There be plenty of Obama opinion on these boards and wanted to get you take on Cameron. Did he come across as a leader in tune with the worlds
Well, to be quite honest I tossed my telly out the door a year ago so all my news come from alternative sources on the web. Cameron's visit didn't
seem to stir up any emotions one way or the other, meaning, there wasn't anything about the visit on any of the sources I use for news.
I can only speak for myself but I avoid the MSM like the plague. I tend to believe that a lot of ATS folks are in the same boat.
I was, for a time, an ardent follower of British politics but Blair and Brown left me shaking my head in despair. Blair always struck me as out of his
league. A small fry trying desperately to worm his way into elite circles where he never seemed to quite fit- a say anything, do anything that would
grease the skids. His mannerisms always struck me as being akin to a puppet and whoever was pulling the strings was in the midst of an epileptic
seizure. The man just looked and acted the complete phony.
Gordon Brown reminded me of a gorilla in a man suit. A brutish bore of a sort. Same MO as Blair. Looking for his opportunity to become a power player
but didn't have Blair's good fortune to be on the ground at the onset of war. With the wars already in progress and Britain committed there was no
need for anyone to kiss his backside. Poor Gordon spent most of his time groveling and stepping on his man parts.
Where I sort of veered away from British politics was as Cameron took the reigns as PM. At least he's better looking than the previous two PM's.
I think everyone on this side of the Atlantic being so preoccupied with all the hot water we're in and Obama not being very popular at the moment may
have cast a shadow over Cameron's visit.
Did he come across as a leader in tune with the worlds problems?
Friend, show me one of these clowns who does- yours, ours or any of the others. The only leader who has impressed me since 2000 is Putin.
