Skip to comments.Q. Who authorized release of the WH Sit Room photo?
Posted on 05/02/2011 5:40:14 PM PDT by PhilosopherStone1000
Dumb0 still in his golf clothes, looking pissed, stuck in the corner while the adults are in the chairs with laptops.
Looks like the kid you invite to a party because you know he doesn't have any friends but then leave to skulk around by himself because there's a reason he doesn't have any friends.
And what signal does that photo send to foreign leaders? That Dumb0 really isn't in charge (which frankly, isn't the worst signal to send out)?
Boy, ain't that the truth. He looks like he'd much rather be out playin' golf than playin' pressydent.
What a putz!
Well Obama may have had it released in order to show how scared Hillary looked. Perhaps just in case she changes her mind and decides to run against him.
I dunno, I’ll cut him a break on this. Candid photos...pfft. More worried about his lousy policies than what he wears.
So where might one find this picture?
I can think of many things to criticize the President for - this picture isn't one of them. It is one of the few, non-staged pictures I've seen of him and I'd say he looks focused, not pissed. They all look pretty intensely focused.
But Hillary has a laptop and classified briefing book in front of her. Dumb0 got nothing. Air Forcer sitting in exec chair with Hill and Plugs in supporting positions.
Obama would never have authorized the release of this photo.
Oh! I thought she was just shocked at the wallpaper on Gen. Webb’s laptop, as he scrambled to get it off the projector!
Sorry, he looks like the weasel that he is. Very out of place.
Sorry, but Dumb0 never “focuses” unless it’s about him. And the Prez always gets a swivel chair,not a standard chair that they pulled out of the hallway at the last minute.
Just watch this play out. Dumb0 is being sabotaged by others in the WH.
He looks serious and as you said non staged, and I agree with that. He also is the only one not wearing professional clothing and is clearly an observer whereas his vp, and secretaries are engaged on a laptop. Leading from behind. I bet no one else in that room was on a golf course earlier in the day, and that is fair game for criticism.
Little Zero is scared. Little Joe doesn’t know WTF is going on. Pathetic bunch of pandering morons surrounding the boob tube. That’s your leadership, Amerika.
That is because in this photo they are showing the "Ren & Stimpy" pre-show cartoon they offered to temp the resident off of the golf course to get some work done.
Hence the situation-appropriate expressions.
Yes, lots of shots of him chairing meetings prior and a few of him going over his speech notes after.
But you can’t tell me that for an operation that lasted 40 minutes (longer if you count debrief to make sure we got OBL)the WH can’t put together ONE candid shot of Dumb0 looking like he’s actually leading the op.
Hillary looks like she just saw Huma with another man.
Seriously doubt that. WH staff photogs just click away until they run out of battery. Figuring out WHICH photo gets released to the public is very much above their pay grade.
Barry HUSSEIN looks pissed! Enlarge the photo and take a good look at his face. He looks like an outsider...and according to the White House Insider this operation was done despite obama’s objections
You can bet Obama cleared its release. He looks fine. Hillary looks like a low-level type scared to death at what is transpiring.
Yes, and my point was that those being photographed have final approval over what gets released.
Could have been:
Did Senior Military/Intelligence Officials Overrule President Obama Regarding Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden?
by Ulsterman in Issues, May 2, 2011
A reluctant American president who was ultimately overridden by senior military and intelligence officials to finally take out terrorist Osama Bin Laden

What''s wrong with this picture??
All those old folks in one room and only two have glasses on??
Are you sure this just isn’t a nightmare and the guy in the center with the suit is the president, and the little weasly jerk scrunched up in the corner isn’t the pizza boy who just came by and was allowed to look on?
That’s not a suit, that’s the jacket he had on over his golf shirt...
Looks like he was the last one there and got there after the raid was over. Hilary is in the seat of power. HMMM?
God Bless the CIA
Haven’t read that yet. Night is still young.
Yes, and my point is why wouldn’t Dumb0 release a photo where he’s multitasking looking at a laptop and the main screen while talking on a phone with a look of determination and maybe some emphatic gesturing to show that he’s actually running things?
This is supposed to be the guy who’s soooo smart that he plays four-dimensional chess and yet he doesn’t even have a briefing book in front of him much less a laptop. Heck, he doesn’t even have a swivel chair. Are you telling me that he couldn’t have asked Hill or Plugs to give up their swivel chairs for the CinC?
I repeat: Dumb0 would NEVER have authorized the release of this photo. So who DID authorize it?
John Madden on the right! Now we know who was running the show!
Joe looks like he wants a hamburger.
Hey! somebody get the VP a hamburger. Please.
The last man on the left, way, way in the back (obscured) looks like Bill Ayers.
Obama says, “Hey, yawl run down and get the kitchen staff, there’s room for everybody to watch. Tell them to bring some munchies. Oh don’t worry General, they won’t tell anybody about this top secret stuff.”
I read it. Interesting.
Sec. Gates is the only adult in the room.
Looks like Obama could use a phone book to sit on. He looks like he delived a pizza and saw something interesting, so decided to stick around.
Baraq wandered in from a round of golf and found some exciting action on the tube.
She knows what the tech traded to the Chinese then passed around is capable of.
He looks like a 14 year old boy who was allowed to sit in one of dads meatings.
Like voyeurs watching a slasher flick. Creepy.
CBS News last night was saying that meetings on this @ the WH were already underway in the a.m. yesterday.
They also said Obama played 9 holes of golf (instead of his normal 18).
But what Prez who was REALLY in charge of what was going on in the a.m. meetings would then waltz on out to play 9 holes of golf - only to be interrupted in the middle because they thought it'd be a good idea if he was present, after all.
Guess who's wasn't running the show Sunday?
My guess is that the CIA-Military team has had enough on Zer0-bama & his "real birth" circumstances all along that he has to go along with whatever they dictate to him. When it comes to military decisions, he's along for the ride the rest of his prezidency.
I agree with you. To criticize the President’s appearance in the picture, well that’s just being partisan. I’m going to give the President a “honeymoon” period for a little while. Before we can go back on focusing his other flaws such as his economic management. Speaking of that, we’re going to hit the debt ceiling anytime now.
When is Secretary Gates’ last day at the Pentagon? We’ll miss him.
Thank you for the link.
yep - he looks like a little boy and Hillary looks like a scared little girl
