Indefatigable in their quest to alienate every ally the US has, the Obama administration is serially aggravating each one, one at a time:
Silva aides said the trip was pushed forward from Tuesday because of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday – making Latin America once again look like an afterthought. Then, the White House announcement misspelled his name as “Luis Ignacio” and put “Lula” – a nickname that decades ago became a legal part of the Brazilian leader’s name – in quotes.
Is Obama Irish? Or Catholic? Don’t they have proofreaders at the White House? Or is it because it’s day 53?
Lula has gone on the record saying
“it’s been a privilege to have been among the presidents who are building good relationships with the United States.”
Brazil is becoming a leader in Latin American diplomacy, and Lula has distanced himself from from Hugo Chávez’s highly inflammatory style of politics. So please, could someone explain to me, what is the matter with the Obama White House??
