The Anointed One Snubbed

Comrade Obama may be steering us directly toward economic catastrophe, but at least the whole world loves and respects us as promised, right? Wrong:

Strength gets respect. Liberal sniveling about how sorry you are on behalf of your country gets you the equivalent of a pie in the face. Unfortunately, the pie is going in our faces too. Imagine this happening when Reagan was around.

On tips from J, R985wasp, and Artfldgr.

wow... thats about all you can say to that. Even W. never just got ignored. Where the hell was he at anyway?

I expected to see 1 instance of somebody not paying attention and missing the offer to shake hands but when you ignore one hand and wait for the next hand to shake.. that speaks volumes.

Dumbasses. Obama is introducing the American delegation to Medevev. He's gesturing to them, not trying to shake their hands.

Definite snub.

I wouldn't shake his hand either.

Posted by: Jimbo at July 13, 2009 10:15 PM

Yeah, that's right, the American delegation snubbed their president. Must be republicans.

Posted by: Anonymous at July 13, 2009 10:28 PM

I'm not normally one to defend Obama, but he wasn't being snubbed, just putting his hand out as an introductory gesture.

Does this REALLY suprise anyone?

Posted by: Michelle at July 13, 2009 11:03 PM

He's introducing a delegation (with whom he probabaly is not familiar with anyway so why would he know their names) to Medvedev with his mouth closed and without a translator present?

Sorry Van Helsing, I'm not buying the spin you're selling on this one.

But Mark, I have a barrel of Commie-Flavored-Kool-Aid here for you. Great price. It only costs your job, your society, your country and the future of liberty and prosperity. It's a small price to pay, right?

it's a snub alright

It's not a snub. Drive a stake though this one.

You stupid obeast supporters! ROFLMAO!!!!!!!! A GESTURE? OH I am ROLLING!!!!!!! THE WORLD IS LAUGHING AT YOUR MONKEY BOY AND YOU GIRLS CAN'T STAND IT. HAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA Yeah, his face looks like he was gesturing. HAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAA YOu assholes make this better than any snub by the Russians. This is RICH and YOLU JACKOFFS have MADE MY DAY!!! How can I EVER repay you? HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHhhhahahahaha!

Posted by: AndyPandy at July 14, 2009 5:58 AM

Does it really matter, at this point?

Our debt is already in an exponential death spiral. We've been borrowing to pay interest on previously owed interest for years, and now "we" (read: Obama et al) are ramping up our borrowing to levels never even fathomed before. This is before we even add in asinine fantasies like Cap'n Trade and Universal Healthcare bullshit.

The first time a Treasury auction fails, get ready to hunker down for a while.

Obama getting snubbed? Really?

Fuck him.

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 6:03 AM

Oh, he was looking to shake the hands alright. Jeez, he can't even get that right.

Posted by: JoeShmoe at July 14, 2009 6:18 AM

I'm the last person you'll find supporting Obama, but I do have to say that it does look like he's introducing/gesturing and not looking to shake hands.

Posted by: Anonymous at July 14, 2009 6:28 AM

Anonymous,
It looks to me like he gave up because he was getting snubbed and changed his MO to look like he was introducing/gesturing on the last guy. Look at the other guy at the very beginning as they walk into the room. Looks like he is directing Obama. Are these guys Obama's cabinet, czars, senators, or congressmen? Anybody recognize any of them?

Posted by: C-Bug at July 14, 2009 6:36 AM

Cowlove has it right.

While we do get a little cheap little thrill from watching Odumbo screw up AGAIN....

It pales in comparison to the insanity and finacial devastation that is looming on the horizon for ALL of us when his plans to "fundamentally change" America succeed.

Posted by: Michelle at July 14, 2009 6:40 AM

Oh we'll be "fundamentally changed" alright. It will be a HUGE change for a lot of people when they have to learn how to skin rabbits and gut deer.

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 6:45 AM

Been learning stuff like that, myself. And collecting dead tree copies of gardening and survival information. In fact, I've been collecting just about everything I can figure they're gonna want us not to have. That reminds me, I need a big box of .40S&W for my new XDM.

Posted by: Mr Evilwrench at July 14, 2009 6:54 AM

that had to hoit!

Posted by: nancz at July 14, 2009 6:56 AM

He didn't get snubbed. I had to watch it about ten times to see it. For some reason, it was easier to tell on Google video instead of Youtube because the was the screen was smaller and easier to see. Try it.

what spin? the only spin is the one you put on it - the russians have ALWAYS hated u.s. this is nothing new - your potus continues to drive the point home, meanwhile those of u.s. who don't adore him are LOAO at how a majority of the people could have been sucked into his buffoonery. now apologize.

