How could one “man” tick off 18 Nations or Organizations?

The American people  can now more readily ‘understand’ why the Obama’s were omitted  from the guest list to the Royal wedding in April!  This  is a very sobering article.  Our handling of relationships  with the Britons over the oil spill don’t help  either.

From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign  Relations


“Let me be  clear: I’m not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the  American people.  I holiday in their country regularly, and  hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States .  But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems  hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to  stop Obama’s reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on  his allies on every issue.”

One of the most poorly kept  secrets in Washington is President Obama’s animosity toward Great  Britain , presumably because of what he regards as its sins while  ruling Kenya (1895-1963).

One of Barack Hussein Obama’s  first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston  Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11.  He  followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his  first state visit, the usual joint press conference with  flags.

The president was “too tired” to grant the leader of  America ‘s closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British  journalists.

Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts  for Mr. Brown and the Queen. Columnist Ian Martin described his  behavior as “rudeness personified.” There was more rudeness in  store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations  in September.  “The prime minister was forced to dash through  the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face  time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down  meeting were rejected by the White House,” said London Telegraph  columnist David Hughes.  Mr. Obama’s “churlishness is  unforgivable,” Mr. Hughes said.

The administration went  beyond snubs and slights last week when Secretary of State Hillary  Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President Cristina  Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina ‘s  specious claim to the  Falkland Islands , a British dependency  since 1833. The people who live in the Falklands, who speak  English, want nothing to do with Argentina .  When, in 1982,  an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by  force, the British — with strong support from President Ronald  Reagan — expelled them.

“It is truly shocking that Barack  Obama has decided to disregard our shared history,” wrote  Telegraph columnist Toby Young. “Does Britain ‘s friendship really  mean so little to him?”  One could ask, does the friendship  of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?

“I  recently asked several senior administration officials,  separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has  forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in  office,” wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the  Washington Post, on Monday. “A lot of hemming and hawing ensued.”  One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his  contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret.  Another named  German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, “Merkel too  has been conspicuously cool toward Obama.”

Mr. Obama  certainly doesn’t care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has  betrayed on missile defense.  Honduras   and Israel also  can attest that he’s been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful  friend.  Ironically, our relations with both  Israel and  the Palestinian Authority have never been worse.  Russia has  offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama’s abandonment of missile  defense.  Russia and China won’t support serious sanctions on  Iran .  Syria ‘s support for terrorism has not diminished  despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations.  The  reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has responded to  our efforts at “engagement” by deepening its ties to North  Korea .

And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their  contempt for him.

For the first time in a long time, the  President of the United States is actually distrusted by its  allies and not in the least feared by its adversaries.  Nor  is Mr. Obama now respected by the majority of Americans.  Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama’s  relentless efforts to nationalize and socialize health care,  Americans apparently have yet to notice his dismal performance and  lack of respect in the world community. They soon  will.
