Yearn for a conspiracy theory uniting Obama and the royal wedding? Yearn no more
The Australian ^ | April 30, 2011

Posted on 05/01/2011 11:05:30 AM PDT by Zakeet

Geoffrey Robertson in Fairfax's National Times yesterday:

It is an open secret at the Commonwealth Secretariat that they do not want Charles III to be the next head of the Commonwealth when the Queen retires -- they are looking for someone more inspiring. Mandela, once the favourite candidate, is now too old. But there is an even better candidate whose name is being mentioned as an alternative to Charles in due course, namely ex-President Obama, with his Kenyan ancestry (as some believe, Kenyan birth). There are rumours that the palace's refusal to invite him to the wedding was neither oversight nor overslight but a fear that Barack and Michelle would appear to the "black Commonwealth" as superior to Charles and Camilla as future leaders of the Commonwealth.

Rightio.

They weren’t invited because the Monarchy would have never survived another Moochelle fashion faux pas.

Never thought I’d rather see Charles get a job, but...I please!

Well, I think it is true that few people would want Prince Charles to rule the Commonwealth. What a jerk he is.

But the rumors also suggest that the Palace has made a deal with Prince Charles to quietly refuse the crown, so it can be passed on to William when the Queen dies.

The whole point of the current arrangement is that the head of the Commonwealth is SUPPOSED to be a figurehead, not a politician. She or he is an image around which the commonwealth nations can maintain a degree of unity, without any pretense of political control.

Charles would be a pretty sad sack image, but William would do the job fine.

As to why they didn’t invite Michelle and Bammy to the wedding, at least two reasons:

1. They were exceedingly rude when they visited the Queen.

2. Their security requirements would have wrecked the entire wedding.

LOL! This isn't really meant to be serious, is it?

Not much difference,,, both are first class leftists with a huge sense of entitlement.

I think i’ll settle for a Reagan.

I think that the release of the long form was Obama’s last ditch effort to get an invite.

Seriously. Obama is incapable of any real conspiracy. He's just not that bright. Intellectuals must be secretly disgusted by him.

HA!!!

I hadn’t even thought of that. Can you imagine? Like when they went to India, or wherever it was, where they had to take the coconuts out of the trees even!

Anyone notice that apart from the Royal Family many of the dignitaries and other guests traveled in a group of minibuses to the abbey? Imagine the blowup if the zeroes were told they had to use a minibus.

Maybe they lacked boob belts, but there were plenty of fashion faux pas present in the Abbey!

Difficult to say: Geoffrey Robertson: leftist "human rights lawyer", anti-monarchy, smugly satisfied with his own brilliance.

He used to run TV Hypotheticals, basically improv theatre where public figures examined possible real-life situations using their experience. Entertaining until you realized the moderator (Robertson) was the only one with a script, like what he wrote. Then it became meh.

My illumination was: Future hostile Indonesian Government goes nuclear. Air Garuda 747 with "something" under the wing is heading directly towards the Pine Gap Aust-US defence facility, not answering RAAF fighter calls. what to do?

retired RAAF officer (playing Chief of Air Staff): "Defence Minister, clear and present danger, recommend shoot down"

retired politician(playing Defence Minister): "Agree, shoot it down"

Robertson then steps in and overrules them, because he wants the US Navy to do it over Australian soil.

(Back to article) 'Cut and paste' is a regular feature of The Australian, highlighting balther and contradictorily statements published in the MSM. (For some reason, most examples come from the Left)

I'm not so sure. Queen Elizabeth has played a key role during Blair. In a way, they are the guardians of the British culture and tradition. The younger generation embarrassed them, but a strong and good monarch can make a difference.

What stood out to me was one word out of this line. Emphasis mine.

But there is an even better candidate whose name is being mentioned as an alternative to Charles in due course, namely ex-President Obama, with his Kenyan ancestry (as some believe, Kenyan birth).

Nah... The next "Monarch" to lead the British Commonwealth will be Bill Clinton. After all, he already has that "It's good to be the king" line down pat!

Oh, certainly. The Queen has always taken the “advice” of the Prime Minister, and QE II has always done a consummate job. But it’s still very different from some politician trying to grab more power.

The Queen is genuinely working for the good of England and the Commonwealth, which is something many politicians find hard to do.

Has someone designed the perfect hat and gown that Michelle Obama would have worn? The women in attendance at the Royal Wedding all seemed so delicate and feminine ... very pretty.

What a blessing for the monarchy that would be. The Queen Mum lived to be almost 102 so if Queen Elizabeth lives that long she has another 16 years. And she appeared to be quite fit at Friday's royal wedding. Prince Charles has been looking and sounding senile for some time and he's only 63.
