Statecraft by Obama: How Long Before

He's a national embarrassment.

"The American president is acting like an elephant in a porcelain shop," said Norwegian public-relations expert Rune Morck-Wergeland. "In Norwegian culture, it's very important to keep an agreement. We're religious about that, and Obama's actions have been clumsy. You just don't say no to an invitation from a European king. Maybe Obama's advisers are not very educated about European culture, but he is coming off as rude, even if he doesn’t mean to."

Clearly, this "President" is not only in over his head; he's now floundering seriously.

While slapping the King of Norway is not the worst possible faux pas, and insulting the Queen of England and her Prime Minister could be written off to "new-in-office confusion," the pattern is getting more ominous.

The SDI reverse in Eastern Europe, the Honduras 180-degree-miss, stiffarming Israel, pushing an Iran/Nork solution off, and off, and off...and BOWING to the Arabs and Japanese--all are signs of someone who is incompetent.

At some point in time, that will have serious repercussions. REALLY serious.
