Obama insults our allies

Aparently the Obama administration does not give a damn about our oldest ally in the world. Since he blithely and hugely insulted them during the recent visit of Britains Prime Minister. *Facepalm the stupidity and sheer arrogance and thoughtlessness here is mindboggling.
snipped from the story:

"It is well understood that visiting diplomatic delegations come bearing gifts and gift giving is returned in like fashion by the host country. It is an ages old human practice in diplomacy after all. Usually the gifts are valuable, representative of the products of the nations involved, or at least symbolic of the history of those nations.

For his part, PM Brown gave two symbolic gifts and one that expressed national pride. Brown came bearing a pen holder carved from the timbers of the sister ship of that which gave the wood to create the famous "Resolute Desk," the desk that has been in America's charge since 1880. He also gave Obama the framed commission for that famous ship, the HMS Resolute. His third gift was a seven-volume biography of one of England's greatest leaders, Winston Churchill.

So, what did President Obama give the British PM? 25 movies on DVD. Yeah, that's it. Brown gives a symbolic gift like the pen holder fashioned from a famous British warship and Obama responds by sending a staffer to WalMart to pick up a few quick movies.

How thoughtful. Or not."

Inconcievable! However it gets worse....

What may not be widely publicized is Brown is blind in one eye and only has about 30% of his other. He's also not a fan of movies. *headdesk*

Snipped from the article:

"Not to be out done in tastelessness by her husband, Michelle got into the act, too. Mrs. Brown came bearing two outfits for the Obama girls from Topshop, one of Britain's trendiest and expensive women's wear retail outlets.

In return, Michelle apparently had a staffer run down to the White House gift shop and grab two toy Marine One helicopter models for the Brown's boys.

Class all the way, huh?"


More snippage

"All of this is on top of the snub of the Brits that Obama tossed off immediately upon entering office. One of his first official acts was to summarily return to the Brits the generous gift of the most famous bust of Winston Churchill that has sat in the Oval Office since the attacks on 9/11."

None of this seems to have been covered by the Main Stream Media in the U.S. Now THERE'S a shock.

Here's the link to the whole article:

I wonder who The Messiah is going to insult next?
