Book shows 'cranky' Obama who refused to take pics with troops

Rick Moran
There's another Obama book out - one you probably won't hear much about. It's called "Operators" by Michael Hastings and it evidently contains a lot of stuff like this.

Obama on a visit to Baghdad:

After the talk, out of earshot from the soldiers and diplomats, he starts to complain. He starts to act very un-Obamalike, according to a U.S. embassy official who helped organize the trip in Baghdad.

He's asked to go out to take a few more pictures with soldiers and embassy staffers. He's asked to sign copies of his book. "He didn't want to take pictures with any more soldiers; he was complaining about it," a State Department official tells me. "Look, I was excited to meet him. I wanted to like him. Let's just say the scales fell from my eyes after I did. These are people over here who've been fighting the war, or working every day for the war effort, and he didn't want to take fu**ing pictures with them?"
