Have they used a fisheye lens for that photo? Blimey, his nose looks bigger than the rest of his face combined.

Even Obama at this point knows he is the most failed president in history, all he and what supporter's he has left have is to rub him in everyone's face out of pure self hatred for becoming such a fail.



No, Bush jr is worst president in US history by far

No offense but is this a race to the bottom?

Naw.. I could at least laugh at some of the stupid sh#t Bush said. Everything thing that Obama says just makes me wanna punch him out.

I am no fan of any president since Kennedy but I am drawing a line here. If you want to blame an individual for the mess that the U.S.A. has become, blame yourself. You let this happen, I let this happen. The time for blame and finger-pointing has come and gone. Those who continue forward with the "blame him/them" course of logic become just another part of the underlying, corroded foundation upon which the house is collapsing.

Take a step away from the two party, us vs. them mentality and find a mirror. Blame the rube staring back at you. I blame myself and if you are man/woman enough then you'll do the same. Once we have all done that, we can start to fix our dilapidated, dessicated country from our crumbling infrastructure to our emaciated freedom.

But, if you are weak and point the blame towards someone other than yourself, then you are a coward...a festering weakness that needs to be cauterized or removed. The truth hurts but it can set you free.

On topic, I would have to say the other portraits are more indulgent in that they are full body portraits and to find Obama's headshot narcissistic is, perhaps, a projection of one's own insecurities. But really they are the work of artists and therefore any indulgences, emotions expressed, or any other peculiarities are their creation and not to be attributed to the subject.

Black and white...Interesting.

Is it just me, or does he look different? Almost like they tried to make him look more..Historic..
I made a comparison here to show the differences..



edit on 19-12-2013 by kx12x because: (no reason given)


It does not look like him, it looks like a composite of himself and someone else.
My first thought on seeing it was, that is not even him.

I think they added some of his Father into his portrait.

I'm the last one to make Obama excuses but, it is a tapestry rather than a photo so that would explain in part a resolution difference. If there were "enhancements" it was probably Bush's fault.


Tapestry done today look totally realistic so that would not be the reason for the difference.

You may love him, you may hate him but no matter what you think if you can just place your political views on hold for one moment and look upon the most ridiculous thing that I have seen all week.




You just can't believe that this president is so incredibly tone deaf as to allow this. Now I know what you're thinking, "its not like Barry personally orders the interior decorating a US Embassy". Call me a crazy but I believe the word goes out and the word gets implemented far better than Obamacare. Remember the Obama book Dreams from my Father? Do you remember that it was purchased by the government?



Not had time to read the whole thread,but has anyone noticed the obvious symbolism at work in this photo?

See the Pyramid above the Pres?
See the light in the position where the eye atop the pyramid would be?
See the slightly off center perspective of the photo-bending slightly to the left(look at the table legs)?

I am not usually to go for that kind of stuff,but this time it stood out to me.
Hmmm.

All I saw was a narcissistic man who follows the ideals of Fascism, Socialism and Progressivism.

Never realized he was black.



Yeah the only color Obama is about is the color of green, as in money, someone elses./

Not much substance to him at all.

Been paying attention to the last 5 years ?

More war.more spying,more drone killing,more debt, government is bigger, and more powerful.

Since there is little difference between Bush and Obama if any that makes the 'great savior of the republic.

The worst in US history.

Good question , but partizan issues aside , i think Bush jr 8 year mandate is far far far ahead in this race to the bottom.

I'm paying attention , Obama is not a flower either but Bush ? Really ?

Patriot act, two major long wars with ground troops, biggest economic crisis in last 80 years .All in his mandate. I think in next 100 years US will not have that kind of president either Rep or Dem.

Patriot act, tw


Try looking up the omnibus counter terrorism act of the Clinton Era.

www.washingtonsblog.com...

Then try looking up the FISA act of 1978.

en.wikipedia.org...

Then pay no attention to the expansion of those by the current adminstration.

But really why let facts get in the way of dogma.





biggest economic crisis in last 80 years


That began with Clintons ending of Glass steagall.





That aint ALL on Bush as a few people like to place blame on.


'Two wars'

Wow... Is there anything they don't retouch to absurd extremes in Photoshop in this White House? I mean, it's everything! How many publicity pics have been torn up over 5 years over small things showing the same funny business?

Every photo is retouched these days. Every...single...last...one, IMO. That was one of the first lessons in college photography and stacks of newsstand magazines to prove it by examples. That isn't what I mean. It's also a 101 course level lesson that a LITTLE goes a LONG WAY in editing and these ham fisted cartoonists aren't editors but designers with how they mod White House imagery.

It's getting a little silly to outright stupid on things like this, IMO.

the first black pres, you should all be proud considering your past. It's not 40 years ago you were still treating blacks liek the scum of the earth. The you es version of aparthide.


I find the sentiment interesting. The US is constantly chastised over the slavery issue because the US got rid of it a couple of decades after the British, who brought the whole thing over here to support the colonies in 1619, well before the US was a country, and embedded it in the culture for 150 years. So the US becomes a country and suddenly the whole thing is the fault of the US. And as far as treating Blacks "like scum" you say that as if it never happened elsewhere. Of course it did, but nowhere is the economic standing of Blacks better than it is in the US today. It's not as if in your country blacks have achieved parity, is it?

In other words, despite all your criticism, you've done worse. It's the pot calling the kettle black.

Just because you say it does not make it true except in the liberal mind set.

Lets see your facts to back your opinion.

If the White House gets a look at your photoshop effort you may be in danger of a job offer. They may even create a title for you; Imperial Duke of Photoshop. Well played!
