he’s such a martyr
Our last real journalist was Russell Baker, who won the Pulitzer Prize for autobiography in 1982. Baker credited his writing style to having read the reporting of UK newspapers.
This is truly an insult to our greatest and staunchest ally.
Perhaps Obama should have spent a little more time actually *working* as a senator (rather than voting “present” so often), before running for an office where the Peter Principle is so clearly defined by his presidency.
Too late now.
I feel like writing a letter to the British newspapers apologizing for the lack of respect that baboon in the WH has for anything and anyone who does not bolster his image.
Sure, there were times that you wondered if Pres. Bush was not going to be able to complete the thought while speaking but he always did and one thing for sure, compared to this ZERO, he was a giant in dignity and manners and let's make sure we add Laura Bush to those kudos also!
Oh goodie. Not only is Obama folding under the pressure, since he's unqualified, but he's going through nicotine withdrawal too. That'll make him real cool in crisis.
We are so screwed.
“So, does this mean if terrorists attack us, he won’t be able to handle it?”
-Apparently not if he’s tired after yet ANOTHER White house party.
BO picked the wrong people to piss off.
They said the office of President had gotten to big for any one man during the Carter era.
Reagan changed that. :)
Now they’re already saying it again......
It is all a freaking redistribution scheme with a teleprompter conceived by college professors and entertainers. He might not even RUN for another term. His efforts to change will waste him as if he was on a sinking ship in a hurricane.
Jimmy Carter diplomatic incompetence.
Somehow I don’t see the UK Press Corp. apologizing and spewing Obamah propaganda in support of the “First Black” US President.
Erm ... pardon me, but isn't the State Department headed up by *the smartest woman in the world* -- you know, the one who has *thiry-five years of experience, counts eight years as the wife of a president as qualification to hold the position*?? HILARY CLINTON AND HER MINIONS don't know what the expectations that surround a major visit by a British prime minister are??
As we would put it when we were kids, "Smooth move, Ex-lax."
My first biggest fear - President Biden
My next really biggest fear - President Pelosi!!!!
Well, not much comfort further on down the line. Here’s the current order of presidential succession, according to Wikipedia, in case it makes you feel better:

"Damnit, I must've left that Russian translation book in the car. ...Oh well."
Well, Hello Doily!
I agree - marijuana was my first thought - he’s been cooling back with a hit or two and can’t handle the pace demanded.
What a sham the guy is.
I think he is doing more than MJ. In his book, he admitted to cocaine or “blow.”
Obama can do that for nothing but partying with lots of top shelf liquor or the finest vintage wines, paid for by you the taxpayer, makes the spirits even more enjoyable. The socialist dream come true.
I had to click on the article—I thought you might have been joking, or that this was actually from the Onion or Scrappleface. My apologies for doubting you.
When I think that this guy can’t get any worse, he does.
Yeah he’s too tired, but not from working. It is called being hung over from all the parties...
OMGosh........theOne has a REAL job. LOL
If he is so damn tired you would think he could cut the partying and campaigning and get serious about his freaking job.
Alternate explanation----- BHO (Aitch) was miffed that on Brown's first visit, Sir Tedward was knighted.
Surely, Obama has an Office of the Chief of Protocol
Those possibilities are so scary that I'm actually hoping that Biden steps down and Obama asks Hillary to be his VP.
Like his predecessors, Obama must master the presidential protocol that has long ruled the White House. From military salutes to the presidential march to the customs by which foreign visitors are welcomed, every commander-in-chief must respect the traditions that have come to define the office.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.
The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome." -- Winston Churchill
Who did comrade Obama give his first interview to upon becoming President? Arab television network Al Arabiya.
Gordon Brown and his wife obviously took the time to get gifts for Obama and his family.
Too bad Obama’s staff isn’t on the ball. DVDs? Probably came in a basket with a few bags of microwave popcorn. Marine One helicopters? Must have been straight from the White House gift shop.
And then there is Hillary!. No one on her staff speaks Russian? Or knows someone who could have translated that stupid gag gift better?
I didn’t think it would be this bad, but one month into this so-called presidency, this is BAD.
0bama was hitting the bong with Michelle a little too much?
"People say he looks tired more often than they're used to," the strategist said. "He's still calm, but there have been flashes of irritation when he thinks he's being pushed to make a decision sooner than he wants to make it. He looks like he needs a cigarette."
BWAHAHAHAAAAAAA!! Obama isn't going to quit smoking. In the meantime that is what will be blamed for his upcoming angry outbursts.
uh-huh bump as we continue into devastation. (did the dog eat the homework as well?)
