How badly do we want to anger England?

http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/22474/

Please read and weigh in. I can't believe we'd INSIST on sending a gift back to one of our allies. You don't give back gifts, it's rude.

Not to mention the insulting gifts we presented to our allies!

  • My neighbor is from England she was telling me her dad emailed her and said they were calling Michelle Obama Lady MacBeth on TV... I just heard Glenn say it on TV. ROFL!! They found it rude and inappropriate. They feel Obama snubbed them with rude cheap gifts that refelcted Hollywood only, NOT the USA.

    Nice Obama, total lack of class...

  • They are already making fun of Obama, he doesn't care. Hillary aint no better with her reset button from the dollar store. Cheap, tacky, thoughtless and classless. I hope they continue to make a$$es of themselves, they're doing a jolly good job mate!!

  • I'm still waiting to see where it says citizens of these countries are offended or angered.
    I realize Fox News needs to fill air time and obviously they can't go around frying copies of next year's budget all day but come on, this is NOT news.

  • "I'm still waiting to see where it says citizens of these countries are offended or angered."

    Okay. Here you go: http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/iain_martin/blog/2009/03/04/president_barack_obama_just_plain_rude_to_britain_dont_call_us_in_future

    This is out of one of Britain's main newspapers. An excerpt: " ... the White House's very odd and, frankly, exceptionally rude treatment of a British PM. Squeezing in a meeting, denying him a full press conference with flags etc. The British press corps, left outside for an hour in the cold, can take it and their privations are of limited concern to the public.

    But Obama's merely warmish words (one of our closest allies, said with little sincerity or passion) left a bitter taste ..."

  • I don't think WE want to anger England, but the Obama team DO want to diss England. I think WE would like to send a great gift to England on our own, as citizens, to distance ourselves from the Obama action. Brian Sussman was asking for suggestions for meaningful, thoughtful gifts to give England which would be on a par with the VERY considerate & thoughtful gifts which England's PRIME MINISTER Gordon Brown gave to Obama - perhaps if anyone has a bright idea they could email it to Glenn Beck ( me@glennbeck.com ) and we might identify a way to show our good will. This is becoming a big deal for the British, and it would be excellent to let them know that this Foreign policy blundering and downright insulting is NOT the American attitude.
