Third-grade photo capture's [sic] Obama's grin (3rd grade in Hawaii?)
Honolulu Star Bulletin ^ | 01:30 a.m. HST, Dec 28, 2009 | Patt Gee

A former Manoa resident sent President Barack Obama an old photo of the two of them taken while they were third-grade classmates at Noelani Elementary School, requesting an autograph more than six months ago. He recently received the autographed picture back, as well as a personally signed thank-you note.

Wait Dr. when he tries to tax the crap out of you and the Missus. Then we will see how much you admire “Barry”

Some people are just so freakin naive

Well, at least one of them pursued a productive life. The other existed on Government handouts and succeeded in wercking a nation.

Inoue said he and his wife, Faye, are avid fans of Obama and have read his two books. "He is such a great speaker. He has a way of just connecting with people. It's just so inspiring. Sometimes I'm moved to tears; my wife as well,"

We may not know much about barry but we know Inoue and Faye are dupes.

Looks like a gang sign to me. Who’s Obambi signing to?

And I go back to my previous inquiry on this: if Obama has been involved in covering up his squeaky-clean past, why? Why is it such a big deal to tell us where he was born and where he spent most of his younger years? Then, I’d like to know why it’s such a big deal that we learn why he won’t release his college records. If a foreign entity has been involved with covering up this man’s past for the last 40 years, I’d like to know why and WHO is doing this?

Someone had plans for this kid from his very early youth. I want to know why.

I know it’s a 3rd grade pic, but it doesn’t even LOOK like Obama...

He can’t be a pod person; pod people are exact copies of the Earthlings they replace.

Widely published biographies say Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 through 1971, and none mention his third-grade year at Noelani, Inoue acknowledges. But he said Obama attended at least part of his third-grade year at Noelani in 1969, perhaps during a visit back to Hawaii, and moved away.


Well, DAYUM.

Guess he didn’t count on any pesky photos surfacing that might refute information in either of his novels about his life.

No, it doesn’t look a great deal like him. the pattern of his teeth are different as well but that could just be because he still hasn’t got his adult teeth yet?

And also it doesn’t seem incongrous to the couple that he is in Hawaii when he was supposed to be in Indonesia.

That's a photoshopped picture, I'd bet my life on it! Who is supposed to have taken that picture? Not professional photogs of the day--even their best cameras didn't have that 'polished' digital appearance...certainly not the teacher's camera, which would have been one of those 'modern' Kodak ones kind of like this MAYBE!!

Don't think a teacher's pay could have afforded one back then though...

That is kinda neat. I mean it does not matter the politics but I would love to get a picture with a friend from the past just suddenly arrive. I don’t know but I don’t think everything needs to be political. I think this is kinda cool. If it was a suddenly “found” picture of President Reagan and a friend or even better a cute picture of Sarah Palin and a friend from third grade, I wonder if there would be snarky comments.

NObama was born in August of 1961.
Age 10 would have pushed that to 1971.

Kids in pic are supposed to be 1969.

No reason for the other kid’s mom to write the wrong date on the pic.

NOTHING about NObama’s past adds up.

He is a complete fiction.

When Obama decided to run for president, Inoue had his mother dig up the photo and sent an enlarged copy to Obama's senatorial office in Illinois with a request for his autograph. There was no response. He tried again after the inauguration, and several months later an envelope from the White House arrived.

Obama did not respond to the first request because he had to have all of the records sealed at Noelani Elementary first.

Well at least it did not take 8 years to finish a four year degree like some politicians. I think Kennedy being one of them. Anyone who can’t finish a degree in 4 and at the most 5 years is one dumb idiot!!!

The teeth look very different and they aren’t baby teeth, not in the third grade. They look like Bugs Bunny teeth. Obama must have had braces since then.

The reason he is a foot taller than the other kids is probably because he’s 10 y.o. in the 3rd grade.

On a second look, it could be him. Must mean his ears grew faster than his head - something that would almost never have happened today, and the mole must have appeared later in life.

No, it would probably have been a fine camera like this -

http://www.rockymountainfilm.com/equipment/Camerz%20camera.htm

That or a similar Beattie-Coleman, in either case the cameraman would have been a pro, the lens would have been excellent, and the film format would have been equivalent to a 6x6 medium-format, all in all nearly Hasselblad-quality.

These were specially made high-volume portrait cameras using 70mm bulk fim, these were standard for the usual “picture day” portraits.

As for the “teacher camera”, in those days the odds would have favored a 126 Instamatic, not the 110 (much smaller film format), as the 110’s didn’t come in until a few years later (1970’s). In any case, this is almost certainly not an Instamatic picture. Due to film and flash costs (bulbs or flashcubes then) it would have been cheaper to call in the pro with the Camerz.
