Skip to comments.Situation Room Photo Fake! (Obama photoshopped in!)

This is not one of my 'Photoshops', this is one of the most viewed photographs ever on Flickr, and it was posted by the Whitehouse on their official WH Flickr account. A popular Swedish program has uncovered something very funny about it.
Notice how small Obama is in the picture? Much smaller than all of those who surround him.

I think its real...if they faked it, they wouldn’t make O look like he had just been yanked off the golf course. Although tall @ 6’1”, he always looks tiny...like in the iconic photo of him hanging drapes, or quite frankly any photo of him next to his wife.
But it's more fun to speculate that it's 'shopped.
Also, if you'll look, the camera was focused on Hillary's face. Given the depth of field that appears in the photo, Obama appears to be out of focus by about the right amount.
MSM will let it slide just like all the rest including the 57 States Gaff.

Also remember that BO and MCLAME either both had an obvious gaff or were ‘slow’ and/or incoherent in answering during a debate.
“THEY” said John was old and senile (true) but pooh pawed BO off with “He is tired and on a tight schedule” or some other such trite.
No mystery here, DumBO had to photoshop his presence here to cover the fact he pulled the trigger on bin Laden in Pakistan.
OK, I think I recognize everybody except one...
Who’s the lady right in front of Mr. Clean?
The fact that every other “expert” on here chimes in to say why it’s def photo shopped, astounds me.
Staged or posed is one thing, but they certainly have the people available to appear in a photo, there is no need to photo shop.
What leads me to believe (as I did then) this was a fake is that anyone as Narcissistic and so full of himself as Dear Leader is, would NEVER cede the position of “honor” to anyone, especially a “Military” person; he would have insisted a pic be taken only after he assumed his “Rightful” place as Community Agitator in Least!!!
Suddenly I feel like painting a landscape.
Awww. I loved ‘Painting With Bob’ and his “happy, little trees”. LOL!
Where is looter guy? Was he not invited?
Obama’s bio lists him as 6 feet tall. But Michelle is listed as 5-10, and she’s taller than Obama in most pictures.
I remember think that obozo looked scared.
I didn't know that... so he was definitely photoshopped in. More propaganda than Hitler and Stalin...
The silver tag on the right breast of the officer next to Obama should be OK for a size benchmark. It is a standard item and its height can be determined.
The size of Obama’s face can also be determined from other photos (say the distance from his lips to his eyebrows).
With the benchmark, someone can determine if the size of Obama’s face in the photo is the same as it is in real life.
If it’s in the ballpark size wise (say 90-110%), then there’s no evidence it was photoshopped (as the slight variation can be blammed on sitting slightly away from the table).
If it’s way off (say 50-60% of what you would expect) then it’s pretty strong evidence it was photoshopped in (as that is way too much variation, imho, to be accounted for by Obama sitting slightly behind the officer).
He came in earlier with the beer.

Staged situation room. Panneta said it was stage.
