Perry vs. Obama: Photo Comparison

Their jobs record is not the only difference…
This photo comparison of Governor Rick Perry and Barack Obama is making the rounds on Twitter.

The Politico reported:

David Limbaugh, the conservative author and brother of Rush, tweets an image you’re likely to see again.

A spokesman for Rick Perry didn’t respond to a request for comment on the photo, the origin of which is unknown.

The Obama camp says Barack was not 22 in this photo.

    He looks like your average American 22 year old. I come from a military family (2 brothers and father in the Navy, Marines, and Army, respectively), and I can tell you that they do not bestow any additional prestige to an individual that has worn the uniform. So, what’s the point of the photograph other than to pander to those that assign intelligence, leadership-qualities, etc upon those that have served?

    Like all people, they are just human.

  • Kmacdoula

    When he stops blaming Bush and everyone else for “HIS MISTAKES”…That’s when he becomes a MAN! So I guess he is still a boy in a man’s SUIT!

    “He looks like your average American 22 year old” thats smoking some pcp marijuana and possible wannabe pimp hat. That might be normal in the ghetto of hawaii.
    Your average 22 year old won’t be flying a military jet, not in this generation or even in the previous generations.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Yes, by age 22, Obama had given up smoking reefer and was fighting on the front lines in Vietnam.

  • http://www.brightorangeadv.com bgoldman

    While the overall idea is great, it’s a bit of a cheat. Perry flew C-130 cargo planes, so what’s he doing next to the cockpit of a fighter?

  • Bill Mitchell

    How many people, having met Obama at age 22, would have bet their entire life savings that this loser would NEVER become President one day?

  • Pragmatist

    Perry is clearly what America needs now!

  • myohmy

    Not 22? maybe 13.

  • BS-meter

    …..”The Obama camp says Barack was not 22 in this photo……”

    Nope. He was/is a punk in that photo. Then he was/is a bully. Then he was/is a race hustler. Now he’s a pimp/thug with the full force of the federal government at his disposal to intimidate his dissenters.

    He’s a worthless piece of skin who scammed his way into the White House with the aid of people too stupid, or too lazy to vet him, and too greedy and unwilling to relinquish the free lunch to which they feel entitled, and which he promises to perpetuate.

    Oh, and Jack #7. Your comment (that they do not bestow any additional prestige to an individual that has worn the uniform) might carry more weight if one of your brothers or your father penned it. But…..’Let me be perfectly clear’……I’ll take my chances with someone who has worn the uniform before I will with someone who hasn’t. Especially a charlatin whose sole claim to fame is that of a “community organizer”.

    And again; “…… to pander to those that assign intelligence, leadership-qualities,…..” Pot, meet kettle.

  • MAJ Mike

    #12 — that “fighter” is probably a T-38 used for advanced flight training. I could be wrong, but I believe that all USAF pilots train in T-38’s and are then transitioned to more specialiized training, i.e. multi-engine (C-130, C-141, C-5, etc) or single engine/fighter.

    Regardless of the age of those depicted, it shows a difference. Pilots have a much more sophisticated challenge than sitting in the dorm room smoking dope and pontificating in BS sessions. Pilots engage in pontification over beer or Jack Daniels.

    #11

    Obama was born in the early 60s. The US escalated the conflict in the early 60s and ended in ’73. Obama would have been ~12 years old when conflict ended. His lack of service in Vietnam is hardly a valid criticism.

    #16

    Fair point, but I know my family. My father, a Vietnam Green Beret and a hardcore republican, has officially jumped ship. The sticking point: republican Iowa debate, when all republicans voted to not raise taxes if a 10:1 scenario of cuts to taxes was proposed. If the republicans are losing people like my father, I can guarantee it’s worse.

  • lethargic

    “The Obama camp says Barack was not 22 in this photo.”

