Barbara Simpson is in a particularly whining mood, and one of slinging misinformation as well, in her April 6 WorldNetDaily column:
While speaking in France, you said America has "shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe.
There you go again – groveling and apologizing for your country. Is it your genes, your religion or were you brought up that way?
Is demeaning your country a way to gain respect?
Of course, Simpson fails to note that Obama also criticized the anti-American attitudes of some Europeans.
Simpson also writes:
As for the gift to the queen? An i-Pod loaded with show tunes, videos of her prior D.C. visit and Obama's speeches.
P.S., she already had one.
To cover that fiasco, CBS reported the queen requested that gift.
Does anyone believe that?
Well, yeah, unless Simpson has any evidence to the contrary, which she doesn't.
Simpson further wrote:
First, Tony Blair's gift to the White House of a bust of Churchill was summarily returned to the British embassy. Obama didn't want it so he returned the gift?!?!?
In fact, as we've previously explained, the bust was on loan to the White House, not a permanent gift.
