‘Barack, and to the Left’: GMA Analyzes Obama ‘Butt Glance’ Tape

posted at 8:43 am on July 10, 2009 by

Now that the Michael Jackson story is waning, the media can focus on the important stories and help answer the tough questions: “Was Obama looking at that 16 year old girl’s butt?”

Drudge featured a photo, that appears to show Obama going all Bill Clinton in Rome. However, it’s a still picture, but a video exists that the media is now tearing apart frame by frame.

GMA analyzed the tape as if it were a Zapruder film of bootyliciousness and concluded that the video clearly shows Obama wasn’t checking out the girl’s butt (they also don’t think he’s a socialist, so take that for what it’s worth) — however, the experienced male glancer will tell you that you always have a “plan B” in case you’re caught looking and need to make it like you were focusing on something else, so who knows.

It doesn’t appear that Obama was overtly checking the girl out (if he was, at least he didn’t make it quite as obvious as Bill Clinton) — Sarkozy, however, is another story altogether:

At least we’ve found one way to get these G8 guys to move to the right.

I feel sorry for the girl. She wants to do something serious in her life and she is now famous for having her butt ogled.

From Jake Tapper:

My stance is i cant tell from the video but i think a lot of people yacking about it today are hypocrites

Does this mean some day, we’ll see a wedding party photo of Tapper’s daughter and he will be caught leaning over ogling a 16 year old bride’s maid’s ass?
