Barack Obama's churlishness is unforgivable

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/da...-unforgivable/



The juxtaposition on our front page this morning is striking. We carry a photograph of Acting Sgt Michael Lockett - who was killed in Helmand on Monday - receiving the Military Cross from the Queen in June, 2008. He was the 217th British soldier to die in the Afghan conflict. Alongside the picture, we read that the Prime Minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure a few minutes “face time” with President Obama after five requests for a sit-down meeting were rejected by the White House.

What are we to make of this? This country has proved, through the bravery of men like Acting Sgt Lockett, America’s staunchest ally in Afghanistan. In return, the American President treats the British Prime Minister with casual contempt. The President’s graceless behaviour is unforgivable. As most members of the Cabinet would confirm, it’s not a barrel of laughs having to sit down for a chat with Gordon Brown. But that’s not the point. Mr Obama owes this country a great deal for its unflinching commitment to the American-led war in Afghanistan but seems incapable of acknowledging the fact. You might have thought that after the shambles of Mr Brown’s first visit to the Obama White House - when there was no joint press conference and the President’s “gift” to the Prime Minister was a boxed DVD set - lessons would have been learned. Apparently not. Admittedly, part of the problem was Downing Street’s over-anxiety to secure a face-to-face meeting for domestic political purposes but the White House should still have been more obliging. Mr Obama’s churlishness is fresh evidence that the US/UK special relationship is a one-way street.

We're taking our cues from Gordon Brown's media lap dogs?

The guy is a clown. If I was Obama, I'd give him season one of the American "The Office" and tell Hillary to deal with his toothy ass.

God bless that dead soldier, but if Britain is over there for any reasons outside of their own self interest, their political leaders deserve what they get. What exactly is it that the Brits think we owe them? Every time Gordon Brown wants a political photo op, we come rushing with our president?

There are legitimate reasons to criticize Barack Obama. This isn't one of them.

I don't think that even the smarminess of Gordon Brown has the capability of destroying the rich tradition between America and her mother country. The "special relationship" will last for centuries more, the idiocy of Gordon Brown notwithstanding.

I was responding to this: "What exactly is it that the Brits think we owe them?"

Courtesy and acknowledgment would be a good start, but Obama seems more interested in placating our enemies and apologizing for our bad behavior.

Waitaminute.

Is the narrative that I'm supposed to believe here that Barack Obama is destroying the relationship between America and Britain because he didn't jump when Gordon Brown needed a photo op? That he's throwing our "special relationship" down the tubes?

Come on...

Acknowledgment of what? That Gordon Brown has a political need?

America doesn't owe Gordon Brown photo ops with our president whenever he has a domestic political need. We've got much bigger fish to fry.

I don't think it matters who the present PM is. Brown is the head of the British government. One can respect the office without respecting the man.

Acknowledgment that the UK is our most stead-fast ally.

This is what our Seceratary of State is for. The United States does not owe it to Gordon Brown to make our president available for every photo op that his political team decides would be a benefit.
