This from the guy who was caught on tape talking with his mouth full, grabbed German Chancellor Merkel from behind causing her to practically leap out of her chair, and greeted Tony Blair with, "Yo, Blair. How are you doing?" I give you our esteemed President, George W. Bush:
When you've just made it sound like the Queen is more than 200 years old, there may be a few ways of recovering from the gaffe. But turning to her and giving her a sly wink is probably not included in any book of royal etiquette.
That's what happened yesterday after George Bush mangled his greeting to the Queen on her state visit to the US, reports The Daily Mail.
Stumbling over his words, he came perilously close to suggesting that the monarch had toured the States in 1776.
