President Obama taken to task for criticizing PM
Editor: U.S. President Barack Obama insulted Prime Minister Stephen Harper when he didn’t realize the camera is running.
I have sent the following email to the president.
Dear Mr. Obama,
As one of your “good neighbour Canadians,” I have been watching and following your tenure as the president of the U.S.A.
You have been very successful in leading us to believe that finally, the U.S.A. has a president who is elegant, well-spoken and whose image is one of sophistication and couth.
As such, I am shocked and disappointed to learn of the insults you made about our prime minister last month. It is disgraceful that a man in your position, who claims to value the relationship and friendship of your northern neighbours, would make such immature and rude comments about Harper, behind his back.
As a result, I will never again hold you in such high esteem as I have over the past four years. You have disappointed me and millions of other Canadians.
By the way, Mr. President, if you are not aware, 10,000 Americans will be murdered by guns on American soil in 2013. Perhaps you should worry about that, rather than what another world leader looks like.
