Was Barack Obama really too tired to see Gordon Brown last week?

As Gordon Brown looks back on his visit to the US and the rather low-key entrance afforded to him by the new US government the US authorities are now suggesting that Barack Obama was "too tired" to welcome Gordon Brown "properly". While this may go some way towards diffusing the suggestion that he had been sidelined by the US administration there is no getting away from the fact that his visit to the US was less than spectacular.

There is no doubt that Barack Obama has been working around the clock since coming to office with a number of high-profile rescue packages already signed off and more apparently in the background. He has also been very busy reorganising his presidential staff and putting in place his key advisers, which include Hillary Clinton, as the US government attempts to instil some confidence back into the country.

While Gordon Brown attempted to team up with Barack Obama as one of the champions of the world there is no doubt that the US authorities are putting the US economy first and the worldwide economy second. In reality if the US economy does recover this will inevitably drag the worldwide economy out of the current recession and back into expansion mode.
