Barack Obama had to postpone his trip to Indonesia and Australia for a second time due to the Gulf oil spill crisis.

The president postponed the first time during the heated fight for the health care reform bill.  Many Indonesians have been eagerly anticipating Obama's return to the country where he spent four years of his childhood.  Obama's sister Maya is half-Indonesian.

I am a male Brit, married to a Kenyan Luo, the same tribe as Obama's father. We are both ashamed of his anti-British comments. We thought he was going to be a great President, but he has sorely let himself down. The fault with the oil spill lies squarely at the feet of the US companies and not with BP. Please God, don't bless America.
