    On the other hand, its far from important enough to spend a whole bunch of time or effort on.
    Thanks for the laugh. I needed that today.

    Really.

    What is he supposed to do - refuse to smile? Refuse to take the picture?

    You don't think that would have caused more problems?

    I can see the headlines:

    'Obama Snubs Denmark PM. Danes Outraged'

    Jeez - the guy can't win.

    fun game aint it?

    Point is that the only one that can call it a selfie is the person taking the picture.. and that was Helle Thorning Schmidt, Prime Minster of Denmark. She asked Cameron and Obama to be in it and they said why not.. Guess what, our politicians are human after all! They like to have fun also, and take photos at events and stuff like that.. who knew!

    Once again neither you or any of your friends are the President of the United States who supposedly respresents all of us and not just themselves. Also, context, again this was the memorial for a foreign dignitary the POTUS himself thought was so special we need to lower our flag for.

    One thing is not like the other.

    Was it a "selfie" or were they watching videos of Mandela playing with that couples' kids or something else perfectly acceptable?

    Photos can be deceiving. They capture a moment out of context.

    If deranged obsession was a tradable currency we'd be out of debt.

    I don't have one of these new fangled phones.

    They are obviously watching the screen.

    Where is the camera lens? Does anybody here have that phone?

    I don't have a problem with it - I expect Obama to be somewhat juvenile in everything he does - but I'm not the one who made it world news, in all the newspapers, and made it go viral on Twitter and other social media. And I'm not the one who put the sour lemon in Michelle Obama's mouth. And just to be clear, David Cameron, the CONSERVATIVE British Prime Minister is also being criticized by his nation's media so this is hardly a rightwing conspiracy to embarrass Obama.

    Did either nation lower their flag for Mandela? No? Hmmmm.

    It wasn't that she snapped the picture but that A POTUS mugged for it. If she asked for a photo, again this is the POTUS, that's what staff photogs are there for.

    Again he didn't have to say no. He could have simply said that we'll have a photo taken together after the memorial service.
