presidential shudders

i'm so disappointed that there are multiple pictures of the current president of the united states that make me so uncomfortable, i shudder. this occured at the olympics this week.


i know photographers try to snap photos at moments of blunder, but...

he also attempted to give the german chancellor, merkel, a backrub at the G8 summit in 2006, which resulted in these shots:



shudder.

by the way, did you hear the one where the US president left the G8 summit meeting by saying "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter!" ?

yeah, that really happened. in poor taste, mr. president.

I hate to defend him, but the volleyball player in question did ask him to slap her bottom. He instead hit her back. Either way, he was going to look bad.

In the case of the backrub incident I'm not sure what (or indeed if) he was thinking, but on the other hand Misty May-Treanor must have had a rush of blood to the head inviting the Commander in Chief to swat her behind for luck. Way to improve your country's standing overseas. Not to worry, I'm sure you'll make a much better ambassador. ;-)

Nothing like 60 year old flesh massaging 60 year old flesh on every blog. Dubya is still a paduan learner compared to the Jedi master Bill Clinton.

Interesting responses there - for a legal Alien to tell he can only run for the office twice , so you can vote him for third time doesn't tell good about the voters here :D.

APixie - I guess this is part of GWB's once a year camera gaffe programme I guess. Heard about his famous Scooter, Pretzel and caught in undershirt pics? Google search will give you those.

And nobody commented on the Polluter comment. Thats how rest of the world percieves, the intentions of US when it comes to Environmental issues :D

On side note - looks like you have started reading the British newspapers :D
