I thought Foreign Relations were supposed to be what Obama and Hillary know best?

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown gave Obama the following gifts:

An ornamental desk pen holder made from the oak timbers of Victorian anti-slaver HMS Gannet, once named HMS President

The framed commission for HMS Resolute, a vessel that came to ssymbolize Anglo-US peace when it was saved from ice packs by Americans and given to Queen Victoria.

First edition set of the seven-volume classic biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.

Obama gave British Prime Minister Gordon Brown:

(Who’s not a film buff) A boxed set of 25 classic American movies on DVD.

Michelle Obama gave Gordon Brown’s kids a plastic toy replica of Marine One from the White House gift store.

Hillary Clinton in a backhanded slap towards President Bush gave Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov a "Reset Button" but forgot to have someone proof read the Russian translation which when misspelled turned out to be the word "Overcharged".

That about describes my feelings for the comedy of errors that is the Obama administration...WHAT A BUNCH OF HOCKEY HELMET WEARING RETARDS!!!!

Update:

Ari R: Like most looney Left Wing Liberals, you mistake Saturday Night Live for a news program. But hey thanks for showing your A$$!

Update 2:

The Woo: The only people more retarded than Barry, Michelle and Hillary are the people defending them.

    They are the last two people that we need in foreign affairs. The evidence was right there during the election when Russia went into Georgia.

    Obama issued a statement that basically said both sides should work it out.

    John McCain issued a statement that pretty much said Russia should get the hell out of there.

    Two days later, Obama said the same thing as McCain, realizing he didn't say the right thing at first. Hmm....

    Obama, the Ultimate appeaser. Worse than Neville Chamberlain.

    That's right. They were the experts based on the 'vast' experience. Yeah, right. Hillary doesn't have any foreign experience and barely has any Senate experience. President Obama doesn't even have that. They really are coming across as amateurish.

    Bush managed to insult foreign officials personally with the stupid stuff he said. Don't even really have to give you a quote for that one. Look it up yourself. Besides, Obama's strong suit was supposed to be domestic affairs. Economic theory and law and stuff. McCain was running on foreign policy experience from being in the navy and Nam.

    Oh no, not the pope!

    Giving poor gifts doesn't demonstrate a poor knowledge of foreign affairs, but don't talk crap, it has always been acknowledged as one of Obama's weaker points anyway.

    And mistranslations are amusing, but hardly worthy of calling Clinton a retard. Wasn't it JFK who claimed he was a doughnut?
