Patterico's Pontifications


All Things Obama

Filed under: Obama — DRJ @ 5:47 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

I can’t decide what to talk about: Maybe Obama’s rejuvenated Presidency, exemplified by his Today Show interview where he said “Nothing succeeds like success in this town.”

Or a photo comparison of Obama vs Bush with America’s military troops.

Or maybe today’s meeting with French President Sarkozy in which Obama vowed to seek sanctions against Iran this Spring, maybe even “in weeks.”

Say, how about a caption contest (via Drudge):

  14. Batman was French? WTF?

  15. Hey that soldier in the upper right Bambi photo looks like the same guy in the lower left of the Bush photo.

    Greg Packer? Could he be that resourceful?

  19. Hey that soldier in the upper right Bambi photo looks like the same guy in the lower left of the Bush photo.

    I’ll be damned, PC14, that might be the same guy. Good eye. Undercover Secret Service maybe?

    Myron (6a93dd)

  20. Or, less exciting: Just a soldier who likes to get near the president and is high-ranking enough to always get close on the “rope line.”

    I love the way Bush is clutching that soldier’s head. I didn’t like his policies, but he always came off as a personable dude.

    Myron (6a93dd)

  21. PC14:

    I agree with Myron: Good catch. It’s got to be the same guy. Either Secret Service or military PR.

    Smarter folk than me can probably figure it out real soon.

    Ag80 (f67beb)

  22. I don’t think it’s the same guy because he looks older in the Bush photo than in the Obama photo, plus the guy in the Bush photo has longer earlobes. But if it is the same guy, I want to know his secret.

    DRJ (daa62a)

  23. DRJ—You don’t know that one of Greg Packer’s many disguises is the old trick of elongating his ear lobes?

    PC14 (82e46c)

  24. If you pull your ears REALLY hard, it sucks all your wrinkles out. It’s like a ghetto botox. Obama is actually 599 years old.

    dustin (b54cdc)

  25. Heh — to both PC14 and Dustin.

  34. I think that soldier was actually giving him the finger, so Obams took it.

    Patricia (fa8e06)

  35. the photo from the ‘stan proves how stupid Ear Leader is: you NEVER pull a Soldier’s finger unless you are already in MOPP-4.

  36. Two different guys – the ears are different: One has ear-lobes, the other doesn’t.

    You can hear as well? Is there nothing you can’t do?

  39. AD -the ears are different:

    Well, perhaps, but then again you are looking at a different angle and at the opposite ear.

    Yes, one is the right ear, the other is the left.
    But, the shapes are different, and very few people have an ear-lobe on one side, and none on the other – at least due to natural causes.

  45. We need to get some of those “Health Reform is a BFD” T-Shirt’s before they sell out!!

    Do you think you can get Joe to autograph it for me?

    These are the kind of people that run our country. Well thank you very much, a billboard of people wearing these shirts ought to be helpful in getting the vote out, at least among those who have an ounce of propriety left.

    “Daddy, what does that shirt mean?”
