Presentably adequate, thank goodness. (Image: Screen grab of Yahoo! News/Reuters video)

No, he doesn’t dance it with Argentine passion.  He does OK.  It would be icky if he did better than OK, so at least we have that going for us.

Michelle dances too, with a separate partner.  She’s in shadow much of the time so we don’t see as much of her on the dance floor.

Remarkably, Obama caught grief from his biggest fans for his Terpsichorean turn down in BA.  Politico also quotes Richard Haass (Council on Foreign Relations) as saying the tango-dancing is “inconsistent with the seriousness of the day.”

Harsh, that.  Haass doesn’t seem to understand.  Being an Alinskyite radical with a crisp crease in your pant leg means you can apologize to yet another country for “America,” be on the same planet with the Brussels attacks, and tango in Argentina, all at the same time — and it’s just you being cool.
