The Obama Morning News || May 24, 2011

President Obama offered up a day long pep rally for Ireland, visiting the hometown of one of his ancestors and generally seeming tickled to be on the Emerald Isle. Obama made the Middle East the subtext during his daylong visit, pointing to the Northern Ireland peace process as an example of what can be.

Obama today gets a royal reception in London. In a joint op-ed today in the London Times, President Obama and British Prime Minister Cameron likened the Arab Spring to the Cold War and compared themselves to Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joined the rebuke against Obama’s Middle East speech, saying that “No one should set premature parameters about borders” in response to Obamas call for negotiations to start at the 1967 lines. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is set to speak today to Congress, where he’ll find a receptive audience.

Obama invited the Libyan rebels to open an office in Washington, but still won’t recognize them as the government of Libya.

The White House added a media adviser to work with liberal bloggers and push back on stories it doesn’t like.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty declared his presidential candidacy and took on Obama and popular programs. Team Palin pushed back against a tell all book by a former adviser they describe as a disgruntled man with an axe to grind.

  1. Re the “royal reception” in London, the report of which is out of Fox news:
    Surely reports vary on whether the Queen was smitten with the physical aggressiveness of Michelle Obama, when she met the Queen.
    And I don’t recall that the potus spent any time at all wishing to go to the Funeral of the President of Poland: he was on the golf course.

  2. The WhiteHouse now has a “minister of information” to counter anti-Obama political opinions implying that the MSM isn’t doing a good enough job.

    1. “minister of information” (for “Newspeak”)…?
      I figured the Obama White House had the “White House Propaganda (press) Corps” and the sycophant-biased MSM for all that Obama/Orwellian “Newspeak”…

  3. Mr. president has too much beer in Irland and hand over in London. How about the presidential election of year 2012 in US?
