Michelle Obama charms queen away from protocol
Associated Press ^ | 4/2/2009 | JENNIFER QUINN,

LONDON – Michelle Obama's meeting with Queen Elizabeth II began with a handshake and ended in a hug.

The first lady arrived Wednesday with President Barack Obama. After separate meetings on the eve of the G-20 summit, the couple attended an evening reception for world leaders hosted by the queen.

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.

I think Mrs. BO should have fist bumped the Queen. Now THAT would have been a story.

REALLY??? After Michele let her go, she said something to the Queen and the Queen wasn’t amused. Watch the whole YOUTUBE that Gatewaypundit has.

they can report what they like but the fact remains that many British media outlets have said that michelle obama and her husband did not show decorum at all and that they seemed to have not done their homework on meeting heads of state.

They have showed themselves again as having no class .

Hey AP if any of you are reading this then remember some of us have family in the UK and some of us are form there so spin this visit however you want and fool the sheep but you are not fooling me at all

I believe the Queen was drawn to put her arms around that ass as one might be drawn to put arms around the giant redwood tree-to get some sense of the awesome dimensions of the thing.

Nah. Chest Bump, followed by repeated fist pumps and a "Woof Woof Woof!".

"Yo Q! Where's Charlie at?"

(hangs head in shame) If I saw this on the news, I'd not be surprised.

Here comes the media spin, full of the usual adulation and worship...

The sad thing is that millions of sheeple will eat this right up.

Not to be too gross, but if Michelle had dry-humped the Queen, the Drive-bys would’ve also said Michelle “charmed her” to allow it.

Notable journalist and political oracle Mark Shields sez ‘there’s absolutely, positively NO bias in favor of Obama in the media. No sir.’

I cannot believe the Queen was not aware of rumors it was Michelle who had insisted the White House bust of Churchill be returned to the UK.

So I think the chances Her Majesty was "charmed" by Michelle are, er, exaggerated.

I agree a barf alert is needed. We have “rules and protocol” here, although I could tell by the title it was warranted even without the formal barf alert...

I’ve got a lot more important concerns than this non-issue. Frankly, if her husband conducted himself as well, we’d be better off.

It’s stunning that the media was able to force the queen to break protocol and put her arm around Michelle. I wonder how they did it.

"Michelle Obama charms queen away from protocol "

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Talk about spin! Michelle blows the protocol and it turns into "charming" the Queen away from protocol. Pathetic.

Personally, I believe there are two reasons why this happened.

1) The Queen was recognizing a fellow “family pants wearer”, since she is one.

2) The Queen was giving a signal that she approves what O is doing to this country.

I'm certain he charmed them silly with his perpetual "it's all about me!" shtick. No respect or sense of honor or protocol in anything he or Shelly does. Just the embarrassing show of low brow narcissism, obama style.

The London media has a very different report on this story.

Omarosa put her arm around the queen first and the queen being the lady she is, simply responded.

Somehow I prefer the London papers to the AP

*Someone* needs to tell the Obamas what to expect and how to act when they meet VIPs.

Sheesh. This is getting so old. How can our own president and her husband ;-) be so clueless?

From what I saw of the video, I thought Mrs. Obama looked pushy, and I’m a touchy-feely person myself.

came to the same conclusion, she was aggressive, showed no class and seemed like a school girl getting out of school early

If there's any bowing down going on it should be done at the alter of Roscoe Karns for his creations. See below:

And I’d add that if anyone has paid any attention to the dysfunctional Windsor family, they’d know that the Obambis are right up their alley. They LOVE the libs. Only Prince Philip, that zero IQ guy, at least isn’t afraid to say what he thinks. Wish I was fly on wall after the dissing he took from M’chelle.

All Obama had to say about that was, “I won”.
