Obama Comment Infuriated Putin

The New York Times says that Russia's suspicion of President Obama "only intensified after his decision to scuttle a planned summit meeting next week in Moscow and to describe Mr. Putin in unusually personal terms at a White House news conference, saying his body language often made him look 'like the bored kid in the back of the classroom.'"

"Though Mr. Obama went on to say that their interactions were often constructive, the comment infuriated Mr. Putin, according to one Russian official not authorized to be quoted by name."
