White House giving gifts

I wrote a post a while back about the gifts that Michelle Obama is getting and not reporting.

On that post I had a link to the Ronald Reagan library that shows how they handled the ceremonial gifts that they received from other countries. I suggest reading it before you read the following article about the gift giving between the Obamas and the Browns. Wow, if they treat our friends like this how will they treat our enemies. Knowing them, probably with better gifts.

I am just shocked that there is no one in the White House that is directing these interacts so they don’t come across this way in the newspaper of another country. Also, remember that how they are portrayed in other papers will influence how they are seen by the readers of said newspapers.

Updated to add this article.  I guess I wasn’t too off base about how he would treat countries that harbor terrorists that kill Americans.  Several members of his team are heading to Syria to open up dialogue and make plans for a meeting with Obama.  Can’t wait to see the gift they get.

    I think many Americans are more annoyed than the Brits about the reception Gordon Brown received, but it does reflect poorly on Obama, that said, most of us Brits know that whilst he was elected to represent the people of America, he cannot claim to speak for every American and we take solace in that.
