No invite for the Obamas as the Queen personally asks 40 other heads of state to attend ...
(London) Daily Mail ^ | February 20, 2011

Posted on 02/21/2011 6:52:18 AM PST by Zakeet

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle have not been invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.

The Queen personally invited 40 heads of state, who received the gold-embossed invitations over the weekend to the April 29 wedding of the future king.

The Obamas, however, were not among them.

But they can take solace in the knowledge that they will be the guests of their very own state visit to the UK in May.

There have been suggestions that the state visit – the first for a US President since 2003 – was set up in return for Obama not coming to the wedding because of the added security costs involved with protecting the President.

French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni will also miss out and Prince Andrew’s former wife, Sarah Ferguson – the Duchess of York – has also been snubbed.

Leaders from Commonwealth counties, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand have been invited along with Kings and Queens across Europe, including Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Greece.

The Obamas are “poopers”. This proves that not EVERY party has one.

American call for Prince Andrew to be barred from US over Lockerbie row

What did the queen know and when did she know it?

And how much did the royal family make off the deal?

Are they paying for this wedding with blood money?

Oh, the WH menagerie will probably crash the party. That would be par for the course.

The Royal House of England has spurned POTUS Obama and his anti-American wife, Michelle!!! Why? Obama hates America!!! Obama hates Jews and the Jewish state of Israel!!! Obama hates England because his drunken, drug laden, womanizer father, radical communist that he was, hated England because England brought civilization and effective administration to Kenya. England certainly has faults and so does the USA, but the English brought law, order and reason to Kenya, laying the ground for the independence that was to come. I am glad the Queen culled out the Obamas for what they really are, haters!!!

Like Obama doesn’t provide his own security?

Come on. They probably didn’t want 1,000 Secret service agents roaming around the party .

And they did not want the “renagade’s” the “beast” parked out front, either. Tacky.

As close as Fergie and Diana were, this seems... I don’t know... William has had his mother washed from importance it seems.

Good for the Queen!

The young groom and bride probably already have a DVD of Obama’s speeches already and the white house gift shop is out of inventory.

On decorum, did Obama even get a thank you note for returning the bust of Winston Churchill?

It is rumoured that the Queen still has bruising from being felt up by Michelle during the last encounter. ;-)

The cool thing is most of us feel proud of the Queen - how she has, with grace - snubbed the Obamas’ for their cheap gifts and general rudeness. She has standards - that’s a good thing.

It’s a snub - you live under a rock or what?

You’re right, it’s not a snub. It’s a favor.

Queen Elizabeth was doing Obama and Michelle a favor. It would take months of etiquette instruction to ensure that the Obamas would act appropriately and not embarrass themselves.

Imagine if Michelle, once again, put her arm around the queen and slapped her on her back.

They probably skipped over the Obama’s because of not wanting the beautiful, poised; svelte Michelle to steal all the attention from that plain looking, frumpy white girl, Kate Middleton.

It is no rumor...Queen Elizabeth told her staff to NEVER allow that woman [moochelle] in the same room with her again.

Yeah, remember his trip to India and all that was involved in getting him there and back?
