Obama Ready To Talk ' Global New deal' with UK PM Brown

Brown woos Obama on global deal

Godron Brown hopes to forge a partnership with President Barack Obama in Washington this week, to call for a “global new deal” to lift the world out of recession.

As he prepares for his first White House visit since the president’s inauguration, the prime minister has hinted that he is ready to make further tax cuts to boost the UK economy.

Brown will meet Obama on Tuesday and address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.

Aides say he has both to demonstrate to a sceptical British public that he commands the respect of the president, and to persuade the American political establishment that global action is needed to rescue the US economy.

Brown is under pressure to persuade American political leaders to sign up to bold aims for the G20 summit of industrial and leading developing nations, which is to be held in London next month.

Many US politicians believe economic policy should put America first, and have shown little interest in concerted global action.

Brown will argue for a renewal of the transatlantic relationship, with the two powers working together to solve global economic problems.

The prime minister will borrow from the rhetoric of Franklin Roosevelt, who introduced the government-financed New Deal to tackle the US Depression of the 1930s. He will argue that his 21st century “global new deal” will also require public spending on a huge world-wide scale.

Writing in The Sunday Times today, Brown calls for “universal action to prevent the crisis spreading, to stimulate the global economy and to help reduce the severity and length of the global recession”.

His stress on continued economic “stimulation” will increase speculation about next month’s budget. No 10 sources said that, while no final decision had been taken about further tax cuts, the prime minister would do “whatever it took” to pull the UK out of recession.

Wild Thing's comment.........

New World Order Obama style! Only Obama could return our hard fought Sovereignty to Europe.

Is this going to be the precursor to bailout for Africa? Just wondering. Our Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves at these entangling alliances!

With the Dow already fallen from 14,000 to 7,000 and still dropping, the markets will respond to this today is my guess.

Yeah, this runs parallel with obamas feed the dark nation of Africa policy and eliminate world poverty, by bankrupting the United States. Thanks to this goon, he is mortgaging the country's future for the next 50 years.

At the rate he is going we will be in receivership withing 6 months.

Where do I get a bumper sticker like the header in this post? It should go over good in a town full of union aircraft workers, don't ya think?
So what will obammymammy and brownstain do when they run out of other people's money? Maybe they have found that tree that money grows on. It's bad enough that SecState klintoon has promised the murderers and bombers in the Gaza Strip 900 million of our dollars to "rebuild."
If there is any justice to be had out of this, it would be the outrage at spending of countries that do not deserve any help. And frankly, we have our own problems at home. Namely a congress that can't seem to pull it's own head out of it's own ass. I saw some of the things in the porkulus bill and wow, what will they think of next?
Starting to rant, better go.

Wait a minute......isn't "O" flip-flopping? Must have been in conversations with "Lurch" Kerry!!!

If my memory serves me correctly - and at my age, it may not be (LOL) - wasn't a condition of the recent bankruptcy package that products used in reconstruction HAD TO BE AMERICAN MADE?!?!?!?!

Now they want to globalize the United States???? Brown can go back to England and go to hell along with Rahm!!!

Global Deal is nothing short of these Idealistic out of touch politicians forcing the NEW WORLD ORDER down our throats. This science fiction film gets scarier by the day. This Osama...err...Obama creep must be stopped. Those that have nothing will lose their freedom. Those that have more will lose everything.
