On Gifts, Gaffes & Goofs

Greetings puny Earthlings, Remulak MoxArgon here and I'm going to take a moment to talk to you about gifts, and when you're a political leader, how they can be used against you.

Much has been made about President Obama's return of the bust of Winston Churchill to Britain, the wrong format DVD pack he gave to UK PM Gordon Brown, and the uber-lame gift of an iPod (containing his own speeches) to Queen Elisabeth.

Now I know that heads of government and heads of state are hard to shop for. They literally are the people who have everything, but that's why government's have special offices of protocol that do nothing but handle such things.

But get this Obama's administration not only hasn't filled vacancies in the White House protocol office, they DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAD A PROTOCOL OFFICE.

Yep. Not only is Barack Obama ignorant of the workings of the government he is supposed to head, he's also put himself in a position where he can be taken down by his own people.

Now you're probably wondering why I said that, well the answer is simple.

Think for a moment about who is the Secretary of State.

Who is supposed to know about the protocol office, because it's their job to know such things?

Who should also at least know about the protocol office's existence because she was first lady for 8 years?

That's right...


I know the old maxim about keeping your friends close, but your enemies closer, but you don't give them a sharp knife and tell them to watch your back.

Keep watching the skies, because we're watching you, and Barack, you better start watching Hillary.
