Skip to comments.Staging of Obama photo taken after TV announcement of bin Laden's death.
Posted on 05/04/2011 3:33:11 PM PDT by Sprite518
As President Obama continued his nine-minute address in front of just one main network camera, the photographers were held outside the room by staff and asked to remain completely silent. Once Obama was off the air, we were escorted in front of that teleprompter and the President then re-enacted the walk-out and first 30 seconds of the statement for us.

This would be funny if the economy didn’t suck so bad.
Man this is insane. The jerk doesn’t want to show photo proff of OBL’s death but is kicking out photo op after photo op of him celebrating the act.
Wonder when the next Obama fly-by by Air Force One is coming the NYC...
Everything - including our national security - is nothing but a campaign photo-op for this jackass.
So now the media is now saying Obama is staging photos. What else is he staging?
His legitimacy to be president?
This is getting crazier by the hour...
Needed the pictures for his 2012 fundraising letters. Maybe he’ll also include photos from his NYC Air Force One fly-by.
Staging reading from a teleprompter... Obama is a sick CLOWN!
Just as we shot Bin Laden, the camera lights went out. So, after we fixed the lights, we stood him back up and shot him in the head a second time.
His walk away from the TOTUS was (IMO) not an assured gait and I swear, he had no socks on.
I doubt if there is any copy of this, but I'd sure like to see it again just to see If I'm nuts or not.
The staged photo is, again IMO, a clean up of what he knew was a very bad display of ....
I don't know .. it took a long time for him to come out ... maybe he was too stoned ???
Doesn’t surprise me one bit.
I thought, maybe, in the past few weeks O was unraveling and we might be witnessing a total meltdown. The strange thing is - everyone around him seems to be melting down right alongside him!
It’s a good thing Bin Laden is dead, or this would be the perfect time to attack us again while the chickens are running around with their heads cut off.
I never really believed in the birther issue before but I’m getting more and more suspicious now.
He is an empty suit with a teleprompter AND a teleprompter instructor!
Osama might be dead, but his successor is alive and watching.
Fake but accurate??
Maybe stoned, or maybe sad that his orders caused the death of a fellow Muslim?
Coach Teleprompter please report to the Won immediately.
“He has no substance. He is an empty suit with a teleprompter.”
He would have made a fine General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
At the time, I wondered if that delay was related to a desperate attempt by his White House handlers to come up with "the right story" for the American public.
The never-ending changes in the accounts of Osama bin Laden's demise since Sunday night are very telling, in my mind.
Or perhaps a fifth column really IS in place ... suicide by (alleged presidential) dictate ?
Consider ... We don't like the bastard and we can't ice 'im, but we CAN do something that will bring a fatwah on his ass ... "
Yeah ... THAT'S the ticket.
Obama's teleprompter speech cadence is so unnatural. Do you think he may use inflextion according to the end of a teleprompter line instead of according to the meaning of the words? I just don't understand the he's-a-great-orator opinion.
Go back a night earlier to the correspondents’ dinner. The president seemed ashen when he was “joking,” and his delivery was very stiff. I was surprised when anyone said they thought his remarks were humorous. They were awful. I thought he must’ve been in a really bad mood due to Trump. Now we know the rest of the story. Or part of the rest of the story. Or part of the ever-evolving story.
Yep ... the guy was trashed.
Obama is a sick FRAUD!
Or maybe angry that his orders had been ignored, and afraid that his benefactors would think the death of a fellow muslim was his order.
Obama: "And we have a movie coming out tomorrow about this event that is sure to be a box-office sensation. It has already received great reviews from Michael Moore, Jimmy Carter and Cindy Sheehan."
According to the article this has been standard practice for decades.
The president does his live speech for the video camera, during which time no still cameras are allowed. This is to keep the clicking of the shutters from interfering with the audio. Then the president goes back and walks up to the podium again and rereads a few sentences of the speech. This gives the still photographers a chance to get their shots of him.
Ha ha the media was “escorted in front of the teleprompter” LOL
Has been since at least Reagan, according to the photogs themselves. Cutlines from the wires state that Obama’s speaking “to photographers,” but it depends on your local copy editors how it appears in your local daily.
Nothing this usurper does is real.
It is all staged.
He is an actor trained to be an imposter, playing the part of a president.
His only skill is that he can sometimes read words off teleprompters in a convincing tone.
Who is he really?
Where was he trained?
Who is the money-man behind his rise from nowhere in a few short years?
Who created the legend of Barack the Harvard man/lawyer/Community Organizer/author/politician?
We can see he isn’t too bright - who is real the brains behind the scene?
Who is writing the script for him?
“This is getting crazier by the hour...”
Agree and it’s because Obama’s every act is calculated and staged to gain political advantage at that moment. He is a total fraud.
“I thought, maybe, in the past few weeks O was unraveling and we might be witnessing a total meltdown.”
He will. It’s just a matter of time. It is obvious that he has a severe narcissistic personality disorder. Those types cannot cope with setbacks and failure.
Every president in recent history has done this. Learn how to read.
Your theory is more likely than mine.
It will be very interesting to see what kind of reception he gets from New Yorkers tomorrow at Ground Zero.
FBI will probably keep REAL native NYorkers about two blocks away while the upfront crowd will be handpicked Obamabots.
“So now the media is now saying Obama is staging photos. What else is he staging?”
What’s even worse is, THEY ARE LETTING HIM DO IT, like cpmpliant lttle sheep from the Soviet Press.
They dare not say ANYTHING, lest the blowback from the Soros Orgs cost them their job. And “Journolist” jobs aren’t easy to get, nowadays.
Welcome to fascism in action. This is exactly how it works.
He’s a model. He likes to do his little turn on the catwalk. Yeah, on the catwalk....
Where’s Baghdad Bob ... ?
