    And I'm saying even with all of those things you said, what Obama did was not wrong, period.

    His wife apprently thought different. enough so that she made him switch seats and put herself between them.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

Apparently it is not just the Royal Families in Europe that intermarry.

    Of course you feel that way, all Obama faithful do. Again they should have sent Biden, at least he knows how to behave at such events and even if he doesn't behave, it's not the POTUS doing it.

    No she wasn't actually upset according to the photographer who took the picture of the selfie. It looks like people were switching seats because at some point Cameron's been replaced by a black lady.

    And all Obama attackers feel the same way. No matter what he does, no matter how trivial, certain people will attempt to make a big deal out of it. I am not an Obama supporter, I do not like the guy. But c'mon. He took a picture of himself. Now you find out when he took that picture, and if anyone was speaking and if someone was speaking that person came out and was bothered by this picture then it might be considered a little rude. But noone that I am aware of other than Obama attackers cares. Again. He took a picture of himself.

    No, it's not. This was a picture between two heads of state at a memorial service. This was non-disruptive. Had they pulled out the staff to arrange a photo shoot in the middle of the service, then yes, it would be wrong.

    This is a manufactured outrage. Nothing more.

    And you have to deal with him for three more years. And if the Far Right chooses not to get their **** together by then, then you might have to deal with Hillary for another eight!

    No of course not lol. Kinda proud of my Prime Minister even though I dont support her politically. Shows she is just as human as the next guy.

    By the way his wife looks, he is in big trouble.
    According to the AFP camera man who took it, that is not true. A few moments before the picture was taken she was talking and joking with Helle and the Cameron.

    No that would be AFP.

    And I'm not the one who put the sour lemon in Michelle Obama's mouth.
    Out of context. You have no way in knowing if or why she has a "sour lemon" in her mouth. For all you know she could be smiling a few seconds later. According to the AFP camera man who took the picture she was chatting and laughing with the Danish Prime Minister only minutes before. By all accounts the whole arrangement was very non formal, just as Mandel liked it.

    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.
    Well they are not exactly criticizing him as far as I can see. Sure there are the usual suspects, but mostly it is rather positive or ignored.
