Brazil Added To The List Of US Allies Obama Has Alienated

Remember during the campaign when we were told about all that smart diplomacy the Obama Administration was going to practice, as opposed to that stto-pid cowboy George W. Bush.

Well, so far the Chosen One has been humiliated by Russia, Iran and China while insulting and/or alienating our allies and trading partners Israel, India, Poland, the Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Columbia and Britain.

Now, we can add Brazil to the list:

After the Gordon Brown debacle, you would think the White House would put a little more
thought into planning for visits by visiting heads of state. But Brazil is
already
grumbling
about the treatment of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who
will sit down with Obama this weekend and is the first Latin American leader to
visit the White House under the new administration.

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.


Un-freaking-believable.

Here we have an important trading partner of long standing, the world's fifth-most-populous nation and ninth-largest economy and one with a brand new significant oil find that could help ween us off of Hugo Chavez's Venezuelan crude...as well as lots of ethanol it wants sell if Obama is willing to work on moderating the stiff 53 cent-a-gallon tariff the US slapped on it. And he pulls this amateur crap?

Desculpe Brasil ... pedimos desculpas para o nosso presidente da má educação.

Please excuse the bad manners of our president...he's a punk and a novice and doesn't know how to treat our friends.
