Creepy… it’s almost as if he saw the last time I tried to dance at a wedding reception and is mocking me (it takes about 55 seconds for the fun to begin):

His teleprompter would have been out there with him to show him how it’s done if it weren’t for the fact that TOTUS was busy being set up on India’s Parliament — the first time ever a teleprompter has been used there (Obama’s all about “firsts”).

The prez really knows how to engage his Indian hosts:


Also, from ABC’s Jake Tapper:

There was an odd little moment with Spice Jet founder Bhupendra Kansagra when President Obama spoke to CEOs Saturday in Mumbai.

MR. KANSAGRA: Thank you. Welcome, Mr. President, to India. As a fellow Kenyan, I’m very proud to see that you have made –

THE PRESIDENT: Made something of myself. (Laughter.)

MR. KANSAGRA: — India as the focus of your drive for exports out of the U.S.

And like his ABC collegue George Stephanopoulos, Tapper felt the need to throw himself on the grenade for Obama by serving as a sort of “birther buffer”:

Obviously the president is not a Kenyan. One supposes Mr. Kansagra meant “of Kenyan ancestry” or something.


Obamadance Update, from Sad Hill News — another caption might be “What India sees” vs. “What America sees”:

    “birther buffer” – Sweet!

    As this video clearly shows, Obama is a white man. Everyone knows black men have rhythm (oops, was that racist?), and he obviously does not.

    One of my fave comments at W/Z was, "Obama`s not a Kenyan, he`s a Keynesian!" LOL ! There`s tons of birther and inelligebility evidence out there !

    The first thing I thought of about our Dancer-in Chief, his white half is dominant on the dance floor ! (phrased to prevent a racist charge)

    On the "fellow Kenyan" remark; he didn`t bother to dispute it ! Curious !

    Now Doug – please tell me, as a fellow Michigander, you have not gotten up and done the "chicken dance" at a wedding?!?! Me thinks you are fibbing!

  5. Marshall_Will on November 8th, 2010 2:32 pm

    "Beer! Helping White Guys Dance Since 1855!"

    Bumper sticker as seen on daughter's HS BF's pickup truck. Hey this is Oregon.

    Yeah, The Fed is busily printing 'another' $600 bil. and we're being 'treated' to this. Doug, depending how long you've been married, your wife learns not to ask you to dance until the bar has been open for at -least- an hour! They don't need the embarrassment any more than we do.

  6. TheZooKeeper on November 8th, 2010 2:42 pm

    Doug, just think of the MSM as O's journalistic secret service.

  7. SignPainterGuy on November 8th, 2010 2:48 pm

    AKA, mama !

  8. SignPainterGuy on November 8th, 2010 2:54 pm

    That sticker can be seen here as well and no doubt coined by someone who knows and who came into this world "natural lube deleted" !

  9. Adam on November 8th, 2010 2:59 pm

    Hmmm…he makes Elaine's dancing on Seinfeld seem fluid and rhythmic

  10. Linda on November 8th, 2010 3:05 pm

    As I said on Twitter, "Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Obama dances while America struggles. How apropos."

    Yee-haw, crank up that printing press, Fed. Another $600 bil that we can't afford. What are they thinking? (Or not, as it appears) I certainly hope Congress does something about the Fed.

  11. Marshall_Will on November 8th, 2010 3:08 pm


    The important thing, is that you 'do' dance w/ your wife! ( She spent a pauper's fortune on that dress, hair and nails and DAMN IT you -are- going to dance w/ her! )

    As we've long established, there's no coincidences in Nobama-land and here's what 'I' see. Feigned awkwardness. Plain & Simple. They both danced the night away w/ perfect eloquence the night of The One's inauguration, didn't they?

    With -billions- living below the poverty line, the Indian gov't has more sense than to be seen perpetually on the greens, lavishing in leisure and being "Vacationers-In-Chief"… was it? So they feel forced to project that with as hard as they've been 'working' on the Economy, they simply haven't had TIME for "idle pursuits".

    We ALL do it! When you take a client for drinks, you balk, hem & haw, pore of the wine list ( like you've never 'seen' one before ) Yeah right! Bottom line, Feigned Awkwardness works, until it doesn't!

