According to reports, the Chief Minister and his Deputy are upset that the US Consulate has demanded personal details.
No! This is satire? Barack Obama requires other peoples’ birth certificates?
Must be stealing credit-card numbers.
You had to know that 0bambi would blow it. India should demand to see his long form BC before letting him in their air space.
It isn’t an Obama world tour if he can’t find a reason to apologize for something.
I think he needs a Chief of Protocol.
It’s all collapsed since the Voodoo Princess, Desiree Rogers, abandoned them.
It has, hasn’t it. He’s lost that old black magic.
They all should refuse to attend anything with him. A good shunning would do Sir Arrogance good.
Long forms are only for the underlings.
The US Consulate called it a “clerical error”? To me, a clerical error would’ve been not sending the invitations out in enough time for a proper RSVP. For whatever reason it was deliberate.
Plus, what guarantee did they have that they would be meeting the “real” BHO??
The better to create shadow bank accounts to stash the loot in!
So, the U.S. taxpayer has spent a billion dollars to send Barry and his entourage on a vacation and they go over there and act like morons, insulting dignitaries in their own city.
