You haven't seen "no-drama" Obama get upset very often in the last four years, but when he does, it's pretty distinctive. His eyes narrow and fix on an individual. His hand goes to his chin and he becomes very, very still. It's a glare that could fairly be described as withering.

Only a couple of leaders have earned a Presidential glare, which seems reserved for those who contradict Obama in public settings. The first was Rep. Paul Ryan who gave an impromptu rundown of budget gimmicks in the health care bill during a February 2010 summit. Obama did not look at all pleased and broke the protocol of the meeting to offer a several minute long response to Ryan.

The second leader to garner a glare was Benjamin Netanyahu during a joint press conference last May. Netanyahu's talk seemed to start well with Obama nodding agreement. Then the issue of '67 borders came up and Obama's face changed. NPR described the meeting with Netanyahu as "frosty" adding, "The body language was tense. President Obama, his hand resting on his chin, watched Netanyahu intently as he laid down his red lines on key issues."

The perceived split with Netanyahu was widely reported at the time. The one with Ryan was only noted by conservative bloggers. With Ryan now on the Romney ticket, the President's feelings toward the Wisconsin Representative, who has dogged him on budget issues for years, may turn out to be just as important.

Yeah, stress someone out and you'll get to see what they are really made of....:biggrin-new:

Golf does that to folks, sometimes..

But Ryan's presentation at the Obamacare meeting wasn't really impromptu, was it? And I have never seem Obama's response to it. I can find where he started to respond, but it's always cut off.

You haven't seen "no-Brain" Obama get upset very often in the last four years, but when he does, it's pretty distinctive, and comical given that a glare by this effete, pencil-necked geek never intimidates real men. His eyes narrow and fix on an individual. His hand goes to his chin and he becomes very, very still. It's a glare that could fairly be described as DUmbstruck and clueless as to what is being said.


Only a couple of leaders have earned a Presidential glare, which seems reserved for those who dare to contradict Pharaoh Obama in public settings. The first was Rep. Paul Ryan who gave an impromptu rundown of budget gimmicks in the health care bill during a February 2010 summit. Obama did not look at all pleased and broke the protocol of the meeting to offer a several minute long response to Ryan, which had nothing to do with a reasoned response and everything to do with blind ideological idiocy.:friendly_wink:
