The Real Reason?

Turns out that the bust of Churchill that Obama so disdainfully returned to the British was sculptured by Sir Jacob Epstein – a Jew. So perhaps there was more to the Putz-in-Chief's actions than sympathy with his Mau-Mau grandfather who was arrested and interrogated by the British.

Suggestion: whichever Republican candidate wins the Presidency should ask the Brits if he (or she) could please borrow the bust for the length of his term so that it could be restored to its place of honor in the Oval Office. Each successor President should then renew the request before taking office.
