Obama kisses a baby.



Cute! (It's the 4th of July, and the baby is gripping a flag.)

Can the baby walk now?

I am a gripe fellow republicans.

When I get pizza I want my pizza to have pizza sauce. I do not want chunks of tomato about of the sauce.

This is a pet peeve of mine.

Pizzas should have only pizza sauce on them, finely ground tomato sauce with no big chunks of tomato. No small chunks of tomato or tomato skin either.

Thank you.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

I also appreciate my pizza having a cornmeal base on the bottom of the crust. Like Paisans which is still one of my favorite pizzas in the world.

I don't want a salad on top of my pizza either. Save me the spinach or arugula or lettuce or whatever.

Either I want cheese or maybe mushroom.

Again, thank you so much for your consideration.

Is that one of Michael Jackson's kids?

The Drill SGT said...

another demo that the O is a rookie.

Experienced pols say,

Never ever pick the kid up, it can only go bad. he cries or vomits on your suit. always kiss the kid in mom's arms

al said...

Isn't it kind of dangerous for a baby to a have a pointy stick in his/her hand? It's all fun and games till someone loses an eye.

trained assassin baby plunges flag through o's eye socket deep into his brain...welcome president biden

Original Mike said...

or vomits on your suit. .

Or the flag.

Pres. Obama has a gift of smiling and loving us with his personality. The trouble is that he wants to love us into a fascist Socialism that will make Cuba look like a better place to live.

Patrick said...

He seems such a nice guy. Can't he stick to kissing babies?

Greg Hlatky said...

The baby will now never wash its face lest the sacred DNA of Abraham Delano Fitzgerald Obama be lost.

Jeremy said...

Shouldn't there be a picture taken seconds before of Obama eating the baby?

Original Mike said...

If this kid knew the burden that guy is saddling him with, he would throw up.

Scott M said...

Do a negative development of that picture. Put a white pres kissing a black baby and he would be skewered for "pandering".

Off-topic, or rather on, considering the content of the pic, someone earnestly asked me yesterday, "is socialism so bad?"

Now, the person in question was over 40, so I didn't even know where to begin. For someone in their 20's, I'll humor their idealism a bit and take the time to lay out all the reasons why socialism is bad news. For someone over 40, though, I'm nearly at a loss. One would think the average American over 40 would have experienced enough life to simply be too jaded to be in the socialism corner.

Quayle said...

Original Mike is spot on.

In the picture is a cute kiss.

Out of the picture, is a kiss of slavery and poverty - a kiss of death.

Lem said...

Now that baby will not only roller skate he will roller skate on water.

This is actually a model of the Obamacare Pediatrics plan..."kiss it and make it better"

Jim said...

"Can the baby walk now?"

Original Mike wins the thread.

ElliottA gets 1st runner-up...

Lyle said...

That baby is not holding the flag properly.

Poor Biden will have to go several months w/o coming near a baby lest he be accused of upstaging Obama.

Penny said...

The other guy in plaid, the red plaid, does NOT have a future as a photographer.

Elliott A said...

Thanks Jim!

Hunter McDaniel said...

Ann, you really need the "Obama is like Bush" tag on this one.

David said...

Hey, it's cute--and Obama knows how to do a baby kiss.

Joaquin said...

Take a look at the lady on the left.
"take that smelly, white baby outta yer mouth, you dummy!"

dick said...

Wonder what the girl and the guy in the front with cameras are looking at. They are not looking at Bambi. Probably getting instructions for what they should do next.

ricpic said...

The Anointed One lowers himself to kiss and bless a future bitter clinger.

Lem said...

Obama kiss is code for ACORN not to miss this baby next time.

Freeman Hunt said...

It's cute.

However, why do people want politicians to kiss their babies? I don't want strangers kissing my infant. Why would anyone? Plus, politicians are generally a pretty unsavory bunch and don't seem like the sorts people would feel honored to be kissed by.

Lem said...

Obama agreed that whomever he kissed that would be a signal of Joe Biden replacement on the ticket.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

Oscar Mayer died. I had no idea he was still alive.

I am sorry for yours and Madison's loss Althouse.

My niece has an oscar mayer wienermobile. No lie.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

Who would ever want to be a politician?

I would never want to:

work in an union environment
work in education
work in politics.

I am very for profit, corporate, bottom line, your in, your out, quarterly earnings, kind of person. Also, politicians make shit for money. Although many of them are already rich so I guess 175k doesn't really matter to them. I read Sarah Palin was only making 120k and she will make that in two speeches now. Good for her.

