Barack Obama loves Lincoln. It seems not a day goes by that he isn't quoting the Civil War icon or comparing himself to that great man. But it looks like we are finding one great leader that Barack Obama doesn't like so much: Winston Churchill.
It appears that President Obama is dissing the Brit's most famous and stalwart leader by quickly returning the most famous bust of the man loaned to this country by the United Kingdom in the aftermath of 9//11. The return of the bust of Churchill flustered the British government because they didn't ask for it to be returned. Our best ally was nonplussed and even quickly told Obama he could keep it in the Oval Office where Bush had displayed the piece of art. Obama told them no thanks which made the Brits even more amazed.

Obama no doubt considers the US too Eurocentric.
Remember Churchill was half American. I can recall when it was regularly suggested that Churchill was one of the greatest men of all time.
Mugabe and Allah. O is Saudi stooge who will flood America with Muslims.
Absolutely. I am amazed this story wasn’t from the Onion...
Or perhaps someone more like The Anointed One himself - King George III.
Obama needed the space to display his bust of Mussolini
they needed room for the bust of Che to go there?
I suspect Obama doesn’t like Churchill because he saw the Soviets and the communists for what they were. The bust reminded him of Churchill’s insult to Stalin.
Obama is such an a&&hole.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. - Winston Churchill - It has always failed and it will fail again.
I have to say, I wouldn't want it in my office, either...it's one heck of an ugly piece of scrap metal (Sorry, Sir Jacob!). But surely we could have found a place for it!
Churchill was an ardent defender of freedom. It is only natural that a socialist quasi marxist (I am not sure about the quasi) does not want a bust of Churchill in the oval office.
He has a bust of Stalin that he wants to put in its place.
Maybe even Lenin or Winnie Mandella.
Words can’t even describe how dangerous this communist brat of a president really is. The next 4 years are going to be interesting in the worst way possible.
Churchill could explain it to them:
I cannot forecast to you the action of Obama. He is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Socialist political interest.
“President Obama is dissing the Brit’s most famous and stalwart leader by quickly returning the most famous bust of the man loaned to this country by the United Kingdom in the aftermath of 9//11.”
That’s it, Bambi, tick off the only ally we have. He’s probably going to replace it with a bust of Poncho Villa.
Churchill didn’t care for Muslims.
That’s what behind this gesture.
