    That's not a selfie... But I also don't see anything wrong with what the POTUS did. It was a celebration of life as well as a remembrance of NM.

    I think the whole thing has gotten silly. This really isn't about party, at least to me. It's just funny to see a powerful man getting the same treatment by his wife that most men would in the same situation. Was it a celebration versus a funeral? Yes. Was he caught having fun and flirting with a younger, prettier woman? Yep. Did his wife give him hell for it? Yep. This is what most married men and married women have been through, and seeing it play out was hilarious. And every one of you long-term married people have given each other those looks before - the "what?" look he gets at one point and the poisoned-daggers "wait-til-we-get-home" look she gives, followed by him trying to apologize.

    A lot of you are young...just wait until you're married for a long time. :D

    I agree with those that don't think this is a big deal. But it is another data point of the narcissistic nature of Obama.

    Does selfie mean neocon? All these meaningless terms from the dumbed down media.

    The term "selfie" is not a creation of the media, dumbed down or otherwise. It's actually the 2013 Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year.

    Would it have made it into the Oxford Dictionary were it not promulgated by the media?

    Nope.

    You truly have a problem staying on topic, don't you?

    Just read the article for the first time, and I'm not sure that I agree about its nature. It looks to me like one woman's personal opinion piece regarding funeral etiquette.

    I am not saying that this random woman is some kind of expert whose opinion should be revered, but I don't think that she's part of a mass media conspiracy.

    LATE ADD: Wow, I was wrong. This woman is some kind of etiquette expert. How strange. http://www.elaineswann.com/
