There Is Much To Fear

The G20 conference starts this week. Look, here's some protesters, for proof.

Any FREE REPUBLIC or POWERLINE reader knows that this conference is the beginning of the end, because Barack Hussein Obama is going to use the might of America to convert the world economy to socialism, because he is a socialist. Oh what the heck, let's say it: a foreign-born communist.

The free market, as we know it, ends today. My advice is buy that big-screen now because starting tomorrow you'll have to wait for hours in the snow in a long big-screen line. And don't get me started on Blu-Ray players!

Actually, the real thing to fear is another lame gift to the British. The Obamas have to do pretty good this time to erase the memory of those 25 region 1 DVDs.

Guess you have to fear the 'ONLY' fear you posted, Piker.

In another show of class-less, the Obama's gave the 73-year old Queen AN IPOD. WHICH SHE ALREADY HAS.

BO said "Michelle has really been thinking this thriugh?" Really alot of thought there. IDIOTS.

"Barack Obama met the Queen at Buckingham Palace today and gave her a gift of an iPod loaded with video footage and photographs of her 2007 United States visit to Richmond, Jamestown and Williamsburg in Virginia. In return, the Queen gave the President a silver framed signed photograph of herself and the Duke of Edinburgh - apparently a standard present for visiting dignitaries.

It is believed the Queen already has an iPod, a 6GB silver Mini version she is said to have bought in 2005 at the suggestion of Prince Andrew.

Earlier, Mr Obama had spoken of his admiration for Her Majesty but indicated that his wife was handling the details of their royal meeting. "There's one last thing that I should mention that I love about Great Britain, and that is the Queen," he said at the end of his joint press conference with Gordon Brown.

"And so I'm very much looking forward to meeting her for the first time later this evening. And as you might imagine, Michelle has been really thinking that through -- because I think in the imagination of people throughout America, I think what the Queen stands for and her decency and her civility, what she represents, that's very important."

Mr Brown added: "Well, I know the Queen is looking forward to welcoming you and she's very much looking forward to her discussion with you."

There was widespread criticism in Britain and from Anglophiles in the US of Mr Obama's recent present to Mr Brown of a box set of classic American movies on DVDs that were not compatible with British DVD players."

Interesting. I don't connect the G20 to Obama at all. In fact, I don't think he is able enough to get much involved with that. Thus far he's shown abject immaturity with foreign relations and I don't think the "world" will be much interested in his input with world affairs. He'll Carter himself on world affairs. In fact, even Carter will end up looking smarter on foreign relations and he was one of the worst presidents in modern history on foreign relations.

The Queen's other iPod is 4 years old. That's ANCIENT in iPod terms. It probably runs on coal and has nothing but Gregorian chants on it.

Having said that, we could have done better with the gifts this time. Hopefully world leaders will be so grateful for not behing bossed around by the new guy that they'll forgive the tendency to get all state gifts at Best Buy.
