This is the image that is causing an uproar all over the Internet, and I am in a strange position indeed.
I disagree with about 99.9999% of Barack Obama's agenda, but I have to step into the debate and defend him at this juncture. I've seen a video of what is now being called 'The O-gle' and it looks to me as though Mr. Obama looked down at the steps and managed to take in a rather nice view of a 17-year-old's rump.
The possibilities here are:
1. Barack saw the woman's behind and was just more deft in his ogling than say, French President Sarkozy, who appears ready to jump over Barack's shoulder in order to get a better viewing angle.
2. Barack was simply looking down and backwards at that particular moment, and this teenager's derriere was just 'there'.
Honestly, it is not polite to ogle a woman -- don't let your eyes bug out. But really, as men, we sometimes cannot help but look. Also, this is the first real evidence that our president is a vertebrate at all, so I say let the guy look. There's so many more important things to critique about America's Prime Minister. This probably comes as a relief from all the people asking him how he managed to calculate the number of jobs he 'saved or created' last month.
