When British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, came to the U.S., the custom of exchanging culture-specific and near-heirloom quality gifts became a joke on the American people. Gordon Brown came bearing the following gifts for Barack Obama:
"The unique present delighted Mr Obama because oak from the Gannet's sister ship, HMS Resolute, was carved to make a desk that has sat in the Oval Office in the White House since 1880.
Mr Brown also handed over a framed commission for HMS Resolute and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.
In addition, Mr Brown and his wife showered gifts on the Obama children giving Sasha and Malia an outfit each from Topshop and six children's books by British authors which are shortly to be published in America."
What did douchebag Obama give in return? A classless, juvenile "gift" of a 25-DVD set of American movie classics. Oh, and the most ridiculous part? The movies given to PM Brown were not even ones that could be played in Great Britain. You see, Barack is so retarded that he thought he could call up his local Blockbuster or online-order the set on Amazon without even thinking about the difference in formats between American DVD and British DVD formats. Do you think Barry really gives a shit? I know he doesn't.
And don't even GET me started on Michelle giving Mrs. Brown two "Marine 1" helicopter models to give their sons as toys. As Beck's guest, Nile Gardiner, suggests, this is AMATEUR HOUR in the White House! Carelessness or intended insult to the Browns and Britain, it really doesn't matter. The damage has been done, and Barack remains the clueless brat on the playground saying "I got all the toys and you can't have any...unless I say so."
What a juvenile, infantile, classless, arrogant prick, lack-of-grace this administration has shown! I am following Glenn's example/suggestion that we ALL write the British Embassy in America to apologize for Barack's callousness! In case you don't capture it in the video, you can write the British Embassy at the address here, and tell them "hey, we LOVE you Britains, and we totally respect you."
Glenn said we should tell them "we don't think you suck," but said we could put it in more flowery words. I agree, but the idea is the same.
Here is the address to write:
3100 Massachusetts Avenue N.W.
Washington, DC 20008
Check my blog for a form document to download and mail. Sure, this is not an email response, but certainly you can spare .47 to send the Brits an email that we are embarrassed at Obama's shameful treatment of Gordon Brown.
He does NOT speak for the rest of us patriots.
