This is not unintentional.

This is deliberate show of disrespect to the U.S. and her REAL allies.

I don’t know. If it’s “his military”, it must be “his desk”.

Remember, the shoe thing is especially disrespectful in the Arab Muslim world. He speaks pretty Presidential words in English to us, and shows the soles of his feet to the Arabs.

It reminds me of the days when Arafat would talk peace in English and speak of Israeli genocide to his crowds in Arabic.

I think there’s far more to this than being a clueless jerk. Its more like a deep seated loathing of this country.

What a classless buffoon! I can’t imagine any other President doing that, even Clinton. (Of course, he desecrated the office another way.) Every day, in every way, he disgusts me.

Nothing but a typical 0kaka “in YO’face” gesture to the country and its values.

This uncomfortable physical position says it all; it was meant to be, IOW, a staged insult.

You notice he never has a lot of paperwork on his desk? All other presidents had at least one stack of folders on his desk. This imposter has nothing.

He’s just a classless individual. His mom didn’t teach him to be respectful of others. She never taught him to be respectful of certain objects. He never learned it from anyone else. This object means nothing to him. It’s history is meaningless to an individual who cares about only himself.

What can we expect from a _resident? None of what we are means jack to this guy. Our closest ally??? What’s that? Oh that’s silly.

This guy thinks Kenya or Libya or soon to be Syria are our closest allies.

He’s a total fruitcake nut-job. He is adored by people who themselves have no respect for our nation. He embodies what they would like to see the United States treated like.

It is sad what we allow our citizens to be informed with, the hatred and all for our nation. The classic finer points of our founding mean nothing to these people. Never-mind that conditions in other countries are worse than our own. Never-mind that our standard of living for most of our citizens has been better than that for most of the people living on our planet. We have habitual complainers that don’t see that.

Obama is trash. If he were White, he would be White trash.

Empowerment for some Blacks, has taken on an aspect that is disturbing. Nobody else, and no object other than themselves is worthy of their respect. They are the center of their universe, and nothing else matters. We see some of that in a lot of different cultures, but here I think we see it in a group that has experienced a sense of loss, of deprivemet..., and to compensate they have pumped themselves up so full of self-worth that nothing else can be considered worthy of respect.

It’s just a desk. It’s an object. I am the real important thing in this room. It is here for me to do as I please to it. Don’t you ever forget it!

“Character: Depending on one’s responsibilities, character can be defined in many ways. But if we’re talking about the character of a president, then perhaps the best way to define it is that Ronald Reagan said what he meant and meant what he said. We have to remember that, post-Watergate, Republicans had lost trust with the American people. Ronald Reagan regained it by honoring them through his respect for the office. The old story about how President Reagan never removed his coat while in the Oval Office is more than a quaint anecdote. It exemplifies what he felt for the office of president.”

From an article in Forbes:

Just Who Might Be the Next Ronald Reagan?

It’s always posed.

If the photographer uses colour film, he can’t just snap good pictures on the fly.

The BO supporters in my extended family, the only BO supporters I am acquainted with, are the same people who would put their feet on my furniture and have not been invited back for that and similar reasons (I do not open up conversations about politics with family- friends are different).

But I am very impressed.

King BO saw the photographer and, instead of flipping us the bird, scratched the bottom of his shoe full of dirt from his “walk around the grounds” on that historical American (it’s not his own, it’s ours) antique desk aged in that very room.

In the Muslim culture, use of the bottom of one’s feet is the ultimate insulting gesture

That Biden in the background is not squirming at this behavior should finally disqualify him form any public office.

But, I’m a girl, who was raised correctly, so. . .

That picture was a posed as a rock star flipping the bird to the paparazzi.

It’s not as if the photographers are in the Oval office at all times, and it certainly is not some selfie type taken by a staffer.

I so agree. Painful message that we the people are as under Obama’s boot as that national treasure in the photo, on which he rests his foot.

That seems to be the message he was sending.

Definitely the reason he has allowed so many pics of him pointing the sole of his shoe/shoes at the camera. It’s the muzzie equivalent of flipping off the American people, which he has also been photographed doing.
