Barack Obama Inauguration: Security Team Could Use 'Presidential Doubles'


www.telegraph.co.uk

President Obama is understood to be against the idea of using doubles himself because the tactic is generally associated with rulers including Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong-il of North Korea, Stalin and Adolf Hitler.

But following hundreds of threats to his life already some of those charged with protecting him believe it may become an option.

However, the best known Obama lookalike so far, said he didn't want the job. Ilham Anas, 34, an Indonesian photographer who bears a striking resemblance to the president, said: "I don't want to get shot."

What da?

Anybody heard this one yet?

Has this been done before in America? I got flashbacks to Saddam and all of his doubles.

LOL @ the number one choice being afraid to take the job. I don't know if I'd take that job either, and not just for Obama. I would be even MORE worried to be a double to anyone in the last admin.

Crazy stuff...

Definitely a strong resemblance.

I wonder how much the PTB would pay a person to double a figure head per event, or annually? I'm sure those behind the scenes are not at a lack of monetary funding.

I also wonder now, how many times in the future we may not really be seeing Obama himself at future functions? hmmm....

Back during WW2, Winston Churchill got actor Norman Shelly to deliver a speech for him because he was too busy to do it himself. Kinda similar.
