Aussie Foreign Minister chides Obama

From Radio Australia:
... Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has criticised US president Barack Obama for a speech in Brisbane last weekend in which he claimed climate change threatened the Great Barrier Reef.

... Ms Bishop is not the only Coalition politician to voice criticism of Mr Obama, with frontbenchers Joe Hockey[Treasurer] and Jamie Briggs [Infr & Reg Dev] making comments in the wake of the Brisbane speech.

Does the US have any friends and allies that Obama has not personally insulted? If so it must be a short list.
As chief executive Obama has been a diplomatic disaster, comparable to no other President in memory. That this embarrassing record does largely unnoted in the liberal media, does not mean it doesn't exist.

That must be the secret to his "success" - he can depend on the media to either cover up or put a gloss on whatever he says or does.

He's likely now depending on it to get him through his unilateral actions on immigration.
