Fox News Photog Snaps Amusing Shot of Obama Lecturing Putin from Grade School Classroom
Newsbusters.org ^ | March 4, 2014 | Ken Shepherd

Posted on 03/04/2014 2:38:34 PM PST by Kaslin

You can imagine the field day the media would have with this photograph were it President Bush delivering a lecture to Russian president Vladimir Putin over the Ukrainian crisis.

Earlier today, Fox News reporter Bryan Cole, snapped an photo of the president delivering remarks from a podium in a Washington, D.C., elementary classroom. The podium was resting atop a blue oval rug with the letters of the alphabet around the edge [see below page break for image]. After Mark Knoller of CBS radio tweeted about it, our friends at Twitchy had fun lampooning the president, among other folks in the conservative blogosphere.


In the comments section, feel free to leave your caption for the photo. The winner gets a blueberry pie from Al Sharpton's kitchen or a lock of Ronan Farrow's hair.*

Now, in fairness, there's a more flattering image of Obama that Cole also snapped, showing President Obama with some students:

Before his remarks, Pres Obama dropped by reading lesson for pre-schoolers. (TV pool photo by Bryan Cole/Fox News) pic.twitter.com/V5ZGYdrPha — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) March 4, 2014

Even so, were I Cole, I might want to retain a tax attorney just in case the IRS decides to audit my tax return this year.

They finally got ‘smart’ and moved the teleprompter out of camera view so that Jar-Jar Obama doesn’t look like the total doofus he is?

Fox news may have captured the photo of the coward in chief but the 6pm “News” reporting of the event, used the view of Barry between two flags, while reporting that he was commenting on his budget. The Fox reporter never mentioned who was in the room, or where the room was!

Can Anyone tell me what presenting the annual budget to Congress and standing in front of pre-schoolers have in common? Please?????

He has gone further off the deep end than his veep has, and I didn’t think that was possible.

Does every school have a silly rug like that or is that something the 0bambi crew drags around with them?

They must carry the rug with them to schools. There’s no way two schools would have the same round rug. Weird.

They are actually two different but very similar rugs which makes me doubt that they belong to the respective schools. If they were something that came from some catalog of school supplies I suspect that they would be the same. Which means that it’s more likely that they are custom made rugs that 0bambi brings with him and they don’t even try to save a buck by ordering a single pattern.

Either way, it seems goofy that they would use a rug like that when he’s making remarks to the nation.
