CONTROVERSIAL OR JUST PLAIN SILLY?


Sarkozy was in Egypt on an official trip to meet with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. His decision to take his new girlfriend Carla Bruni along brought about mixed emotions. What the hell is wrong with mixing a little pleasure with business anyways huh?
This not only angered some of his political opponents back home who said Sarkozy was blurring the lines between public and private life, but check this out:
Sarkozy also came under fire from Egyptian lawmakers, who said it was improper of him to share a hotel room with his girlfriend LOL.
Independent Egyptian Member of Parliament Gamal Zahran said in parliament that by welcoming Sarkozy and Bruni, Egypt was giving the impression that the Muslim country was "ready to accept official prostitution by heads of state," All foreigners as long as they are not from a predominantly Muslim nation are allowed to shack up with their lovers at hotels here, you don't have to be a head of state to be able to do that!

I thought presidents and kings have some royal and presidential etiquette and protocol that they should follow.
