Changing the nature of foreign relations

Jerry Stratton, March 9, 2009

You know, when President Obama said he wanted to change our relations with other countries, I assumed he meant improve them, not make them worse.

The DVD/toy helicopter thing could be ascribed to a simple lack of communication—although the fact that those gifts were leaked by the White House is troubling—but the red button is crazy. There is a serious case of the emperor’s clothes there; somebody must have realized that giving a big red button to the Russians invoked symbolism best avoided. Has no one in the Clinton team seen a movie in the last thirty years? Doesn’t she know what red buttons are used for in international diplomacy?
