It was probably during down time, but I do agree...this would be a bigger deal if it were Bush...simply because Obama gets more of a pass from most media.

It's not a terrible, but it's sure as hell not dignified.

Bush was not above acting undignified at times, like i said, Clinton lowered the bar so low for proper presidential behavior in office, that even 0bama has trouble getting below it.

Mandela and Castro actually maintained a fairly close and friendly political relationship. I don't think Mandela would want people to use his memorial service as an opportunity to take lame political stabs about who should shake whose hand.

Defintely an IMPEACHABLE offense. Add it to the list of the 80,000 others that the right wing has concocted.

Give me a break! The honoring of Mandela was a celebration of the man's life and I'm quite sure that many dignitaries and other celebrated people were taking photos for their personal collection. What's the matter...not enough phoney Obamacare killed my dog and gave me cancer stories floating around today? It was the Republican party that was the embarrassement concerning Nelson Mandela.

Not to mention I just saw a news clip about the memorial & it looked to me like it was one big party celebrating Mandela. Not a somber affair in the least.

You're right, all the teenagers are doing it. Just that, in this case it is a supposedly a mature man who hold an important position, even though he is really just an American hating gutter slime...

You can almost hear him lying....err....saying to Michelle: "If I like my seat, I can keep my seat. Period."

That is how it has been described since the day he died.
