ABC’s Jake Tapper weighs in on the iPod Obama gave the queen at the link below.
I’m sure the queen couldn’t wait to see photos from Obama's Inauguration or listen to Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Denver.
The iPod was loaded with:
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
Audio of President Obama 2009 Inauguration Address
The first six items reflected a nice gesture on Obama’s part.
The last three items reflected Mr. Obama’s egocentric personality and lack of any knowledge of proper protocol when dealing with the Queen of our closest ally.
