Obama Gives Queen Elizabeth II an iPod
I found an interesting article regarding a certain transaction between our president and the first lady today. It turns out that Obama went to go visit the fine Queen, and he gave her an iPod as a gift! Now, I don't know about the Queen, but I'd be excited to receive such a gift. However, there have been naysayers all over the world shocked by such a display. Many of them have said things like, "What a trashy gift for a president to give the Queen of England," or "Doesn't the president have better ettiquette to offer a present that a kid would want?" Now, I'm not political myself, and I prefer to be non-biased here on our new president, but I'm gonna have to defend him here.
What most people didn't know about this transaction was the fact that the Queen asked for this present! So good call, Obama - and way to deliver on a Queen's wishlist. Now if he could just cover the wishlist of the American people, then he'll go down in history as one of the greatest presidents.
