Ya’ know, I’ve been thinking about this. We gotta give him some slack [NOT!]. After all, this is the first time in his life that the kid has had a real job.

Here's what Obamah really thinks about our closest ally.

From the article:

The real views of many in Obama administration were laid bare by a State Department official involved in planning the Brown visit, who reacted with fury when questioned by The Sunday Telegraph about why the event was so low-key.

The official dismissed any notion of the special relationship, saying: "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." The apparent lack of attention to detail by the Obama administration is indicative of what many believe to be Mr Obama's determination to do too much too quickly.

The utter lack of Class and Dignity of this Administration
is appalling! This man is out of place on the world stage.
Isn’t that what they have assistants for...to make wise choices?

“Barack Obama’s offhand approach to Gordon Brown’s Washington visit last week came about because the president was facing exhaustion over America’s economic crisis and is unable to focus on foreign affairs, the Sunday Telegraph has been tol”

Isn’t this the same guy who clucked about how he can focus on several issues at a time during the campaign?

No, it's indicative of being unqualified for the position.

Why is anyone surprised - Obama has never held a responsible job in his life (other than fatherhood), why would he be able to pace himself in the real world?

He’s absolutely underwhelming.

Obama and his wife are too busy lavishly partying at taxpayers expense. They can’t get over the parties they can throw and the number of guests the can invite.

Oh my goodness - what a disaster this dufus two-bit punk is turning out to be.

I can’t even IMAGINE the coverage this would get if President Bush whined about being stressed, tired, and no time to even think about foreign affairs.

This president is going to crumble under the pressure - just wait until the media turns on him (IF they ever do) and he is being called out for every little thing he does wrong.

I think back to the onslaught President Bush received almost hourly - for EVERYTHING. He even took the blame for problems caused by Democrats and never opened his mouth to whine, let alone fight back.

I would just LOVE to see him have a very public, meltdown, go ballistic and throw a temper tantrum.

I would LOVE IT!

He certainly seems to be the type.
The fact that inside sources close to him are talking is a good sign.

Poor little sock puppet. Poor baby is tired. Perhaps he needs to stop taking those long hot showers in the wee hours of the morning with his little Chicago buttboy, Roehm[ballerina boy]Emanuelle, who also has spectacular suitcases under his eyes, be it duly noted. When one considers that these two are running the government - - - Lord have Mercy.

To tired and overwhelmed to properly welcome a dignitary and give out the dumbest gift (bet he was re gifting) but not to tired to have his lavish weekly party at tax payers expensive. Poor Obie needs a nap. whine whine whine, feel bad for me causes I am so over whelmed.
He is definitely NOT Presidential material.

"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."

Can you even imagine the full blown 24/7 press fury and liberal explosion if a Republican staffer had said that?

We would hear and read about it for months...

Considering that the UN alone recognizes 192 countries within the UN itself, that number come from?

Amazing quote:

The American source said: "Obama is overwhelmed. There is a zero sum tension between his ability to attend to the economic issues and his ability to be a proactive sculptor of the national security agenda".

I hope FReepers will lay off Obama now. Don't you heartless gloaters realize that Obama is busy proactively sculpting the national security agenda? Aren't you ashamed of yourselves?

Bull shit! If he’s too tired it’s only because he’s spending too much time partying and sipping wine - not because he gives a damn about the economy.

I was kind of wondering that myself. He has all those parties going with lots of “celebrities” in and out plus running away from the White House so often. Why would he leave a place where he is waited on hand and foot?

He is tired and overwhelmed because he spends too much time throwing parties at the white house and staying up till all hours instead of doing his job. (guess who is paying for all those parties)

Remember the outrage at Pres. Bush for the 7 minutes he spent gathering his thoughts when he was informed about the attacks on the WTC. 7 minutes!!!

I honestly believe that the reason he was so adamant about keeping his Blackberry was the need to keep in contact with his drug dealer.

Still, this is a puff piece to make up an excuse for Obama dissing the Brits...”The poor baby was too tired”...BULLFEATHERS!

The truth is Obama would rather kiss Amedinerjacket’s butt than be seen to be close to an old “European” ally.

That's actually truer than you'll know. He's never had to sign anything. Signing something required a decision. He's literally learning on the job. The thing you fear is he says this is all too complicated and just starts a decree thing going. Idiots that voted for this actor. Of course we had just as incompetent waiting in the wings on the right, but at least he managed to fly planes in his life. That would have required some discipline.

And he only has Rahmbo to help him. He ought to be losing lots of sleep. He appears to have reached the top of his abilities.

The only thing he can do well is read a teleprompter. And those are speeches created by speech writers. They don’t have much to do with reality. IMO

Most likely it is an after the fact made up story to counter a reasonably liberal paper’s stinging criticism (likethe Gore weak bladder).

If it is true then they are admitting that Obama is not up to the job (and the media ridiculed cat naps of the oldewr Persident Reagan are far more needed by Obama than they were by Reagan).

Irresponsible and dangerous of Obama either way.

Yes - not only gathering his thoughts, but remaining calm so that the kids and the entire school were not set into panic/alarm mode.

President Bush was the epitome of darned if you do, darned if you don’t. Frankly, I miss him.
