So the buzz before the election was how great Obama was, and how smart he was, and how it was going to be nice not having the President do stupid stuff to embarrass the US….
then he goes on late-night television, and insults every mentally or physically challenged athlete who’s ever competed in the Special Olympics…
and then he decides to give a gift to a visiting foreign leader. PM Gordon Brown brought President Obama a penholder carved from the sister ship of the slave ship that provided the wood for Obama’s desk. The President’s return gift, to a foreign visitor with vision problems? A set of 25 classic American movies. On American DVDs. “What? Wrong region? What do you mean ‘Wrong region’?”
I’ve heard and read so many times about the awesome staff an American president has at their beck and call, and they couldn’t have come up with A) a better gift for a visually-challenged man, or B) DVDs that will actually play when their visitor goes home?
