This is telling…and sad.
*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 worth reading. We know how other countries feel about us.
Hopefully we can change all this. Now we will see why some of the
other 'friendly' nations really don't like us now. Our handling of
relationships with the Britons over the Gulf oil spill won't help

"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
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.
