Really President Obama, an Ipod for the Queen?
Is that really the best you can do President Obama. An Ipod. For the Queen? I’d really like to know who is in charge of gifts for foreign leaders, because they really suck. Dvd’s for the Prime Minister, now an Ipod for the Queen.
President Obama has given the Queen an Ipod during their private meeting at Buckingham Palace. It contains footage of her state visit to the US in May 2007. The Queen has given the president a silver framed photograph of herself and her husband. The official picture is what she gives all visiting dignitaries.
I’m really pretty astounded at this. You have the resources at your disposal to get the Queen nearly anything in the world, and you choose an Ipod? I’m all for saving money, but maybe if we start trimming the 3.6 trillion dollar budget we can find some room to spend more than $200 on the Queen. Or at least find something that is one of a kind. Heck, it doesn’t even have to one of a kind, just not a mp3 player that is one of a billion.
A friend said this regarding Mr. Obama the other day:
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like watching bad reality TV . . . like, Who Wants to Be the President?
And every week I wonder, when is this guy going to get voted off?
