British attack Obama as 'Anglophobic'? WTF?

So.
President Obama called the company that is responsible for the greatest environmental disaster in HISTORY British Petroleum.
Some politicians in England have been offended.  They are saying it is OBAMA'S FAULT that the share price of BP stock is down in the basement.

WTF, BRITS?
GO.READ


When I read this article in the London (?) Daily Mail, I was struck by the comments.  Many of them absolutely dislike our President.  I suspect Britain has it's own Tea Party problems...

Oh...well now...I think I get it NOW.  It seems that while visiting there, President Obama hugged their biggest queen.  Nanner nanner neener no no!  My guess is they still have their panties in a twist over THAT.
  
Canadian oil companies no longer need to have relief-well plans?

OK you ENGLISH DINKS.  What's up with THIS?

British Petroleum has gone under the name BP for many years, since it is now a joint Anglo-American company. Obama was giving the impression that those evil Brits had dumped a load of oil on American shores. No mention of the fact that the company is half American. So it was a reminder of the juvenile anglophobia which seems to have guided Mr Obama during his lame adventures in foreign policy. Do you consider it honorable to publicly blame the other party entirely for something that is half your own responsibility? Is that normal in the USA?

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
