Politics is unkind: Obama's UK ambassador takes a hit

Story 1:  Obama's UK Ambassador Skips Dinner in Honor of Reagan Statue  "This Obama crew just doesn't do etiquette" is the author's comment.

Ambassador Susman.
Unlike President Obama,
he has an image of Churchill in his office.
Story 2:  In the same London Evening Standard article mentioned above:        "Mr Susman had been at the unveiling of a statue of Reagan ... earlier in the day, and had hosted a generous breakfast for the entire VIP visiting party and the military band, so he had certainly not snubbed the grand centenary (of Reagan's birth) events. According to the US embassy spokesman: "Ambassador Susman was pleased to be invited to the dinner but was unable to attend."
