I used to think "Hot Air" was the perfect name for this site.

Now i think "Fart Breath" would be more accurate.

Hard hitting journalism once again.

If one of the pictures showed a different smile, the rightwing would be shiatting themselves wondering why.

Glenn Beck would think he was sending a signal to his socialist brethren, Rush Limbaugh would think he was sending secret battle plans for the upcoming race war to his black brothers and sisters, and Sean Hannity would wonder why the brown gushy stuff in his own underwear was stinking up the Fox Studios again today.

OMG, Obama has a photo face, just like everyone else!

STOP THE PRESSES!

To say that he Obama is not evil does not mean that I don't fear the acts he is committing. I do not know whether he deliberately intends to provoke America's downfall or whether his arrogance and commitment to his ideology prevent him from recognizing that his acts will lead to that downfall. Nevertheless, whatever is currently motivating him, he has not left the pale of humanity. Currently, he's still just a politico with some damn bad ideas - but ideas that have defined Europe (which is quite a functional, and often a very civil, society) for decades. Obama may in future commit acts that are genuinely evil because they go beyond the pale of ordinary humanity, but he has not yet done so.

This is an important point. Conservatives devalue their arguments against Obama's policy if they start throwing the word "evil" around. While that may work with the converted, it frightens the vast middle. Rather than looking like wise men (and women) with a better plan, conservatives start looking like wild-eyed street corner prophets. We may be right, but no one will listen.

Trolling is fun.

I'm sure his cardboard cutout would be just as useful as the other UN representatives.
 
2009-09-25 05:40:51 PM  
Well I did see him over 36th and 5th last year.

LOL! You can see his thumb shift position though. Still funny.

Do those Fatheads come with an authentic 3-D mustache?

For some reason on first view of the clip I focused on his hands and saw his thumbs clearly shift a little in each frame, and wondered what all the fuss was over.

If you take the time to yank the stick from your vagina, it's actually an amusing video clip.

*sigh* Obama will never be as effective in advancing American interests via foreign policy as was his predecessor.

Uh, huh. The Hot Air butthurt never stops.
 
2009-09-25 06:21:03 PM  
Oh. My. God.

What was amazing was how Obama stayed the same while all the other people changed.
 
2009-09-25 06:48:57 PM  
What the fark??? How is it possible that someone could look mostly the same in a bunch of photos taken in the same place from the same angle??? Inconceivable!
 
2009-09-25 06:57:17 PM  
I bet if you did the same thing to me at my wedding, it'd turn out exactly the same. After smiling and posing for enough pictures you kind of freeze that way.

Political leaders pay extra attention to their body language also.

That's kind of uncanny.

I bet he has one of those back-of-the-head headaches you get after the fourth hour of fake smiling at a little kid's birthday party.

It would be funny if there was a picture of him walking out of the UN with a tiny cardboard plate wrapped in tinfoil and some leftover pudding in a bag.

They aren't expressing outrage over this. The butthurt one is you.

I wanted to get the Superman Obama cardboard cutout I saw at a record store, but I couldn't figure out how I would get it on the plane back home.

FTA: "Well, if this isn't an analogy for an empty-suit presidency, nothing will suffice."

Nope, sounds like they are butthurt.

He is posing in photos. He truly is a 2nd Hitler.
 
2009-09-25 08:46:06 PM  
That was hilarious!

I guess you do enough photo ops in your life, and you just assume the position. I'm sure other politicians got the same thing going on.

Done in two.

FTFA: Well, if this isn't an analogy for an empty-suit presidency, nothing will suffice. It's too good to be true and so almost certainly isn't...

Because he has a standard photo-op smile?

Really?

You're all butthurt about his presidency over his photo-op smile?

/Reports are coming in that a second Dijon-mustard arugula missile just hit the Pentagon.

Proving yet again that liberals have absolutely no sense of humor.
 
2009-09-25 08:58:49 PM  
I wish Obama would just look the camera straight on and say "We're going to take all the guns and women away from the hard-working white men and hand them over to illegal immigrants". All this WHARRGARBL over absolutely nothing is losing its novelty.

You must be projecting. Let me guess, you didn't find that video amusing and my picture that suggests there are people who get upset over any criticism of Obama ironically offended your tender sensibilities. Sound about right?

Did you know there was an article associated with the video, which painted Obama as an empty suit? I can understand if you didn't, seeing as how you did find the video amusing.

There was nothing mean or malicious. It was just quite amusing.
And they still get their panties in a wad.

Don't worry they'll counter with PJ O'Rourke soon enough. At least they have stopped pretending Dennis Miller is funny.

I am amused by the video. Don't try to snap the olive branch with this nonsense, please.
 
2009-09-25 09:23:53 PM  
Christ, this is some stupid shiat. Yeah, it's funny, but admit it, the fact that it's on HotAir instantly politicizes it.

I do the same thing at big functions where I'm having my picture taken a lot. (Which, of course, are few and far between - I'm no celebrity.) After a while your muscle memory instantly goes, "Picture time again? Here's my pose."

Anyways, in conclusion, this is both interesting and stupid.

President Obama, we understand you could not make it to our function due to current economic concerns, but we feel more than a little insulted you didn't assume we could tell the difference between yourself and a piece of cardboard. Despite not noticing for the first 45 or so minutes, we'd like to think ourselves smart enough to notice these things. And having Biden walk around with his arm wrapped around said cutout and ad-libbing for you doesn't help you're cause. The president of Poland was very confused as to why you're lips never moved when you spoke, we believe you owe him an apology.

yes, I will call the site nothing else in the future.
