Why Didn’t They Shake His Hand?

President Obama was recently over in Russia, and while there and visiting Russian leaders, the following awkward situation happened:

This is a disgraceful way to treat the head of a foreign country.  The way that the shake hands with the Russian president behind him shows that they were doing this on purpose.

I don’t know that I’ve read a reason why, but this should have been something that was in our newscasts, because he’s represents us.

I agree with what Leticia said in comments below, it’s not a snub, it’s an introduction.  It’s a good example of seeing what you want to see (and believing sources!) rather than being critical yourself.

    Okay, call me a mean person, but I think it was funny. He dissed the Prime Minister of Britain, so let him get a taste of his own medicine.

    You know what I must retract my previous comments. I don’t think Obama was being snubbed. If you look closely it seems like he is introducing.

      I think you’re right– that really is what it looks like they are doing. I adjusted the post.
