The POTUS Calling the Kettle ...?

President Bush and Convicted Lobbyist Jack Abramoff
Mission Accomplished
The President expressing himself nonverbally

Nothing degrading to "the status of the office" of the presidency in these photos.

In a wide-ranging news conference at the White House where he touched on several major issues of the presidential campaign, Bush appeared especially animated when asked about meeting the leaders of Cuba and Iran without preconditions, an idea that has been an element of Barack Obama's foreign policy agenda.

"Sitting down at the table, having your picture taken with a tyrant such as Raul Castro, for example, lends the status of the office and the status of our country to him," Bush said. "He gains a lot from it by saying, 'Look at me, I'm now recognized by the president of the United States.' "
