This Administration Needs Training Wheels

Remember that little dust up a couple weeks ago when the PM of Britain, Gordon Brown, came to visit? President Obama gave what some people thought was a pretty cheesy gift for this level of diplomacy: a boxed DVD set of favorite American movies. (I mean, did he send an assistant to run to Target real quick before the meeting?) Still, I guess the Mr. Brown was “touched” by the gift.

Enter Mark Steyn, always on the case.

Mark (Hemingway), re that Gordon Brown box set, I was happy to string along with the jokes that the U.S.-format DVDs wouldn’t work on U.K. machines. Yet, at the back of my mind, I didn’t quite believe that even the Obamateur Hour crowd at the White House could be that clueless.


Training wheels, anyone? I’m thinking that Target trip actually happened. “Wow, this whole leader of the free world thing is hard!”
