Buckingham Palace Announces US State Visit to Great Britain

The press secretary to H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has announced a State Visit to the United Kingdom that the Obama's will undertake May 24-26, 2011.

The community agitators currently occupying the White House could learn much from Queen Elizabeth about service, duty, and embodying a nation's noblest and highest ideals. Unfortunately, we have little hope that they will. Given the President's consistently boorish behavior toward Great Britain and its leaders, we wonder if he will be returning his desk given to the White House by Queen Victoria, or the Capitol building's Minton floor tiles also given by Great Britain.  Or will he present Her Majesty with another ipod loaded with The One's most memorable speeches?

We dread this ghetto trash representing the United States in any forum, much less to America's closest and most faithful ally. Our British readers should know that this couple in no way represents America, as the world will unmistakably see in November 2012.


The President of the United States, President Barack Obama, has accepted an invitation from The Queen to pay a State Visit to the United Kingdom from Tuesday 24th May to Thursday 26th May 2011.

The President will be accompanied by Mrs Obama and will stay at Buckingham Palace.