  12. Doug on November 8th, 2010 3:37 pm

    I do kind of remember doing that once… maybe even twice. I retired from doing the "Shout" dance 20 years ago though.

  13. Joe Redfield on November 8th, 2010 5:34 pm

    This will probably set back US-Indian relations by a few decades. Too bad for Barry the Secret Service is not tasked with preventing the Prez from embarassing himself in public.

  14. Marshall_Will on November 8th, 2010 6:13 pm


    "Yee-haw" is right, the only question that remains is, what will they run out of 'first' ( paper or ink!? ) In MM's "All or nothing: Stop The Obama Tax Increases" commenter Arizona Neanderthal opines;

    "And unemployment will stay in this period of uncertainty, uncertainty the Left seems to relish". Pretty sharp for a neanderthal huh? Of course "Weaker Pelosi", Olby's 86'ing etc. "The Ousting" last Tuesday all… just become yet another "crisis" to exploit.

    *A handsome bounty paid to any poster w/ footage of Doug dancing! Oh and I missed the comments, Blog Party anyone!?

  15. Marshall_Will on November 8th, 2010 6:14 pm

    Joe Redfield,

    ( You're entirely too generous Sir! ) LOL

  16. patsy on November 8th, 2010 6:29 pm

    it only makes sense that Obama must court a new 'audience'. i don't have any difficulty imagining him seeking leadership in some other country – especially one that is distinctly non-western.

    mark my words. obama wants to be king, and THAT is what he is so bummed about. in the West, even someone anointed king cannot 'rule'. he'll probably choose kenya first, but indonesia would be a close second.

  17. Linda on November 8th, 2010 6:39 pm

    Why is it so difficult for the Liberals for understand, cutting taxes spurs economic growth, and increases revenues to government entities. If they would quit blowing through it with spending, there would be a surplus.

    JFK understood that, but wasn't in office long enough for anything to come to fruition. Clinton seemed to grasp the concept, albeit begrudgingly.

    This period of uncertainty has been caused by the policies of the last 2 years about the future. Hopefully, the new Congress can provide some stability for the future.

    You can't give everything to everybody forever, without some consequences. One only has to look to Greece and the EU to see that.

  18. SignPainterGuy on November 8th, 2010 7:23 pm

    Doug, love the update photo comparison of perspectives ! "Somewhere, USA" – Did Zero choose the right Stevie Wonder lyrics this time ?

  19. OBAMA_IS_A_NAZI on November 8th, 2010 7:51 pm

    Michelle is really into that Aunt Esther look, isn't she?
    She almost makes Eleanor Roosevelt look good by comparison.

  20. SignPainterGuy on November 8th, 2010 8:34 pm

    The bottom line for this bunch who now control the dems is "Power and Control" ! Economic growth spurs entrepreneurial spirit, independence…….can`t have that !

  21. OK_Loyalist on November 8th, 2010 11:31 pm

    Lock up your lampshades !!! :D

  22. Clu Seatoe on November 9th, 2010 12:06 am

    Hey, Tapper, here’s an idea that might go over big in your business: go ask him what he meant.
    And if its so obvious to you, why’d you have to finish your sentence with: “…or something”?
    What? The first daughters weren’t invited to the dances with the other kids?
    We never have this much fun with mom and dad. Why won’t you guys dance with us like that?

  23. Almita on November 9th, 2010 5:05 pm

    Enjoy yourself, President Obama.
    At our expense.

  24. @almita_palomita on November 9th, 2010 5:09 pm

    (repeating comment for twitter)
    Sorry, guys, this one grieved me. We here in America are suffering. I understand a diplomatic trip. I understand the need to be friendly. I also understand this.
    I have never seen a diplomat from China, Russia, Korea, India, really, anywhere – dancing with a bunch of our American Children. Praying with our American School children, etc….

    I am not trying to be too critical, I am just saying, there is business and there are state dinners, and then they leave. Mission Accomplished.
    Enjoy yourself, President Obama.
    At our expense.
    I am grieved to tears for America's people. Heartbroken.
