Obama Trying to Get His Hands Around Global Warming?

UPDATE: with retraction/apology.

This is the presidential sitcom moment right before both Barack and Sarkozy face front and see their beautiful wives glaring at them.

I think we can skip to the end and award this "picture of the year". I also anticipate more photos of Obama walking Bo by himself in the future. And maybe doing lots of other things by himself. (Which actually does raise the questions of whether Mr. Obama, y'know, occasionally rubs one out before a big speech or something. It might seem obvious that he does, it's just natural, but I could see feeling self-conscious about such things if you're President. And is there really any privacy in the White House? I don't know. If he does, i bet that first one carried some extra tension, or emotion, or something)

But I guess our Ass Commander in Chief won't actually be by himself; Sarkozy looks committed to the role of giggling-sidekick-wingman. Is he not about to elbow Barack, and be like "not bad eh, EH"?

This is TAN, though, and it wouldn't be right if we didn't add a couple more pics of powerful black men where the thought bubble is pre-scripted with a "DAAAAAAM"

Actually Diddy's thought bubble seems like it's more complicated than that.


  1. I can't really tell if the ass is a genuine show-stopper. But Barack is so busted here, and it's not like Michelle is lacking, so feels like it must be impressive.

    usually not sympathetic to celebrities griping about paparazzi but this seems unfortunate. What kinda hater took and publicized this picture? I wonder how Michelle reacts to this kinda thing. Why is this post labeled "postracial?"

    I don't really think it matters how well-endowed the wife is -- people aways look.

    I'm usually not sympathetic to celebrity boohooing about paparazzi but it really seems unfair that this moment should be caught on camera.

    A capture of Jay-Z would be proof that it doesn't matter who the wife is.

    It's called eye-candy for a reason.

    I can overlook President Obama - just this one time. The other two? No comment.

  7. anon #1: i think i added postracial? because even though these are all black guys, i suspect the impulse crosses racial lines. the questionmark makes it a sort of open-ended comment.

    shorter: obama himself is probably not "postracial", but his sentiment in this photo probably is

    Mos def need a "Hall of Shame" for shots like these.

  9. Am i the only person who just think that its hilarious? He looked. So what? As long as she doesn't pop up from under the podium I think we're ok.

    Maybe it's preracial.

  11. I should have included some reference to the perfect booty formula:

    (S + C) x (B + F)/T - V = X(Booty Factor)

    where ..

    S = Overall Shape (“including tendency to droop”)
    C = Circularity, B = Bounce Factor (not to be confused with “wobble”)
    F = Firmness (with perfect being “like a comfy bed”)
    T = Skin Texture
    V = Vertical Ratio (the goal: “on the top-heavy side of symmetrical”)

    now that i copied, i'm kind of amazed it really exists

  12. Gadzooks!!! That formula should earn you a Nobel or a BET award. You know either or. They're like interchangeable these days, no???

  14. Well Obama is in the clear according to the video. Sarkozy and the other hand... This is why I love the French.

  15. I'll be back to see if you rectify your being taken in by DRUDGE and others. I hope you will do the Obama thing and say how wrong you were about that picture. They even mentioned the "Black Blogs" going for the BS!

    Oh come on! Is T.A.N. supposed to apologize for enjoying this harmless apparent presidential, whether he was checking out her ass or not? WTF? Why does it not seem to really matter that Sarkozy was obvious about it? Maybe b/c we expect it from him, but also because he is French, i.e. not a part of our strangely repressive puritanical culture. Everyone looks, and if President Obama was looking at least he gets points for being slick and having plausible deniability! Also, even if the picture altered the truth, why is it a smear? Is it maybe because President Obama as a black man is expected to behave twice as well as a white president so he can retain his "legitimacy" in the eyes of this still racist society? He does such a good job of that usually that even if he did look -- give him a break -- and if the picture was a smear -- well, it's not. It's normal behavior.

  17. I"m persuaded by "What Would Obama Do?"

    he would apologize, just out of respect.

    i have updated the post.

    It's ok. It proved that those guys are not gay.
