As everyone know that G20 summit is held in London, and all media, people and the world are focusing on the agenda of this G20. The unthinkable has happened and everyone is talking about it….so what is the fuzz that happened?....
It wasn’t President Barack Obama talking to Prime Minister Gordon Brown about how to bail out the world’s economies. Not the nuclear discussions with those tricky Russians either. Nor even what the Axis of Evil might get up to in London.
It was just a simple touch = hug to the Queen…..
Michelle Obama's meeting with Queen Elizabeth II began with a handshake and ended in a hug that had the British press buzzing…..
So is it for wrong to hug the Queen? Common, be reasonable…Mrs. Obama was being friendly and nice to her….
Maybe couples of incidents that get media talking and among them are:
- Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating was dubbed the "Lizard of Oz" by British tabloids when, in 1992, he was photographed with his arm resting on the queen’s back. Simply not done, old chap.
- President George W. Bush got a withering look in 2007 when he gave her a cheeky wink. He’s lucky she didn’t poke him in the eye.
Mrs. Obama clearly made an impression with the 82-year-old monarch — so much that the smiling queen strayed slightly from protocol and briefly wrapped her arm around the first lady in a rare public show of affection….
So…..you be the judge....
