MICHELLE OBAMA IS A BIG HIT IN BRITAIN

Deservedly so. She's a winner in numerous ways.

Yes, she certainly is. She put her hand on the Queen's back- which seems to be a "no no" to most folks. Bush was called the worst possible names and he didn't touch her-he winked at her-the scoundrel Also believe some Prime Minister was referred to with evil epithets ts for doing exactly what Michelle did. Guess there is something to be said for His Barrackship- LOL Linda

That whole touching thing is a bizarre formality. Besides, the Queen touched her first and Michelle responded in kind. It must have felt pretty good to have someone break those barriers.

If I ever see the Queen, I'm touching her too. I'll send postcards from the brig.

Don't start with me, Andy, . Royal etiquette or lack thereof is common knowledge. You mean you didn't know these things? LOL Linda

I know those things, it wasn't a problem, and I know which network you're always watching, Linda.

She's big anywhere, but her girdle looked like it was choking her.

Felix, I can see why a woman who could kick you @ss both mentally and physically would intimidate you.

I just can't do it. I can't get past her saying she was never proud of her country before Obama became Democrat candidate for President. She's brilliant, beautiful, has a master's degree. All from the greatest of schools in the greatest of countries. In her lifetime there has been so much improvement, so much change, so much healing and repair. Yet she says this is a mean country.

Sure there is some meanness to be found if you look for it, in any race or culture on the planet. We've all been exposed to meanness, in our own areas, in our travels. But this is one of the best countries on this planet. No country has given as much as this one in times of need, any time, anywhere on this planet. And it has given from the beginning of its existence. There's a lot to be proud of in the United States, more than just THIS president, THIS man, THIS woman.

The United States is about all our stories together.

Maybe she needed to get away from some of those people she was hanging around, because there is great friendship and love out here. That still hasn't happened in some countries. Such tremendous improvement in relationships in such a short time. I'm proud of the U.S.

And I think that Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan, Rosalyn Carter, Betty Ford, Pat Nixon, Lady Byrd Johnson, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Mamie Eisenhower (the First Ladies of my lifetime) were very much class acts, too. And they never said they weren't proud of their country.

Michelle Obama said what she believed at the time. Who knows? Maybe she'll change her mind as the country changes. BTW, I don't think those other first ladies ever really spoke their own minds, at least while their husbands were in office. Actually, she has toned it down too, darn it.

I agree - and I don't want her to tone it down, either. It's good to have a strong, self-assured woman speaking intelligently and wisely.

I just don't want her to diss the country that chose her husband. If I weren't proud of my country, I'd go find one I was proud of and live there.

She has recieved virtually 100 % approval here. I watched her at a kid's school, and she came over as warm and genuine. It was nice to see Obama able to think on his feet too. He actually paused to think what he was talking about, unlike the previous idiot who paused to get instructings via his ear piece. Politics aside, the Obamas are a very pleasant couple.
