This was posted over in England this week. If this is how he has treated our best Alie, why does he like our enemys more? :crazy:

-----------------------------------------------------------
On the heels of Obama flubbing a toast to the queen (and talking over the British national anthem), it seems only appropriate to bring you what one British reporter has dubbed Obama’s “top 10” insults against Britain.

Meredith first posted the list on the blog yesterday, but it’s worth some real estate on the story side, too.

The Telegraph’s Nile Gardiner compiled the list, something he’s done in the past. But, he says, since then a lot has happened.

“In honour [British spelling] of President Obama’s state visit to Britain this week, here’s an updated and revised list, as a reminder to readers of the president’s less than stellar track record when it comes to US-British relations,” he writes. “The US president will no doubt be careful not to offend his hosts when he travels to London, and he will receive a warm welcome from the Queen and the Prime Minister, as any American president would. But the prospect of an embarrassing diplomatic gaffe or insensitive remark cannot be ruled out from a world leader whose administration has all too often specialised [British spelling] in them.”

It‘s important to note that Gardiner’s piece was written before the now-infamous toast and the Westminster Abbey guest-book signing. So that he would say “the prospect of an embarrassing diplomatic gaffe or insensitive remark cannot be ruled out” is not only prophetic but also sad — sad that it would seem so easy to predict.

Below is the list:

1. Siding with Argentina over the Falklands

2. Calling France America’s strongest ally

3. Downgrading the Special Relationship

4. Supporting a federal Europe and undercutting British sovereignty

5. Betraying Britain to appease Moscow over the New START Treaty

6. Placing a “boot on the throat” of BP

7. Throwing Churchill out of the Oval Office

8. DVDs for the Prime Minister

9. Insulting words from the State Department

10. Undermining British influence in NATO

After Obama’s current trip is over, the list might need to be updated again.

THis is just more smear and fear against a great man.
Apparently, when Obama campaigned saying he would get the rest of the world to like and respect us more, he meant everyone except the ones who already liked and respected us. To those countries, he has mostly had nothing more than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. :crazy:

:laughing: #6 is incorrect, not only do the taxpayers get to foot the bill for BP, BP get's to turn a profit on the spill. And the Post Turtle filled up at a BP station in England earlier this week.
