New Obama flirty photos shame Michelle

Not since "photos described as "flirty" blazed across the globe of President Obama and Thailand's stunning Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra," near last Christmas, has Obama raised so many knowing eyebrows back home. In these new photos, taken Dec. 10, 2013, Michelle was forced to sit stoically, glowering and ignored, while her husband lavished attention on Denmark's Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

One example is a photo featuring U.S. President Barack Obama planting a warm goodbye kiss on the shapely Helle before leaving the official memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. Look closely to see First Lady Michelle Obama deep in the shadows of their embrace.

Through a progression set of photos, there was enough room between Obama and Michelle to seat another person. With the exception of one sideways look that would kill, Michelle stared straight ahead with her jaw visibly clenched.

According to the New York Daily News, Obama merely committed a "funeral faux paux," by taking a "selfie." If "a photo speaks a thousand words," the full series of photos speak a million.

Last year, the Hollywood crowd immediately rallied to Michelle. Samuel Jackson declared her to be "amazingly smart and together," called her "Superwoman," and suggested Michelle was presidential material. Where is Jackson when Michelle needs him?

More than 60 heads of state made the trip to South Africa to attend a week of events commemorating the life of former South African President Nelson Mandela, who passed away on the evening of December 5, 2013 at his home in Houghton at the age of 95.
