Obama Ambassador to UK Skips Event at US Embassy Honoring Ronald Reagan

The ceremony honoring Ronald Reagan was held outside in front of the US Embassy in London.

Sadly, the Obama ambassador to the United Kingdom skipped the event.
He had better things to do.
The Evening Standard reported:

Last night’s Guildhall dinner in honour of Ronald Reagan’s centenary was a truly glittering and warm occasion.

The British roasted lamb and the sunny Californian chardonnay evoked the close Anglo-US relationship of Reagan and Thatcher as much as the fine speeches by Condi Rice and William Hague.

But guests were left asking, where on earth was the American ambassador to London, Louis B Susman?

“Our ambassador should be here,” said Lynn de Rothschild, the American entrepreneur who is married to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and was one of Hillary Clinton’s key fundraisers in 2008 as well as a supporter of several Republican presidential candidates. “This was an historic dinner to mark Reagan’s centenary and to celebrate him as the man who ended the Cold War. What could not be more important?

“Why is our ambassador not here on Independence Day? No excuse. How is it that America is not represented in this room by our ambassador? It is appalling that no representative of our government is in this room. This has the feel of petty partisanship.”

Ambassador Susman is, of course, a long-standing Democrat fundraiser, nicknamed the vaccuum cleaner for his skill at sucking donations out of the wealthy. And his efforts to fill Obama’s campaign pockets was said by many to be his main qualification to come to London.

    He is probably a Reagan hating socialist… Just like his boss

    Most ambassadors have few skills being either politically powerful, in which case they at least have direct access to the president. On the other hand they are professionals whose only talents are navigating State’s bureacracy and brown nosing their superiors. They have no managerial skills, and their judgement can be demonstrated by the treaties they negiotiate.

    This one is just your typical ignorant Leftist, no better or worse than most of Obama’s losers. Remember Hunstman was an Obama ambassador.

  • Gothguy

    Disgraceful…just plain disgraceful.

  • davidt

    Remember when Obama flew in to Berlin to honor Ronald Reagan on the anniversary of the Berlin wall being torn down and then Obama read a rousing speech in which he didn’t mention himself , not even once ?

    Only one question needs to be asked. How is Obama getting away with this?

    #1. Dumb or America hating Americans that voted for him.

    #2. The Dems own the government media. Someone has to be in charge. It’s MSM because
    they own the Silence. Kick the Repubs in Congress and make them squeak.

  • tarpon

    “This was an historic dinner to mark Reagan’s centenary and to celebrate him as the man who ended the Cold War.
    Why would a marxist celebrate the man who ended the Cold War ?
    Do you know who was defeated when the cold war ended ? Do you know what was defeated when the cold war ended ?

  • valerie

    I am sure the Brits had a lovely time planning the celebration of an American President who left the world a better place. Those that know or care about the difference between the American political parties may have also enjoyed giving the current ambassador the choice to either celebrate a Republican, or look provincial. Certainly the reporter at the Evening Standard is having fun.

  • Ella

    Our next Republican president needs to run this guy off first thing he or she does in office in January 2013. In fact, run all of these libtards off.

  • USMC Thomas

    Demoncrat’s have neither class nor honor.

    Another self loathing Jewish “investment” banker, who supported Obama with CA$HI$H.
    American Jews are not friends of Israel.


    What a bunch of right-wing filth on this site. Reagan was senile before he took the oath the first time and he declined rapidly thereafter. This even was not sanctioned by the US government, why on earth would the ambassador bother with it? It was put on by a bunch of right-wing morons to further prop up the fairy-tale legacy of a particularly horrid president.
