What fool at the White House inserts this picture as the first in the current White House flickr stream? Think I'm kidding? Check out the real thing www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/4291192735/
Look, someone over there, some adult, has to be aware of the impression that the President is a narcissistic man child. Are they really this much of a crew of bumbling clueless adolescents? Is no one aware that this picture just calls out for the political opposition to photo shop it to the President's detriment. There will be unicorns!
Crikey! Its worse than I thought. This photo on the same day a retiring blue dog Democrat Marion Berry lets loose with this:
Berry recounted meetings with White House officials, reminiscent of some during the Clinton days, where he and others urged them not to force Blue Dogs "off into the swamp" of supporting bills that would be unpopular with voters back home.
"I've been doing that with this White House, and they just don't seem to give it any credibility as all," Berry said. "They just kept telling us how good it was going to be. The President himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, 'well, the big difference here and in '94 was you've got me.' We're going to see how much difference that makes now"
Its all about Obama's awesomeness.
