If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

What's Missing From Obama's Press Conference?

What's missing from this picture?  Seriously, what's missing?  Don't see it?  Look at press conferences held by four of Mr. Obama's predecessors...maybe you'll figure it out...






George Walker Bush, 43rd President of the United States


William Jefferson Clinton, 42nd President of the United States


George Herbert Walker Bush, 41st President of the United States


Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States


Have you figured out what's present in the photographs of all of his predecessors but it missing from the background of his?  How about the flag...

UPDATE:  I stand corrected...Mr. Obama is the first President to hold a press conference in the White House with out the precence of an American Flag.  Satisfied?

Updated...he is in fact the 1st president to hold a press conference in the White House without the precense of any American Flags...and he doesn't know which hand with which to salute the flag with either...see the post below!

Obviously untrue. If you look at the link to the page on snopes.com (http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/photos/pressconference.asp), and scroll to the bottom, there's a very clear photo of Ronald Reagan at a press conference in the White House (with the White House emblem behind him), and no flags present.

If you notice, the examples Snopes used were from impromptu, non-White House press conferences. Add to this, that Obama is even more of a criminal than GW Bush! His truth of his tyranny WILL come out!

If you have photo shop blow up the picture and note that the drapes on each side are faded. Someone enlarged and did a very poor job of replacing the colors in each pixal. The only president thus far to hold a press conference without flags was REAGAN.
