President Bush Winks At The Queen

May 9, 2007

HE’S JUST A GOOD OLE’ BOY, NEVER MEANIN’ NO HARM

During a ceremony on the south lawn of the White House welcoming the Queen of England, Bush made this little slip, “You’ve dined with 10 U.S. presidents. You helped our nation celebrate its bicentennial in 17….in 1976.”

Then, as only a fool could do, Bush turned to Queen Elizabeth and winked, a no-no when it comes to regal protocol, and as the laughter died down, said, “She gave me a look that only a mother could give a child.” Ouch!

Bush is no stranger when it comes to awkward interactions with the heads of state from various nations. You may remember that German Chancellor Angela Merkel was not amused when he grabbed her from behind and gave her a quick massage before rushing off at a recent G-8 Conference.
