The picture of him does look stretched like they were trying to make him look more of something.
Oh, he does look more "something" alright....
Wearing his usual "Eat Shiite Grin"
All of the above?
I dont get it?
Is it not normal to have pictures of the president in your Embassies?
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.edit on 12/20/2013 by BishopNGreen because: trying to stay on topic

Now I will look in the mirror and except the responsibility of me being an alcoholic and drug addict, because those were the actions of my own doing. But I will not except responsibility for another's actions. I have voted my whole life, I like to think I voted for an honest person. But what normally happens is they say one thing to get in office and then do the exact opposite when they get in office. So when they choose to go against their own words, they own the blame, not me or the others that may have voted for them. That is why I blame them and not myself. And by them I mean both parties all the ones who can't keep their word to the American public. I get what you are trying to say, but I really think it is wrong for one to accept responsibility for another's action. Peace.
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 thought he was white plus 50% black. Does the black half overwrite the white half, since you say he's just black? Perhaps he and others are ashamed of the white part of him? This would explain the extreme racism against whites shown by him, the MSM and everyone else who calls him the first black president, when he is clearly 50% of each race.
