Obama Shakes Finger at PM Harper

After the carefully crafted optics of Obama bowing to certain foreign leaders, I can't believe that this was an accident:

The Anchoress notes:

I get the impression that Obama and his crew think these sorts of pictures make him look good. Heís sticking it to the man, or something.

The look on Harperís face, I canít read. Heís either cowed or repressing his own anger. He appears to be looking directly at Obamaís finger. He is making a fist. Anyone want to supply a caption?

I miss the swaggering cowboy. He may have been tongue-tied; he may have screwed up with an errant backrub, but he didnít bow to royalty, he didnít give embarrassing gifts to allies, he didnít show the Dalai Lama the back door. He never said to a visiting ally (paraphrased) ďIím gonna go have dinner with Laura, and if you decide to obey me, Iíll be around.Ē

He didnít shove his finger in the face of another countryís prime minister.

Yup.

I don't think President Obama set out to be rude to Prime Minister Harper. It's just that he couldn't be bothered to be polite and it didn't occur to him that Harper, the leader of a close U.S. ally, is someone he should be polite to.
