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.

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.
barie: "You don't really buy that gay monkey with a grenade thing do ya? Do yah?
Look, you like tandori chicken, I like tandori chicken, right? So help a brother out, wouldja.
Yeah, I saw that. they left out the butt-dragging slouch toward the closest door. And he just couldn’t quite turn for the camera-—I suspected Putin was crushing his paw.
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
Dominant in terms of the butch one in the homosexual relationship he was seeking in Russia. Unfortunately, his activist friends had other plans.
When the translators translate our Intellectual President’s favorite expression to describe a quantity, “bunch of”, the world leaders know they’re dealing with a 9-year old.
A mighty mighty big man!
Poor lil Putty had to slink away and have himself a wine cooler just to get over the shock of being in the mere presence of Big Barry.
Patti Wood, author of "Success Signals: Body Language in Business," made a similar analogy.
"It was very odd. Obama is treating him like he was greeting a doorman," she said.
That's because 0bambi always tries to look like the hip-hop president. A casual glance shows he's a rank amateur and way above his league. The hacks at NBC are ever the fawning sycophants.
Just wait until one of LaBambi's missiles goes astray and takes out some Russian installation over in Syria. Then we'll see the SHTF, and president Bunny Pants won't be able to hide behind Bush, congress or any red line.
It would be comical if it wasn't so damned dangerous
Hussein is so manful in that bumper car - just takes my breath away. s/s/s/s/
Putin pictures - oh, my god, is he married? kisses, kisses, kisses
Yes, I know he’s married and a communist hard liner, but he is a macho man who walks the walk.
I figure he could take out Hussein permanently in one well placed blow and he would know where that place is and I suspect he was looking at that spot when he shook Hussein’s hand.
I hurt myself laughing.
Yeah with leadership like Boehner Grahmnesty and McQueg I'm sure 0bama's real worried about congress.
Sadly the GOP leadership in congress has less stones than 0bozo.
Whaaaaaat? Bathhouse Barry— hell Putin has photos of him, no doubt. Good Lord what lickspittle media— probably same persuasion.
“Barack Obama, the first gay, black, muslim, woman president...”
ROFLMAO! Thanks. I needed that today! :)
