Obama Jokes the GOP Wants Him to Get Lost

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is joking that Republicans would like to see him get lost in the Amazon.

Obama made the crack Saturday in the Oval Office after a meeting with Brazil's president.

Obama said he would like to visit Brazil and thinks he should visit Rio de Janeiro, where he understands the beaches are nice.

Then he said he would love a trip to the Amazon. He joked that he suspects the Republican Party would like to see him travel through the Amazon and maybe get lost for while.

Obama has faced growing criticism from Republicans over his budget proposal. They say he spends, taxes and borrows too much.
