NBC: The Big Chill: A dominant Obama meets a cool Putin at G20 (BARF!)
NBC News ^ | September 5, 2013 | Tracy Connor

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.

By what demented and delusional measure could that limp-wristed, pencil-necked pansy ever be considered dominant? Absolutely pathetic.

Petulant little punk mf’r. strutting and preening, like his homies in the baggie pants on the basketball court.

Obama can practice his “dominant look” all he wants, but anyone with half a brain cell knows Putin could flatten him in an instant.

He does play those dominance games like grabbing another’s elbow when shaking hands, and so on, without ever having actual dominance. Too complicated for MSM to read.

That’s because Obama has this tendency to bow... he was probably in the midst of stopping himself.

Put them in a room for 7 minutes and lock it from the outside. Let’s analyze the body language after that.

I don’t watch NBC. When I want factual reporting, I go to the foreign press, not Amerikan Pravda. I doubt they will spin this story the same way.

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.

I’ll bet O showed up a half hour late today to try to “play dominant”.

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.

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.

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.

A dominant Obama meets a cool Putin at G20 (BARF!)

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!

There’s the alpha male who struts and yells. He let’s everyone knows how tough he is. He tries to impose and dominate others and buffalo them. A real cock strutter. Then there are alpha males who stand back and don’t flaunt. They’ll play it cool and the moment the opportunity presents itself, they’ll take down the other alpha nice and clean. They don’t have to act tough... they ARE tough.

Obama is an empty suit. His threats are meaningless. He isn’t a leader. He’s a politician who likes to act the part. For all the problems with Putin, he is a much more effective leader and he knows how to fight. Obama can’t get over on Putin. And it’s sad that we have an American president like him.

In body language, putting ones hand on another’s back means you believe you are in charge.

He probably thought twice about it because Putin probably knows that and Vlad might have chopped him to the mat. LOL
