    I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would see this happen in Washington again. I'm not sure anymore. I know most people don't like to believe this could happen, but look how far we've come in the last year. I have never seen so much disregard for the ordinary citizen in my lifetime. I'm really afraid for our country this time around.

    Armed march in Washington DC? I'm curious how the local gun laws will affect that?

    Well if that scares you then read this. I received it in an email this morning I have tried to verify it on snopes. I don't know how to ask the question.

    It is if nothing else a very thought provoking and interesting read.

    NEITHER TRUSTED NOR FEARED NOR RESPECTED

    Written by Jack Kelly

    "Let me be clear: I'm not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States. But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama's reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue."

    --London Daily Telegraph editor Alex Singleton, March 11.

    One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama's animosity toward Great Britain, presumably because of what he regards as its sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).

    One of Barack Hussein Obama's first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11. He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags.

    The president was "too tired" to grant the leader of America's closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.

    Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen. Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as "rudeness personified."

    There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations in September.

    "The prime minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were rejected by the White House," said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr. Obama's "churlishness is unforgivable," Mr. Hughes said.

    The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week (3/02) when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, a Hugh Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina's specious claim to the Falkland Islands, a British dependency since 1833.

    The people who live in the Falklands, who speak English, want nothing to do with Argentina. When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by force, the British--with strong support from President Ronald Reagan--expelled them.

    "It is truly shocking that Obama has decided to disregard our shared history," wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. "Does Britain's friendship really mean so little to him?"

    One could ask, does the friendship of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?

    "I recently asked several senior administration officials, separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in office," wrote Jackson Diehl, (deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post), on Monday (3/08). "A lot of hemming and hawing ensued."

    One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his contempt for Obama is not a secret. Another named German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, "Merkel too is conspicuously cool toward Obama."

    Obama certainly doesn't care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has betrayed on missile defense. Honduras and Israel also can attest that he's been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful friend. Ironically, our relations with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have never been worse.

    Russia has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama's abandonment of missile defense. Russia and China won't support serious sanctions on Iran. Syria's support for terrorism has not diminished despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has responded to our efforts at "engagement" by deepening its ties to North Korea.

    And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their contempt for him.

    For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is not trusted by our allies or feared by our adversaries, and is respected by neither. Americans, understandably focused on the dismal economy and Obama's efforts to nationalize health care, have yet to notice. They will. [and soon]

    Jack Kelly is a former Marine and a former deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force in the Reagan administration. He is national security writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Kind of makes you wonder if the health issue is as important his failing foreign policies. As I said thought provoking.

    Bulge I didn't write it I received it in an email. It caused me to think is the Health care as important as he tries to make it sound or does he have a greater agenda.

    Like destroying America's foreign relations with our allies to further the agendas of his Muslim brothers.

    Thank you, Bob.

    I wrote a letter to the British Embassy a while back, apologizing for the President's behavior and stating that his was certainly not the opinion of most Americans. I got a nice note back.

    Thje Kenyan connection explains it all. After all, his father weas a Kenyan communist! I wonder how far the apple fell from the tree!

    Obama has people focused on the Healthcare so he can blindside them with the other things he is pulling off while they are all occupied ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
