First Photo Released of Obama Taking Charge During Benghazi Attack, 9/11/12

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Here's a guy who gets photographed constantly. They take pictures of him, his shadow, his reflection, his of him in the situation room for bin Laden, pictures of him silhouetted against the sky thinking of Neil Armstrong, pictures of him golfing, thinking about Rosa Parks, thinking about the Newtown shooting, filling out his NCAA bracket, ad infinitum, why haven't we seen a single picture from what the Commander-in-Chief was doing 9/11/12, while Americans were fighting for their lives?

As a wise man once said, "How ever could we put these events into perspective without a picture of Obama to accompany it?"*

(Inspired by a photo at Maggie's Notebook. Who may or may not have inspired this bit of Photoshop.)


  1. Proof, I didn't photoshop it - wouldn't know how to do that. I've never thought it was photoshopped, but maybe it was. I've been using it for a very long time now. As you point out, it says volumes. Not only has he cast a long dark shadow on the White House, but on the American people as well.


    1. From the tag I read on it when I searched for a slightly larger version of the photo, apparently it appeared on the official White House blog, presumably taken by the WH staff photographer.

      It does look somewhat pretentious, as if perhaps, it had been 'shopped, but the pretentiousness is Obama's and the White House's alone.

  2. When you posted this I was waiting for the tow truck to fix our flat - on the way to somewhere. I tried using my husband's iPad and screwed this up. So, it's two days late: I'm cursed with an overworked brain - because there is so little to work with :) - on 9/11/12 your AWOL Chief was 1. not in the building, somewhere else with someone other than the little woman; 2. so lit he couldn't think straight, much less give coherent orders; 3. knew what was happening and was willing to risk the fall-out, instead of stopping or aborting the plans he made with someone else, making the death of Stevens, Dougherty, Woods and Smith just collateral damage, and 4. all of the above! I shall change my mind when someone comes clean, maybe.
    He was not there by choice.

    1. Sorry to hear about the car troubles. And better late than never. I personally believe we should think of the worst possible reasons for Obama's inaction and cowardice until he gives an accounting that would lead us to believe otherwise. How bad could it be that it could be worse than we already imagine it to be?
