More Radiance from AP’s Charles Dharapak: It’s Not Easy Being Obama

How talented is AP’s Charles Dharapak? Talented enough to turn the threat of rain during a Rose Garden presser with the Turkish President into a portrait of dismay, the second-term President still braving D.C.’s political elements in a battle for relevance. How exactly the nervous glance from the Marine breaking role, or Obama guiding his elbow informs the picture I leave to you.

Anyway, those were the days (1, 2).

UPDATE:

And it keeps getting better: The Daily Caller Accuses Obama Of Breaching ‘Marine Umbrella Protocol’
