WELCOMING BACK THE PRODIGAL:

What's So Special?: Can this relationship be saved? (Fred Barnes, May 24, 2010, Weekly Standard)


Less than an hour after David Cameron became British prime minister last week, he got a congratulatory phone call from President Obama. That was merely a courtesy. What the president said was not. “As I told the prime minister,” the president said in a statement later, “the United States has no closer friend and ally than the United Kingdom, and I reiterated my deep and personal commitment to the special relationship between our two countries, a bond that has endured for generations and across party lines.”

Given Obama’s role in tearing down the once formidable partnership between the United States and the United Kingdom, his words may represent a significant shift in his foreign policy.


It's a good idea for the more fatherly William Hague to handle the relationship than the younger brotherly Cameron. Hold out the promise of winning back Daddy's love and the UR will do anything you ask.
