Reason why Obama snubbed the Brits? He's "overwhelmed"
Omg what a way to inspire confidence! But after all this is Obamas first real job, so it should be expected.
Can't vote "present" when your the Pres.


Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.


Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president's surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama's inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to "even fake an interest in foreign policy


The real views of many in Obama administration were laid bare by a State Department official involved in planning the Brown visit, who reacted with fury when questioned by The Sunday Telegraph about why the event was so low-key.

The official dismissed any notion of the special relationship, saying: "There's nothing special about Britain. You're just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn't expect special treatment."

Re: Reason why Obama snubbed the Brits? He's "overwhelmed"
Let me guess...

If he acted on foreign policy you'd scream that he's ignoring the biggest economic crisis since the 1930s.

You all seem to be on a "If I post a thousand negative posts about Obama, maybe the party I support won't seem so shitty anymore" bent.

That is a weak way to lead.

Reagan went thru some really bad economic times and he never seemed overwhelmed; course he was in his jammies at sundown too. Sounds like a staff problem to me. Somebody is not toteing their load.

Re: Reason why Obama snubbed the Brits? He's "overwhelmed"
He is out of his league, there is no doubt about that. He is being pushed around by an uber liberal congress that has some mileage...among other things. You've got to realize that during his whole political existance he is used to getting his ass kissed, not having to make any executive decisions whatsoever and in a nutshell? making a speech...have everyone oooh and ahhh over it...then moving on while getting whatever low level piece of cheese he asked for. Obots are going to run out of gas soon...he can only fuck up so much before even they have to admit the truth...when that happens? he will turn antagonistic and probably recede...he's already reverted to the only thing he knows...campaigning...but that isn't what a president should be doing.....

Obama snubbed the Brits.

Remeber also there is also a flip side to this. Gordon Brown WAS expecting "more" special treatment. Remember the old jokes...Blair was bushes poodle.... And bush was Blairs rotweiler!!! Gordon Brown came across to the US "EXPECTING" to be hailed as a hero for "sorting out" the world economy he said so to his own parliament.
At the moment here in the UK he is seen by many as a Clown. He was using Obama who was "projected", and seen by many as a political messiah, but Obama wasn`t falling for it, and Brown slipped on his own banana skin.

Re: Reason why Obama snubbed the Brits? He's "overwhelmed"
The difference between Brown and Obama is that Brown does have some financial experience.

Obama has to come to London for the G20 on April 2nd. It would have been in his interests to make an effort.

Where will the markets be by then? No-one knows.

Low life with no manners.


[link to blogs.telegraph.co.uk]

But on this side of the Atlantic the whole business looked pretty demeaning. The morning papers and TV last night featured plenty of comment focused on the White House's very odd and, frankly, exceptionally rude treatment of a British PM. Squeezing in a meeting, denying him a full press conference with flags etc. The British press corps, left outside for an hour in the cold, can take it and their privations are of limited concern to the public.

But Obama's merely warmish words (one of our closest allies, said with little sincerity or passion) left a bitter taste with this Atlanticist. Especially after his team had made Number 10 beg for a mini press conference and then not even offered the PM lunch.

We get the point, sunshine: we're just one of many allies and you want fancy new friends. Well, the next time you need something doing, something which impinges on your national security, then try calling the French, or the Japanese, or best of all the Germans. The French will be able to offer you first rate support from their catering corps but beyond that you'll be on your own.

When it comes to men, munitions and commitment you'll soon find out why it pays to at least treat the Brits with some manners.

Which shows Obama was acting leaderly, unlike what people on GLP are trying to say. The thing is, it is clear some people are so blind with their hate for Obama. As I said in a post I made.

Now the thing is, these people are so lame, they think if you tell people "to read without your blinders" they must be shills. I am not. I don't agree with a lot of what Obama wants, but I also don't use that to judge his ability. They do. They only think in tautologies and see the world according to their own brains. If people think like them, people are smart; if not, they are incompetent. Which is a lame way of looking at the world.
