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.

That snub by the Saudis was BS also
How about sticking to the TRUTH
Sorry if you disagree, but what you see is BO sticking his hand out at first to shake and then towards the end acting like he is pointing towards the next person to shake hands with whom ever was behind him.
In the second video he clearly is also trying to shake hands with the gentlemen in line and the first to finally shake his hand was the woman.
I will not try to convince you of anything, but you also can not claim that I am not sticking to the truth. We are welcome to a difference in opinion and I will respect your take on the videos. Respect my take as well rather than slamming me for it.
Putin has such obvious contempt for the amateur he doesn't even bother to hide it. I think the former KGB officer saw the amateur's promise to be "more flexible" with him as a clear sign of weakness, fright and ineptitude.
Putin now knows Emperor Zero will lose the election.
The guy in the middle looks to be leaning on a walker. That makes me curious about the back story on this pic.
You can bet y our bippi that putin knows - and knew - just who and what 'bummer is/was before the election...as does China. they know the truth - but it's more advantageous for them to keep it quiet and use it to make 'bummer dance to their tune.
In the meantime, their contempt is palpable...
Nope that lady did not shake his hand look again
You are seeing what you want to see
You're saying the Chinese want the amateur to dance? Racist b@stards ... /sarc
Cue Baghdad Bob.
They’re the Night Wolves MC.
[and Alexander, the huge dude on the left is a god]
And an interesting take on “Russian politcal correctness” and “liberals”
Putin dislikes Obama for being a wimp and a fake.
Putin actually liked Bush...I saw him defend him on the BBC ...the BBC idiot was asking questions in a way that suggested he bash Bush, Putin corrected the guy and told him he was wrong and that Bush was a good man trying to do what was right.
of course, that didn’t stop Putin from stabbing the US in the back, but that was just business as usual.
Obama appears to be weak: Not only Putin, but China’s moves on the Philippines was done because it looks like we won’t get decent backing from the USA...
No, he bowed again..to the Presidente of Mexico
what have we become
I’ve wondered too if the Russians have the dirt on obama and if they may be blackmailing him.
THEN, for the fun part, putin bush search results
