Maybe he's just a stickler for grammar.

There's a guy whose job it is to just follow the President around all day taking pictures, so there's no real need to take selfies.

// DNTRFA or care if it had nothing to do with the headline

It's grammatically and syntactically fine, you jackass.  It's etymologically questionable at best.

I guess you could be right. But I don't know. Let me go look it up.

But first, let me take a selfie.

It's funny, there are about three photos of me between the ages of 16 and 26.  None of them taken by me.  Oh, how we suffered from lack of exposure.

In the annals of bad Presidential behavior, no one made a big deal when President Bush tried to give Angela Merkel a public massage. All Obama did here was politely decline a request.
 
2014-04-27 07:28:56 AM
Sorry, but "having a selfie" still sounds to me like a euphemism for something sexual. So a thirteen-year-old girl wanting to have a selfie with the President... we're entering Monica Lewinsky territory, only much, much worse.
 
2014-04-27 07:32:17 AM
And hopefully the rest of the country follows suit.

/I'll support any candidate in 2016 if they ban selfies

He should ban people that use that word.

It's perfectly all right for Obama to refuse to take any more selfies.  I agree with other posters here that they should be banned.  And, after the look Michelle gave Barack when he and the PMs of Denmark and England took one at the Mandela memorial, he probably doesn't dare.
 
2014-04-27 07:58:08 AM
Thanks Obama!

Was she trying to document who her baby daddy was? You know for future child support.

that was alright though, eh?

the one with Ortiz was alright - except when it was a Samsung plug, amirite?

so, it's okay, except when someone else gets better publicity, amirite?

how is a 13 year old going to get more publicity than 0bama?

You're right.

For example, if President Clinton had had a selfie, we never would have heard of Monic Lewinsky.

That Samsung effectively went full National Enquirer and tried to imply the POTUS endorsed their phones is why this happened now.

Nothing really, but some people go overboard. There's one person I know who posts who posts *at least* one per day. Sometimes, it's more.

It's almost as if the President thought it may be a bad idea to leave himself open in a public place next to a sign that clearly telegraphs an opening for a sniper in a country that is situated very closely to a hostile nation that is technically still in a civil war that we have been engaging in with open hostilities lately.

Or its possible that little girl is a sleeper agent and Obama doesn't trust her. Just look at her... she's clearly foreign.

Well the loyal opposition sure gets mileage out of them.

Do I have to ask myself if I can have a selfie, or do I just go for it?  What if I'm drunk?

I, for one, am glad Obama has finally realized that a certain dignity is expected from the President of the United States of America. It's also a good sign we haven't seen a cocaine-fueled '57 states' statement in a while.
