Photos of Bush-Merkel Press Conference

Both CNN and Fox News ran stories about a joint press conference held by President Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel where they expressed opposition to Iran’s nuclear program. Both used AP photos to accompany the article. Often the pictures used by each are the same or comparable but I have pointed out several times in the past that Fox has chosen pictures that put President Bush in a better light (or, conversely, CNN has chosen pictures that make Bush look worse). This is a case in point. I assume that CNN and Fox News had the same choices of AP photos. Which picture below shows a stronger, take-action President?
