Obama HATES the British


Did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton put the final nail in the coffin of US-British relations? 
 -- More of that later.

It's difficult to fathom that Barack Hussein Obama could offend our British friends and allies more than he has. So far he has not urinated on the Union Jack (in public) but he's done just about everything else. Before I move on to the latest political insult in the Falkland Islands, let's review what he's done to Alienate Great Britain over his last year in office.

Barack Hussein Obama has effectively erased the "special relationship" enjoyed between the US and Great Britain. In Washington, they're treated callously where over the past hundred years, they enjoyed a special place in American political thinking. When the Prime Minister met with Barack Hussein Obama a year ago, Obama said, "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."

Barack Hussein Obama has relentlessly supported the Treaty of Lisbon and other measures which would eliminate national sovereignty for European nations. The British feel their sovereignty is not a negotiable item. Obama says that it is.

Barack Hussein Obama and his administration has refused to recognize the contribution that the British made in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's CLEARLY an insulting signal sent to the British who were the ONLY allies to send significant numbers of troops to support our efforts.

The British people loaned the US a bust of Winston Churchill in the aftermath of 9/11 as a token of solidarity and support. Barack Hussein Obama had it shipped back without telling the British Government it was coming. It's simply one in a long list of insults.

I won't go into the embarrassing DVD Collection matter presented by Barack Hussein Obama and his shrewish spouse slapping the Queen of England on the back, Barack Hussein Obama dodging the Prime Minister in New York last September or Robert Gibbs' attack on the British Press. Let's move on to the Falklands.

Argentina was celebrated a diplomatic coup yesterday in its attempt to force Britain to accept talks on the future of the Falkland Islands, after a two-hour meeting in Buenos Aires between Hillary Clinton and President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

Responding to a request from Mrs Kirchner for “friendly mediation” between Britain and Argentina, Mrs Clinton, the US Secretary of State, said she agreed that talks were a sensible way forward and offered “to encourage both countries to sit down”.
Her intervention defied Britain’s longstanding position that there should be no negotiations unless the islands’ 3,000 inhabitants asked for them. It was hailed in Buenos Aires as a major diplomatic victory, but condemned in the Falklands.
In the Falklands, reaction to the meeting ranged from dismay to fury. “It’s outrageous after all the support we have given the United States,” said Hattie Kilmartin, a sheepfarmer’s wife. “They are not looking at the people who are actually living here and what they want, and it’s crazy that they are even contemplating going against us.” (Times On Line)

The Obama "smart diplomacy" juggernaut forges full-speed ahead!

One wonders: does the Obama administration deliberately try to screw up our foreign policy, or is it just a matter of ignorance and incompetence? This is painful reading: "Argentina celebrates diplomatic coup as Hillary Clinton calls for talks over Falklands." ...So much for the idea that foreign relations would be conducted better by women. Maybe a "wise Latina" would do better? Oh, wait...she's busy doing a supreme social justice gig.

It is simply beyond my comprehension why, in the name of "diversity" and social egalitarianism, we as a society have come to the point where we think this kind of tawdry identity politics should trump competence. In Obama's case, by shrewdly manipulating his race and gift for empty rhetoric, he was elected President of the United States.

It's hopelessly naive these days to expect the electorate to vote for a person based on what that person actually stands for or has accomplished; instead, these days most people respond to the looks of a candidate; or the carefully constructing image; or the negative campaign ads that slice and dice the other guy. Voters appear to be primarily influenced by botoxed faces and Hollywood-packaged good-looks rather than the content of any candidate's character or the scope of his or her experience.

Real personal integrity and character comes from having a consistent set of values and exhibiting behavior driven by those values. Today's classic narcissistically-driven politicians like Hillary and her famous husband; as well as the deeply flawed Obamessiah, can only flutter in the political winds, and zelig-like easily take on whatever characteristics their public care to project onto them. These are not the kind of people who can face real threats in the real world very effectively because they are not the kind of people who can effectively deal with threats they do not perceive as personal--why should they care much about any other kind, unless the polls indicate they should? 

The Mainstream Media/State-Controlled Media backs their play at all levels. Political bullies feel perfectly safe in viciously attacking and denigrating those who oppose them. And, you can see that Obama has no compunction about bullying and denigrating his opponents and making them into scapegoats for his own failures and incompetence. And, when it happens occasionally that a political adversary unexpectedly shoots back and won't go away, the bully easily falls back on the "victim" role and whines about "vast right-wing conspiracies" blames others, or sheds a few tears on cue and such.

To our steadfast British allies, all I can do is offer apologies for what America has become.

  1. I hope the Brits as well as the Israelies understand that the majority of Americans support them and appreciate their long years of friendship. We won't let our incompetent leaders come between us. For long.

  2. LL,

    I sent your blog on to a British friend in Singapore. Maybe by this he'll understand that I'm not the only anti-Obama bloke around.

  3. If that's the case, Ol' Maggie Thatcher would have given oblama a heart attack. Oh, that's right ... Obama would have been in Ayers' basement planning bomb attacks at that time. Sorry. Never mind.

  4. Firstly we Brits know that Obama is not the USA; secondly few of us would actually blame him for being rude to Brown personally, as with the DVDs; third, nothing is going to happen in the Falklands since Argentinas forces are not up to it so we don't need Obama/Clinton going out on a limb for us.
    Lastly, Diego Garcia is our ball, and we're going home.

  5. Well, if he hates the British, he hates my ancestors. I don't hate his! I am proud to be of British/German/Irish/Norwegian decent. I like all those groups. It seems strange that he is from the party of "diversity" and holds these attitudes!

  6. Thank you so much for paying attention. In partss of America (like where I live) it's still dangerous to say anything against this guy in spite of all the mounting evidence that he is horrible. And, by the way.... I don't know anyone who dislikes him because of his race - just his actions and his words.
    Much of the problem seems to stem from his belief in Black Liberation Theology. It's all very upsetting to those of us who thought he was going to be great at this. Most of the media is still on his side which doesn't help us get at the truth.
    The American people will always love the UK no matter what happens.

    1. For the last hundred years we have shared resources,Information,technology,man power and so on and so on and I don't think Obama quite understands how much of an ally Britain is and COULD be in the future ( as it stands it's looking ver doubtful as he will and is everyday making more anti americans conscript to the bandwagon). To upset us as a nation would be very bad for the British and American PEOPLE (key word) but you as an American peoplle will have the powers to do something about it.. good luck for both of our sakes .