    Yeah, he does look younger, maybe 16? And that was his idea of a cool look at 16 … makes him just like the hoods in the neighborhood I grew up in … nuthin’ special …

    That is a T-38 Talon trainer. I have a picture exactly like it, and I went on to fly cargo planes. In the 1996 timeframe the USAF began to transition to tracking students after T-37 training, and only those going on to fly fighters or bombers flew the T-38. Up until that time everyone flew T-38s. They were the fastest-landing aircraft the Air Force had (still are) and the Air Force figured if you could land a T-38 you could land pretty much anything.

    So, not a cheat at all.

    I entered the Naval Aviation program in April, 1970. Only 10% of applicants were selected. Less than two-thirds of our class received wings.

    In my entire military and civilian career, I have never encountered a more universally competent and professional group of men as during the years I spent in carrier-based squadrons. When I got out of the Navy, I was stunned at the lack of competence and professionalism in business.

    While many civilians will not fully appreciate the significance, to those who have been there, this picture is worth it’s weight in gold.

    Jumped ship to what??!!

    And you seem to be confirming my point. Regardless, if your father has become disgusted with the Republicans, he certainly can’t find anything on the other side more appealing, can he?

    I quit college in ’67 and enlisted in the Marines beause I couldn’t stand what was going on on the campus. You can’t possibly understand because you didn’t live it. As a Viet Nam vet, your father and I could converse, and although we may not agree, we would still respect the other’s perspective. I would trust him, even as a stranger, far out of proportion to anything…..(anything!)….. that Obama might bring to the table, for this reason. Obama is a flawed human, and has demonstrated as much all his life. People who have worn the uniform at least demonstrated some positive character–yes,, even those with whom I served who may have stood before a judge who said to them…..”Well, what’s it going to be, son? Ten in the Pen, or four in the Corps?”

    #24 MC is spot on as usual. Tax hikes ALWAYS happen, the promised spending cuts NEVER do. Just ask Ronald Reagan. Anybody who still believes in any politician’s “promise” to cut spending in future years is a FOOL. That’s why the Republican primary candidates did not bite on that illusory 10:1 illustration that was floated up. Why not 100:1? or 1,000:1?? #21, do yourself a favor – listen to MC and keep your powder dry.

    Not sure what you’re arguing with. I DID concede your point. You are correct that he does not find a suitable candidate in the right. It is a defacto switching of parties due to a lack of valide candidates on the republican side.

    On a side note, my dad enlisted right out of high school for the special forces. His thought was that he would probably get drafted anyway. So he saw it as a way of taking charge of fate. Almost completed his tour, but took some serious grenade shrapnel damage in his leg and was sent home.

No one never says anything about him using a dead man’s SSN from Connecticut. And folks compare him with Perry? A real ligit American? Democrats are so, so racist against ANYONE who is WHITE-they are true racists; schools, jobs, anything is always about them being RACIST against WHITE republicans, if your black, Asian, Hispanic, Indian, any race or color and a REPUBLICAN your white and hated by the democrats!

    I am a tax professional and those stories are completely false. When you file your taxes its settle up time. If IRS has more of your money than they say you owed then they send the extra back to you. If they do not have enough of your money then you have to send them more. Most people did not even notice the few dollars extra they took home during the year. But at settle up time when they did not get as much back as they were expecting or they had to send IRS more they were very aware then.

  • KS_Patriot

    From this link – http://theobamafile.com/ObamaEducation.htm you start to get the idea about where the “Change” part of the Hope and Change theme comes from.

    “Obama studied the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis in Political Science classes at Columbia University.

    The Cloward-Piven Strategy is to overcommit government, growing it past the point of sustainability by causing crises. This, while developing an organized proletariat of dependent classes and applying them to disrupt society and revolt against American freedoms. All, to ring in the new “egalitarian” (neo-Marxist) state. That would be a big “change.””

    Here is more on how Obama has used the Cloward-Piven strategy during his Acorn days.

    #44 yeah… he was sonar buey guy. His first base assignment out of Pensacola was in Hawaii (lucky SOB). Clinton closed the base and he was moved to WA. He enjoyed the fighters, but figured it would be easier to become a commercial pilot having experience flying the larger craft. Alot of his friends went on to fly tomcats out of VA Beach. Guess it panned out. He flies for one of the airlines now.

    #46 That sounds awful.

