The Thug-in-Chief's "Evil Eye"
...Staffers have joked about the menacing glance, which comes when the president meets with world leaders who are not aligned with his progressive view.
White House photographers have captured the "evil eye" in recent weeks, during sessions with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Colombia's Alvaro Uribev.
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi got hit with the commander's malocchio last week in the Oval office.
And at least one White House reporter has been on the receiving end of the daggers during a press conference.
It's a look I usually see from street thugs, perhaps those on the subway who didn't like me telling them to watch their language around women or children, or those who simply think they are so tough that their cliched bad-ass scowl will earn them automatic street cred.
To world leaders who encounter Barack Obama's immature thuggery, I recommend a stare-down, not a back-down. Like the pathetic street punks he models himself after, Obama is weak, cowardly, and afraid of conflcit, and will wilt before a tough and reasoned response.
Did I mention how proud I was to have a president who comports himself thusly?
