Can you please make clear what the alleged issue is?

was over two copies of the same bust. Same artist did both.
The White House already had one, and Britain loaned a second one to the Bush White House.
The second one was returned to its owners -- with the original one staying in the White House.
The confusion was that no one realized that there were TWO copies of the same bust at the White House until Krauthammer's opinion piece.
Now that it's been straightened out, perhaps Mitt Romney -- who's become quite talented at apologizing on the world stage in the past week -- should apologize to the White House for not realizing they still have a bust of Churchill and apologize to the British people for insulting Churchill in his book.

I think I'm going to
cally dervish from now on. You are ALWAYS spinning so hard to the left you resemble a whirling dervish. Everything you post must be taken with a grain...or half a ton...of salt because it is so distorted and hyperbolized.

By the way... this is HUGE!
Now that the Obama campaign is gaining traction against Romney, we MUST make a big deal out of bullsh*t like this.
And there is NO ONE better to load on the bullsh*t than my friend Whskey Tango Foxtrot. A true American sh*t head!

Simply straightening out...
the right wing spin, cruzo.
Romney said he'd return the SECOND bust to the White House -- but do you really think the British people would allow that?
I mean, Romney insulted their Olympics while visiting their country. And his book not only insulted their business abilities -- but said that the English Channel -- rather than Churchill, the RAF and the will of the British people -- was what kept Hitler from taking the UK.
He doesn't deserve to be entrusted with EITHER bust of Churchill!

Pop quiz! Quick, cruiser: What's a dervish?

Sufi Muslim who uses body motions...principally whirling...to enter into a trance-like state. The costume includes a weighted "whirling skirt" and a tall, fez-like hat.
Did you know that? I doubt it.

Arrogant, imperious Grateful Dud
was trying to trip me up. She seems to have some sort of obsessive need to prove to herself that she's smarter than me.
She doesn't know that I've extensively studied the Middle East and Islam. I'm very much aware of Sufism...and whirling dervishes.
Too bad, dearie...you lose.

So, cruzo, our Oakland University grad...
has discovered Wikipedia and looked up a word/phrase he's been using since grade school for the first time!
We're so proud of our resident troll!
But he's failed to address any of the facts I've pointed out making the whole bust issue a non-troversy.
Nor has he addressed the fact that it's highly unlikely the British people would ever entrust Romney with a bust of Churchill considering Romney's insult of Churchill in his book.
Care to address those points cruzo -- or do you want to keep twirling?

and here we have a trolling dervish. l get a kick when he talks down to posters explaining things he thinks we dont understand like Sufism... I've gone to a concert of Sufi music. the sect is also connected to kundalini yoga, which was founded by yoga
master who was also a Sufi.

I wonder what size fez cruzo wears...
His brain would suggest a size 5 or smaller. His ego would require a 13.
But I'm sure he'll tell us his legs look great under his twirling skirt!

correction.. that yoga master was a sikh not a sufi, but
they dress similarly and I do know what is meant by a
whirling dervish.. sorry for going off topic.
