The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer

The Administration’s Ministry of Information was in overdrive reporting on the latest G20 Summit held in St. Petersburg, Russia last week.

A throng of photographers lined up like vultures to capture the shot of The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer being greeted by Russia’s Vladimir Putin at Konstantin Palace.

The body language “experts” hired by NBC prattled on making fools of themselves in a flagrant attempt to have Obama snatch a public relations victory from the jaws of an unmitigated defeat.

Putin greeted Obama with a thin smile, a vivid indicator of the strains between them.

"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."

The leaders arrived one after another in Russian-assembled Series 7 BMWs that were provided by the hosts. Putin laughed with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and spent more time talking to German Chancellor Angela Merkel than to any of his other guests. Obama was the last to appear—in his own Cadillac.

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.

Later that evening a decadent ball with lavish displays greeted the world leaders.  The president was nowhere to be seen and only arrived at the palace a good half-hour after the rest of the group.

Women dressed in elaborate Marie Antoinette-style costumes evoked a “Let Them Eat Cake” display of luxury that stood in stark contrast to the topics of poverty and war.

The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was also photographed appearing “uncomfortable” as he stood beside a gilded statue at the venue.

The New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz jested in his column, The News Reshuffled:
Hopes for a positive G20 summit crumbled today as President Obama blurted to Russia’s Vladimir Putin at a joint press appearance, “Everyone here thinks you’re a jackass.” 
The press corps appeared stunned by the uncharacteristic outburst from Mr. Obama, who then unleashed a ten-minute tirade at the stone-faced Russian President. 
“Look, I’m not just talking about Snowden and Syria,” Mr. Obama said. “What about Pussy Riot? What about your anti-gay laws? Total jackass moves, my friend.” 
As Mr. Putin narrowed his eyes in frosty silence, Mr. Obama seemed to warm to his topic. 
“If you think I’m the only one who feels this way, you’re kidding yourself,” Mr. Obama said, jabbing his finger in the direction of the Russian President’s face. “Ask Angela Merkel. Ask David Cameron. Ask the Turkish guy. Every last one of them thinks you’re a dick.” 
Shortly after Mr. Obama’s volcanic performance, Mr. Putin released a terse official statement, reading, “I should be afraid of this skinny man? I wrestle bears.”

Iowahawk had two thoughts about Borowitz’ brand of humor on the subject:
