Did someone say the Brits love Obama?

Obama's top ten insults to Britain. Follow the link, to long to post.

Without a shadow of a doubt, Barack Obama has been the most anti-British president in modern American history. The Special Relationship has been significantly downgraded, and at times humiliated under his presidency, which has displayed a shocking disregard for America’s most important partner and strategic ally.

There are a multitude of reasons for President Obama’s dismissive approach to the UK, and here are a few: an obsession with engaging and appeasing America’s enemies rather than cultivating allies; personal animosity towards Britain because of his grandfather’s role as a Mau Mau supporter in 1950’s colonial Kenya; Democrat resentment over British support for the Bush Administration over Iraq; left-wing disdain for the idea of Anglo-American exceptionalism and world leadership; support for supranational institutions such as the European Union over the supremacy of the nation state

  • I don't even think he's anti-British, i think he's just ignorant and doesn't take the time to educate himself on other customs or even OUR customs and constitutional laws before diving into things. He and his die hard supporters are a perfect example of the blind leading the blind. *face palm*

  • That is The Telegraph's opinion . An old-fashioned right-wing newspaper only read by the elderly with nostalgic jingoistic dreams of The Empire . Not typical of British opinion at all. Used to have a good crossword puzzle though,
