    Re: Obama's selfie

    First lady not peeved, says photographer who caught the Obama selfie - TODAY.com

    Schmidt took the photograph of Obama smiling Tuesday for a self-portrait along with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt, who took the picture with her smartphone.
    So what this is really about is that the Danish PM was sitting between Cameron and Obama, and took out her phone to take the picture. And we're outraged because Obama smiled?Is this another case where you'd like to see him tell world leaders to go **** themselves? Especially considering Denmark and Britain are our friends?

    The behavior of taking a picture at a memorial is not a problem. It is not rude or disrespectful and it is not childish.

    The behavior shown in that photo is indeed all those things and if it were anyone besides your hero doing it you'd see that.

    Likewise, if it was anyone but Obama you'd be saying it's perfectly fine.

    Re: Obama's selfie

    I didnt think it was the time or place for 3 world leaders to take a "selfie" and grin away given the event they were attending. If a member of my family had passed away and the audience were messing around like this I wouldn't be happy.

    Re: Obama's selfie

    I think Obama is a lousy POTUS, but I could care less....and so should everyone else.


    This neurotic hatred to this man that so many people have is really creepy.

    If the guy is caught on camera looking a strange way he is condemned by this group...without any knowledge of the context of the photo.


    You people honestly having NOTHING better to dispense this energy on? Your job? Your significant other? Your children? The poor? Your dog? SOMETHING?

    So dont blame Obama, blame the Danish Prime Minister. She is a socialist and a women so I am guessing you can find plenty of things that are wrong with her.
    GW Bush was there too - I'm sure the left will get around to blaming him for it sooner or later.

    Yeah, because Obama is our PRESIDENT. Of course I expect him to behave with a little decorum. Just further proof he's a total incompetent at foreign relations.

    There's nothing wrong with a President agreeing to take a picture with another foreign head of state.

    In this context, a selfie, yes it is totally inappropriate. There's a reason for staff photogs. That he thought this was a good idea further shows his incompetence in this arena. Should have sent Biden, he's a boob but at least he knows how to behave comport himself at foreign functions.
