The President’s Michael Dukakis Moment

President Barack Obama throws a football on the field at Soldier Field following the NATO working dinner in Chicago, Illinois, May 20, 2012.

So is he alone or just showing off in front of the NATO military leaders?

Kind of like another famous moment in democratic politics photo opportunity history!

Upon further inspection of the photo of the 44th President throwing the ball, his eyes appear to be focused on an end zone “jumbotron” display … is this possible – Barack unable to take his eyes off of himself?

Kind of adds to the “jump the shark” nature of this photo-captured moment.
