RUSH: The UK Daily Mail: “In a stunning dismissal of a head of state with whom he has to work on pressing international matters, President Barack Obama referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday with language more descriptive of a schoolboy than the leader of 143 million people. Asked whether he can get ‘big stuff done without having a good personal relationship with Putin,’ Obama responded by noting that ‘I know the press likes to focus on body language and he’s got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the classroom.'”
That’s what Obama said about Putin. Now, remember, it was Obama who asked Dmitry Medvedev to tell Putin to be cool, that after Obama won reelection in 2012 he’d have a lot more flexibility. There’s been a falling out between these two statists. It just doesn’t seem to work out. Now, what is this reference to a slouch, looking like the bored kid in the classroom. You know what that is? He’s talking about “Dufnering.” Jason Dufner, who won the PGA Championship yesterday, went into a school as part of a PR visit, and they snapped a picture of him sitting on the floor up against the wall with his arms down to his side just totally slouching. It has become a YouTube and Internet rage.
