Obama is black-balled in British royal wedding invite snub

Barack Obamas is said to be fairly incandscent with indignation at having been snubbed when invites to the upcoming wedding of Prince William were being doled out. Apparently, this is dubbed a semi-state occasion, and there is only so much room for folks at the ceremony. Add to the Obamas the complement of handlers/security who would add to the bodies in attendance, and it makes sense they wouldn't be invited. Not being dear personal friends of the British Royal family, I don't know why the Obamas should feel snubbed.

Were they just festering to bring more inappropriate gifts to Brits on that most important occasion?

Perhaps the Brits have somehow gotten the notion that the Obamas feel no particular closeness to them?

As an American, I don't feel snubbed, and I think it's a little bit funny.

The last thing an American President needs to do is go to a royal wedding in another country.

Karma's a b**ch, ain't it?

Since the POTUS is the personification of the old saying about "he's so vain, if he went to a wedding, he wouldn't be happy unless he was the bride," I find the lack of an invitation appropriate. And as you say, there's the question of security, especially since as I understand, some Islamists have already made threats to bomb or attack the wedding.

It's probably best he didn't receive an invitation. He'd have screwed up the wedding and the United States would forever be reminded of the poor judgement in allowing him to go.

As an American I don't feel snubbed, but I do feel saddened that our current President is such an unlikeable fellow that he and The First Baby Momma weren't considered worthy of an invitation to the royal wedding.

I think that just about any previous President would have been invited.

TOTWTYTR, I'm glad I wasn't drinking my Coke when I read your comment, because it would have been ALL over my laptop screen...
