Metaphor of the day part deux: Obama's fun 'n' games diplomacy

While Israel’s PM defended his country’s right to survive before a joint session of Congress, this is what your president was doing.

From the pool report:

Obama and Cameron took of their jackets and strolled into the gym to play table tennis.

“Who wants to take me on?” Obama said as he walked in. Obama and Cameron then played part of a game of doubles against two boys. ”We may to switch it up,” said Obama. “You can’t have the old guys against the young.”

At first the leaders had some trouble getting their strategy coordinated. Both are lefties. ”Are we keeping score?” Obama asked at one point. Obama had one off-the-table save which Cameron promptly blew by overshooting. Then they figured out how to hit and then get out of the other’s way, resulting in a couple of points and high-fives.

Still, the kids were clearly winning when the pool was ushered out.
