After insulting Gordon Brown during the British prime minister’s visit this week by ignoring protocol and cheaping out on the traditional gift exchange, the UK media has erupted in outrage.
""Now it's certain that we have a totally Primitive Amateur In The White House !"
The Obama White House has now started to recognize the firestorm the new President created with our closest ally, and wants to assure the Brits that he meant no disrespect. Instead, Obama apparently wants to assure them that he’s simply in over his head and floundering (via Radio Equalizer):
Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been “overwhelmed” by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.
British officials, meanwhile, admit that the White House and US State Department staff were utterly bemused by complaints that the Prime Minister should have been granted full-blown press conference and a formal dinner, as has been customary.
They concede that Obama aides seemed unfamiliar with the expectations that surround a major visit by a British prime minister. …
Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president’s surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.
A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama’s inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to “even fake an interest in foreign policy”. …
The American source said: “Obama is overwhelmed. There is a zero sum tension between his ability to attend to the economic issues and his ability to be a proactive sculptor of the national security agenda.
“That was the gamble these guys made at the front end of this presidency and I think they’re finding it a hard thing to do everything.”

So, have the Brits now realized the naiveté of their Obama fanaticism? Saw on Fox where the Big O is going to fulfill his promise of visiting a Muslim nation during his first 100 days (Turkey). What does he have planned? Shouting "Fuck Allah" during the press conference there?"Because we're a great nation, our challenges seem complex; it will always be this way. But as long as we remember our first principals and believe in ourselves, the future will always be ours." -Reagan

edit: wait, Turkey is a secular nation (at least it's government is secular). Does that mean a country can have a religious foundation without being a theocracy? Does that mean Obama might admit that the United States is a Christian nation? And will the left foam at the mouth if he does?

Barry is not supposed to have to worry about all this crap - his STAFF are supposed to come to him with different options about what to give as gifts. If they didn't do that - they need to be all removed. If they did and he picked the crappy gifts he picked - then he needs to be removed. I certainly hope that America is waking up and realizing what some of us said from the beginning - this guy is a puppet. He's clueless without some one to pull his strings and a teleprompter in front of him.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
