    Obama Booed When He Won't Kiss On Kiss Cam

    Tough crowd. But the First Couple got a kiss, and applause, on the second pass.

    President Barack Obama was booed for the second time in less than a month over a controversial sports-related move.

    From the pool report of tonight's Team USA v.s. Brazil game in Washington tonight:

    FLOTUS and POTUS put on "Kiss Cam" in Verizon Center.
    POTUS had his arm around his wife, both smiled, didn't kiss.
    Boos from crowd.

    Last month in Boston, Obama was booed after a he joked about the Red Sox trading the popular Kevin Youkilis to his beloved Chicago White Sox.

    #Obama gets 2nd chance on Kiss Cam. Mrs. Obama let's him get a nice one on the lips. #USA crowd cheers
