1 Queen = 12 Presidents!!!
In an economic downturn, one wonders whether our Founding Fathers made the right choice in breaking away from England. During the reign of England’s current Queen Elizabeth, we in the United States have had 12 U.S. Presidents! Yes, that’s 16 elections, 12 inaugurations, and 11 pensions while our neighbors across the pond have had but 1 coronation. Hmm!
Harry S. Truman with Queen Elizabeth
The haberdasher from Missouri looks a little uncomfortable in the presence of Royalty.
Dwight Eisenhower with Queen Elizabeth
Dwight compliments the Queen on her dazzling smile.
John F. Kennedy with Queen
JFK appears a little preoccupied. Maybe, he was expecting a call from Marilyn Monroe.
Lyndon Baines Johnson without Queen but with Dog with Floppy Ears
Apparently, LBJ had no photo ops with the Queen; however, he did take a photo with a dog named “Queen” (I made that up).
Richard Nixon with Queen Elizabeth
Dick explains to Queen, “I’m not a crook.”
Gerald Ford with Queen Elizabeth
What this bust shot does not show is the fact that the Queen is smiling through the pain of Gerry – noted for his clumsiness - stepping on her toes.
Jimmy Carter with Queen Elizabeth
Check out the smiles (or should I say grimaces). These two clearly do not like each other.
Ronald Reagan with Queen Elizabeth
The Queen has just told a dilly, and the Gipper is either having a hearty laugh or yawning.
George Bush with Queen Elizabeth
If you’re thinking that these two look like stiffs, you’re right! This picture is actually of two mannequins.
Bill Clinton with Queen Elizabeth
Clinton’s “cat that ate the canary” grin is because he had just been introduced to the Queen’s chubby intern.
George W. Bush with Queen Elizabeth
“Dubyah” is regaling the Queen on the bliss of rounding up cattle at the ranch in Crawford.
Barack Obama with Queen Elizabeth
Now it’s the Queen’s turn to appear uncomfortable in the presence of our first African-American President (unless, of course, you count Bill Clinton).
Just thought I’d throw this picture in.
Thank you to Small Town Girl for the idea for this article.
