King Of America

I know this may be getting a bit redundant, but the boorish way in which the Obamas received, and treated, a visiting foreign dignitary, and his wife, is more proof of the mounting evidence that the President is beginning to think of himself, not as a public servant to the citizens of this country, but as a reigning Monarch over his lowly subjects.

Now, he's just itching for a visit with Her Majesty, the Queen of England, but I'm wondering how well that's going to turn out, considering this statement by a State Department official concerning the shabby, disinterested, reception of Prime Minister Gordon Brown, when questioned about it by The Sunday Telegraph:

"There's nothing special about Britain. You're just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn't expect special treatment."


After hearing that, the Queen may not be all that interested in sharing a cup of tea with the leader of one of the 'other 190 countries in the world,' who just happens to be coming across as an ill-bred boor, interested in no one but himself.

Oh God, but I do love being king!
King Henry ll (The Lion in Winter)
