I know some are caught up in what gift Obama gave to the Queen but aside from the gift giving he was also there to meet with other World leaders and those meetings went very well.
Renewed relationship with Russia and China:
After meeting with Medvedev: The leaders reaffirmed the countries' ties, saying in the statement that the "era when our countries viewed each other as enemies is long over." President Obama reinforced that message when talking to reporters after his meeting with Medvedev.
"Over the last several years, the relationship between our two countries has been allowed to drift," Mr. Obama said. "What I believe we've begun today is a very constructive dialogue that will allow us to work on issues of mutual interest."
So what do you think? Shouldn't the focus of this trip be on the real issues and NOT gift giving?

DRIFT?....yeah, the problem came when Russia DRIFTED it's happy butt into Georgia and caused a bunch a trouble! He needs to stop blaming the past administrationS and deal with the here and now. If he can work with them on his own merit, fine. But this 3rd grade tactic of "I didn't do it" is getting OLD! He ASKED for this job. Spent MILLIONS trying to get this job, deal with it and negotiate on your OWN merit and plan for the future, leave the caveats out of it!

I seem to recall that Georgia was the instigator in the recent conflict.

Rush and Hannity are intelligent men who througoughly research their stances. I suppose you turn to the vast knowledge of Maddow, Olbermann, and Micheal Moore?
