Queen Elizabeth has had just about enough of the Obama’s and their hypocritical and low class behavior. I don’t think the Obamas will ever get themselves back in her good graces. Not only has she handed out subtle but pointed insults as the Obamas overstepped there boundaries during their visit to the U.K., she has masterfully managed to outline, for the world to see, the egregious violations of their own climate change rhetoric. While I’ve never thought much of the British Royal Family, they are beginning to grown on me.
WesternJournalism: England’s Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 this week and dignitaries from all over the world came to celebrate, including President Obama. However, this time, the birthday girl put her foot down and refused to allow the Obama entourage to have their way with how they arrived and comported.
In 2011, when the U.S. commander in chief came to town, he left a trail of destruction in his wake at Windsor Castle, the queen’s home and favorite of all residences. His helicopters, all six of them, scorched the earth at the castle and left landing-gear divots in the manicured lawn.
The Express reported the queen was not amused and required the president to use three helicopters during this year’s visit, to minimize the damage to the castle’s grounds. The Express’ Alix Culbertson wrote, “She said only three helicopters, including the president’s personal aircraft Marine One, could land on the lawn when Mr. Obama, 54, and his wife, Michelle, 52, came for dinner with the Queen and Prince Philip to celebrate her 90th birthday.” Also reported as a requirement was for the president’s security detail to remain outside the Windsor dining hall during the dining hour.
Apparently, it took some time for the Secret Service to come around to the matriarch’s way of thinking but eventually the queen’s demands were met. An inside source reportedly told the Express, “She rarely imposes her will but when she does people listen – it just took the US Secret Service agents a little time to realise that.” The president’s men complied and the event went over without any incidents reported save the complete shutdown of air traffic over London when the president’s choppers arrived. The choppers were also reportedly escorted by F-22 Raptors poised to shoot down any airborne threats against the president and first lady.
Just a day prior to the birthday celebration, Obama opined the United Kingdom should stay in the European Union, which resulted in the president being scorned for putting his nose where British lawmakers said it didn’t belong. The president has been urging lawmakers of the British parliament to remain in the EU, an urging that, as Western Journalism previously reported, resulted in parliamentarians drafting an open letter urging the U.S. president to mind his own business.
The queen’s birthday celebration was a reported success. And Obama even remarked how “adorable” Prince George was when the president had dinner with Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry the evening before the queen’s birthday bash.
