Reina, it was a perfectly valid question.I f I recall correctly, and feel free to correct me if I am wrong, Chelsea was under the age of 18 when she accompanied her parents on foreign trips. Jenna is, 22 or 23, and let's face it has no obvious purpose or role at the G8 summit or on the trip to Denmark.

ette, thanks for clearing that up for me.

Do I need new glasses or was Bush's birthday 'cake' actually a giant donut? Shows the Queen's great sense of humour again! I wonder if the cake was eaten or just admired if it was baked by the court's cook...

I have to disagree with the comments that Jenna and Fred would make a good couple. Just imagine that roundfaced, spoiled texan with a tiara and hugging a punchbowl on some big ball or something... Maybe it's just that she is a Bush...

Poor Mary, I'm sure that Mr. Rasmussen is nice company but still.. I believe Mary would have had more fun if she had been able to talk to some new people as well. It seemed to me she was trying to peek over the table to see her hubby. :p

I would too! :) I'm not saying that Bush would have been nice company, just that the conversation seemed to be livelier on Fred's side of the table. And then there's the thing that I usually do miss my husband on large dinner parties as he's always wrapped up in some heated conversation and generally tends to vanish somewhere in parties. Not to say that I would be a bore, just that all these events usually have something to do with his acquaintances and that I have the unfortunate 'luck' of being sat next to a bore or two who are impossible to chat with...

Ah, what do I really know... :p

I agree that people need to keep their personal feelings towards Bush out of their opinions of things he does out of necessity. By this I mean, it's obvious there are quite a few people on the boards who dislike President Bush for whatever reason, and their posts are attacks towards Bush... it's as though people don't take into account that he is a leader of a nation and there are somethings that he is required to do... and somethings we will never understand, but are policy. I do believe that this cook incident is just that, policy, and to comment that he wanted his cook to make him a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich (as though he is a simple man), or to say something along the lines of, "...it's Bush so it doesn't surprise me..." seems quite rude. (I'm paraphrasing so people get the jest, there were many comments such as these, I'm not trying to single anyone in particular out, those two types of comments and comments simply stick out in my mind at the moment.) I, obviously am a Bush supporter, so my views and offences probably come off as such... but at the same time, I supported Clinton, so this can't be simply writtend off as my political view as far as which "side" I support. In my opinion, President Bush is my president, at this point, I need to support him... I think my mind set is kind of that of, "I can talk poorly of him, but those who don't live in the US can't...childish I know, but it's a deep loyalty that you can't really fault...

Anyway, that's my two sense. Went off on a tangent...sorry! Hope everyone is enjoying their days...or nights...or whatever... I'm off to enjoy some very beautiful (and HOT) Colorado summer sunshine! At least while it lasts...it's suppose to rain later this evening...go figure.
Well said! :)

Well here's my two cents: Only Americans can criticize the president, but Americans can criticize any royal family they desire? I call that double standards. What sheer arrogance!

I agree, I don't think American's should criticize another countries political decisions, or their leaders...and I try not to (as far as politics are concerned), because it wouldn't be right. I don't care if you criticize President Bush's clothing (as I do with the Royals), or if you comment on how he looks as though he's incredibly bored, or tired, or whatever...but commenting on the leader of another countries political moves isn't right... I don't comment on other countries political motives, so I'm not really setting a double standard, now am I?

More then all that, the comments that have been made on this particular thread are attacks on President Bush's person based on disagreement with his political views, and that, to me, isn't right or fair. This is suppose to be a politic's "free" board, so comments such as those posted before go to far...they are means of expressing political disagreement, however shaded someone thinks it is.

It looks like Fred is immitating the scene from the movie Big where Tom Hanks eats that tiny little piece of pickled corn. Very funny!

Oh yah, one more thing, I wanted Jochim to be sitting next to Jenna. That we we could start rumors of those to being an item!:p

Oh please not. Jenna is such a foolish girl. she's got this American highschool mentality around her, and I really don't like that.

I just loved to see Jenna in this dinner with the The Royal Family. She is very pretty, IMO, and her cloth seems to be very elegant to the occasion.

I think Fred was having a hell of a good time with the presidents' daughter!. I think he was being himself really.
What a difference when he is close to mary he seems so up-tide and stress looking around as if he is counting the seconds to get away from the whole situation. usually is mary who does the talk constantly looking at him and he is just simply somewhere else
