    President and First Lady Obama gave Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II a video iPod with inscription, songs uploaded and accessories, plus a rare musical songbook signed by Richard Rodgers.

    Uploaded onto the iPod:

    * Photos from the Queen's 2007 White House State Visit
    * Photos from the Queen's 2007 Jamestown, Va., Visit
    * Photos from the Queen's 2007 Richmond, Va., Visit
    * Video from the Queen's 1957 Jamestown Visit
    * Video from the Queen's 2007 Jamestown Visit
    * Video from the Queen's 2007 Richmond Visit
    * Photos from President Obama's Inauguration
    * Audio of then-state senator Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and
    * Audio of President Obama 2009 Inauguration Address

    Britain's Press Association reports that the Royal couple gave the Obamas "a silver-framed, signed photograph of themselves."

    I can see the Richard Rodgers songbook. I can see the photos from the Queen's previous visits.

    But photos and audios of BO speeches?

    Who is picking out these gifts?

    Wouldn't it have made more sense to give her a Kindle II? Or the latest iphone?

    I think an O-O-O-bama chia pet would have been more appropriate.

    But.... But...

    The Obama's supposed to represent CHANGE... as in -- NO such idiotic gaffes! He's supposed to be BETTER, SLICKER, MORE REFINED, MORE INTELLIGENT. He's supposed to represent us better. Supposed to be an improvement. All that rot.

    If YOU really believe in holding a POTUS accountable, you shouldn't be MUM about this kind of stupid shit nor should you be a infantile apologist for it!

    "Mom, the other kids do it too" is really getting old, where mindless partisan defenders of The Obama are concerned.
