    You need to look at the pic again, because your claim is stupid or blind.

Not only that, if Michelle sat herself between the president and the prime minister to cool the two off like a water hose on dogs, then she emasculated the US president in public.
    Wish fulfilment overwrites the mundane reality. Insert dramatic petty partisan nonsense over innocuous out of sequence pics. That photographer had it right.

    Could you envision Margaret Thatcher doing something like that? What about Putin? Bill Clinton was a dog, but at least he behaved at state functions both at home and abroad. A sense of propriety is acquired and is not a partisan construct.

    Oh come now. You are doing that thing you ALWAYS do...which is put together your own very weird interpretation of an event and then insist it is the 'other guy' that is screwed up. Look at ALL the pics....what do you see. Obama acting like a child at church, and in ALL of those pics, Mo PISSED. All of a sudden, Barrack looks like a chastised little boy (they even had to change seats). Sorry...she does NOT look like she is responding to the person behind them (and from the picture you can see a quarter-moon of the doods head....thats it...), she AND barrack BOTH look like they are responding to some Mo said or did. Barrach looks chastised and she looks shocked.

    Some people read body language better than others. I think your interpretation is spot on.

    Probably because I'm just seeing it for what it is, not what I want it to be.

    Defending it? Nah...too strong a word. Id like to see the video. Im just stating what it LOOKS LIKE. I posted a video of Bush earlier giving the camera the finger. Its all fun. People should relax.

    You are definitely defending it.

    Where was Bush when he did this? Was he at the memorial service or in Air Force One. There is quite a difference. A little camaraderie on the place likely made the long flight bearable. It would have been very inappropriate at the actual memorial service. Location. Location. Location.
