I was watching some news outlet last night, maybe CNN I dont remember it was late. According to them Michelle gave The Queen the iPod. Anyways who cares it's the thought that counts. I cant believe how many of you on here think it's tacky. Like I said before she is the Queen~ What do you get her?! As for the picture argument I personally think it a dumb idea. I am sure she gets pics all the time of people. I wish someone would ask The Queen her thoughts on this.

A few things to add my .02 to this discussion.

1) I know the MSM has 'reported' what's on the iPod. But what else could be on there? iPods are getting larger every month. They can hold ALOT of data.

2) Everything has symbolism. What could the iPod represent, or stand for? What would other gifts have meant?

3) I mostly agree with DeLarge ... "This is irrelevant...."

It's a great way to distract us from the more important real issues. Unfortunately most of America is focused on this stupid useless gift (and what Mrs. O wore the other day)

Please, someone explain this one to me... Or are you all just looking for something to get mad about?


Yes. From the beginning of time.

If the Queen were to be caught privately on a cell phone camera in her inner circle group of friends with no press around, telling all of them that she really liked the gift, these same group of mind-numb robots would be on the airwaves, and in these forums, saying that the queen has gone senile.

Nothing can stop the propagandizing hate machine. The best thing we can do is set back, take notes, and enjoy the show.
Watching them complain is like watching the movie Jaws. Every time you watch it, you catch something new that you missed before.

Fantasize much. Leave the thread if you don't like it. Perhaps you can file through the endless number of Bush Bashing threads so that you can remember the good old days. Every president is a puppet. There is no difference and they will always be criticized by the opposition.

Well, you just sit back and watch the show while Obama and his handlers destroy this nation bit by bit. I never thought I would see a Marxist in the White House.

Oh BTW. Don't forget this.

Don't Touch: Michelle Obama Abandons Protocol With the Queen It has been considered a breach of protocol to touch the Queen.


She is an idiot just like her husband.

An ipod - how special!!!!
An ipod with his speeches on it - how narcissistic!!!!!

Next time she'll probably get an ebay gift certificate for $50 from him if our government can afford it.

It's the Queen whose a narcist, handing out pictures of herself to everyone she meets is proof enough.

It was a very thoughtful gift; just not very well thought through. The Queen (or any important person) can not be running around with a 'device' close to her person and in her private quarters; given by friend or foe of unknown intention. The specifics are moot. As anything could have been placed within the device-a poison, a listening device, an explosive device, a transmitter.

It's not a matter of 'do I trust you'. It is a civility of common sense.

The thought was very nice, and maybe the GB card with the information would have been in more appropriate taste-along with another obvious issue free gift, like.... hmmm an 8 ft tall carved glass statue of....

Oh I don't know. Not himself!

I do not believe he was being rude. I believe he was sharing photos or speeches or whatever knowing the priceless nature of their consolodation.

I believe he was trying to be thoughtful.


Who's the joker who let him lose face by giving a gift that in no way, shape, or form could have been accepted?

That's the question. Fire that guy.

Two points I want to make, you really think their administrations don't talke to each other? I am sure the COS here and the British equivilant are discussing it and find it appropriate.

The other is, the gifts you see exchanged are not not the only ones. They are for the pictures and the public eye. There is probably a tractor trailer of goodies sitting behind the palace.

All of these people probably take these gifts and toss them on the massive pile of other gifts they receive.

I heard on a show once that Bill Clinton had received so many times that he never ever wore the same one twice. And started re gifting them.

Only if he added some spinning rims with the iPod, then it would be an outstanding gift.

Just saying.

I'll just wait for you to actually try to make a point first before I prove you wrong. I know you are a die hard Obama fan so this might take a while.

BTW It's not my thread.

So is this yet another Class less Gift from our President? First Dvds and now an Ipod. Hopfully it is at least an Ipod Touch! As the artical states the Queen allready has an Ipod. What is next a gift certificate for Itunes? I honestly think this man has no class what so ever, he could have put a little thought in to a gift to be given to a queen.

Hopefully his personal giving doesn't stop there but extends well into the regions of Africa and Asia where clean water is seen as a luxury.



The Problem: 1.1 billion people still don't have access to clean drinking water.

Dirty, diseased water leads to a cycle of poverty, sickness and inability to develop.

The Solution: You get involved and help dig wells, build small dams, put up water tanks and provide clean, safe water for thousands.

Why Give Water?
What if the gift you make today could do more than simply save lives…what if it could change lives? Forever.

Clean water saves lives, but is also changes them. Girls return to school. Women begin small businesses. Men are no longer too sick to work. Fields are watered and food supply becomes more reliable. Health returns and children grow up to be productive members of their community. The cycle of poverty is broken. Lives change.

"When water comes…everything changes." That's what our driver told us as we drove from town to town in Kenya. And we see the change every time a new well brings clean water.

Clean water isn't an end…it's a means.

I agree more thought should have gone into the gift but it is very American.

Apart from the fact that the iPod was designed by a Brit by the name of Jonathan Paul Ive CBE - so an Anglo-Amercan gift possibly makes it more appropriate??

Come on now relax.

I wouldn't mind if somebody gave me an ipod as a gift!

The queen may be royalty, but it does not mean she is better than me or you, that she deserves a better gift than you or me, she's human, and I'm sure she enjoyed the gift just like anyone else would.

Sometimes "celebs" like to be treated human for a change, and not like some god.

Unfortunately for ol' George, the child she had in mind was Prince Edward

Some people will grasp and absolutely anything to bash the Obama's.

The queen liked it and even embraced Michelle Obama (which is a first), so I say they did a good job.

And why is this even on ATS?

Get over it people.
