Barak Obama meets with the Queen of England.   He asks her, "Your
Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government?   Are there any
tips you can give to me?"

"Well," says the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself
with intelligent people."

Obama frowns, then asked, "But how do I know the people around me are
really intelligent?"

The Queen takes a sip of tea.   "Oh, that's easy, you just ask them to
answer an intelligent riddle."   The Queen pushes a button on her
intercom.   "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?"

Tony Blair walks into the room and says, "Yes, my Queen?"

The Queen smiles and says, "Answer me this please, Tony ~ ~ ~ Your mother
and father have a child.   It is not your brother and it is not your
sister . . . Who is it?"

Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answers, "That would be me."

"Yes! Very good," says the Queen.

Obama goes back home to ask Joe Biden, his vice presidential choice the
same question ~ ~ ~ "Joe, answer this for me.   Your mother and your
father have a child.   It's not your brother and it's not your sister. 
Who is it?"

"I'm not sure," says Biden.   "Let me get back to you on that one."   He
goes to his advisors and asks every one, but none can give him an
answer.   Finally, he ends up in the men's room and recognizes Colin
Powell's shoes in the next stall.

Biden asks Powell, "Colin, can you answer this for me?   Your mother and
father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister.   Who is
it?"

Colin Powell yells back, "That's easy ~ It's me!"

Biden smiles, and says, "Thanks!"

Then, he goes back to speak with Obama.   "Say, I did some research and I
have the answer to that riddle.   It is Colin Powell!"

Obama gets up, stomps over to Biden, and angrily yells into his face,
"No!, you idiot! . . . It's Tony Blair!"

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

lol heard this one before about Bush when him and Tony Blair were both still in office.  Guess the queen is suffering from old timers since she doesn't know who the new prime minister is hehehehe.   grin

Yep, I knew she was getting senile when she accepted a meeting with Obummer.
