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.
British responds to Obama 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 article about Obama’s gift.
Brown gets films
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.
