    Default Obama thanks Cowen for US access to Shannon

    RTÉ News: Obama thanks Cowen for US access to Shannon

    CHANGE my behind. Obama sounds different, but if you concentrate on the actions and not the words... he is continuing ALL of the policies and wars (and them some) that Bush/Blair promoted.

    Pathetic!

    When are people going to wake up?

    Did ye see the cut of Cowen beside fine fit Obama. What did we do to deserve this, at least Bert could bluff his way. Take him home soon for God's sake.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    So you expected him to abandon Bush's two wars on his first day in office? Yup, that would have worked.

    Deadlines my boy, deadlines.

    The irony of it is that Michelle Obama was speaking at an obesity conference today - and when she gets back to the White House Cowen will be waiting.

    Stop cribbing. It is great to have access to the most important man in the world and Keep Ireland in the world media for good reasons.

    It is right that we work with America and try to get as many economic ties as possible. Great too to see a parade in Beijing.

    Well at least he expressed discomfort. Bertie would have just grinned and given a "what's the big deal" look.

    This really is an affront to Irish people (versus their politicians --a class onto themselves). Or are there people here who actually support the "War on Terror", believe Bin Laden is still at large, and in other myths and hype like "weapons of mass destruction".

    No point in annoying the most powerful country in the world (with hugh historical ties). Let them land here as long as they want (there isn't much else going on in Shannon)

    When Obama is doing up his list of tax havens from an American tax legislation, this low tax country taxing many American companies is better off on their good side.

    American troops should be down to 50,000 this coming August, assuming Iraq forms a stable governmnet over the next month.

    In Afghanistan & Pakistan, Obama is doing exactly what he said he would do in is campaign. He has turned the screws on Al Qaeda, and gained far more successes than Bush in that region.

    Thinking of the subjugation of women and genocide that would take place under the Taliban, he has little choice but to continue.

    Once upon a time there were stories of what great things America were going to do in Vietnam, strange, no American wants to hear Vietnam mentioned today
