Did Obama give him DVDs that would even work in England? They use a different system in Europe so DVDs made for America won't play in a British DVD player.

As for the gifts, all I can say is REALLY? During this time of crisis in so many ways, we are focusing on silly pleasantries? I would rather learn more about what the men talked about! This topic deserves an :oy:

Grandpa, I think they are the kind you catch with "gaffs" - which are used in seal hunting. (long pole with a hook on it). This would be, of course, as opposed to "gaffes" which are verbal blunders, a faux pas, etc. **** On another note, that ridiculous case about that poor 9 year old girl...they excommunicate everyone but her (due to her age) and the pedophile rapist ar*ehole that did it to her. And why? Because pedophiles and rapists aren't as massive on the sin scale as abortion, according to the Bishop. Its probably the sickest, most revolting thing I've read today so far. Then again, I've only been up an beat out Hillary telling the EU that the USA was the oldest democracy. (I was horrified to read that....was she thinking only of France? There's 27 countries in the EU, for pity's sake. I mean even if you're weak on history, if you don't know by now that many native American tribes (you know, those guys we bulldozed) practiced a form of democracy not so dissimilar to ours...that Sumeria and Sparta both had primitive, related democratic systems...oh yeah, and this little hideaway called Greece, I think they know something about democracy. I heard it from a nit, who had just managed to escaped a gaff. :S K I :

em1282, Colonel John M. Chivington, that perpetrator of the infamous Sand Creek Massacre, is famous for his saying “nits make lice”. He was referring to indian children, what are the nits you are referring to?

Clearly the Gift from Great Britain was well thought out, and meant to convey some sense of history that would have particular significance to President Obama. These are not gifts you could get at any gift shop. The gifts given to Mr. Brown were very poor choices at the very least. Where the hell was the White House Chief of Protocol? That person is supposed to make sure such presidential gaffs do not occur.

Sexting, omg, when will this stuff end. These poor kids, they are in love, they don't know that their boyfriend/girlfriend will fall out of love in a minute.

martini! lol! I think a bomber jacket is cool! Its very Bush! Maybe not so thoughtful but very Bush so kinda fun... Now if Obama had given him a Blackberry that'd be very Obama!

Year after year there are stories of children and teens commiting suicide after suffering from bullying. But we still allow it to continue in our schools. If the punishment for bullying was more severe, maybe we could stop some of the harassment.

One of the most disturbing things about the suicide article is one of the comments on the linked story. It says it's 'her own damn fault' and then asks where her morals are. Anybody want to bet the commenter was one of the kids calling her a slut and throwing things at her?

LOL, haus, I looked it up. Bush gave him a leather bomber jacket, which the British press ridiculed that gift, too, since Brown nearly always wears a suit and tie - so Bush's gift was not much better!

Well, since over 2000 people a year (roughly) are granted some form of knighthood, yeah, I would expect them to have a stockpile of medals for those ceremonies.....which, frankly has nothing to do with this issue, but ok... Really, I think it is more the seeming THOUGHT put into the gift. Hmmmm...I will give you an item carved from the wood of the sister ship to the one whose wood provided the desk you use daily in the oval office. Very thoughtful and special. I could see if it was an extra special movie something or other that Brown had an affinity for, maybe...but since he isn't even a movie buff (by all the accounts I have read anyway), this seems rather thoughtLESS....

I bet Bush got him a GOOD gift! Like some beer from Texas or something! :)

On PBS the other night, they were showing Buckingham Palace's stock of medals to hand out with Knighthoods - they quite literally do have fancy stuff stockpiled. Obama didn't just grab a bunch of sale DVDs from a rack and hand them to Brown still in the bag - another British paper has a different take on their outrage: "Yet another example of the British press's apparent mission to feel snubbed by Obama on Gordon Brown's behalf and obsession with the passing of the special relationship with Bush (which was - at best - bittersweet)."

It would appear that the Brits put more thought into their gifts - something made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet is really NOT something that they would have "warehouses of", Steph. It is incredibly unique. And that a desk made from part of her companion ship sits in the oval office - WOW! A set of DVD movies that I could buy from Amazon....not so much....

Yeah, but face it - the Brits have warehouses of that stuff. What should Obama have given him, a paperweight made from a brick taken from Bunker Hill?

I read about that tennager this morning. So sad. I wish she had talked to someone. And I hope this makes parents talk to their kids about bullying and about not sending nude pics of themselves. I also heard about the Catholic church excommunicating everyone involved in that 9 year old's abortion. The abortion was done for medical reasons for crying out loud, not to mention the mental health of that poor, abused child.

Sorry, CarrieSue, we must've been posting at the same time! :oops:

Steph, the original article, from the Mail online says: "The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet. The unique present delighted Mr Obama because oak from the Gannet's sister ship, HMS Resolute, was carved to make a desk that has sat in the Oval Office in the White House since 1880. Mr Brown also handed over a framed commission for HMS Resolute and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert." In light of that, I would think the 25 DVD gift set is well, rather lame. IMO anyway.
