Obama “snubs” England’s PM


According to the (London) Telegraph Obama snubbed the UK PM because he was “too tired” to show proper respect. Hmmm… Our CLOSEST ally in the world, the “home country” to most of the USA, that England of Shakespeare who said, “This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England, …”

Why? He was tired from wrestling with the worries of the depression in the USA. (There! Someone has finally called it what it is!) See

for the complete review. Mostly, the Telegraph is saying that maybe we have the wrong man in the wrong place when he is “too tired” to meed the head of his closest ally in the world. Maybe he would have had more time if Gordon Brown was a the “right” color or represented an African nation or one of the Muslim nations. Maybe… Or maybe Michelle is just keeping him too busy. Who knows?

Whatever the reason, he needs to straighten out his priorities and show the proper respect for a Prime Minister from a nation who has always supported the USA. Maybe we DID get the wrong man in office here….

  1. The gift between heads of states are normally considered a gift to the nation. Therefore, Obama has not insulted the PM with his 25 DVD’s, but 65m people. On the plus side, we know only too well that when you elect a leader, it is to lead and govern the country, but they can never, nor should they ever claim to “speak for the people”. I think Obama is punch-drunk from the esteem in which he is being held, with people falling overthemselves to get an ‘audience’ with him…but, it is because he promised change, a new era…not because he has delivered anything tangible. He needs to get a grip, the people of America have bought into hope, they have trusted him, now he must deliver. Talk is cheap, it is action that counts.

  3. Obama is never tired when entertaining his “most favored friends” like Stevie Wonder, Oprah winfrey, and his Ugandan friends. He is never tired when he appears on Jay Leno show or when he goes to see his Hollywood friends. He is never tired when he wants to speak and be friendly with Iran or his other Muslim friends.

    You could see where his priorities are. His actions speak for himself.

    But you’re right, people are falling over themselves to worship him.

    They DID get the wrong man in the office!…

  4. No, he is not punch-drunk. he is giddy at the thought of social change. It is no secret academics and those involved with community organization want to create social equality not by raising everyone higher, but by bringing down the wealthy. For many of them, they have a chip on their shoulder. They view wealth as evil–and this includes anyone making comfortable in the eyes of the poorest. They think by bringing down the rich, they will even the playing field so all can get ahead. The problem is, the top 3% of wealth earners shoulder 90% of the taxes (depending on the state/city) so by destroying them you destroy the economy. At that point everyone is equal and must rely upon the government. It’s one way to bring about social equality and change. While everyone will be provided for (minimal), freedom to choose is gone and the freedom to learn from the consequences of your mistakes to make your self better is also removed. For this reason socialism never produces great nations because the fact is pain and discomfort is really weakness leaving the body or society.

    Or, Yes, if punch drunk means you have been hit more than you can rationally take so you laugh as your last-resort defense mechanism. This is a man that is in over his head. Remember, Obama has never run a business, has no prior executive experience, spent most of his life in academia and then as a community organizer where the prevailing philosophy is business has destroyed the life of those in poverty. In short he is in over his head, he is the quintessential political virgin, the 46 year-old political virgin
