LOS CABOS, Mexico -- The White House urged reporters not to read too much into Vladimir Putin's body language during his public statement after meeting Monday with President Obama, repeatedly stressing that the Russian president is always "businesslike."
"This isn't the first body language-gate we've had with the Russians," deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said at an afternoon press briefing here, noting that there were reports of a tense discussion between Obama and Putin's predecessor, Dmitry Medvedev, though it's widely acknowledged that the two became friends over the course of about 10 meetings in the past three years.
Putin was serious and cold during his brief remarks, and didn't appear particularly receptive to Obama's words.

New Axis of Evil.........SYRIAIRANRUSSIACHINA PLAN WAR GAMES (on The Drudge Report!!!)
Vlad knows “O” is a one termer, too!
This is the same White House that said we’d have 6% unemployment right now, right?
Is there ANY metric we can use besides his actual words that they find accurate? If science could ever attach a generator to how stupid the admin and it’s flacks think everyone is, the energy needs of superluminal travel would be solved.
Macho man Putin wouldn’t think of letting no limp-wrist tuck him up in bed.
There is a behavioral/appearance difference between the two that tells me Putin is much more of a man than Obama. Putin walks around with his shoulders out front like ‘bring it on’. Obama walks ,especially on steps, with his fingers and hands flapping like he was about to fly. The photo of Obama looking at two people in jujitsu says it all. I can’t and don’t believe Lt. Col. West has such a characteristic behavior.
Handshake snub by Russians
Handshake snubs Saudi
Booed by baseball fans
Yeah, we love you too bambi! /sarc
Mitt Romney, at least, would cut Putin’s hair off. If there was any hair left to cut off.
If Obama isn’t a Homo he sure gives a great imitation of one.
"This is my last election, Obama interjects. After my election, I have more flexibility."
I’d like to see Putin vs Odummy in a pay-per-view cage match.
Putin was KGB. Obama already had let slip (and publically) that he was giving Russia wgatever it wanted once the election was over. Putin has no reason to waste any time or need to play nice with Zero.
Putin looks like he has about as much respect for Bambi as he would for a turd on the sidewalk.
Wehn the White House decides the reporters need to read something, it will be given to them.
Nukes or better for ante, North Koreans are Wild.
That Handshake snub by the Russians was not true
He was introducing his staff
Posting things that are not true does nothing to help our cause
