Bush earned it. He was in the military. Was Obama in the military? He was a successful Governor. Was Obama a Governor? Besides, he was running for re-election. This is Obama’s first shot at the Presidency. Obama is about as “newbie” as they come. He hasn’t earned anything. It’s all been handed to him.
A few columns and American flags does not a faux temple make!
Ummm... Bush’s stage was dignified, worthy of a president.
Obama’s stage is a cheesy Hollywood set that looks like a 60’s B movie set in the mythical city of Atlantis.
in 2004 Bush was already the President, the backdrop could have been a type of replica of the White House...perfectly acceptable for a sitting President.
Obama’s mistake is the presumption of importance...he’s a nominee.
That being said, I agree with other posters who have said i’ts meant to replicate the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of the day MLK gave his I Have a Dream speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Relativism. Wait and watch.
BTW, Notice the real presidential seal in the 2004. Who was President in 2004?
Not even close.
Check out the Temple of barack at Invesco:
Yeah, Ben and his buddies just don’t get it. This guy is all ego and no substance. Maybe in 4 years, if he’s president, he might warrant the neoclassical setting. Tomorrow is going to look like a Nazi propaganda event... which it pretty much is.
OK, maybe I’m stating the obvious here, but Bush’s set doesn’t look ANYTHING LIKE A TEMPLE. Had they looked like a temple, don’t you think liberals would have noticed and said something about it? When one looks at the set going up for Obama, one immediately thinks of a Greek or Roman temple....this has been observed by republicans and democrats alike.
