I'm worried about this

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I honestly, for real and for true, do not think that the President has the finesse to entertain Royalty. I'm not trying to be mean, or "anti-bush", I just think that in light of all the blustering snafus he's made, that he just don't have it together enough for a white tie affair.

With everything else he has done for the image of the US, I can just see him responding to Her Majesty with his mouth full....

Give it a rest - President Bush has met/dined with the Queen before (stated in the article BTW) and is from a social strata that is well-versed in formal etiquette.

How many members, on THIS site could acquit themselves well, at a State Dinner? Just remembering which fork to use, with each course can be a bit daunting.

Actually, having been through Marine Security Battalion training, formal dining and etiquette are required training. Plus, President Bush has also been filmed and taped at a formal dinner talking with his mouth full BTW.

Eh...I personally would worry about other things.

The worse that could happen is that the Queen and Bush get into a food fight...

But I want to worry about it.. I'm on the last day of my vacation, everything that I took time off to work on is finished, the cats are all asleep, and I'm just looking for something to yak about that (hopefully) won't start any fights

Can it be any worse than his dad vomiting on the lap of a Japanese dignitary?

Those Bush's, they have a reputation, that's for sure!

Good Grief, the Queen isn't God, she is just a woman, a person like the rest of us.

I know very little about the Prince Phillip, is he the kind of person that might do that? That might be just as interesting

LOL I was never sure that he didn't have the finesse, I was just a tad concerned that he didn't....but the Prince looks like a tough act to follow

at least everyone speaks English, wasn't it Daddy Bush that made a translation error?

Anyhoo, well I'm sure it'll be an entertaining dinner...depending on what your definition of "entertaining" is...

Ok, I admit it.... our boy the President did a pretty good job. The one time he had a slip of the tongue (saying 1776 instead of 1976), he recovered nicely, and the Queen played along to make it a rather funny moment.

....and, he pulled off the white tie rather smartly too.
