This is why Michelle Obama is the fiercest First Lady, even the Queen of England wants to be her friend. No wonder the right can't stand her.
First Lady Michelle Obama, on a visit to London last week, got permission from Queen Elizabeth II for a guided tour of the palace with her daughters, Sasha and Malia.This is because the Queen recognized quickly that the Obamas are genuine people...more than politicians. Of course the Obamas play the political games, they have to in order to survive. But their game playing faces are paper thin. Underneath are genuine people who truly care and want to make a positive difference in the world.
They were shown around the queen's official residence and its gardens and the queen herself greeted them afterward, according to a royal source who spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was private.
In April, during a visit to Britain with her husband, Michele Obama made a warm impression on the queen _ so much so that the monarch strayed from protocol and briefly wrapped her arm around the first lady in a rare public show of affection.
Isn't it refreshing to have a President and First Lady that we can be proud of? A President and First Lady that other world leaders genuinely like and admire instead of just fear? Doesn't this give you hope that the relationships that the Obamas are able to forge will mean an opening of dialogue, a renewed respect for our country? Isn't it wonderful that we no longer have a POTUS and FLOTUS that embody the "ugly American" stereotype?
Now wait for the rabid right to find something wrong with the Queen of England taking a liking to Michelle Obama in 5, 4, 3...
