At least he made the Brits good and mad. More than Obie can claim. I knew, just knew, the guy had to have some redeeming social importance.
Trust a Utah'n to be tactless enough to show up in London and make it clear that he considers himself an emissary from headquarters to a rather inconsequential branch office, entitled -- called upon, in fact- - to give his managerial knucklehead views about security measures and so on to the understrappers.
The Brits are quite sensitive about this stuff, since, after Israel, they are the most groundlessly conceited client state we have, and their absurd vanity is easily offended.
Obromney is of course a U of Chicago guy, where I can assure you that parvenu Anglophilia is, or was, in my day, a pandemic illness. A guy from that world would never wish to appear ignorant of Brit shibboleths, or indifferent to Brit self-regard, if he could help it. But Rombama, the ayatollah of Mormarollah, to his credit, clearly doesn't give a shit about this trifling little Ruritania and its quaint folkways.
