President Bambi is getting a “private” audience with HRM. I hope She Is Not Amused With Him. We were given the impression, yesterday, that he was going to get the whole “State” visit thing. Looks like he’s not now.
What kind of an insensitive jerk would give a man who daily lives in terror of going blind a set of DVD’s? Well, I guess it’s the same self-involved person who returned the bust of Winston Churchill. It’s a gift-less administration all right.
I find people who do not give, and do not give are basically very selfish entities. They are also creatures who have had a rather deprived childhood coming from a back-ground where they were never given gifts. It is also about being selfish and completely uninterested in doing anything for others.
According to the MSM, Michelle O is a rock star. It doesn’t matter how pathetic she is, nor the fact that she is a fashion victim. She is an example of how a “normal” mom can act in these hard times, even when serving $100 per ounce beef, and insulting the Prime Minister of the UK. None of this matters. She has beautiful, well-toned arms.
Let’s be honest here. The Obama’s are an embarrassment. Anyone who finds their behavior acceptable when it comes to the treatment of the PM and his wife is as crude, rude, and socially depraved as they are. Was the deplorable snub on the part of the Obamas, an appeasement to Michelle?
We all know when The One (anointed) meets HRM in London next month, he will be treated Royally, literally. The Queen is too well bred and has far superior manners. She will treat the Obamas far better than they treated her PM. But then, we’re talking the paragon of social grace. Maybe Michelle O can learn a thing or two.
Let’s face it, we all know the Obamas will cause an international incident when Michelle decides she doesn’t need to wear gloves when she is presented to Her Majesty. Once upon a time, my British cousins knew how to deal with pathetic little upstarts like Michelle and Barack. They would be subjected to such a snub they would spend the rest of their pathetic little lives getting over it.
Anyone want to bet on Michelle causing an international incident with her pathetically ignorant behavior?
Sarah Brown took the Obama girls dresses with matching necklaces and books by British authors. Evidently the girls loved the gift.
What did Michelle Obama, the woman who DOES NOT GIVE BIRTHDAY OR CHRISTMAS GIFTS TO HER GIRLS give the Brown boys, Fraser and John models of Marine One. In doing so she insulted the Brits.
That makes sense.
While I think Gordon Brown is far left idiot who would sell out the UK at the first hint of Islamic harassment, he is still the PM and deserving of decent treatment.
But what do I know?
I do know the Obamas are nothing but ill-bred upstarts who know nothing about the role they are playing in the world. I also know they are going to go down in history as the worst excuse for POTUS and First Lady in history.
“…Short of giving the boys Action Man models of her own husband smiting the evil forces of neoconservatism, Mrs Obama’s gesture could not have been more solipsistic or more inherently dismissive of Mrs Brown….Not only did she demonstrate that she spent approximately three seconds contemplating the needs of the Brown boys (having an aide pop to the White House gift shop for a piece of merchandising does not imply a great deal of thought), she appeared to show a most uncharacteristic lapse of judgment.
It might have been possible to overlook the incident were it not for the official photograph.
The White House released one picture of the two women and it does not appear to have been selected with any kind of special relationship in mind. There is a menacing bunch of pink peonies in the foreground and the angle is most unflattering to Mrs Brown, who has the air of a woman very much in need of a stiff drink.
Whether deliberate or not, the whole thing feels like a snub.
As for Fraser and John, their parents’ trip to America will always be remembered as the time that “Mum and Dad went to see the President, and all we got was this lousy plastic helicopter”….”
The British Press was NOT amused. In fact, they consider it a terrible insult. First The One (anointed) sends back the Churchill Bust, but then he presents the PM with an entirely inappropriate gift – 25 CD‘s, thereby proving my theory that Barack and Michelle Obama are completely selfish.
“…Michelle doesn’t reciprocate our affection, one bit. Her broad-brush view of history associates Brits with the wicked white global hegemony responsible for the slave trade. Never mind that a white, Tory Englishman – William Wilberforce – brought the slave trade to an end. Judging by her record, Michelle does not make room for such subtle nuance.
Consider her notorious statement that: “For the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country.” Consider her (till-recently suppressed) Princeton thesis, “Princeton Educated Blacks And The Black Community.”
In it she writes: “I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my white professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don’t belong. Regardless of the circumstances underwhich I interact with whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be black first and a student second.”
Here we see that she has mastered the authentic voice of grievance culture. She also – the thesis was written in 1985 – pre-empts the Macpherson report’s ludicrous, catch-all definition of racism: “A racist incident is any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person.” No matter how hard young Michelle’s white undergraduate contemporaries try to be nice, it’s not their behaviour that counts, but how Michelle feels.
More worrying, though, and dangerous, than young Michelle’s desperate quest for validation through victimhood is the other strain within her thesis. “As I enter my final year at Princeton,” she writes. “I find myself striving for many of the same goals as my White classmates – acceptance to a prestigious graduate or professional school or a high paying position in a successful corporation. Thus, my goals at Princeton are not as clear as before.”
“Yes, exactly, you silly girl” you want to shriek at young Michelle as you give her a good shake. “It’s called ‘opening your mind’, ‘broadening your experience’, ‘allowing youthful dogma to be shaped by reality.’ It’s why people go to university, don’t you know?”…”
“…The London Telegraph attempted an explanation: “Churchill has less happy connotations for Mr. Obama than those American politicians who celebrate his wartime leadership. It was during Churchill’s second premiership that Britain suppressed Kenya’s Mau Mau rebellion. Among Kenyans allegedly tortured by the colonial regime included one Hussein Onyango Obama, the President’s grandfather.”
In other words, such family lore is supposed to render the British titan who roused the Free World against Nazi Germany and warned the Free World against the Communist U.S.S.R. as popular with the new president as Guantanamo Bay. For the record, though, the Mau Mau story is a historic impossibility, at least according to the known timeline of events. As noted by the blogger Papa Whiskey via the Jawa Report, Obama’s grandfather was jailed and tortured between 1949 and 1951. That’s the story according to his widow, Obama’s “Granny Sarah.” Of course, Granny Sarah is also a primary source of the claim that Obama was born in Kenya, so who really knows? Obama himself has offered conflicting accounts in both cases. In his memoir “Dreams of My Father,” Obama describes his grandfather’s detention as lasting “over six months” before he was found innocent (no mention of torture). Whatever the case, Churchill didn’t become prime minister for the second time until the end of 1951. The Ma!
u Mau Rebellion didn’t begin until the end of 1952, one year after Obama’s grandfather’s release.
It seems that what we are seeing in the return of the Churchill bust is less a personal vendetta against Churchill the man and more an open breach in the Western continuum out of which a new orientation toward the Third World will become increasingly apparent. Having achieved a Washington-like apotheosis in the American imagination, Churchill serves not only as the preeminent symbol of resolve, courage and faith against the enemies of Western civilization. He serves as a symbol of Western civilization, period. One of President Obama’s first acts as president was to consign that symbol to a box and send it packing….”
