Skip to comments.NBC: The Big Chill: A dominant Obama meets a cool Putin at G20 (BARF!)
Posted on 09/05/2013 12:15:09 PM PDT by maggief
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 was no outright hostility, but the chill between the two world leaders at loggerheads over NSA leaker Edward Snowden and a strike against Syria was evident in clenched-jaw smiles and lack of eye-contact and touching, the experts said.

The lamestreamers are worried that their boy looks like a wuss!
Is this from the Onion?
By what demented and delusional measure could that limp-wristed, pencil-necked pansy ever be considered dominant? Absolutely pathetic.
Petulant little punk mf’r. strutting and preening, like his homies in the baggie pants on the basketball court.
Pure show, no class, no integrity
Obungler couldn’t “dominate” Tiny Tim, let alone a hardcore KGB operative like Vlad the Impaler.
Obama can practice his “dominant look” all he wants, but anyone with half a brain cell knows Putin could flatten him in an instant.
There’s NBC, as always, and then there’s the truth.
OBAMA is a wimp...
He does play those dominance games like grabbing another’s elbow when shaking hands, and so on, without ever having actual dominance. Too complicated for MSM to read.
“Obama displayed tell-tale signs of dominance after he alit from a limo...”
NBC never misses a chance to make themselves look like fools.
Like Thatcher said, if you have to say you are a lady, you aren’t one.
Barack Obama, the first gay, black, muslim, woman president..
Also notice Putin is fixed on his center mass, O dumbo is facing the fawning crowd which is not there
That’s because Obama has this tendency to bow... he was probably in the midst of stopping himself.
Put them in a room for 7 minutes and lock it from the outside. Let’s analyze the body language after that.
a “dominant” bammey boy?....hardly....he looks more like a fruit loop commercial...
I don’t watch NBC. When I want factual reporting, I go to the foreign press, not Amerikan Pravda. I doubt they will spin this story the same way.
World dominance is now determined by a handshake?
Why not just have an arm wrestling contest. BTW, Russia is sending
more warships to Syria.
I swear, Obama could walk around with a small placard which says “I’m being dominant right now” and MSNBC would simply report that Obama was showing constant signs of dominating the proceedings.
Putin is being polite, and professional... any doubts he has a plan too?
Dominant? Yeah, riiight.
Putin has continually made O look like an azz for months.
I’ll bet O showed up a half hour late today to try to “play dominant”.
Michelle was there?
They actually dug up body language “experts” to say Obama won? Obama is an international laughingstock but the US news media still flies cover for him.
When Obama has to pish, he uses tweezers, while Putin has to hire a crane.
What a ludicrous attempt to spin the Obama weak pansy image he has, in order to make Obama into a “war lord.” In 2008 Obama went to Cairo and apologized to the world for so called US neo-colonial militarism. Now Obama wants to be what he apologized for?
Something does not add up.
I guess Obama needs a distraction from his many disasters, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Obamacare Debacles etc.
Obama is done for. Congress will never vote for Obamas military adventure, especially after what Obama did to Libya and Egypt.
And one of the Korean Kims scored like a 39 on a round of golf. Riiiiiiiiight.
Why doesn’t Obama remind Putin that, now that the election is over, he has more flexibility?
He doesn't have to be dominant. According to the article, he only has to "display" dominance.
The perception is more important to NBC. In Obama's mind, he's acting dominant so he is dominant.
They probably had this story all typed up even before the meeting took place.
I noticed after the hand shake, obama started to put his hand on Putin’s back, but took it down like he was about to touch a hot stove.
I'm not sure what they saw, but the clip I saw showed Hussein being anything but dominate.
To clarify though, I'd really like to see Putin kick 0bama's wussy ass - as proof that Hussein is a certified pansy-ass!
Obama probably canceled the planned meeting with the Russian poofters because they would have made it so obvious what a wussy boy he is.
Makes you miss a true statesman.
HEADLINE news on their website.
There’s the alpha male who struts and yells. He let’s everyone knows how tough he is. He tries to impose and dominate others and buffalo them. A real cock strutter. Then there are alpha males who stand back and don’t flaunt. They’ll play it cool and the moment the opportunity presents itself, they’ll take down the other alpha nice and clean. They don’t have to act tough... they ARE tough.
Obama is an empty suit. His threats are meaningless. He isn’t a leader. He’s a politician who likes to act the part. For all the problems with Putin, he is a much more effective leader and he knows how to fight. Obama can’t get over on Putin. And it’s sad that we have an American president like him.
barie: "You don't really buy that gay monkey with a grenade thing do ya? Do yah?
Look, you like tandori chicken, I like tandori chicken, right? So help a brother out, wouldja.
Yeah, I saw that. they left out the butt-dragging slouch toward the closest door. And he just couldn’t quite turn for the camera-—I suspected Putin was crushing his paw.
In body language, putting ones hand on another’s back means you believe you are in charge.
He probably thought twice about it because Putin probably knows that and Vlad might have chopped him to the mat. LOL
Dominant in terms of the butch one in the homosexual relationship he was seeking in Russia. Unfortunately, his activist friends had other plans.
