From the White House Flickr Page...

Glenn Reynolds asks us to analyze the body language:

Click over to Glenn's for a close-up of Obama's mug. As Glenn notes, "I don’t think Obama’s facial expression is just a fluke ..."

Then check
Ann Althouse:

People who like Obama are blinded to the way other people see him. This picture strongly says cool to people who love him, but it doesn't read that way to others... including the many, many people who don't even want a cool President.
I already know Obama's a corrupt arrogant prick. What's interesting to me is the possibility that Vice President Biden, hands in pocket, could actually be a cooler corrupt arrogant prick.

I'm also reminded of how deeply I miss George W. Bush.


Added: From Ed Morrissey:
I’m sure that all is well between the two, and that this is just a fluke of photography. After all, what has Biden done that could have irritated his boss? Er, for that matter, what exactly has Biden done at all? Could Obama be annoyed that Biden has yet to do anything for Obama, or is the President just “messing with Joe”?

as a soccer player I was always taught to 'play the ball and not the man' but I have to agree with you on this one. There is a certain arrogance there ....

"American Power" is home to quite possibly the dumbest, most ill-informed cretins on the web. A veritable stable of stupidity.

Congrats, assholes; you are a bunch of fucking sewer rats and each mindless utterance just keeps covering you in stinking shit.

And to the mouth-breathing yutz who is reminded just how much he misses George W. Bush: how can you miss him, asshole? His disasterous policies live on and on and on and on....

Here is a nice picture for you of your dear leader. (ht Bunkerville)

It quite aptly illustrates his, ahhhhh . . . "other side" don't you think?
