What is Behind Obama’s Bizarre Snub of PM Brown and the UK?

I haven’t posted on it yet, but I’ve been watching Obama’s bizarre snubbing of U. K. PM Gordon Brown in wonderment. He even gave the PM a cheap DVD set as a gift. I’m no fan of Gordon Brown, of course, but in the world of diplomacy the U. S. president just doesn’t treat the U. K. Prime Minister the way Obama has.

I haven’t mentioned his shabby treatment of a bust of Winston Churchill.

I’m honestly aghast. Obama’s conduct as president keeps diving below even my low expectations. A President of the United States just does not act this way.

There is much speculation about concerning what is behind Obama’s bizarre anti-diplomacy toward our long-time ally. There is even a brouhaha about a column in the Telegraph suggesting Ms. Obama is behind it all.

I don’t presume to know what is behind Obama’s brazen and bizarre snubbing of the U. K. I can only look on in open-mouthed wonder.

Certainly as far as the Epstein Churchill bronze there is more to this than meets the eye. It was loaned personally to President Bush as he expressed his admiration for Churchill whose mother was American.

I don't think anyone has taken offence in the UK [with the exception of a few journalists who bellyached when the original loan was made] Brown was treated with respect being the first European leader to visit President Obama and very pleased to be invited to address Congress.

I'm embarrassed for my country... what an incredibly tacky and offensive gift...
