Meh.

And if Obama hadn't gone and visited the hospital, the GOP bloggers would be calling him 'distant and insensitive'.

That girl looks pretty happy to be hugging Barack.

If that was Bill Clinton both those girls would be pregnant.

You give them way too much credit. The terms would be more like "abdication of duty" "Ignoring real Americans" or "too busy selling out America to the UN (or the Muslim Brotherhood) to bother with Americans suffering".

Ok, I lol'd at this comment:

The funniest thing is how lovely and healthy the lady in the bed looks despite some of her lifesaving machinery being moved out to make room for Barry's teleprompter.

All that's missing is a comment on 57 states.

Cut him some slack. The poor guy needs a hug after finding out the Department of Labor's employment projections for the rest of the year.

Well, I absolutely can't stand fake outrage or conspiracy theories, but there is something about this photo that troubles me. Actually, there are several somethings. I just want to be clear that I'm not making any accusations here, though. I just want to take a moment to point out a few things. My hope is that there are easy explanations.

I'll start with Obama himself. Now, I'm not expert in photo analysis, but if you follow the line of the young girls's shirt where it presses up against Obama, you'll see some strange goings-on. It appears, in fact, as though a part of the young woman's chest is actually cutting into Obama himself...almost as if she were superimposed on him. Notice that his hand on her back is slightly raised, and yet the shadow his hand casts only appears to match the lower half of his hand...this despite the fact that you can see overhead lights reflected in the window. Direct source overhead light would cast a much more direct shadow, and I'm not even really at this point getting into an analysis of the lack of shadow cast by Mr. Obama's head.

I would also direct you to look at the girl's arm, where it's wrapped around Obama's waist. Imagine that arm fully extended...does it not appear as though it would drape well past her knee? It seems to me, although I'm not an expert, that someone has used visual effects to extend the arm. Notice Obama's left hand, the way it appears to be gripping her elbow. Who hugs like this? If this were a real hug, his hand would be higher up on her bicep, or perhaps around her waist. It appears, in fact, as though Obama's hand is positioned for a handshake, which leads me to wonder if perhaps his profile here has been "cut out" from another picture.

And our president is notoriously a very thin man. He's a basketball player, after all. Look at his profile, though -- does it appear as though he's heavier than normal? I'd estimate the man shown in this photo to weight at least 15 or 20 pounds more than the president, which makes me wonder -- what if this isn't actually Obama at all? What if it's a stand-in? Could the people in this photo be part of a cover-up of some sort? A fraud? Was Obama ever actually in this hospital? And when have you seen a hospital with walls of that color, a brown/orange blend? That's very rare, at best. And this woman has a single room? What's the likelihood of that happening?

Anyway, I'm not trying to sound paranoid, but it seems like there might be more to this picture than meets the eye. I just want to put the questions out there; I truly hope this is all nothing but idle speculation.

You need to get your sarcasm detector fixed, bro. This is Wonkette. It's essentially a hipster politics blog. Every comment is deep fried in sarcasm and dunked in a side cup of snark.

Far less controversial than when Cheney made Condi wear sackcloth and call him "Massa."

That hug cost American taxpayers $100 million per second. Not to mention the cost of Secret Service making sure the cute chick with short shorts wasn't hiding a knife in her cleavage.

Sarcasm detectors just don't last long these days. I think the last time mine was working was shortly before the chickens-for-healthcare lady in 2010.

If Clinton had been in that theater and had a gun, this never would've happened.

Also, the gun would be pregnant. With his sperms.

I have no idea. I do know that the President has had a hand in the closing of Michoud, the pending closing of Avondale, and pretty much overkill on the restrictions on oil field work down here. So, sure, I'd be happy to see him go. I'll be voting third party, most likely. Again. Romney is about as exciting as a bowl of room temperature tapioca pudding.
 
2012-07-24 04:25:15 PM
Romney stopped by and let them know that they wouldn't be needed back at work. Because of their diminished productivity due to these unfortunate events, their jobs have been shipped to india.
 
2012-07-24 04:25:41 PM
The right seems pretty farking nervous about this.

I like that they still hold on to the "Fast & Furious" "Obama sold guns to Messicans in order to pass new gun control laws" as gospel. Like we need to involve Mexico to highlight gun violence. Wait a few weeks, we'll have a new massacre.

Clinton was more careful than that. No embarrassing love children popping up to derail him, a la John Edwards.
