I think it was Ed Morrissey (CPAC’s blogger of the year) who said last week that Oscar Goodman should at least “honor the office” of the president, when Goodman (mayor of Las Vegas) refused to meet with Obama.
I ask you: How do you “respect the office” when you see this picture? And this is not a new behavior on Obama’s part. He has been consistent in his lack of class toward allies. The only time he’s appeared presidential is when he set up his photo-op in the middle of the night, at Dover AFB to salute our fallen heros.
But the Dalai Lama is more than an ally, he’s a holy man.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The Obama’s are waaaaaaaay out of their league. Ushering the Dalai Lama out the same door as the garbage is beyond classless and the height of insulting. I’m a Catholic and this offends me almost as much as if he’d done this to the Pope.
