Sheesh! Talk about being blind to really bad optics.
You have to wonder why the Obama administration allowed the release of two Reuters photos of Obama laughing during yesterday's border crises meeting which you can see after the jump. From the reaction of the Democrat Underground and the Daily Kos, it is easy to see why. Because Texas Governor Rick Perry looked unamused as Barack Obama was laughing, they (and probably the adminstration) thought his discomfort was just hilarious while overlooking the fact that Obama was acting as if he didn't take the situation seriously. Although the DUers and Kossacks were generally chuckling over the photos, at least one Kossack was well aware of what the real public reaction would be. First let us watch the DUers mock Rick Perry for not finding laughter amusing during the border crises meeting.
