The American Spectator

Barack Obama was supposed to be America's answer to the suave, European head of state. A debonair gentleman of the world, he would charm even the most sophisticated foreign leaders and prove, finally, that the United States is developed culturally, not just economically.
Then he gave some DVDs..--- a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks." ...
But even worse, Obama refused to hold a joint press conference with Brown or invite him for an official White House dinner. And to top it all off, he sent back a bust of Churchill that was lent to the White House after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Russia Today wrote that week, "Despite Barack Obama's eloquent elocution, ivy school credentials and electric charisma, there is talk that he lacks the most crucial element of any great leader: judgment."
Since March, Obama's social gaffes have continued. In April he bowed to the Saudi king;
In July he was photographed staring at the rear end of a 16-year-old girl
in October he refused to meet with the Dalai Lama;
and this month he sent Hillary Clinton to attend the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall,
Obama might be cultivating world opinion by insulting his own country in speech after speech and undermining its interests with his foreign policy, but the joke is on him. For his transparent disdain for other world leaders and customs is making him every bit the image of the buffoonish American president he tries so hard to convince the world he is not.
MichNews.com Obama's Betrayal of America Growing Exponentially:
... By his refusal to protect the USA and its people from its enemies, Obama has abrogated his contract as POTUS and is, for all intents and purposes, siding with said enemies. He has become this country’s greatest enemy to date. This is betrayal--of and in the highest order--of the USA and its people.
