As if their candidate needed to further alienate the veteran voting bloc, Obama's clueless handlers have done it again. There were emails circulating on Memorial Day that the presidential security detail had locked down the Vietnam Memorial site early that morning, shooing off veterans and their families so that the locale could be used for a photo op. While I was never able to verify the accuracy of those emails, perhaps this ill-conceived campaign photo posted over at Hot Air where Ed Morrissey has it up as his Obamateurism of the Day, lends them some credence. It no doubt took the president's photogs some time to set up such an artsy pic with the light just so, so as to provide the requisite halo round the One's consecrated cranium. Surely the pros and the pols couldn't be bothered by the plebian presence of actual rank and file Vietnam vets and their families while such an important campaign event was underway.

What a jerk
Makes him look like Lenin.
with his chin jutting forward I think he looks more like Mussolini!
Here’s the image they’ll use on new US scrip money.
Scarily, I’m only half joking.
Ironic, isn’t it?
In 2008 Baraq had his Greek columns at the convention speech.
Now the whole f’ing country looks like Greece.
ith his chin jutting forward I think he looks more like Mussolini!
With his pencil neck, big ears and overall goofy expressions.. I always thought he looked like Don Knotts with a tan.
Those HONORED DEAD are not only YOUR comrades in arms. They are the comrades of EVERY veteran of every war engaged in by the United States. WE are all, in reality, one huge BAND OF BROTHERS, no matter when and where we served.
We ALL donned the uniform handed (or tossed) to us, trained and went wherever we were sent. Some to eternity and others to the corners of the earth, fortunate to return home once again.
To see ANY memorial sullied by such garbage is an insult to us all. I personally cannot believe the flash of rage that went through me, a non-combat Navy vet, when I gazed at that obscene “picture”.
I think of former presidents who gave honor to our uniform..Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Bush, Grant, Lincoln, Carter and probably others. There is a modicum of comfort in knowing HE never sullied it.
Obama is a disgrace to Everything Good and Proper in this country !
I am reminded again of that creepy pharaoh statue.
That ain’t a halo. It is a comet fixing to hit him on his blind side.
Research previous postings and you will find many where Obama has taken the Mussolini pose.
That is obscene.
It is an obscenity, but then the entire fraudulent life of little barry bastard commie is an obscenity worshipped by democrats. He is affirmative action gone beyond amok. What a sad thing that this lying bastard is the first Black President. How ironic that the democrats foist this fraud as a worthy black man!
Photoshop mavens! To arms!
There’s something not right...
It does appear nobama enjoys the Mussolini impersonations. If he keeps this up, the comparisons to El Douce maybe be replayed out in earnest.
What, me worry?
