Obama Greets Putin with 'Historic Death Stare' at G-20 Summit

by Debra Heine 5 Sep 2013, 8:27 AM PDT

The intense moment was posted on Twitter by CNBC's Eamon Javers and described by Brett Logiurato of Business Insider as the president giving  Putin "a significantly intense death stare upon their meeting at the G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia."

National Journal's Matt Vasilogambros was less dramatic in his description of the 15 second meeting between the two leaders, calling it "awkward and friendly", and surmising that as  Obama walked away, Putin thought to himself, "Reset, my ass."

A good shot of Putin's expression is here.

This is complete bullshit.   Watch the video.  No death stares.

Anybody can look at a video stream and select specific frames to present an unflattering image....or a phoney contextual one.

Not at all.  I actually laugh at it.

This is from CNBC.....enough said.

The problem is that it's a blatant attempt to form an opinion....on false pretenses.   I get enough of that already.

Here's how NBC played it for their Beloved.

Quote
President Barack Obama was intent on getting the upper hand as he greeted Russia's Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit on Thursday, according to body language experts who watched the frosty exchange.

From a jacket-buttoning pause to a hard-pumping handshake, Obama displayed tell-tale signs of dominance after he alit from a limo in front of St. Petersburg's Konstantin Palace, where Putin waited to meet him, communication experts said...

There's no real warmth," said Erik Bucy, a professor at Texas Tech University who researches non-verbal communication.

"It looks like Putin's basically a hotel greeter at a five-star establishment and Obama is coming out of the limo as the important invited guest he's not particularly thrilled to see."

President Barack Obama shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin during arrivals for the G-20 summit at the Konstantin Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013.

Patti Wood, author of "Success Signals: Body Language in Business," made a similar analogy.

"It was very odd. Obama is treating him like he was greeting a doorman," she said.

She noted the significance Obama buttoning his suit jacket after exiting the limo.

"That’s another way men show power," she said. "It says, 'I know the attention is on me' and it’s a little bit rude to do that. It's grabbing the power for yourself."

Tonya Reiman, who has written three books on body language, said Obama extended his hand at least two seconds before Putin did.

"This is a show of power," she said. "In addition, he leans in toward Putin with his upper body, placing himself slightly into Putin's personal zone. Notice Putin pulls back ever so slightly, which indicates that Obama has the upper hand."


Obama showed his dominance. Can you imagine how intimidated Putin must have felt?.  :silly:

Just a note: this is the same article DC Patriot cited above though he chose not to quote these amusing passages.

This so called 'power of show' reminds me of algore's 'power of show' in the debate with George Bush when he walked up on him. That was a laugher also

It would take about 15 seconds for Putin to wring his scrawny, sissy neck.

Must admit...for a moment I fantasized that Putin suddenly squeezed down on his hand real hard....and as Obama's knees bent...he headbutted him and broke his nose.


....all the time wondering how long it would take for his protective detail to intervene.    :laugh:

Now that would be kinda fun to watch, wouldn't it?

This is the guy whose pants crease made such an impression on David Brooks...that on that alone guaranteed he was going to be POTUS.

Somehow I don't think we would have fared any better with crazy McCain.

Oh, my........of COURSE we would have been better off with McCain, on a hundred different levels.

None of his faults compare with the treason and hatred of all things moral and true that make up the nature of the pro-Muslim, America-hating narcissist punk, Obama.

I don't what to think anymore. Obama is a disaster, but crazy McCain might be blowing up the world by now. We have GOT to get a third party. The two we have are both equally bad.
