Fist bumps are totally American! Go Obama!

Yes, I know this blog is usually filled with neatly sectioned paragraphs about macroeconomics, NAFTA and open innovation models.

So folks are saying the strangest things about Barack Obama's fist bump with his wife. They're saying it's a black thing, it's a gangster thing, it's a tribute to terrorists...some are saying it's somehow un-American. People will try anything to play on conservatives fear these day. Anyhow, see below for evidence that Barack's fist bump is totally kosher.

This baby knows where it's at:

Here's Harry Connick, Jr., a 2nd generation American mediocre performer:

Maybe it an un-American terrorist act after all. Although Hideki is doing a better job than Dice-K.

Feel free to add your own fist bumps in the comments sections. Time for me to get back to paperwork...

PS No, I couldn't find any Jews fist bumping, which would have proved that Israeli national security is safe in the hands of Barack Obama. I welcome a submission. But other Hideki Matsui, I couldn't find any evil doers fist bumping either.
