Over the weekend, a statue of Reagan was unveiled in London, as part of the celebration of his centennial.
That night, a dinner was held in honor of Reagan.  It capped a day of events that celebrated the life and extraordinary achievements of the 40th President of the United States.  Yet, missing from the dinner – clearly the biggest event of the day – was United States Ambassador Louis Susman.  While he did host a VIP breakfast that morning, Susman was absent from the grandest event, where speeches were given and the memory of Reagan was put forth – reminding everyone of his impact, and his legacy.
From all reports, Susman was not sick, stricken with illness or involved in a really intense game of Farmville.  He simply didn’t show up, as the representative of the United States, to an event honoring one of the greatest presidents in US history.
Brutally Honest thinks this was a deliberate snub on the administration's part, and he may be right. Given how inept and lacking in class the WH protocol people have shown themselves to be time and again, and considering Obama's efforts to wear the mantle of Reagan, I wonder if they knew it was happening?
