administration incompetents

Looks like Obama is trying to "re-shape" the opinion of the US to the world. Primarily to make us a laughing stock?

Clinton Goofs on Russian Translation, Tells Diplomat She Wants to 'Overcharge' Ties

"Clinton said earlier she was presenting the gift because it "represents what President Obama and Vice President Biden and I have been saying and that is, 'We want to reset our relationship.' And so we will do it together." 

Ugh....

The two gift problems so close together certainly have the look of "rookie" mistakes.

Question is, can we hold out until we can put grown-ups back in charge?

Can you imagine the uproar in the press and from the left if McCain and his Secretary of State made the identical boneheaded moves.

Talk about a "free pass"

Personally, I can see the DVD to UK being a story and an editorial item a few late night monologs, then going away.

It is a Gaffe, no more, and can be attributed to lack of experience.

The Clinton one is more of an eyebrow raiser, you would think she would have the savvy to take a personal hand. Or maybe it is more telling and should be listed with her not knowing who invented the car or how long democracy has been in Europe.

It's a new administration and this could all be those embarrassing baby steps.

There is an appropriate level of coverage, and archiving in case this becomes more then it is now.

Your right Wizard (I'm saying that a lot these days). The party affiliation changes how the MSM covers this.

It gets far worse. The London Telegraph reports that a State Department Official reacted with fury when questioned and was quoted as saying: "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."

Obama "Too Tired"

Yeah, I read that one this Morning.

Although, it is a consistent message. We are the USA and we dont give a crap...?
