So let me get this straight: The British Prime Minister presents Obama with a carved penholder from an anti-slave ship, the commissioning paper from a rescued vessel and the first edition biography of Winston Churchill in the spirit of the strong friendship between our two nations and to represent the freedom, commitment and the leadership that has paved the way for the liberty of millions of world citizens over two world wars and other conflicts. In turn, Obama gives the British PM 25 movie DVDs. So it's OK to insult our strongest ally with a gift any schmo could have picked up at Blockbuster or Amazon.com, yet Obama hosts opulent dinners where the star of the show is $100 per serving Wagyu beef. Who's advising Obama on foreign policy? Noam Chomsky?
