    The only drivel was in what the Obamas gave the Browns.

    The Brits gave Obama three historic gifts.

    The first was a pen holder, carved from the timbers of HMS Gannet, an anti-slavery ship, built in Chatham shipyards 130 years ago. Timber from its sister vessel, HMS Resolute, was used in the Oval Office desk.

    The second gift was the commissioning paper for the HMS Resolute, a Royal Navy ship that came to symbolize British-American goodwill when it was rescued by the U.S. from icebergs and given to Queen Victoria.

    The third gift was a first edition of Martin Gilbert's seven-volume biography of Winston Churchill.

    Obama on the other hand gave 25 dvd's that you can purchase anywhere.

    I agree, bulge. No class. They gave Brown's children plastic replicas of the Marine 1 helicopter from the White House gift shop. Nice.

    He probably bought the CD's out of a car trunk on one of the corners in D.C. if he paid for them at all. Bulge.

    I wait for the day when he makes the HUGE blunder and the pukes even don't like him any more.

    Hilary already did hers, gave the Russian a Reset button with the wrong word on it.

    Sabotaged by an interpreter, LOL.

    Maybe she should teach Ebonics.

    PBB,

    The average voter will not believe you when you tell them that the media's quiding priciple is.............

    DON'T let the FACTS interfer with the STORY!

    the quote I hear all the time.........

    IT'S in the paper/TV news, it MUST BE TRUE!


    AL

    Then there is the one TV personality that is now a trader to the cause, because one day he woke up and said I am tired of the lying, and wrote a book on how he lyed to the country for all his carrer, and is now a leading expert for industry, on how to exspose the media's lyes. I think his name is Stussel or something like that.

    Al you're thinking about John Stossel on 20-20 on ABC. He's one of the few conservatives on a network news or news magazine show...Bill

    Obama also sent a bust of Sir Winston Churchill back to the British Embassy. The bust had been in the oval office on loan from Tony Blair as a sign of solidarity after the 9/11 attacks. Obama replaced it with a bust of Abraham Lincoln. He also did not do the customary appearance in the Rose Garden with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. He is going out of his way to disrespect the British. I am appalled at his lack of respect and common sense.

    Well he didn't put a "cap in his ass" or offer him some "blow" from his collage days. Anyway he only knows the receiving end giving is not in his vocabulary. His charitable donation figures show that very well.
