Putin 'Infuriated' by Obama's 'Bored Kid' Remark

The New York Times is reporting that an anonymous source described Russian President Vladamir Putin as "infuriated" when Obama described Putin's body language "like the bored kid in the back of the classroom."

Suspicion of President Obama only intensified after his decision to scuttle a summit meeting next week in Moscow and to describe Mr. Putin in unusually personal terms at a news conference, saying his body language often made him look "like the bored kid in the back of the classroom."

And while Obama went on to say "when we’re in conversations together, oftentimes it’s very productive" nevertheless "the comment infuriated Mr. Putin, according to one Russian official not authorized to be quoted by name."
