Skip to comments.NBC: The Big Chill: A dominant Obama meets a cool Putin at G20 (BARF!)
Posted on 09/05/2013 12:15:09 PM PDT by maggief
President Barack Obama was intent on getting the upper hand as he greeted Russia's Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit on Thursday, according to body language experts who watched the frosty exchange.
From a jacket-buttoning pause to a hard-pumping handshake, Obama displayed tell-tale signs of dominance after he alit from a limo in front of St. Petersburg's Konstantin Palace, where Putin waited to meet him, communication experts said.
There was no outright hostility, but the chill between the two world leaders at loggerheads over NSA leaker Edward Snowden and a strike against Syria was evident in clenched-jaw smiles and lack of eye-contact and touching, the experts said.

World dominance is now determined by a handshake?
Why not just have an arm wrestling contest. BTW, Russia is sending
more warships to Syria.
I swear, Obama could walk around with a small placard which says “I’m being dominant right now” and MSNBC would simply report that Obama was showing constant signs of dominating the proceedings.
Putin is being polite, and professional... any doubts he has a plan too?
Dominant? Yeah, riiight.
Putin has continually made O look like an azz for months.
I’ll bet O showed up a half hour late today to try to “play dominant”.
Michelle was there?
They actually dug up body language “experts” to say Obama won? Obama is an international laughingstock but the US news media still flies cover for him.
When Obama has to pish, he uses tweezers, while Putin has to hire a crane.
What a ludicrous attempt to spin the Obama weak pansy image he has, in order to make Obama into a “war lord.” In 2008 Obama went to Cairo and apologized to the world for so called US neo-colonial militarism. Now Obama wants to be what he apologized for?
Something does not add up.
I guess Obama needs a distraction from his many disasters, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Obamacare Debacles etc.
Obama is done for. Congress will never vote for Obamas military adventure, especially after what Obama did to Libya and Egypt.
And one of the Korean Kims scored like a 39 on a round of golf. Riiiiiiiiight.
Why doesn’t Obama remind Putin that, now that the election is over, he has more flexibility?
He doesn't have to be dominant. According to the article, he only has to "display" dominance.
The perception is more important to NBC. In Obama's mind, he's acting dominant so he is dominant.
They probably had this story all typed up even before the meeting took place.
I noticed after the hand shake, obama started to put his hand on Putin’s back, but took it down like he was about to touch a hot stove.
I'm not sure what they saw, but the clip I saw showed Hussein being anything but dominate.
To clarify though, I'd really like to see Putin kick 0bama's wussy ass - as proof that Hussein is a certified pansy-ass!
Obama probably canceled the planned meeting with the Russian poofters because they would have made it so obvious what a wussy boy he is.
Makes you miss a true statesman.
