If the snub of British PM Gordon Brown at the hands of President Obama and his wife weren't enough, now British Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O'Donnell is saying that Downing Street is finding it "unbelievably difficult" to get hold of officials from Obama's administration. British officials can't seem to ever get past the administration's answer machines as they call here to try and coordinate plans for the coming G20 summit.

Hell, these dirt bags are still trying to figure out which are the doors and which are the windows.

They've got the socialism/communism bit down, but without the graffiti on their new diggs, they are lost.

From what I’ve read, Obama sounds like a micro-manager. He’s trying to do it all instead of counting on talented people around him. That’s a recipe for disaster.

Learn to delegate, Mr. Obama! Or, better yet, start acting like a president per the US Constitution. Running health care, education, and the energy industry isn’t part of your job description!

The Obama Administration is too busy helping Obama realize his goal.

Obama's goal is to re-experience his childhood, by converting the US into a third world country, like Indonesia was

Do you think Obama knows that the Brits have troops in Afghanistan? You’d think that Obama would be treating them better for that reason alone.

I think it's just the opposite, Obamah has never managed anything in real life. ..he's just a big talker.

To get things done, he has to rely up others, then takes their credit.

Agree with your assessment. Problem is, he may have clever people but not necessarily smart or learned ones, advising him. He and his adminstration are walking disaster. Thank goodness he kept Gates on, can you image if the SecDef were one of his choosing???

Wonder if this article has any influence on the situation....

British colonial forces accused of terror tactics in Kenya
February 7 2005-Kenyans who fought in the Mau Mau rebellion have taken the British government to court for alleged humans rights abuses. Their application reflects the fluidity of the concept of terrorsim. While the colonial government referred to the Mau Mau as ‘terrorists’ in the 1950s, the Kenyan Mau Mau Trust has now delivered a dossier to the British High Commission in Nairobi, entitled “Kenya: White Terror”. More than 200 000 Kenyan freedom fighters were detained in camps in a bid to force them to abandon their nationalist goals in the 1950s. The dossier catalogues instances of torture and murder by British soldiers and locals under their command. Other documented atrocities in the report include castration and blinding of defiant captives, as well as fatal whippings and r ape by British soldiers. The report is based on more than 6000 depositions alleging numerous cases of human rights abuse. This is the third time Kenya is seeking reparations from the British government for atrocities committed during British colonial rule.
