    What's the problem with taking a picture with a socialist? Careful what vitriol you spout -- Denmark consistently ranks as one of the most free, prosperous, open and liberal countries in the world (certainly more so than America!), so I'd say if your argument is "Socialism is repressive and evil" you've not got a leg to stand on.


    Edit: Not to mention the 'communist' you've referenced destroyed apartheid and flipped the bird to your Reagan at the same time, so I think he's done pretty well for himself, too.

    This is so ridiculous, it's just, ugh.
    They are just getting started. Wait till they hear about the guy who did hand signs for the deaf. Clearly Obama went to this event just to hobnob with other African pinkos and disrespect that commie pinko who they memorial was for. In one day, Obama paid too much respect to a commie pinko, and not enough respect for another commie pinko. That bastard!

    His arrogance will likely be remembered long after he's no longer President. Have to wonder what his future political plans are.

    This is nothing but people finding an excuse for angry or whatever negative emotions already present.

    This is not a real issue, just a excuse for people to grumble.

    I think the President's behavior is surprising. Hell, when I go to a memorial service, there's a certain decorum that's observed. At a wake? Same thing. Seems to me that providing souvenir photos to others in attendance is completely inappropriate. (I think the first lady thought the same thing.)

    I think Michelle's face in that picture has nothing to do with the selfie but more about Obama getting chummy with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. That's just my opinion.

    Re: Obama's selfie

    1) Obama wasn't the one taking the picture
    2) People were singing and dancing at the event, it wasn't a funeral
    3) It was neither good nor bad. As I understand the Danish PM wanted a picture with Barack and he complied. I really don't understand what the controversy is.

    I am complaining about a behavior not a picture and I am sure you know that but by all means go ahead and keep up the deflecting act for your hero.
