This San Francisco Chronicle story nicely summarizes the negative reaction to the impromptu shoulder massage President Bush gave German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Her facial expression tells me she loved it!
My favorite quote about Bush's actions comes from Dialog International, which bills itself as an opinion Web site on German-American politics and culture: "When he is away from his script and his handlers, his true lack of intelligence and emotional maturity surfaces for all to see."
At least he wasn't talking with his mouth full this time.
