Can you children discuss a topic logically? Those pictures are impressive. They were taken and posted online for a reason, they are impressive. That was the intent. Posting bogus pictures in retaliation is small minded.

I think some of us don't see the connection between these pictures and saying Obama was born to be president, at least I don't can't speak for anyone else. There are just as many pictures like these of McCain, Kerry, Gore, etc. But obviously they were never president.

What is the connection? How are these pictures an indication that he was born to be president?

None of my pictures were bogus or doctored. They just don't display the Messiah in a breath taking fashion. But thanks for noticing.

No he speaks well too. That acceptance speech was like... soooooo amazing. I couldn't believe how much better I felt after that, and everybody was soooo united.

Obaaaaaaama sheeple scare me.

Seriously... what's so impressive about them? Or is it just the quality of the photography itself you refer to?

Yes, the pictures are great....but, in my view, the photographer(s) is attempting to paint Obama as some sort of deity. The filtered light behind his image, the expanse of sky behind his lone figure, the rapt attention of the crowd, etc. etc.

Kind of unsettling to me.

They were taken to invoke an emotional response, I'd say they succeeded. Denying that is to be blind. To not be moved by them is a critical response. Same as any advertising.

I believe it's the artistic view of the pictures. How it clearly "portrays" the person the public makes him out to be. The same way his speeches are said.

They are meant to "inspire" the people who support him.

Some are saying he was "born" for this....
I agree because I believe in prophecy.

Some are saying he was "made" for this...
I agree because I believe in the PTB in the background.

I can't agree that he is the right person to lead this country. The creepy alert goes off...call it "spidy-sense" if you will =P
Although I also believe the script is pre-written, we're just here to watch the show.

seriously I'm incredibly glad i was born about an hour north of the US. People bitch and moan about how bad it's been for the last 8 years, someone comes along not only promising change, but with a cound plan to deliver it, and all they can come up with is redneck racist rhetoric, and denunciation of "liberalism". honestly, it's not 1865 anymore. People need to start looking past who they can oppress and start working together toward common goals. like, perhaps finding a way to either save this rock we're slowly killing, or finding a way off to another big rock that can support us until we kill it too.

The commercial is saying "look at me, I look awesome, therefore I will be an awesome president".

If put in words, its immediately apparent how stupid it is, isnt it?

Your opinion, not mine. He's not my president and never will be.


Hmm, how can you say that? He will be (unless not somehow prevented) next president of United States, and assuming you are citizen of US, therefore he's gonna end up being your president - unless you'll apply and receive citizenship in another country. Try France, it's the mini US today


No offense, just trying to figure out your logic.

Sincerely,

Not stupid at all. It worked didn't it? They used his charisma perfectly. Damn good campaigning imo. Say what you will about him he's a helluva politician. He beat the Clintons.

I really have no illusions about Obama... he is a politician... and I do have some serious problems with how he is sometimes portrayed. In fact one of my initial objections to him was that he runs the risk of being a demagogue and that bothers me to no end.

Still I understand the historic significance of both his nomination and win and as such I can see why some idealize him so.... but as with all politicos, those who do will only be disappointed. No politician ever lives up to his promise... its impossible for them to do so.

I will say that he grew on me... from his acceptance speech on and especially in the debates and how he handled himself in the general election.... I was impressed. Just as I was impressed with McCain's concession speech and wish he had run his campaign with such grace and dignity. If he had, while I still wouldn't have voted for him... I could have respected him. As it stood I had no respect for the John McCain of the campaign.

Which is exactly why I do not find them impressive in the least. They are just so much advertising designed to manipulate a response, emotional or otherwise. I find nothing impressive about the pictures themselves or the methods of manipulation they seek to exploit. Maybe you and I define the word impressive differently?

Amazing pictures, its nice to see a politician who wasn't caught in a compromising position for a change, it matters not what others say do or how they act, the right decision has been made.

I have to say one thing, I'm glad the election is over, so glad, maybe now we can go back to doing what we seem to do best? worry about getting the truth out about everything, I've seen so much these past few months, opened my eyes as to how dedicated members are to seeking and sharing truth.

Also opened my eyes about how genuine some are about what they sprout, how people care about each other, and how some just dont give a damn about anyone, but its all done and nearly dusted, and I for one feel so much better about living on our small world, especially with this man leading the way.

Mankind has hope now. a lot of hope.

they're publicity shots, used for publicity, to promote the subject as being a dignified and powerful leader, as intrepid has pointed out they were put on the net for that reason.

they don't mean he was born to lead, they mean that the pictures were taken to promote him as being born to lead.

It's really tough to get a bad picture of Obama
