Obama in England to meet queen and prime minister

London (CNN) - After a rock star reception in Ireland, President Barack Obama was in England Tuesday to meet with Britain's royal family and huddle with top politicians.

British Prime Minister David Cameron talked up the two countries' closeness the night before the Obama visit officially began, calling the relationship "essential" and saying there was an "incredible alignment of views" between 10 Downing Street and the White House.

    I wonder if President Obama told them, "You are either for us, or you are agin' us?" Only crazy people miss 'Cowboy Diplomacy.'

    Two countries so far, and our president has not had a shoe thrown at him yet.

    Isn't it weird that Obama isn't dissing our country on this world tour? Wonder if Michelle is proud of her country yet? Shameful.

    Prince Charles is the Anti-Christ. I'm not thrilled of the American President being in cahoots with him.

    Prince Charles has been a busy little diplomat of late. Not his line of work. Something is up with the financial system, and no one is saying anything publicly. Maybe it is just normal stuff that happens prior to a G-8 meeting. Somehow it feels different this time because of where people have turned up and with whom they were seeing.
