It sure looks like it, but likely wasn’t (see update).
Check out this footage, taken last week of Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev making their way down a receiving line:
The media sure didn’t hype this like they hyped the Bush snub that wasn’t, last November. Remember how the “pathetic” and “like the most unpopular kid in high school” Bush, was supposedly snubbed at the G-20?:
The difference in the two videos, is of course the fact that Bush didn’t put his hand out to shake with anyone, because he had already shaken everybody’s hand. Obama may have already shook hands with the people in the line, too, but if he was putting his hand out to shake, again, they were undeniably ignoring him. You would think that they would shake it again for appearance sake. If they hadn’t already shook hands, then wow —-awkward!
The reset button must be defective, or something.
Geoff comes up with the most plausible explanation…he’s introducing Medvedev to the people in the line, who were perhaps his staff or embassy folks.
