Obama Remembers Neil Armstrong with a Big Picture of… Himself

snipe 2012/08/27 02:58:08
When I heard Neil Armstrong had
passed away, it took me a while to hit me fully. I saw people send
messages of remembrance and commemoration, and decided I should do my
own, to show how much respect I have for a real American hero

It is nearly literally the least I could do for someone that symbolized American greatness so thoroughly, and in so many aspects.

You know what I didn’t think to do? I didn’t think to post a picture of myself to remember Neil Armstrong. Never got into my mind that this was a good way to remember his greatness.

But then, I’m not president mompants:

I wonder if he had some
pimply-faced staffer in his twenties write this for him. Did he go out
and take a special picture, or just use a stock photo? Maybe that’s not
even him and they photoshopped some dumbo ears onto a picture of some
other guy…


I found the source of the picture, and just as I suspected, it was a stock photo taken of Obama from their Flickr account. Here is the original, posted a full four months ago:

Wow, president mompants couldn’t even be bothered to take a fresh picture. Classy! What a way for the worst president in recent memory to egotistically dishonor the death of an indisputable American hero…

    How true. Our current situation is a prime example and will not change until we have a major shift in vision.
  • LindaM Rodney 2012/08/30 14:43:33
    You mention Ayn Rand, isn't that the idol of the wanna be VP? Hummm
  • Rodney LindaM 2012/08/31 05:45:48
    Better her then Karl Marx or Frank Marshall Davis.
  • Franklin Rodney 2012/09/01 13:37:23
    I hate that its OK for liberals to attack things they don't read and know nothing about ! Such self imposed ignorance is why America will fall and it will never recover-
  • Rodney Franklin 2012/09/01 19:38:41 (edited)
    At least Ayn Rand is writing from experience and not propaganda like so many of today's Pro-communist writer and teachers do.
  • Franklin LindaM 2012/09/01 13:36:23
    You should read some of her books before making up your mind about her writings - fact is that George Orwell was a communist but his insights into how government can gain power over individuals is as true today as it was when he wrote it . Ayn is also a very odd woman in her world view (not average or common) but she did put in print some things that will always be true and will always repeat in the history of human events.
    Don't just be an average liberal who blindly believes everything your party tells you ...read it for yourself and then if you still feel its "wrong" and "evil" you will have a point ....right now you are just making yourself a tool of "Big Brother"

    "Neil's spirit lives on in all the men and women who have devoted their lives to exploring the unknown...."

    ...says the man who gutted NASA.

    It seems like you have a lot of time on your hands. Try a new hobby, maybe?
  • snipe Warren ... 2012/08/27 03:25:40 (edited)
    It is what it is. And besides, exposing the Leninist fraud obama IS my hobby.

    Somebody posts a picture of himself on social media and that makes him a Leninist fraud? Can you be sure he is not a Stalinist fraud or perhaps a Trotskyist fraud? Would you know the difference, or are these justscary words to fire up the knuckledraggers?
  • snipe Warren ... 2012/08/27 03:40:38
    Guess you didn't check out the two photos posted in the article, huh? All you did was comment on the headline and you should know by now that that's a no-no. Naw, Leninist suits him just fine, thank you.
  • Franklin snipe 2012/08/27 13:17:31
    liberals never let facts or reality get in the way of their burning hatred for their chosen enemies - Facts are the last thing any liberal will ever use as they always go against them!
  • snipe Franklin 2012/08/27 14:16:30
    Ain't it the truth!
  • Warren ... Franklin 2012/08/27 15:01:07

    Yet the burning frothing hatred over a social media page picture of Obama and a telescope is perfectly rational. LMAO!!!!
  • Franklin Warren ... 2012/08/30 10:51:29
    you would know what HATRED looks like you are its image and a big fan of its use for your own goals....I say Obama is an arrogant ass ! you have nothing to say to that charge so you distract and accuse others of invented crimes-

    Franklin, the only one frothing with rage at a picture is you. Get some help.
  • Franklin Warren ... 2012/09/01 13:39:28
    go back to the start of this post your little hater and start over ! this blog is about Obama being arrogant and you demanding that anyone who does not kiss his ass must be "bad" and a hater - your the one defending evil and your the one coming from a foundation of nothing but hate.

    Get some help. All that anger cant be good for you.
  • snipe Franklin 2012/09/02 01:28:06
    He still doesn't get it, but he's stickin' to his story anyway.
  • Franklin Warren ... 2012/08/27 13:16:18
    Obama most often quotes the collected works of Karl Marx as edited by Mr Engels -so to call him a Marxist is just to say you listen to his speeches instead of ignoring the words that come out of his mouth and supporting him based on his skin color and party brand -

    You wouldn't know Karl Marx from Groucho, buddy. Nice use of the race card also. Is that all you got?
  • Franklin Warren ... 2012/08/30 11:04:04
    Your fear stems not from me being wrong , it comes from you knowing that I am right and yet hoping to play your little socialist revolution with out others catching on .You know that American greatness does not come from collectivism and that you are a hate filled troll just as Obama is but you fear the average American waking up to the reality of what he and you are -
    forward ? LOL forward communist
    Let not the average man make heroes of soldiers or men who do great things , force him to make heroes of the average and the common . ...I know the work of Carl Marx but unlike you i know him to be wrong!

    I imagine it was a file photo. Obama worshiping Sin, the Moon god.
  • snipe Red Branch 2012/08/27 03:22:39
    It was. Both are posted above in the article. Under the first one is a tribute to Armstrong and under the second it describes how he's looking at the Moon and Venus before boarding Marine one in April of this year.

    Who originally started cutting funding for NASA though? That was back during BUSH's administration right near the end. Just one more thing that Obama and Bush both are doing that people are blaming Obama for. Blame both for this one.

    Why are you babbling about this stuff unrelated to the topic at hand. The topic is the narcissistic Obama giving Armstrong a photo of himself (Obamaself).
