A thread that calls for favorite pictures of the year...to counter Reuters bogus (except for one) photos of the year. Yes we are BIASED as we should be since the President of the USA impacts as much of the world today as the remote people of Northern Russia that took up 4 or 5 pictures and Jack Valenti who evidently deserved 7 pictures in the lineup.

There are so many pictures - that qualify as pictures of the year. At least Reuters put in the one of the President receiving his concession call from Kerry. That is the only legitimate one IMHO.

I thought the Palestinian picture was some sort of West Side Story performance at first...

I'd vote for the Kerry + curtains picture; Kerry looks utterly alone, rejected, and unhappy.

The Bush pictures are quite cute, but can't read a lot of meaning into them... unless you want to use the umbrella as a metaphor for holding onto his presidency during the tough campaigning. The concession picture of Bush by his desk is odd, you'd think he would've been more happy.

Moore's picture of him grinning hugely can be considered "most ironic". Pride goeth before a fall.

If anyone has the pic of President Bush hugging the little girl from Ohio who lost her mom on Sept 11, 2001, please post it. That one should be a favorite, it sure is for me.

I see the umbrella thing quite the opposite. They are trying to make the case that he's fouled things up as a negotiator.

Where is the "victory" photo? He won an election with global opposition. A phone call? This is it???

Chased by a bug?

I am searching - in the meantime - one would never have known the President "blended in" with the crowds at the Army Navy Game ---- that is until the attendees knew he was there and cheered every sighting of him by the chant, "4 More years!"

yeap _ I liked that one,too

I also thought this was a pretty cool pic -

although since it was actually taken in 1999 I'm not sure how it qualifies for Pictures Of The Year!?

But then there are a bunch of shots included in this series I don't think are even worth a second look, let alone special recognition!

I guess maybe I just don't understand Reuters concept of "Pictures Of The Year" *shrug*

The caption for the umbrella picture does indeed stink.

I did see one of the socialist shaking hands in Spain.

Where are the explosion photos?

The only terrorist attack image I saw was a building bombed in Saudi Arabia.

You do realize that most of the MSM has a policy to not to print pictures of victims of Arab terrorism, Saddam's mass graves, Fallujah mutilations, etc., because they're afraid that it'll incite violence against Muslims?

Of course, everyone knows that there's nothing wrong with plastering front pages of Abu Gharaib prisoners 56 days in a row.

And then the picture of the President's intervention for his Secret Service Agent - another picture of the year even though it doesn't show his face - it shows his, um, strength of character and bravery.

Photos of dead civilians from the 9/11 attacks cannot be shown out of respect for the families.

Photos of dead soldiers CAN be shown because it is detrimental to the war effort.

Pics 1,2,3, &5 didn't show.

That day was one of the happiest days of the year for me. By contrast the previous days right up to election night were the most painful. I totally shut off the media, except for Fox now and then. Peace of mind only came for me when I logged on to FR, I'll never forget that.

Note to self: don't forget to donate to FR next time.
