    Exclamation From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations

    From The London Daily Telegraph On Foreign Relations

    This is a very sobering article. Our handling of relationships with the Britons over the oil spill won't help either.

    From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations

    Quote:
    "Let me be clear: I'm not normally in favour 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.

    During the election it seemed as though most newspapers in the UK supported Obama.

    Did the Telegraph support him too?

    Is this more supporters' remorse?

    I do not know how anyone could not see it but then again I do not know how anyone could be so far out of touch with reality to vote for him in the first place.

    But, but, but, ... I could have sworn, with Russell Brand's vulgarity laced diatribe to open the 2008 MTV VMAs pleading with America to elect Barack Obama, that all of Europe was united behind the now American President.

    You mean I shouldn't have listened to a British drug and poon fiend?

    During the campaign a friend in Italy was relaying to me how the Italians just loved BO and said it was about time that America got with the rest of the world and of course elect a black president ( of course I dont see any other white european nation with a black president or even any really high officials) 6 months after the election they reversed course and could not beleive that we had elected a communist and how could we be so stupid!!
    As an American this is a wrong place to be, but I sincerely wish every one of our allies would tell BO to take a hike and completey isolate him. all kinds of reasons $$$$$ being the biggest why they would never, can still wish though.

    We need a leader, and Congress, that will treat the rest of the world the way they have ALWAYS treated us. With contempt. I am sick and tired of the whinning Europeans. They always hated us until the friggin' Germans showed up at their doorsteps to kick their asses - oh, we love the Americans now! We need to turn back to, but not completely, isolation. There was a time when we did EVERYTHING for ourselves, we need that back to survive. We need leaders who have the hard-heartedness to carry out this task, but the maturity not to abuse the authority and power they have. (George Washington where are you? We need your kind now.) I don't know if there are any more like that left anymore. Some of the stuff I have read on this forum says we do, but how do we get there from where we are at - thats the big question - its all so complicated anymore. In November I am voting against ANY AND ALL P.O.S. anti-gun bastards that I can because I believe MOST gun owning individuals have a certain maturity and devotion to duty than non-gun owning people. I guess, other than prayer, that is what I can do to help. I really don't think Obama knows how much he is really hated, I don't think he is capable. Or worse, he knows completely and does not give a crap, either way I hope (and feel) that he is on his downhill slide.

    What we need to do is STOP LISTENING TO EUROPE FOR ADVICE ABOUT OUR OWN POLITICAL LEADERSHIP. *seethe* *seethe*

    I feel better now.

    We need to ditch this idiocy of free trade and return to a rationally set tariff system, especially including tariffs on goods manufactured by companies/conglomerates which outsource jobs. We need to make for ourselves again. We need to employ ourselves again.

    Gear a lot of it to the unemployment rate. If the unemployment rate is under 4%, then some tariffs can come down, because that's an indicator that our appetites are outstripping our productive capacity, but so far as we are able, we need to become reacquainted with a little economic home cooking.

    Brilliant idea BO, snub the greatest and most loyal friend this country has ever had. To quote the great Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon."
