Video: The obligatory “Michelle Obama rolls her eyes at Boehner” clip

posted at 6:01 pm on January 21, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Sooper Mexican, you can tell the left’s feeling good today by the fact that there are liberal publications trumpeting this too. I kind of like it just because it’s true to the real spirit of the moment. For all the forced chumminess between the two sides, that eyeroll is a perfect summation of the Lightbringer’s approach to the GOP since, oh, at least last January. While he was up there today intoning about the glory of America and how the only way to stay true to the Founders’ vision is to subvert it while paying lip service to it, Mona Charen was keeping her eye on the ball:

We interrupt this orgy of Obama worship to recall that his campaign huddled early in 2012 and reflected that they could not run on his first-term record. Accordingly, the strategy was “Kill Romney.” Congratulations. That what we’re celebrating today.

They killed him and now the new task is to kill the GOP by implying that they want to starve children or, at least, let them be murdered occasionally in the name of protecting gun rights. Why clink glasses under those circumstances? If I found myself seated next to Harry Reid or Pelosi and forced to make small talk, I’d turn into Jim Carrey at the hotel bar in “Dumb and Dumber” within five minutes. FLOTUS’s reaction is the first and probably last honest moment you’ll see from either side all day. It beats listening to a phony lecture about “name-calling” from President Above The Fray, no?

Why is Michelle eye-rolling at the Boehners? If anyone should eye-rolling should it be Boehner? Obama has demagogued Boehner plenty for him to be pissed.

I don’t know how forced the chumminess was, but so long as we’re nitpicking on table etiquette, you don’t pat a woman’s (any woman’s) arm backhanded as Boehner did there unless you’re either comfortably familiar with her or a little woozy. If you want to be abstemiously decorous you either lightly touch the top of her forearm or you don’t touch anything at all. And if you really are woozy you probably shouldn’t say anything either.

I know Dubya put the moves on Merkel and of course Joe Biden likes him his biker chicks, but something tells me Boehner knows better.

Boehner should not have touched her. If one is being boorishly ignored, a boorish physical gesture is not the response. He should have turned and spoken to his wife.

Mrs. Obama should not have thrown her elbow upon the table like a prison inmate guarding his tray. And smaller, less frequent bites of food might be advisable- especially if one is prone to gesticulating with head feints like a horse.

And, finally, while it is permissible to wipe with a napkin, briefly, at ones nose while seated at the dinner table, it is not acceptable to bare-handed pick, dig, or even rub. Our President disappoints all along the scale of achievement.

Our political class has no class at all. Is anyone surprised?
