Official White House photographer Pete Souza posted the White House's best photos of 2012 this morning.

It includes some fantastic shots from President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, as well as new photos of the president's response to the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., and of the fiscal cliff negotiations in the White House.

We've grabbed 71 of the White House's 2012 selections. Souza's captions are in italics below the photos.

""A candid portrait of the President during a meeting, juxtaposed with the paintings of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, busts of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln, and the Emancipation Proclamation. It's a difficult angle to get because I had to sit in front of the closed Oval Office door and hope that no one would open the door and knock me over.""

"White House staffers meet in the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya."

""Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor, left, updates the President and Vice President on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon and Chief of Staff Jack Lew are at right.""

Without actually clicking on the link, I’m going to make a prediction: 71 basic headshots of Barack Hussein Obama, from slightly different angles. Over and over and over.

Dazzling!!

No sure why this is on Free Republic . . . are we supposed to be impressed by this Kenyan-born illegal alien’s charades in our White House. Really?

Simply "dazzling." The president wipes down after a supporter accidentally spills frozen yogurt on him.

I'm not sure if the image will appear after posting. Nothing shows on preview but this is beyond dazzling, it is a critical example of how nothing sticks to this guy.

The crowd on FR is hard to impress, so how about looking for clues about Dear Leader's charades?

The Obamites are having a proud moment of gloating, they might slip up and go bumppity bump. (The MSM wouldn't notice)

Remember all the Goebbels-like photos of Hitler on the "patio" of his mountain top retreat, "Berchtesgaden"?

Hitler dapper in German mountaineers hat with feather, Hitler hugging his huge dog, the spectacular view of the German Alps in the background, Hitler surrounded by adoring aides and generals in mufti, Eve Braun, hovering like a good little prop in her fetching German dirndl costume, Hitler receiving famous guests and celebrities, Hitler patting little incipient nazis on the head, Hitler joking around with a corpulent Goering.....

....well, propaganda by camera has not changed a wit since then....only the backdrops.

Look at the painting on the wall.

"In 1776, an extraordinary group of men signed a document that affirmed their God-given right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." By attaching their signatures to our great Declaration of Independence, they, in effect, were signing their potential death warrants.

Indeed, the last line of our Declaration reads, "For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor."

For this?

"Dazzling!!"

HA!

I'm sure Obama is dazzled! There are framed photo portraits of him all over the place in White House and other locations.

What a guy....he better not look in the water at his visage.

I'm APPRECIATIVE these photos were posted.

Why? Because as haffast stated in his post above, they afford CLUES for those who have the intellectual curiosity to increase their knowledge of what and who Obama is.

Knowledge is power, as the Axelrod and Jarrett propaganda propagators know full well.

We can learn a lot about this evil man from these propaganda pictures if we take the time. It's an exercise of the little grey cells that I and many others relish.

For my comment on one of the things that I got out of viewing these photos of the post-Hitlerian fascist, Barack Husseing Obama (plus the deliberate and varied props in each of the pics), please refer to my post above #18.

On second thought, maybe a weekly: `A Day In The Life of President Obama’ is a good idea.
It will be good practice for learning how to walk under the yoke in the years ahead.

The title of this thread clearly states "71 Dazzling Obama Photos...."

If you think this thread is an exercise in futility and he makes you barf, why did you click on to it?

ALL of us are not low-information freepers. We soak up myriads of text and visual information of all varieties like so many Sponge Bobs.

Please see my post at #18 for one of the things I got out of this thread that clues me into a major component of Obama's character.

You have a sick, twisted mind to conclude that Obama is my "Dear Leader" and "my boy" after my posts contained analysis of the connection between the photographic propaganda of the neo-fascist Obama and that of Hitler's photographic propaganda.

What on earth is wrong with you?

Them? They've been propagandized as belonging to the evil Old White Backward Man's Party which took what they have from innocents. They don't represent the real America anymore.

These Obamite Progressives however are moving FORWARD to a warm and fuzzy utopia of cultural diversity and CommUnity being sure to include those that live on the "margins of society". That's "social justice".

In other words, the have nots want more cheese from those that made the cheese, and the fair thing to do is give it to them.
