Barack Obama has no interest in standing with Britain over the Falklands
Barack Obama's latest knife in the back for Britain and there have been many - should be a wake-up call for David Cameron, whose recent trip to Washington was an undignified exercise in hero-worship toward a Left-wing president who doesn't even like the British. The prime minister should understand that Barack Obama is no friend of Britain and never will be. And nor is his Secretary of State, who has actively backed Argentina's calls for UN-brokered negotiations between London and Buenos Aires over the sovereignty of the islands.
The Obama presidency has beeen the most anti-British US administration of modern times. No amount of photo-ops at college basketball games, glamorous flights on Air Force One, or lavish state dinners stuffed full of Democrat fundraisers and donors will change that. To Mr Obama, the Prime Minister is little more than a convenient campaign prop: a compliant figure to roll out to the US media to give the impression he actually has friends on the world stage. It is time for David Cameron's reckless adulation of the Obama White House to come to an end.
President Obama doesn't believe in the Special Relationship, and this was clearly on display in Colombia. Britain's true friends in America are on the Right, not the Left.

The Brits are properly pissed off, as am I.
he may send the Marine ‘Corpse’ to help the Argentinians.
Las Islas Malvinas?

Hey, you would have thought they got the message when BO threw out that bust of Churchill that has been given as a gift to the Whitehouse!
Lil Bammy would never be a double-crossing SOB, would he? Especially to his very best British friends. Bammy has always liked the British so much, and has always gone out of his way to show it.
Yup, and while the media raked Dan Quayle over the coals for weeks (months?) for adding an ‘e’ to the end of ‘potato’ during an impromptu moment,’ I have heard nary a hue nor cry from the media regarding Obama’s criminal lack of knowledge about geography in a prepared speech.
"Pull our troops out of Afghanistan next week, and tell Obama they are needed to reinforce the Falklands garrison."
Obama is an ass.
Or the national guard units from all fifty states
Very true. Most here know why. I hope we all live long enough to laugh about this.
Very interesting blog. I lost all interest in Cameron when he was rude to Bush the Younger during his last months in office. And the fact that my socialist/old labour friends in England like him makes me uncomfortable. Now Ken the Red Livingstone is running for mayor of London again!
The Brits should check back with us in 2013 before writing us off.
I meant all fifty-seven states
Old habits die hard for me I guess
Will Cameron be willing to risk being tossed under 0bungle’s bus and miss out on the chance of getting an I-pod loaded with The Won’s speeches?
Obama is no friend to Britain.
I read that Dan was handed cards with the words printed on them. He was reading what some teacher spelled. I truly hate the left and the MSM.
