Why the US is laughed at around the world.

Imagine if this had been George Bush or remember what the press did to Romney when he visited London earlier this year.  This time around it's the President who once again brings embarrassment to this once great country but not a word from the press.

Progressives have never seen a tax they don't like, a tax they don't want to increase or a new tax they want enacted.  The only requirement that the tax be levied on someone else, not them.

I would think the potential embarrassment of not being aware of..before hand..of what is and what is not appropriate in the culture of the county you are visiting..along with spending  time..again, before hand..on learning how to correctly pronounce the names of the leaders you will be meeting, would be enough to keep these blunders from occurring.

But expect the ol arrogance factor played a role in these unacceptable short comings.

LMAO.

Still feeling the sting of that defeat are we?
I doubt if Obo even knew the lady, let alone
how to pronounce her name.  Nor cared.

Laughing??
Don't think so.
This is the foreign diplomacy the world has
been looking for.  Where they're not all looked
at as 4th world countries.
PNAC, neocons and the Bushies may regard
them as 4th world.  Obo does not.
