I scream, you scream, we all scream for Obama

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (R) speaks during a bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron on the sidelines of the G8 summit on June 17, 2013.

Leaders of some of the world's richest countries meet in Northern Ireland today for the annual G8 summit. High on the agenda will be the conflict in Syria, the issue of tax avoidance and a U.S.-EU free trade deal.
