Ann Althouse: “Damn, Obama looks like James Bond in this picture.” [article title, not her quote]
Says a commenter at the White House Flickr site. Is that what you see? Keep in mind that this is a picture the WH selected and had to have thought flattered the President and furthered his interests:
People who like Obama are blinded to the way other people see him. This picture strongly says cool to people who love him, but it doesn’t read that way to others… including the many, many people who don’t even want a cool President.
“Shaken, not stirred”? Nah, more like “Spin and blame Booosh, not spurred to lead”
