From Obama's gift of a 25 DVD set of videos to Gordon Brown (encoded in a way that can't be viewed on players made in Britain) as a momento - Brown's to Obama was an ornate carved wooden ship with historical documents attached, to Obama's constantly rescheduling and coming late to meetings with foreign dignataries, to Hilary's incorrectly translated "reset" button given to the Soviets and many other cultural gaffes - we find that experience does make a difference.
The support people who have been hired may have been vetted well about their extreme left wing beliefs but not in actual knowledge - about anything. Here's a doozie.
Hilary Clinton our SOS apparently has never heard of the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico and its significance. In addition to not knowing of the "miracle" within the garments...
Leaving the basilica half an hour later, Mrs. Clinton told some of the Mexicans gathered outside to greet her, “you have a marvelous virgin!”
Clinton's and Obama's staff personnel are not doing their due diligence regarding international etiquette and culture. Frankly we're looking like stumble bum, Hawaiin shirted, loud mouthed tourists on the international stage. George Bush may have mispronounced words now and then but he always got this stuff right.
Perhaps when Obama said Friday that he's not going legalize marijuana maybe he meant outside the White House.
