Withdraw all British troops from conflicts instigated by the US, demand the immediate withdrawal from Britain of all US military personnel/equipment, increase visa regulations for US citizens and start deporting non-essential Americans living in our country. The yanks and the frogs are scum in equal measure.

I wonder what he is after? Anyway, it's ok to have a best friend amount other friends!
It is a strange one though, is it possibly because Cameron won't bend over as far as Blair and his boys did?
Only time will tell.

I honestly don't know what it is with Obama when it comes to the UK. So far, during his term he has committed a series of slights, and faux pas against the UK, its leadership and its people. They range from this to various snubs to the whole gift debacle. Honestly, I'm at a loss as to why. As far as I know the majority of the UK seemed to be in his corner during the election - at least from what I could tell from the msm.
In other words, I can't think of what the UK (or its people or leadership) could have done to him to deserve the treatment.
To those in UK - speaking only for myself, I'm as mystified by this as you are. I don't know if he is just dumb, naive or bears some kind of unfounded grudge. Anyway, speaking as US citizen - I have nothing against the French, but the UK is our biggest ally - Obama is wrong on this.
