Did Michelle hug the Queen? The real truth behind the story.

If we are going to spread gossip, let's at least get it right. Please see the attached web links to see what really happened between Michele Obama and the Queen. Michele is the only one that the Queen has broken protocol and hugged in public. If we are going to tell the story we need to get all the facts, especially when we are putting the person we are telling the story about down. http://www.wfaa.com/sharedcontent/dws/wfaa/latestnews/stories/wfaa090402_lj_queen.965a94bc.html http://www.merryroyals.com/2009/04/02/video-queen-elizabeth-michelle-obama-hug/

"ONE NATION or GOD"?????? Make up your mind America!!!

Jennifer, You have a nice Easter.

God Bless

Be Blessed. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (Love), I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vauneth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seekth not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is (Love) charity.

Well, I just seen a video that said that the First Lady did not break the protocol that the Queen herself said it was just a hug of Affection.

Hi Jacval,

The Queen herself initiated the hug. I don't know why it is so hard for people to believe that the Queen is human and she has emotions just like everybody else. I am so glad you viewed the video for yourself. Keep up the research, that's a good thing to do, because then you won't get caught up in the gossip and the mud slinging.

Did the Saudi King initiat the BOW?

"ONE NATION or GOD"?????? Make up your mind America!!!

Hi Jennifer, No the Saudi did not initiate the bow, but I don't see anything wrong with it. The President was clearly showing an acknowledgement of respect which to me is perfectly OK.

People are going to draw their own conclusions anyway, especially when they don't like the President. If he hadn't bowed, some other fault would have been picked out, so I am not going to get into a debate on this. Everyone has their own opinions.

Hi Jennifer, one other thing, this question was on Michelle Obama, not the President.

Who's putting her down?  She just broke protocol, as you or I might have done.

As for what the Queen said...she was just being polite.  A little story...

Many years ago an American was sitting at the dinner table with the Queen. He picked up one of the little bowls [used to wash your fingers] filled with water and took a sip...a big no no.  What did the Queen do?  She picked up her finger bowl and took a sip...it's called being polite.
