Is this any way to treat an allie like the British PM? Obama is nicer to Hamas and Iran. He ether called Hamas on his cell phone or at least had one of his staff talk to them and offering to talk to Iran. Then to treat Britain this way tells me that Obama has some learning to do! Shame on you Obama!
