Would Bush eyeball, approach and grope any male Head of State without permission, in public? Anyone think Merkel looks like she is enjoying his attentions? Nope. He then walks on without speaking to her.
If that's how the leader of the country with - what? - the third biggest GDP in the world? If that's how a woman of that much power is treated, what do you think his attitude is to ordinary women? And what about the bloggers who say that Merkel should 'lighten up' and 'enjoy the attention'? Frickin' hell. You think the Germans appreciate him groping their leader?
