    Barack Obama

    Always classy, about as good a gift as a collection of 25 DVDs...

    Barack Obama met the Queen at Buckingham Palace today and gave her a gift of an iPod loaded with video footage and photographs of her 2007 visit to the United States. In return, the Queen gave the President a silver framed photograph of herself - apparently a standard present for visiting dignitaries.

    The Queen already has an iPod, a 6GB silver Mini version she bought in 2005 at the suggestion of Prince Andrew.

    Empty suit visits Europe. I'm surprised he didn't give her tupperware or a slinky. What a putz.

    The Queen should have said, that Obama's return of the bust (maybe a portrait) of Winston Churchill (during his first week of office), would have been sufficient, because it would loose some of it's dignity being in the same living space as him.

    'member when they gave Bush hell for being a little slow to deal with the intelligence plane the commies bumped into early in his first term?

    Hearing this makes me feel so much more respected. Guess the annointed one doesn't want to upset his comrades. Why doesn't he just wave the white flag now?


    "U.S. says to turn to UN if NKorea launches missile


    LONDON, April 1 (Reuters) - The United States will respond to any North Korean missile launch by raising the matter in the U.N. Security Council, a U.S. official said on Wednesday.

    North Korea has said it will launch a communications satellite between April 4 and 8 under its space programme. Washington and its allies in Asia see the plan as a disguised long-range missile test.

    The U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity on the sidelines of a G20 meeting in London, said Washington would react if North Korea launched a missile.

    "There are U.N. Security Council resolutions so I would expect we would be talking to the U.N. Security Council about how to respond," the official told reporters.

    "The president made clear we are deeply concerned about the prospective missile launch by the North Koreans ... That this is provocative to the region and contrary to U.N. Security Council resolutions ... There will be a reaction to it." (Reporting by Caren Bohan, writing by Elizabeth Piper; editing by Alison Williams)

    An American designed IPOD is the perfect gift for Obama to give to the biggest welfare recipient in the world.

    He should have given one to the GM CEO when Obama booted his butt.

    You guys are complaining about Obama's seemingly unsentimental gift giving, the real issue here is the Queen's arrogance! A picture of herself in a silver picture frame? Really your Majesty? Heck, the way the English give gifts, Obama should get himself on over to Cuba where Castro (or his brother, or Castro's look-alike, or Jimmy Hoffa) will give him some nice Cuban Cigars!

    Trappy Obama has taxed the be-Jesus out of the Tobacco products even the good cigar makers in Florida are starting to layoff because of the 40 cent tax increase per cigar, and this man was going to create 4.1 million jobs.
