Yessir, we are on the cusp, well actually dead in the middle of this “new” America as run by the brilliant! Thankfully these big-brained folks showed up to instruct we Conservatives in how to properly conduct our social, fiscal and governmental business. And lest we forget, the Chief Executive’s main job is to steer foreign policy, and just 7 weeks in The Boy Wonder is taking us to school.
First, let’s return the bust of Winston Churchill given us by the Brits immediately after 9/11. They did so in a show of unity and as a demonstration of fortitude. Churchill was the living embodiment of intestinal fortitude when he and only he stood up and called out the Nazi’s way back in the early 1930’s. And the Brits gave us that bust to show they were with us, and that a “stiff upper lip” would serve us well in the challenges we would have to face.
After the Boy Wonder told them to take back their little sculpture, he had British Prime Minister Gordon Brown for a visit. And PM Brown came bearing gifts aplenty. According to FOX News, PM Brown gave our President “a pen holder fashioned from the oak timber of HMS Gannet, a Navy vessel that served on anti-slavery missions off Africa, a framed commissioning paper for the HMS Resolute, a Royal Navy ship that came to symbolize British-American goodwill when it was rescued by the U.S. from icebergs and given to Queen Victoria.”
“As he headed back home from Washington, Gordon Brown must have rummaged through his party bag with disappointment. Because all he got was a set of DVDs. Barack Obama, the leader of the world’s richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films – a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.”
NPR.org headlined their online story with “Obama’s Gifts to Brown Irk British Media,” and followed in their story with “Iain Martin, a columnist and blogger for the Daily Telegraph, wrote that he found Obama to be rudeness personified toward Britain.” As well Daily Telegraph columnist Martin wrote “Only at the last moment was it agreed that there would be a small press conference, and, I think, it was read as a metaphor for the concern that Obama really just didn’t like having the Brits in town.”
So I have a few questions for my political opposition. How is it Obama can “snub” the British PM, yet all we heard for the last 8 years was how we needed to repair our alliances with Europe? Brown is the head of the “Labour Party” in England. Labour is the main opposition to British conservatives, so Brown is, in effect, a Liberal, yet this is how the new administration treats him? Obama & Brown should be butt buddies, no? According to Wikipedia the Brit Labour Party are Socialist.
Is this another surprise the Big Thinkers have in store for our nation? I mean Obama snubs the Brits, the Brits feel snubbed and the British population is rather displeased, and this is how we “repair” the imagined ills of Bush foreign policy? By outright rudeness to our Mother Country and oldest and strongest ally?
As well, Obama extends an olive branch to the Taliban? Wants stronger ties to Syria, etc? Wants to chat and make nice with the Iranian RatBoy? Gee, I thought only a nation LOSING a war wanted to chat? So if we were attacked by al-Qaeda, and their buddies the Taliban knowingly supplied them and gave refuge, then the Taliban are our enemies as well, and now we extend the olive branch? Am I missing something here?
We practically wiped out the Taliban, yet the Boy Wonder wants to chat with the “more reasonable” elements of the Taliban? So, after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor did Roosevelt want to chat with Hirohito? If he did the history books failed to report such!
To review, His Most Magnificent Countenance, the Lord Boy Wonder, our Messiah, is indeed turning things in a new direction. Chat with our enemies, snub our greatest ally, and just generally treat the Brits as if they are an annoyance. Good choices all, Boy Wonder!
Well friends, the good news is in 20 months we can throw Nancy “Where the f’ing Hell are my G5’s” Pelosi and Harry “This war is lost. This war is lost” Reid out on their Liberal little backsides. And then we can look forward to November 2012.
Based on what the first 7 weeks have offered we have 201 more weeks of fiscal ignorance, foreign policy ineptitude and the Boy Wonder walking around repeating what Rahm Emanuel whispers in his big ears, or better yet, repeating what the teleprompter tells him to say.
This is what happens when we let the patient’s run the damned asylum, and based on what we’ve seen so far, these people are the patients and they are most assuredly working to turn my nation into an asylum. Add in a politically inept and inexperienced Chief Executive who is really just a glib Boy Wonder figurehead and see what we have in store for the near future? Just 201 more weeks friends. Hang on . . . .
