Try to imagine that you’re talking to a young child (or perhaps a Portuguese Water Dog) and imitate that pose, with a flat back. It just ain’t natural. Which leads me to conclude that it is a premeditated attempt to make it look like he does this all the time.
A prediction: Look for many more awkward photos like these in the near future, perhaps with features which tout not only his athleticism but his amazing flexibility (perhaps with awesome commentary about what a perfect match he is for Michelle of the toned arms.)
1. From the White House website, a different view of the same pose, which he clearly held for a long time. Maybe Rahm “The Dancer” Emanuel is giving him lessons.

2. It’s about one month later, and Barack is bending over again, with a little less flex in the knees. (H/T Allahpundit)