    Given the choice, I’d take Perry. I support Cain, but if he doesn’t start to catch on fire soon, he’d support the ‘Pub candidate. What we do not need is a third party Trump candidacy…ala Perot or John Anderson, which would put Obamao back in for 4 more lonnng years.

  • MAJ Mike

    #25 — thanks for the update on USAF training aircraft. Hadn’t considered the T-37, but I’m just a former 11Bravo10 who went to OCS.

    Still, a T-37 is a hotter vehicle than anything THE WON has ever piloted. Remember, the fighter that G.W. Bush flew had the well-known bad habit of exploding in mid-air. Takes bigger juevos to run something like that to ride a girl’s bike at Martha’s Vineyard.

  • Rock

    It does raise a question for me, at one time in this nation if applying for a job in law enforcement, or fire department use of so called recreational drugs could very well disqualify you for service, hard core drugs where a automatic dead end. Now look what sits in the Oval Office of one of the most powerful war machines in the world, that should scare the living shi^ out of anyone Left or Right.

    You’ve been missing the point, all along. The difference in the pictures has to do with accomplishment. That point is valid. Unfortunately for all of us, BO’s only public accomplishments are 1) getting elected President and 2) prolonging our current unemployment problem.

    That’s sad. I did not vote for BO because I didn’t like the pattern of divergence between what he was saying and what his campaign was training is volunteers to say in Maryland. However, I really did expect a BO administration to draw upon the experienced capable people in the Democratic party on par with those who had served in the Clinton administration, thereby resulting in reasonably good economic advice and workable economic policy.

    The weird thing is, our military was able to convince him, but his civilian advisors are all drawn from the Zbigniew Bzrezinski (yes-he’s foreign policy) – quality crowd, a bad combination of Jimmy Carter policies and Tom Daschle aides.

  • USMC CAPTAIN

    I have seen Obama’s picture before, it was taken after his first 2 years of college at Occidental College in L.A.. It was taken the year that he was hanging out in L.A. doing drugs before going to Columbia University on a “foreign student” scholarship! So he might have only been 20 or 21 at the earliest but I would believe Obama’s camp to tell the truth about anything!

    Perry is standing next to a T-38 trainer that all Air Force pilots flew in the second phase of flight training before being assigned to what ever they would fly as their primary air craft. It is a standard press release photo.

    However, the pictures do show that at approximately the same age Perry has it together as Obama does not. To date nothing has changed!

  • Old Fan

    Well Mr. Hoft, we know Mr. Obama is a disaster.

    But this is a very poor offering from Our conservative side.

    Why?

    Because it again focuses on IMAGE over substance. Of course we know Mr. Perry is excellent, and the Democratic Partisans are awful. We cherish Mr. Perry’s service.

    But the same folly was created during the last Primary, when many clung on to the Maverick’s past image as a POW hero/victim. They foolishly stuck on the image they wanted to see, enabling the very worst – we all paid for it. It was a classic case of not being conservative – not sticking to the facts, record, etc.

    So here we go again, same hyped image – identity game which is going to overtly inflate Mr. Perry, begging for a flop.

    Don’t do it Mr. Hoft. Many produced predictable Palin bubbles, are now doing it again. We have watched the roller coaster go from Palin, to Trump, to Cain, to Bachmann, etc.

    Slow down, get off of the image game, keep a foot firmly planted on the ground, focus on the records, basis, etc.

    Thank you.

    Old Fan, you make a good point, but we can’t forget that image was absolutely ALL that Obama had going for him in 2008. No substance whatsoever, no experience, no qualifications, just the manufactured image of Obama as created by the drooling left-wing media.

    This picture of Obama, looking like a smart-assed good-for-nothing pothead, is a starke counterpoint to the manufactured Obama, and has its place in the campaign equation. It might strike a chord with the “moderates” who have suddenly begun to realize that they elected an empty suit.

