A Class Act……NOT

It seems that alienation is Obama’s middle name.  Well, right after the monikers of unsophisticated, rude, egotistical, embarrassing, unpatriotic and apologetic – but who’s counting. 

For his first state dinner, the President is hosting India’s President Singh with a large soiree at the White House tonight.  However, it doesn’t appear to be a true American event…only a Democratic and payback-to-donors event. 

Only one of the top Republican leaders in the Senate or House has been invited!  Not House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio, or his deputy, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, or Sen. John McCain of Arizona.  Even Senator Joe Lieberman, an crucial voice for conservative Democrats and Independents, was passed over for an invitation! 

When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell heard of this childish move, he refused to attend, using the graceful excuse that he had plans for Thanksgiving at home in Kentucky.  Note he was the only Republican leader issued an invitation.  

At least McConnell warranted an invitation…several key Democrats who have been vocal against the Health Care bill’s extreme policies were left off the list.  And that really must make the moderate Democrats take a second look at their party leadership.

Not to worry, really “important” people will be there – you know the Hollywood and liberal gang, the folks who are so integral in our governance.  I can’t wait to see who is on the Obama “A List” from the Hollywood bunch.  But, I could be completely wrong about the Hollywood angle…maybe Obama is attempting to recognize a bridge between Hollywood and the growing Bollywood filmaking industry of India?  Ha! 

This move proves just how petty Obama and company are.  They forget that he is supposed to represent the whole country – Dems, GOP, Indies, etc. – not just liberals and Democrats. 

This purposeful snub of the Republican leadership signals to the world countries that America is at war with herself.  It shows weakness. 

To those of us who follow protocol, it also continues to prove that the Obamas and their staff are completely void of any knowledge of proper etiquette.  The bows to foreign rulers, familiarity and touching of the Queen of England, and dissing of the British PM was only the warm-up. 

These actions, while they may seem trivial to some, are very important in the world of diplomacy.  They are also important to other countries where proper form and protocol is imperative.  Take Japan or Saudi Arabia for instance, a wrong move can break a deal by showing disrespect to their leader and country. 

I had hoped that the earlier faux pas was ignorance and that the Administration would learn better.  Now, I am convinced that the Obama folks don’t care about technicalities in their New World Order and that xxx
