Obama Snubs Kids Event In Oslo, Cardboard Cutout Put In His Place… Can we trade?

cardboard Obama snubs kids PLEASE, Oslo.  Can we trade?  You can have Obama if we can have the cutout.  PLEASE!!!

Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama skipped a "Save the Children" benefit concert in Oslo, Norway, Thursday, and a cardboard cutout of the American president was placed on stage in his absence.

In Oslo to receive an award that most people believe he didn’t deserve, Obama claimed, "I still have a lot of work to do back in Washington, D.C., before the year is done."

According to the Associated Press, Obama also skipped lunch with the King of Norway.

Maybe he didn’t want to create another international incident bowing before royalty (larger version of picture below the fold, h/t Allahpundit):

Obama had quite a whirlwind day Thursday – he signed the Nobel guest book, huddled with Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, met with King Harald V and Queen Sonja, and delivered an acceptance speech after he was formally presented with the prize. He also joined the king and queen at an evening banquet.

But he skipped several other activities, including lunch with the king, a news conference at Oslo’s Grand Hotel, CNN’s traditional interview with the prize winner and a "Save the Children" benefit concert, where organizers replaced him with an Obama cardboard cutout.
