The moving finger wags, and having wagged, moves on ...

The enduring image of the Obama presidency is that wagging index finger, as the president does his best to explain a difficult concept to his dim-witted audience, whether it be the U.S. Congress, the Supreme Court, or the world at large. The British seem to have noticed it, as Reuters reports today:

British support for staying in the European Union has fallen by two percentage points to 51 percent according to a poll, a decline that may suggest U.S. President Barack Obama's words in favor of UK membership had yet to have an impact.
Yet to have an impact? Well, perhaps. Or perhaps there's another and simpler explanation: that Mr Obama's words have indeed sunk in. It may be that Brits are like everyone else and don't appreciate having foreigners tell them what to think.
