Fail. Yahoo Readers Not Very Impressed With Obama’s Command Center Photo-Op

President Downgrade cut his vacation short to make an appearance at the Hurricane Command Center for a few pictures yesterday.

Apparently, not everyone was impressed with this obvious publicity stunt.

    I have seen this same picture of Obama somewhere else. The exact same one.

    I believe it was Photo shopped.

  • Midwestengr

    I believe the combination of his knowledge in emergency preparedness/response and being POTUS wouldn’t fill a thimble.

    You’ve definitely seen that look on his face before. That’s the look he gives someone when they try to explain to him there’s only 50 States in the U.S.A. and not 57.

  • Tru

    If the golf course weren’t flooded that’s where he would be.

  • Patty

    Photo-op, more like Photo-Shop. Obama has advisers who are trying their darnest to put a spin on a Presidency that is spinning out of control.

  • Patty

    sort of like a deer in headlights.

  • avery

    Why didn”t he lower the “SEA”.

  • Comanche Voter

    Hey folks. Obama delivered on his campaign promise. He personally turned Irene from a Cat 3 to a weak Cat 1 storm. Don’t you recall his words, “Let it be said that this is the day the oceans stopped rising”–or some similar drivel.

  • Major Kong

    The pic really seemed more like a photo snapped at a “Take your child to work” day.

  • Ginger

    Every time he opens his mouth he keeps the “Sleeping Giant” awake…so keep it up you kenyan fraud. Hey Soetoro why don’t you pack up your moose and girls and move back to your home land kenya you will be so adored there? Take all of your muslim and communist friends with you and may Soros have a burial at sea and the sharks have a big fat feast so you will never be seen again you evil SOB.I would say the reverse but ……………

    May God protect America from the EVIL within!

    its 12:00 here in new jersey. the sun is shining, clear skies, no rain and a nice breeze. but the state is shut down because of the power mad manic in trenton. i voted for that guy to be governor, not emperor. if i would have wanted a dictator i would have voted for the democrat. bloomberg must be his hero.

  • Patty


    Yeah! lol! What happened there!

  • Major Kong

    Still, you have to kind of appreciate the irony of a big, blow-hard, gas bag appearing to be in charge at a hurricane center.

  • Ginger

    Tommy…is Bloomberg republican?

  • dunce

    Pressuring weather reporters to put politics into forecasts is making professional meteorologists appear incompetent and causing people to over react common events.


    oblunder the POS…good riddance in 13 months

    I believe I saw on the news either last night or really early this morning, he had an (I) after his name.

  • NeoKong

    Uh hoh my god….he looks like a little kid who is seeing a balloon for the first time.

  • Ginger

    Thanks Midwestenger…I always thought he was a demo-rat. He sure is a rat though.

  • I wonder why Yahoo has taken down this post when other news stories posted prior to this one are still showing.

    With all the negative posting (for Obama), do you think it was taken down for this reason?

  • Fu#kObama

    You know Messiah Obama is all about taking credit for something he had nothing to do with.

  • Midwestengr

    #18 NeoKong

    Or maybe the look is because one of his aides told him something like this:

    Sir, we collected some of your personal belongings from the WH in case we had to evacuate due to the storm. We found a very interesting document from the state of Hawaii!

  • Betsy Ross

    Who’s idea was it to give the guy a PINK microphone?

  • DittoGirl

    Bloomberg was a Democrat, switched parties to Republican to run for Mayor, then realized he couldnt hide the fact that he was a Liberal anymore, so switched again to Indie.

    No one with a brain believes he is anything but a Liberal Democrat trying to hide it with an R or an I. He’s not fooling anyone.
    A lifelong Democrat before seeking elective office, Bloomberg switched his registration in 2001 and ran for mayor as a Republican, winning the election that year and a second term in 2005. Bloomberg left the Republican Party over policy and philosophical disagreements with national party leadership in 2007 and ran for his third term in 2009 as an independent candidate on the Republican ballot line.

  • And to add insult to injury, he is a COMPLETE FRAUD…a Usurper! Who is allowed to stay in the office, because The Ruling Class does not want to create ‘any trouble.’

    Not that many people seem to care anyway.

    He took charge and Irene was immediately downgraded to a Tropical Storm. The nation may have found something of use for him to do yet! Send him to NOAA.

