BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA - Politicians are known for dancing around the issues, but President Obama may have taken that skill to a new level.

No, the Prez hasn't gone Hollywood, and he's not doing Dancing With The Stars.

But he is taking up the Tango.

So what's wrong with that?

Well, it's the timing that has plenty of critics up in arms.

Since he's dancing just two days after the terror attacks in Belgium.

Obama was blasted by panelists on CNN's A-C 360 calling his dance "frivolous" and "shameful."

Of course, the president laid the groundwork for the criticism back in Cuba when he took in a baseball game and did "The Wave" just hours after the attacks.

Though he did make a statement before heading to the ball park. "We will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally, Belgium in bringing to justice those responsible," the president said.

Still, considering the blood and carnage coming out of Brussels, some say it's hard to argue with the critics.

"I can't...can't explain," an eyewitness to the attacks in Brussels said in broken English. "It looked like war. It's unbelieved. It's unbelieved. It's really hard."

But hey, it takes two to Tango.

And Obama has an invitation for all his critics when he gets back to D.C.

"Let's dance!"
