i doubt any of the republican candidates would do this...

...just sayin'. Dare I assume? Yes.

As a follow-up to my last post, I failed to recognize that our current president has indeed thrown Asian Americans quite a few bones, including the video above. To his credit, he has shown numerous acts of recognition of the AAPI population, perhaps the most significant being the restoration of the White House Asian American Initiative, after the Bush administration let it die. Immigration topics aside, and whether it's just politics or his personal ties to Asians, I'm going to go out on a limb and say President Obama has already done more than the current Republican candidates will do for the AAPI population, even if it is just recognition.
