    It may be a celebration, but surely a president should avoid public behavior that makes him look like a stupid ****

    With this kind of rhetoric that only seems to have been espoused by far right wing extremists in America, do you know who uses similar rhetoric?

    These guys:



    I mean why would you even care? If you're going to use the same rhetoric as South African White Supremacists regarding Mandela, why do you even care what Obama does at his memorial?

    So excuse me while I laugh away your attempt at a jab at Obama that even I don't care about.

    Statesmen

    1. A man who is a leader in national or international affairs.
    2. A male political leader regarded as a disinterested promoter of the public good.
    3. A man who is a respected leader in a given field
    Yeah, were not talking about some random ass-hat, so I fail to see the relevance of citing the behavior of people on the street. The guy is there as a representative of the US people and on official state business.

    With that said, the right is over playing the manufactured outrage big time

    As the saying goes... "if looks could kill..."

    But then, what goes around, comes around. If her hubby doesn't want a selfie with her, she'll do a selfie without him:

    LOL - and her smile is significantly broader than in her hubby's photo.

    If you saw the memorial service on TV, the entire tone of the event was exciting and celebratory, not sad and somber. I'm not sure if that was simply a manifestation of South Africa culture, the fact that Nelson Mandela had lived a very long life or both but that atmosphere of celebration was led by the South African people in the stadium. I think the South Africans electrifying the atmosphere with happiness was likely contagious to those from other places and affected people like our President and the leaders of the UK and Denmark. People in the stands were literally dancing and cheering. You can't go into another culture and impose our ways of doing things on them. When in Rome....

    I've found most people I've talked with around the water cooler were fine with it. It seems the only people bothered were those who already don't like the President. In any event, I think it'll help him with younger supporters.
