Last month South Korea snubbed Obama at the G20 conference.
Now it's Karzai who told Obama he doesn't have the time. After Obama flew ALL THE WAY TO AFGHANISTAN!!
How much lower can the Obama White House fall?
Will Julian Assange be the next to snub Obama?
Will George Soros write Obama off his Christmas card list?
How low can the White House go??

The president was originally scheduled to have a "working dinner" with Afghan President Hamid Karzai at his presidential palace in Kabul in this unannounced visit, and to meet with civilian personnel at the U.S. Embassy in the capital city. There are more than one thousand US government civilian employees here, from the State Department, USAID and nine other agencies -- a tripling since the president announced his new policy one year ago. But strong winds and low cloud cover made helicopter travel hazardous, so in the last few hours of the president's trip to Bagram on Air Force One, the Kabul part of the visit was scrapped.
Obama was originally scheduled to travel to Kabul to meet with President Hamid Karzai and greet U.S. embassy staffers, but was staying at Bagram because of poor weather conditions. He did, however, speak to Karzai via secure videoconference for 15 minutes.
The White House said rough weather forced the president to abruptly scrap his plans to meet Afghan President Hamid Karzai in the capital of Kabul. The White House determined the wind, dust and cloud cover made it unsafe for the president to fly by helicopter from the huge military complex in Bagram Air Field to the presidential palace.
