Did White House Doctor Photo of President "Throwing" Football?
Pundit Press ^ | 5/21/12 | Aurelius

Posted on 05/21/2012 2:18:51 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

I'm not one for conspiracy theories. I prefer to base my opinions on demonstration fact that I can point to. However, after looking at an extremely odd photo of President Obama "throwing" a football, I have my doubts that this photo is real.

...At a quick glance, the picture seems real:

However, on closer inspection , some very odd things pop up. If you go to the linked picture, in which the photo is notably larger, peculiar things become obvious. In particular, the President's enlarged eyes in the photo and the pixels that surround his head and arms, but are not present in any other part of the picture. Zoomed in, this is what it looks like:

Note the pixelation that occurs around the entirety of the President's head. Such deterioration does not exist anywhere else (at least so obviously) in the photo. Also note Mr. Obama's oddly large eyes.

All I’ll say is either that football is huge or Ovama’s a very small man.

Actually, I think he's gotten a bad rap when it comes to being an athlete. This video shows he did very well when he threw out a first pitch a couple of years ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaP1JW1aXmk

Notice around his chin and back of head. Little circle dabs from the blurring tool.

It's photochopped.

Why is he in his suit on an empty football field and with empty stands?

Maybe he's a fan of Tommy Wiseau's work in "The Room"?

the chin contour and color appears awfully uniform as if worked on using a blur/blend tool.

Also seems odd to me...using what appears to be a low-res photo. A shot like this would have likely come from a paid pro-presser, and they’re not known for skimping on cheap equipment.

Exif scrubbed?

Apparently, this photo was on Barry’s Facebook account, with the title:

“Clear eyes, full hearts”....

...which is apparently a catch phrase from the tv show Friday Night Lights...

As if the photo op could be any more inane.

I'm more concerned that he appears to be on the verge of pinching that tiny man's ass!

In the spirit of "pinching" here's a hilarious clip of "The Head Crusher" - there are two parts in one clip:

That image was probably taken by somebody watching a rebroadcast.

What IS interesting though, is that Sheriff Joe talked with Breitbart only a few hours before his death. Bet that was an interesting conversation.

He's supposed to be holding a gun with the other hand to make the whole thing look super extra manly. He tries so hard to appear heterosexual, you gotta credit the effort.

Ran it through Adobe just for the heck of it.
Kicked up the brightness 30-40%, this is not even a half ass photoshop effort, laughable.
The boys in the White Hut really need to get some talent in there regarding faking photos.

After seeing pics of Putin doing karate, hunting, swimming and boxing; along with occasional pics of GWB tearing down a mountain path on an all-terrain bike, apparently the poofter-in-chief decided he`d better get with the program. The Pee-Wee Herman bicycle look wasn`t cutting it.

We are watching something interesting unfold here. The SoS in AZ is asking for the easiest of easy qualifications to get on the AZ ballot (Where citizens of Maricopa county will vote. Arpaio’s jurisdiction). Just “affirm he’s eligible” is what is being asked. Easy peasy.

But if the HI department of records gives that simple assurance, they’ll have to fall back on a document that is proven forged. Presto! Standing.

There is a game afoot. Pop some corn.

Someone sent in a better picture. Not photoshopped after all.

But he still throws like a sissy.

I'm changing from shopped to poorly staged. Original shot here. Notice the relaxed facial expression. No signs of any kind of musculo-motor concentration at all. At the moment this shot was taken, there was no willful intent to actually "throw" the ball. Just my free opinion worth exactly what you paid for it. :)

But he sure looks macho, doesn't he?

Who cares. He is a disgrace but throwing a football does not matter one way or the other. I suppose had McCain won election some would be making fun of him for not throwing the football correctly.

It’s posed. That’s why he looks weird. He always looks like a dork, he knows he can’t throw, so they faked it. And he still looks like a dork.

You know I miss the old corn poppers. Now you just throw it in the microwave and out it comes. I always loved it at the movies in the old days when the machine was making it right in front of your eyes,...the smell, the butter (or whatever the hell that yellow crap was!). It just isn’t the same anymore. If you never tasted McDonald’s fries in the 50’s, you really missed something. They were out of this world! Now, just crap!

We have 2 teenage boys who play football. They throw their football everyday, carry it around lovingly, etc.

I have never seen either of them use this stance to throw the f.b.

He looks like he was running, and and made a leap and threw the football up into the air in front of him.

I bet it looked funny as heck to see Obama the Uncoordinated, Obama the Howdy Doody walkin’ puppet, run and throw the football into space at no one. He and his handlers are SOOOOO pathetic!

No, as stated previously, those are JPEG compression artifacts.

It's not altered (see #74); it's just poorly posed.