    2LT Perry is climbing into a T-38 Talon, a supersonic, twin jet trainer. There is a fighter version, the F5, which was sold internationally. It’s size and performance are very similar to the MIG-21. In Air Training Command, the T-38 was called the great white training aid. Anyone who is interested in military hardware should bookmark the link below. Lots of neat pictures.

    http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/index.html

    As for military experience being a respected line on a resume, it is about the only part of the federal government which functions effectively. After 20 years in the USAF and another 20 in the aerospace & defense industry, I can tell you that if you can hire a veteran or a military retiree, do it. The work ethic alone, instilled in members by all branches of the service, will pay off handsomely. As a young college graduate, the military will give you more responsibility than any company will.

    Combat veterans are owed a debt of gratitude, but not homage. If you intend to make the service a career, you need to go fight somewhere. That what the military does. Combat also develops a level of trust and respect you won’t see in the civilian world. I’m closer to some of the guys I flew with in DaNang than I am to my two brothers. I was a weapon system officer was the F-4.

    Breaking The War Mentality

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the established order in place.

    Not so the Greens. If a group of young, anti-establishment pacifists wiith unusual ideas and uncomfortable answers to hard questions terrifies us more today than Hitler, Himmler, Goering and Goebbels did back in 1933, our terror says more about us than it does about the Greens or the Germans. It indicates that we have failed to comprehend the meaning of Nazism and blind obedience to authority in their full horror, and that we, unlike the Greens, have yet ourselves to learn the democratic lesson that we have taught the Germans so well.]

    The true conservative when you look at voting history is Bachmann… when the media tells me that Bachmann is a joke… then they are telling me who they are most afraid of.

    It’s a no-brainer… Bachmann is the most conservative… Perry has problems… he forced a mandate for young girls and boys to get a gardasil vaccine even though it’s been medically proven the vaccine is problematic. The legislation vetoed Perry’s mandate bill, and Perry over-rode the effort to stop the mandate.

    Rick Perry’s Gardasil Problem

    Perry’s panderingMuch is being of Rick Perry’s support of Israel, which is essential. Loving Israel is great but off topic. Bush loved Israel too, but ultimately did it harm in his concessions to Islamic supremacists. Anytime Muslims and Jews conflict, Jews get thrown under the bus. You cannot appease the annihilationists while supporting their target. We are vetting our candidate now. This is the process. We must voice our concerns now.

    Pamela Geller: Perry’s Problematic PalsPerry has been sucked into the propaganda vortex, and is now wielding his enormous power to influence changes in the schoolrooms and in the curricula to reflect a sharia compliant version of Islam. He is a friend of the Aga Khan, the multimillionaire head of the Ismailis, a Shi’ite sect of Islam that today proclaims its nonviolence but in ages past was the sect that gave rise to the Assassins. Perry has concluded at least two cooperation agreements between the state of Texas and the Ismailis, including a comprehensive program to feed children in Texas public schools and taqiyya nonsense about how Islam is a religion of peace. Another agreement stipulates that Texas officials will work with the Ismailis in the “fields of education, health sciences, natural disaster preparedness and recovery, culture and the environment.” Perry let on that this was all about whitewashing Islam’s bloody historical and modern-day record: “traditional Western education speaks little of the influence of Muslim scientists, scholars, throughout history, and for that matter the cultural treasures that stand today in testament to their wisdom.

    People are attacking Pamela Geller hard for reporting on the above, but their only argument is to call her vile names… they never provide proof that her information is wrong other than name calling.

    Perry and Islam

    [The last four years are a reminder that we could do worse than Bush II, but maybe we could do better. With Perry in the race, the two frontrunners, Romney and Perry will be clones of each other. Two aggressively business oriented governors with no real interest in protecting American manufacturing or resisting the Islamization of America. One of whom looks like a Tea Party friendly populist, but more in style than in substance.

    Perry may shoot a gun into the air, but his rhetoric is the same old Compassionate Conservatism. He may be more authentically Texan than Bush, but the substance of his ideas is the same. NAFTA, education for illegal aliens, and Islam is a great religion.

    Whatever we say and do, he may be the inevitable candidate. The man who merges the strongest points of Huckabee and Romney into one populist friendly package. Who sells a pro-business compassionate conservatism that comes off as a low pain alternative to Obama. But before that it might not be such a bad thing to pore over the details of his record in office.

