nation remains the greatest country on the earth. But we need a dose of humility. We have to make people feel welcome if we want them to come here.
