Is Obama the Most ‘Classless’ POTUS in History?
His behavior is not something we would tolerate from our children.
At the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, President Obama was seated beside Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British P.M. David Cameron. At one point the three world leaders decided it was a good time to take a photo of themselves (the infamous funeral selfie). First lady Michelle Obama was either not invited or chose not to participate. Either way, she did not look the least bit pleased at her husband's hijinks and the internet has exploded with laughter.
I for one am not laughing.
When we send our leaders to pay respects, we naturally expect them to have a sense of decorum, of reverence. None was displayed from our Chief representative. With his approval rating at an all time low and allegations of criminal conduct from the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious and the disaster that is Obamacare, frivolity should have been the last thing we needed to see from Obama, but right on cue, it's exactly what we got.

Things only seemed to go downhill from there for the president, as eventually Michelle had inserted herself between him and his pals:

There maybe some see nothing wrong with the President's behavior and I would call them, 'enablers' or worse the reason we have the country we do today. When the President doesn't have respect for his office, why should hard working Americans?