    Perry is certainly an improvement on Obama. But in a race where Bachmann, Cain, Santorum, Palin and Gingrich have spoken out about the dangers of Islam– everyone is gathering to cheer a man who celebrates it. Is this what the struggle of the last 3 years comes down to? Did we go through all this just to put Bush era policies back into office?]

    and Bush stood strong against Islamists, while Obama positions
    them within and throughout our government, go figure.. *sigh*

    what’s the point of the photograph other than to pander to those that assign intelligence, leadership-qualities, etc upon those that have served?

    I thought it was to contrast the heart of the responsible ‘servant’ with the selfishly indulgent narcissist.

    My guess is BO’s pic is from his Oxy days – Hollywood isn’t far away – and he’d maybe be 19…Can’t imagine him getting away with that hat in Honolulu. Not even in Waikiki…

    DOJ Keeping Islamic Bank Settlement Secret

    [“[D]isclosure of the contents of his testimony would substantially
    prejudice the pending criminal investigation,” Judge Means wrote.

    The criminal investigation involved statutes covering tax
    evasion and conspiracy to defraud the United States by
    IICG.

    “Additionally,” the judge wrote citing the sealed government
    motion, “while IICGB has not been indicted, the ‘investigation
    has been ongoing for nearly four years[,] has continued to
    progress[,] and is nearing a conclusion.'”

    In January, after DMI sought another discovery freeze in the civil
    suit, DOJ prosecutor Corey Smith wrote that, while the government
    requested the earlier stay, it did not need additional time. “The
    Motion also accurately represents my comment that I believe a
    settlement of the Criminal Case with [IICG] criminal counsel is likely
    in the very near future.”

    That appears to have happened. But the Department
    of Justice is keeping all the details secret.]

I will forever love GatewayPundit for not censoring. And it saddens me to see the weaselzip site so restrictive to conservative debate. Apparently ZIP is a Perry supporter which worries me (for the same reasons you mentioned…

    okay, so he was not 22. He was 21 and the smoke in mouth is photoshopped. As is the Law group picture and the picture of obummer sitting on the bench with his grandparents. Photoshopped.

    He sure looks likes some boy I would have stayed well away from and he still is a man child that I would stay away from. Who the heck knows who or what he is??????????

  • injunjoe

    “oblome’s not 22 in that photo”… Well now, we’ll never really know his real age will we….

  • Chunkdog

    Actually, those photos were supposedly taken by a girl named Lisa, when Obama was at Occidental. That would have made him about 20.
    I don’t think we have ever seen a photo of him at 22, because nobody is really sure where he was at 22.
    And since we have never seen a genuine Birth Certificate no one is actually sure when his 22nd birthday really was.
    So maybe he was 22 in this picture.

  • Mama Grizzly

    People: do NOT make the same mistake well-intentioned Dems did with Obama–the “blank slate” phenomenon. In politics, people will PRJECT what they want to see and believe about someone onto that candidate. The candidate is a blank screen and manipulates what he wants people to think.

    I am greatly troubled by what I see conservatives doing with Perry. He is so much of everything everyone wants … they think. In Proverbs it says that to a starving man even bitter things seem sweet–we are all starving for a restoration of sanity and freedom after Obama, but we MUST vet these candidates. There are big problems with Perry.

    The same person who took ONE look at Obama and told me he was the most dangerous man he’d ever seen (Obama’s first or second speech) took a look at Perry and said he’s lying– he’s pretending to be something he’s not, and that he enjoys the game.

    Everyone is projecting their own military experience and values onto Perry. DON’T. Look look look at his ACTUAL record.

    After Bill Clinton we all should be wary of slick talkers.

    Here’s just one problem: Perry tried to order all Texas girls to be vaccinated with Gardisil. He had ties to the pharmaceutical company. So … if there were safety problems the govt would be immune, and my guess is that so would the p company. The legislature voted it out. Big government.

    Other problems are Islamic rewrites of history in Texas curriculum, borders, taxes etc.

    Trust but verify. Don’t be taken for a ride.
