Skip to comments.Starstruck David Cameron's embarrassing fawning over Barack Obama and his 'beautiful words'

What David Cameron described as his "guys night out" watching basketball with President Barack Obama in the swing state of Ohio was cheesy and embarrassing enough.
But has there ever been a speech given by a British prime minister that was quite as cringeworthy as Cameron's "toast" to Obama at last night's State Dinner?
Watch the video. Cameron starts speaking at the 8:20 point and almost immediately hails Obama's "strong and beautiful words". It's downhill from there.
He takes a cheap shot at Richard Nixon - the easiest possible target in front of a gathering of Obamaphiles - and his own Tory predecessor Ted Heath. He makes corny jokes about cricket and Watergate ("call in the plumbers" - Geddit?) and then lauds Obama's "strength, moral authority and wisdom". No mention of Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher.
Then comes what must surely be one of the most obsequious things Obama - who is well used to adulation - has ever heard. Obama, says Cameron "has pressed the reset button on the moral authority of the entire free world".

this is a gay thread, right?
“You use your mouth prettier than a twenty-dollar whore.”
There’s something very wrong here...I’d like to know what the other hand is doing. I’m guessing that part of it has to do with BP.
He doesn't know how right he is...and how telling, though not in the way he means it. Obama is destroying the moral authority of the free world, and the US in particular.
But Cameron was over the top. Obama's remarks don't sound like an endorsement or political advertisment for David Cameron. Cameron's speech is a little too fulsome or unctuous, starstruck or groveling, and does read like an endorsement of Obama.
About Nixon and Heath. After Cameron mentioned their awkwardness he pointed out that Nixon got someone to pay for the swimming pool at the Prime Minister's official holiday residence -- a point in Nixon's favor. After saying "Nixon" and "swimming pool" the rest, unfortunate though it might be, wrote itself.
...as the bust of Winston Churchill gathers dust in the WH basement, per zero’s orders.
"Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life...
"Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life.
But this was sung about God's word(s) of life, not a wicked man's lies.
I suspect that when these two cuddle at night, Cameron gets to be the little spoon
A British socialist toasting another stone socialist is not amazing at all..
It would be amazing if he didn’t..
Both are buggaring the same ideology..
Is Cameron a homo?
BINGO we have a winner!
Anybody who doesn’t see through obama by now is a bad judge of character and not too bright.
Leftists are such fools, and so easy to fool! They drool and fawn over nice words and platitudes without and discernment whatsoever. If they weren’t wrecking the Country I would really pity them all. Thanks God I grew up wiht 2 parents at home and recieved proper training and discipline growing up!
This kind of thing is preliminary to BO being appointed Supreme Leader of the World Confederacy of Socialist Nations. After that comes fulfillment of the antiChrist prophecies.
A “barf alert” would’ve been nice.
Cameron is a “conservative”??
What, now word definitions are reversed on the other side of the Atlantic??
