Why insult the Brits?

Prime Minister Brown of Great Briton, our sister country, gave Obama gifts which is the normal way of doing things. His gifts were of historic value of our country. Our president in retun gave the PM 25 DVD's which the PM can not play in his home due to differences in dvd makers. Obama also returned the bust given to GW of Churchill as a show of unity for 9/11. As one would expect, the people and media of GB are highly insulted at the snub of our president. Why would our president do such a thing to one of our greatest allies?

  • Since PM Brown is losing his eyesight, I found it tasteless. Also, Obama's gift doesn't have the significance that a gift to the PM of another country should, IMO.

  • Well, in the article, apparently we have a long tradition of insulting the Brits. Hopefully, and I feel pretty confident in saying this, Obama and his wife will make it up to them. And I am guessing it would be in private, because if I make a mistake, I try not to blare it from the rooftops either.

  • The Obama's do not like the British because of their history in the slave trade and colonialism.
