How Berlusconi behaves in public.
Certain criticisms of Michelle Obama have been doing the rounds of MSM because she did not allow
a grappler within arm's length.
Q: Should she hide her distaste and allow a known grappler and sexist give her a hug?
A: Why did the Telegraph even ask that stupid question?
Back to time honoured sexism , where a Premier who is immune from prosecution, has a mountain
of sleaze behind him and caused an odd reaction in the wife of the US prez gets defended in
the Media because Mrs Obama did not *want* to hug him. It is of course all her fault and nothing
to do with the manner in which he greeted her.
The images speak for themselves : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/....html
Feminst backlash: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/20/berlusconi-...klash
Berlusconi greets the wife of the US president, she didn't hug him causing a diplomatic incident.
Mr Berlusconi is celebrated for his sexism, one of his escorts thought that he would aid her political
career by getting her a seat in the European Parliament, whilst the 18 year old who calls him *Papa*
wanted a council seat in lieu of whatever the 72 year old satyr gets from her. In Italy the feminists
are biting back and accusing him of devaluing politics- though that is overshadowed by the arrest
of Gianpolo Tarantini who whilst being investigated for procurement , got arrested last week on
drugs charges : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/italy/....html
The procurement charges relate to the giving of 1000 euros to between 5-8 women in exchange for
their offering of sexual services to Mr B. Thirty of the women who attended these parties at the Villa
of Silvio are in the process of being interviewed by prosecutors. But it just ups the man's ratings.
It's a cause for celebration to a nation whose political gene pool is being comprised of young
Italian blooded wealthy women who are capable of fellating their way into a political life. The
Procurement charges were quietly trundling onward until last week when further charges were
added, these included *Tampering with evidence* (if your evidence comprises 30 women, then did
he tamper with them???)
This is the inital reportage of the evidence leading to the procurment charges against Gianpolo
Tarantini, he's 35 years old and gets tarts for parties, now he's up to it in a drugs rap. I reckon
Michelle's reaction was instant rather than decided upon before hand , afterall he is very (very)
mediterannean and she may not have liked having her gown x-rayed by him or indeed the
manner of the approaches he made to her. She seems a sensible type of lady,and somewhat
reserved. The series of images are at the top of the page.
Q: Should a President's wife be entitled to greet an over-effusive puppy with a hand-shake rather
that a body hug?
A: O yes, she should really.
Q: Can idiotic media attempt to criticise a woman for exercising her choices with regard to
how she greets a grappler?
A: Not really; but they do try. Maybe the reporter should try it sometime.
