It's not Business, it's PERSONAL

Here's what the London Daily Telegraph says about the return of the Churchill bust:
The London Telegraph attempted an explanation: "Churchill has less happy connotations for Mr. Obama than those American politicians who celebrate his wartime leadership. It was during Churchill's second premiership that Britain suppressed Kenya's Mau Mau rebellion. Among Kenyans allegedly tortured by the colonial regime included one Hussein Onyango Obama, the President's grandfather."
And here's what I say...Mr. President, you are the President of the entire USA, not just for yourself. You dishonor all of us when you show a lack of good manners and insult our greatest ally.

How would we react if McCain had been elected and then decided to kick the ambassador from Vietnam out of the country? Or if Hillary had been elected (shudder) and she cut off all financial aid to any family named Lewinsky? We'd call it petty, and we'd be mad as hell that the President put personal feelings ahead of the good of the nation.

I suspect that the President didn't even watch any of the 25 movies he gave to Gordie.