    Old Dude,

    He took charge and Irene was immediately downgraded to a Tropical Storm.

    Probably has something to do with one area of hot air will absorbed the weaker of the two.

  • Rock

    Old Dude,

    Forgot to add, good observation.

    Update on the comments…The Libs are staying out of this article.

  • Jayne on the left coast

    When Yahoo runs a story on the one these days the comments are hysterical, 99% anti the one. I love reading them and getting a feel of what people think of this fraud. If this is any indicator of the 2012 election it will be a landslide like Carter/Reagan.

  • jainphx

    Gulianni took a crime riddled city back from the criminals! Bloomberg took the criminal use of salt and trans fats, and the right to pray in cemeteries and at the 911 memeorial, away from those “crooks” that use salt and pray. Is he a dictator want to be?

  • saveus

    he’s the man

  • Mannie

    He’s at the command center? Are the greens playable already?

    He looks like a Jr High kid explaining how the dog ate his homework.

  • jainphx

    With this poser in the White House, the country is in an uproar. We have criminal “raves” stealing from privately owned stores in large numbers, and what if anything is done.

    When the Attn. general openly states that he will not prosecute “his people” it gives the criminal element carte blanc. Union thugs tare state houses apart without fear. I think back on the days of that evil GWB, and wonder how we have fallen so far so fast.

    #1 Patty, I think it may be a photoshopped WH photo- while he’s watching a basketball game in the WH movie room…? Look at the woman seated behind him – the seating looks like a small auditorium…

    Click then scroll down. I don’t believe he was there at all. But who knows and who cares, really. At this point, we all know he was photo shop in the Gulf.

    You are fortunate. I have friends in Jersey who were watching their basement flood this morning and the street out front under water.

    These storms are never to be trifled with, I know, I live in Florida and we take them all seriously.

    the yahoo readers obviously missed Obama’s appointment of Ninja Storm Hurricane Command Megazord to the post of Hurricane Czar:

  • pjean

    Thank goodness someone Obama was in control of this thunderstorm command.

  • Stuart

    Trouble on the horizon. A massive, deadly hurricane threatens America.
    But wait, could it be.
    It’s Captain Storm ready, willing, and able to calm the tempest, reduce the sea level, and return the free world to to the sunny uplands of peace, calm, and … all that other stuff.

    You know that his little NOAA visit will enable his minions to say that he’s entitled to the vacation he’ll take in Sept or Oct because his Aug vacation was canceled when he was called back to work. Unlike the rest of us, who would have had to finish our vacations at home if evacuated from our vacation destinations due to weather conditions, Barky and his family will get a do-over.

    It is amazing all the tings that go into a community organizer’s training. First, you have to learn how to read a teleprompter. Then you have to become an expert on auto design and take over the auto industry. Then you can take over health care. Then you can spend $1 trillion and accmplish not a thing-which is very hard to do.

    Now it turns out he is on the job changing weather patterns and handing out more tax payer dollars…

    What a guy….What a man. What a moron. What an imbecile. What a horror….

    Lots of fun reading all the negative comments about chairman zero.
    His idiotic speech this afternoon was more waste of space and air.

    He looked utterly stupid trying to be a weatherman, on top of all his other BS.
    He’s not qualified to talk about hurricanes, except that he is the biggest blowhard on the planet.

    To the naysayers: My question is, what should he have done? Should he have not reacted for weeks like Bush did to New Orleans? Should he have sat there in a chair for minutes while planes crashed into the Pentagon, the Twin Towers and a field in PA? Or should he get us mired in two wars that will have to be taken over by the next president while proclaiming that the mission is accomplished. Oh, sorry, those are all the things BUSH did.

    You idiots will never be happy with anything our current president does because he’s the wrong color and the wrong party. Grow up and put on your big girl panties. He’s our president. LIVE WITH IT.

    I drove up from Charlotte to Allentown, PA on Saturday night/Sunday morning, and I can say that it was no picnic out there. Those flashes in the sky weren’t lightning, but rather exploding electrical transformers, most especially when they produced a green flash.

    Perhaps the answer to the overhyped charge is that NYC is, in fact, a large “black hole” that sucks in everything, including hurricanes.

    But ultimately, Hurricane Irene (from the perspective of NYC) is the perfect metaphor for Barack Obama … lots of hype, followed by failure to perform, laying waste to everybody else on the way there.