Posted by: nancz at July 14, 2009 7:04 AM

Evilwrench, +10 on the XDM. I have the 9mm XD and it's a fine weapon. I've shot the XD .40 and if the XDM is an improvement on that, then it must be fantastic.

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 7:04 AM

Also, good luck getting ammo, seriously.

I have to look every day now and keep my fingers crossed that:

1.) the store got a shipment that day, and
2.) I'm not too late.

Thankfully I already have a few thousand rifle rounds and 12 gauge shells are plentiful. Not so much for handgun calibers.

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 7:08 AM

Not only did they SNUB him, they didn't even acknowledge his presence. By the time O got to the last rep he knew it was pointless.....just look at the disappontment on his face. C'mon.


I said months ago that the U.S. would be the laughing stock of the world......right out of the gate.

O might better think about getting used to tar and feathers and a dunce cap.

Posted by: JoeShmoe at July 14, 2009 7:16 AM

BO's obviously gesturing introductions.

There's enough BO material not to have to resort to this.

Some of you sound like you've never sat in chairs.

Posted by: Fiberal at July 14, 2009 7:20 AM

But I WANT him to get snubbed!

In fact, *I* want to snub him!

Viva la Revolucion!

Posted by: Duke at July 14, 2009 7:39 AM

Pay close attention to his body language and facial expressions,he got snubbed. You don't lean toward somebody with your hand open to just introduce someone... unless his telepromter told him to do it. :) That is before the totus took it's death plunge. :)

Posted by: Farmer Ted at July 14, 2009 7:43 AM

Kudos and hats off to anyone who snubs THE ANNOYING ONE

Posted by: SPURWING PLOVER at July 14, 2009 7:57 AM

OK, we have a great divide here. I watched it a couple of times and here's my take: The first two were attempted/rebuffed handshakes. Notice the little bow and the forward point of the hand. The last two were gestures.

Posted by: Karin at July 14, 2009 8:10 AM

Sorry gang. Much as I absolutely loathe the man for his economic and foreign policies, in this case, he does look like he is just making a very wide gesture of introduction. Kind of gooberish and a bit impatient, but this wasn't a snub. We don't need to pick apart every single thing the man does, looking for faults, or we'll be no better than the lunatic left fringe. IMO he does enough really stupid crap on his own, without our having to manufacture it for him.

Posted by: Jules at July 14, 2009 8:19 AM

I watched several times very carefully and I agree, it appears he was attempting handshakes and then after a couple snubs, he was merely gesturing.... But then again he wasn't really bowing to the King of Saud either...... I won't hold my breath for the MSM to cover this.

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 6:45 AM

Honestly Cowlove, I'm hopeing a "large" segment of the population DOES NOT learn those thing's.

Once the Liberals start dying from starvation because there are no more grocery stores and starbucks it will be a whole lot easier to get OUR country back on the right track.

Besides, they love animials so they won't kill them for food, they are BIG fans of "the culture of death" anyway so their demise won't be missed!!

Posted by: Michelle at July 14, 2009 8:23 AM

Michelle I'd alter that a bit. There are plenty of conservatives who've never needed or wanted to dress their own game. And really, when the shit hits the fan, this whole "liberal vs. conservative" garbage is out the door. No one gives a flying crap about party affiliation if folks are starving in the streets.

But yeah, urban areas (overwhelmingly "blue") will be hit harder and faster than their residents could possibly imagine. The only hope will be in getting the hell out of Dodge.

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 8:31 AM

Back on topic...

My biggest problem with harping on things like Obama getting snubbed or checking out someone's ass is two-fold. On one hand, it harkens back to Bush's days when mispronouncing the last name of the assistant deputy minister of agriculture of Kazakhstan resulted in wide-spread condemnation as the world's stupidest human from the loony left. I'm not a loony idiot, and I refused to make anything of this when there are actual, important things to take Obama to task over. And that leads to my other point: this shit doesn't matter, period. Even if Putin stood up in the middle of a UN meeting and flipped Obama the bird for all the world to see, it still doesn't matter. In fact, it sucks, because while we all laugh about Obama being a total ass clown, that ass clown is still POTUS. Not only is he still POTUS, we're all laughing at him instead of resisting his tyrannical agenda.

Again, fuck him (pardon the French).

Posted by: cowlove at July 14, 2009 8:47 AM

I agree cowlove. We should be focusing on Obama's real flaws, like his profligate spending and his desire to create a nanny state and take away our liberties. These are the real dangers. Let's not get distracted with small-minded, liberalesque pettiness.

