Barack Obama joins Open Government Partnership for group photo Rich Shulman writes

I don't know much about diplomatic protocols, but I would guess that waving during the group photo is something to avoid.

Just a dweeb bein a dweeb.

Did you hear Rush’s joke about it?

He said just before snapping the pic, the photog asked everyone who wanted Obama re-elected to raise their hands.
lmao

From one of the previous reposts...
 
 

I wonder how many other Obama waiving threads there will be today.

Food for thought. With all the news about him tanking lately, I have to wonder if he is trying to lose the next election.
Fat chance, but one can hope.

...his best by far was his “toast” to the Queen...the dolt revealed his absolute ignorance of protocol. He must strike fear in the hearts of his protocol office, by saying he doesn’t want to know. It shows.

This reminds me of that Leave it to Beaver episode where Beaver and all his friends agreed to make a funny face in their school photo. But Beaver was the only one to do it. Maybe that’s what happened here.

It isn’t protocol.

It’s called a lack of dignity and a complete and utter cluelessness.

This is a photo for history not the sophomore class of 2011 of Podunk High in Outer Chicago.

Just talked NY and the reception he is being given is stoney.

The world has his number and the number of his admin and it is ZERO.

Look at the woman to the upper left of him and the guy directly on the right. They are both looking at him with WTF? faces.

Just a quick, unrelated question. These are all leaders of Nations, so who it the blond, second from the right on the top row?

It’s not a group photo. It’s a photo of The One with some “stuff” in the background.

Apparently the gentleman who got blocked by his hand is the leader of Mongolia.

You can express your condolences to him on our rude President here:

Unfreaking-believable. . .twenty or more people in this pict and Obama imagines. It is ALL about him.

Pity the man behind Obama's hand - he may as well not shown up.

If anyone does not yet know what the embodiment of pathological narcissism looks like ; just stare at this pic for a while. The 'man-in- the-middle' says it all. . .

Yes it looks fake and think the camera has boldly caught the truth of Obama. Made easier, of course; because of the man himself. Look at the expression of the man next to him, and the woman to 'leftl a few rows back. They appear to be the only ones, to catch this.

. (And surely, this will not stand as 'official' but rather the one taken after... Notice too Obama's eyes. He looks like he still in some after-glow trance, post his own speech, no doubt )...

OTOH...you could be right. It just so fits his profile, however.

Check out the lady, second row down, second from the left. She’s not even looking at the camera. She’s got a look on her face like “I can’t believe he’s really doing that.” It’s priceless.
