STILL on US politics, who could forget the only good part of the 1988 presidential election when the Democratic vice-presidential candidate, Senator Lloyd Bentsen, slapped down wee Dan Quayle for trying to compare himself with JFK.
Now it looks like David Cameron’s trying to do the same with Obama. This from Conservative Home: “David Cameron: Barack Obama is the first of a new generation of leaders who will deliver change”.
Oh dearie me. You are many things, Dave, but you’re no Barack Obama (thank godness).
