Então mas Obama não era o Super-Homem?

por Samuel de Paiva Pires, em 08.03.09

Agradecendo ao André Azevedo Alves pela referência, e ao Luís Cardoso pela indicação do link desta notícia, aqui ficam as alegadas razões da falta de cordialidade de Obama para com Gordon Brown:

 

Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.

 

(...)

 

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama's inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to "even fake an interest in foreign policy".

 

(...)

 

British diplomats insist the visit was a success, with officials getting the chance to develop closer links with Mr Obama's aides. They point out that the president has agreed to meet the prime minister for further one-to-one talks in London later this month, ahead of the G20 summit on April 2.


But they concede that the mood music of the event was at times strained. Mr Brown handed over carefully selected gifts, including a pen holder made from the wood of a warship that helped stamp out the slave trade - a sister ship of the vessel from which timbers were taken to build Mr Obama's Oval Office desk. Mr Obama's gift in return, a collection of Hollywood film DVDs that could have been bought from any high street store, looked like the kind of thing the White House might hand out to the visiting head of a minor African state.

Mr Obama rang Mr Brown as he flew home, in what many suspected was an attempt to make amends.

 

Mas a melhor pérola vem mesmo de um dos oficiais do State Department:

 

The real views of many in Obama administration were laid bare by a State Department official involved in planning the Brown visit, who reacted with fury when questioned by The Sunday Telegraph about why the event was so low-key.


The official dismissed any notion of the special relationship, saying: "
There's nothing special about Britain. You're just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn't expect special treatment."

Gaffe ou prenúncio?

por Samuel de Paiva Pires, em 07.03.09

Pergunta o caro confrade António de Almeida na caixa de comentários, se as gaffes não tinham acabado com a saída de Bush. Depois destas, a cereja no topo do bolo, embora obviamente a culpa não seja de Hillary Clinton, mas do staff da Casa Branca:

Como se não bastasse a falta de cordialidade de Obama, também Hillary Clinton dá um ar da sua graça com gaffes atrás de gaffes. Novamente, via O Insurgente, em referência a este artigo:

 

Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows on her first visit to Europe as secretary of state when she mispronounced her EU counterparts’ names and claimed U.S. democracy was older than Europe’s.

(…)

A veteran politician, Clinton compared the complex European political environment to that of the two-party U.S. system, before adding:

“I have never understood multiparty democracy.


“It is hard enough with two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer than European democracy.”

The remark provoked much headshaking in the parliament of a bloc that likes to trace back its democratic tradition thousands of years to the days of classical Greece.

One working lunch later with EU leaders, Clinton raised more eyebrows when she referred to EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who stood beside her, as “High Representative Solano.”

She also dubbed European Commission External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner as “Benito.”
