    You be the judge. was Obama out of line while posing with the UK prime minister and the Danish Primie Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt as she took a photo of the trio on her smartphone? It has went "Viral!" And the criticism is still coming in!

    The most critical person of this little innocent looking "Selfie" however seems to be the First Lady! Do you think Obama dissed Michelle? And more importantly, did the trio diss the memory of Mandela??

    SEE: http://metro.co.uk/2013/12/10/selfi...-pose-at-memorial-for-nelson-mandela-4225495/

    AND [the set of photos showing Michelle before, during and following the photo, even moving her husband away from PM Helle]: http://sandrarose.com/2013/12/obama...memorial-service-and-michelle-is-not-pleased/

    Dude yall must get excited every time this man sneezes sideways.

    It's not uncommon for dignitaries to do stuff like this. At the funeral mass of Pope John Paul 2,

    It showed a lack of concern for anyone but himself, it lacked class, and maturity. Probably do not need to make much out of it.

    Well,

    Thanks for the good ol' boy advice! He hasn't sent me over any edge, but you can think what you want, as your posts show that y'all is good at this way of thinkin'!

    God bless you real good Zaac, your comments are always fun to read and as for sneezing sideways, be sure I am not a sneezin' at your thoughts and views. Like a hanky, you are always around to wipe off the mess our sideway sneezes make on this board!

    Let me ask the others this: What did we do before Zaac, our moral conscious arrived and started pointing us in a new and better direction???

    Honestly, Zaac, I love you....I just don't see eye-to-eye with you! Maybe I'm taller than you, not sure, but that could be the reason our eyes never meet! :thumbsup:


    ONE LAST NOTE - the photo of Bush seems to indicated the services are over. That doesn't appear to be true when Obama allowed the PM blonde to anap the selfie!

    ALSO - That photo of Ms. Obama was more than liekly prior to the selfie OP, because there is photographic evidence to support that she was sourpussed well into the aftermath of the incident!

    You are definitely good at spinning things, so I thought I'd try to keep you honest!

    You have to admit that Obama is entertaining. Now he is the Teenager-In-Chief.

    Note how he also has his hand on phone, wants to make sure he is fully in the scene.

    You mean like anything GWB did sent you into apoplexia? No, we're not that bad. And if you truly think this is behavior becoming the office of president, you're a bigger knucklehead than even I gave you credit for.

    From the article:

    Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt as she took a photo of the trio on her smartphone

    So it was the Danish PM's idea to take the photo and Obama was just playing along. Apparently she was flirting or maybe she simply wanted a picture of her with the two most powerful people on earth. Was Obama supposed to say no?

    WHAT IS THE FUSS ABOUT? As Rev said it was lacked class and was immature. Let it go.

    You want tacky, immature, and flirting? How about when Michele Bachmann kissed President Bush after the State of the Union address?

    Man that ain't nothing but a bunch of conjecture on your part. Have they said yet at what point of the ceremony this was taken? How do you know it wasn't befoer the ceremony started?

    As expected, and par for the course, yall make excuses for the people you like and are constantly not giving the folks you don't like the same benefit of the doubt.

    This love of partisan politics by the church is gonna witness a whole lot of folks to hell.

    And before I arrived, I'm sure it was very rare that anyone called the collective wickedness coming from the lot of you what it is. No doubt you were all too busy amening one another and patting each other on the back to recognize the unGodliness of your behavior.

    As usual, you ain't got a clue and don't know what you think you know.

    And as far as he goes, many have said he's not a Christian so he's got an excuse for his behavior.

    What's the excuse for yours and other's on this board constant unGodly behavior toward one God has placed in authority over you? Did you pray for the President today?...and don't worry . That was rhetoricall as I know that no one who speaks of this man as yall do daily is sincerely praying for him. But lie to yourself about that too.

    There is gall ... and there is audacity! There is arrogance. And then there is judgement, and I think you have just demonstrated the ability to rub us all the wrong way! I say shame on you. But, your sense of pride would only see this as one more thing to cast judgement on! God bless you. And regardless of what you think of us on this board, we will all be in heaven with you! That should be a concern for you! We may all jump you up there and bend and ruffle your wing feathers to the point of rendering them inoperable :smilewinkgrin:

    He's also an adult and he's President, so, no, he really has no excuse for his behavior. Carry his water all you want, Zaac, but Obama's actions were disgraceful.