Posted by: Judith M. at July 14, 2009 9:18 AM

yes, but. Obama being snubbed is so funny

Posted by: blue at July 14, 2009 9:29 AM

President Obama introduces President Medvedev, second from the right, to members of the U.S. delegation. Obama told Medvedev during their meetings that Russia needs to establish independent courts, a free press and fight political corruption.

Posted by: Artfldgr at July 14, 2009 10:00 AM

credit to Lunapippistrellus for the wapo slide show with that heading.

if he was snubbed, it was by his own people.

Posted by: Artfldgr at July 14, 2009 10:01 AM

Of course he was presenting his delegation. But this is funny!

Posted by: walk at July 14, 2009 10:23 AM

he is clearly trying to shake their hands,,,then look at Chairman obama's look on his face

Posted by: Bob at July 14, 2009 10:44 AM

Odd. The YouTube video looks obviously like a snub. (Easy to believe; Russians have a notoriously low opinion of blacks.) But this one does look more like he's making introductions, which makes more sense.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at July 14, 2009 11:28 AM

Dunno, he comes in there with his hand out in a handshaking gesture, and after a couple of (misses?) gets a kind of petulant look to him. It would be nice to know who these people are.

Just ordered 1200rd of .40 and a couple more mags. Still need to find a box of federal hydra-shoks. Man, a lot of people are sold out of a lot of stuff, even online.

Posted by: Mr Evilwrench at July 14, 2009 12:11 PM

It would be nice to know who these people are.
Yeah but then you'd have to actually know something instead of oiling your guns and fondling your pile of ammunition.

Here Medvedev is shaking hands with Jacob Lew, US Deputy Secretary of State.

Posted by: Anonymous at July 14, 2009 12:44 PM

Don't get wise.

Another possibility is intermediate, namely after getting snubbed thereafter to look as though you're gesturing instead of offering your hand. Sort of a more formal version of extending your hand, getting snubbed, and then using it to smooth your hair, as though that's all you'd planned on in the first place.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at July 14, 2009 12:56 PM

Don't get wise.

LOL that pretty much sums up the attitude here.

Don't let the facts interfere with reality

Another possibility is that Obama's pinky is fitted with a CIA flesh covered gun and he was about to plug a commie bastard when he recognised his Deputy Secretary of State and had to put his hand down.

Lunafruit, I gave you lot the benefit of the doubt. OTOH, you have to admit that the Nubian Narcissist does look put out, as though he's been snubbed. He certainly doesn't look pleased with events.

Posted by: Jay Guevara at July 14, 2009 2:49 PM

This reminds me of listening to Black Sabbath played backwards to hear the messages from Satan.

If you are told it's a video of President Obama introducing his delegation to President Medvedev then that's what you see.

If you are told it's a video of Obmama being snubbed by Russians and you don't have the nous to wonder why Medvedev would be shaking hands with his own staff or recognise the US Deputy Secretary of State, then sure, it looks like Obama being snubbed. It's an easy mistake if you envy the intellectual prowess of a hockey mom.

If you prefer to ignore the facts that have been presented in favour of a ridiculous alternative reality then it certainly won't be the first time and I'm damn sure it won't be the last.

Posted by: Lunapippistrellus at July 14, 2009 3:39 PM

Dunno about the rest of you, but I'm pretty good at multi-tasking.

Posted by: Nunya at July 14, 2009 8:07 PM

Why does everybody shake the next dudes hand. Clearly a snub. This was good enough for a skit on saturday night live.

Posted by: gman at July 14, 2009 8:40 PM

I'm open to the idea that he's introducing people rather than getting snubbed, except I don't see his mouth moving. If he's introducing someone to these people, shouldn't he be saying something?

Posted by: Laura at July 14, 2009 10:11 PM

I don't see his mouth moving Good grief, try looking

You'll notice he speaks before Medvedev start shaking hands. Which is what you do when formally introducing someone, you don't speak when they are shaking hands with soeone else, that would be rude. He doesn't say a lot, he doesn't need to, just the name and title.


You'll also note that his hand is well above waist level and has the palm up - not the position it would be in if you were shaking hands - compre it to Medvedev's hand.

We know one of the people 'snubbing' Obama is Jacob Lew, nominated by Obama as his Deputy Secretary of State, we have the Washington Post describing it as "President Obama introduces President Medvedev, second from the right, to members of the U.S. delegation". But this doesn't match your fevered imagination, so it has to be a Russian snub.

And you wonder why everyone is laughing at you.
