My take on politics locally, nationally and internationally

A bit of fun for a Friday


Have a look at this raw footage of President Obama and President Medvedev enjoying a burger together whilst Medvedev was in the US for talks.

Obama is very at ease unlike Medvedev. Sure, he’s in a foreign country but he hasn’t had to hone the same skills to win elections in a democracy unlike Obama.

  1. Astonished by how close they (the Secret Service) allow the public to get to the Presidents. Can you imagine the Metropolitan Police allowing DC and a World Leader to pop into a burger joint in London?

  2. I suspect the burger joint was carefully chosen and everyone in the place was checked for weapons prior to Obama's arrival. I wouldn't be surprised if the street was cordoned off as well before he turned up so the Secret Service could 'kettle' everyone in and control the situation. I don't think the Secret Service would allow Obama to visit a burger place with DC as they probably don't trust the Met to keep him safe.
