Our Immature President

In this very rough economic times, we needed a grown up to lead this country, what we got is a petty immature man who is behaving like a 12 year old.

Let's start with the gift gaffe that has got our strongest ally, the Brits, into a uproar.

First, the White House returned a bronze bust of Winston Churchhill given to President Bush by PM Tony Blair. The bronze bust symbolized the very beginning of our relationship with our strongest ally recognizing the strong relationship between Churchhill and Roosevelt.

Obama returned it, after all, it was given to President Bush. That started the Brits off to the races a few weeks ago.

Then the PM from Great Britian shows up and Obama hands him a Walmart door prize of 25 DVDs.

The Brits are really in an uproar over this. They are ticked that Obama not only handed their PM the Walmart CDs, but then cancelled a press conference because of snow. Obama also refused standard protocol of photos with the alternating flags.

This is not just a little joke to the Brits:

The president's "exceptionally rude treatment" of the prime minister will have consequences, predicted British journalist Iain Martin. "We get the point, sunshine. We're just one of many allies and you want fancy new friends. Well, the next time you need something doing, something which impinges on your national security, then try calling the French, the Japanese, or best of all the Germans."

Oh boy.

You are going to love the excuse the White House gave for slighting our most precious ally in the world:

Barack Obama 'too tired' to give proper welcome to Gordon Brown

Oh that is good...Our President needs a nap.

If you really want to see an example of our new president's immaturity, look no further than Rush Limbaugh. Yes, our new president and his staff are trading insults with Rush.

Of course, not only has the White House targeted Rush Limbaugh but add CNBC's Rick Santelli and CNBC's Jim Cramer. Mr. Cramer was a supporter of President Obama, but even he has had enough.

Jim Cramer stated: "It is amatuer hour at our darkest moment".

These people have offended the president, so they must be dealt with.

Seriously, is this what the most powerful office in the world feels is a priority? Slamming political pundits because they hurt your feelings? Good grief!

I am beginning to believe the real reason Obama sent the bronze bust back to the Brits is to clear himself some room for future spitball fights with Limbaugh.

Still not convinced that we have a twelve year old running the country, perhaps Obama will take you on his "spiffy" new ride, Air Force One, just to convince you!

"Hey guys, what do you think of my -- this spiffy ride here?" the president asked the group of reporters traveling with him on the presidential plane.