I also demand sign on bonuses, quarterly bonuses, stock options and full relo, including buying my expensive loft if needed. But again that is just how much I am worth.

I despise people who don't make good money.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

If you are not making 100k by the age of 30 you are a failure in my book. Unless, you come from loads of money than you don't need to make lots of money, than you are fabulous.

I sound like Dominick Dunne. He's such a queen.

Original Mike said...

My niece has an oscar mayer wienermobile. No lie.

There was a night, after many Pale Ales at the Blue Moon, when we debated the question, "Would a spin in the Wienermobile be worth a night in jail?". (It wasn't a theoretical question; the Wienermobile was parked for the night down the street at the InnTowner.)

ricpic said...

Everything I kiss is mine mine unto the enth generation, ha ha ha ha ha.

Lem said...

Titus would make a great baseball 'color commentator'.

Quayle said...

Do you suppose that Obama will kiss the Pope's ring?

Jeremy said...

Ann - Why, instead of an inane Obama kissing a baby thread (like a President's never done that before...duh)...is there no BLARING HEADLINE directing the local wingnuts to this?

It's actually very funny and right on the mark:

Blogger Original Mike said..."Can the baby walk now?"

Funny you ask.

The baby immediately walked all the way to Alaska is taking over as Governor.

One crybaby for another.

Jim said...

Jeremy -

I'll save Ann the trouble: the rules of posting here are don't tell what she should be blogging about. If you want to talk about something else, blogger is free of charge for you to go blog elsewhere about it.

Jeremy said...

Jimmy - Oh, okay.

Fuck off.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

Janet Jackson has gained a little weight.

Love her sunglasses and hat though.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

I just pinched a nice satisfying loaf.

The fiber muffies I have been eating really produce some effective and stimulating loaves.

Thank you.

Pogo said...

1) Poor CPR technique there, chief.


2) Once the child is fully inflated, let go and watch it fly around the room as the air escapes.

Lem said...

Back, back, back.. kiss that baby goodbye all the way to China.

Its official

I'm tapped out of Obama baby jokes.

LonewackoDotCom said...

I was standing outside a gas station in Victorville or something one night looking at some sort of motorhome decorated with banners advertising some sort of wholesome event, like they were on a national tour. The door opened and I saw two boots and then a stream began to form on the pavement.

Anywho, back to Obama: maybe Althouse would care to explain why Obama and others can't get their stories straight on which hospital he was born in. You'd think he'd know, right?

ricpic said...

Rasmussen daily presidential tracking poll:

32% strongly approve; 37% strongly disapprove:

-5% baby, -5!

Freeman Hunt said...

I don't know what hospital I was born in.

About Us said...

Looks like a coffee with a little dash of milk. :) I love Obama though.

TitusIsBackFellowRepublicans said...

We don't follow polls Ricpic. They are liberal and unpatriotic.

LonewackoDotCom said...

Freeman Hunt: most people do because it's on all the certs.

To put this in L.A. terms, it's like someone living in L.A. for several years and then saying they were born at UCLA one day and at USC Med Cen the next. Or, getting UChicago confused with UIC. No one who's lived in Chicago would do that. Yet, after living in HI for many years, BHO got confused?

And, both Snopes and Wiki have changed the truth when the newtruth came out.

Also, I need to point this out for any BHO cultists: I'm not saying he wasn't born there, only that no definitive proof has been offered. The reason I cover this issue is because eventually it will help discredit those in the MSM and elsewhere who've lied about this issue.

dannyboy said...

Why does the black woman off to the left look like she's about to cry? Does she thinking kissing a white baby will make Obama lose his soul?

Lem said...

I was born on my birthday.

AllenS said...

When you apply for Social Security, you'll have to have a birth certificate. Also, your discharge papers if you were in the service.

ricpic said...

dannyboy -- bingo!

Jennifer said...

I don't think it's that weird, Lonewacko. Almost everybody in Hawaii (who lives in town) was born at Kapiolani. I can guarantee you that damn near everybody he went to school with at Punahou was born at Kapiolani. He may have just assumed he was until looking into it further.

Beth said...

Freeman, neither do I. All I know is what my mother told me, that it was a small, several-bed, private clinic run by the obstetrician who delivered me, somewhere in Jacksonville, AR. I'm sure it closed many years ago.

I get by nonetheless.

chuck b. said...

I also like a cornmeal pizza crust, but stray bits of tomato do not offend me.

LonewackoDotCom said...

Chunks of tomato are great, just as long as there are no runny parts.

Also, it is a bit odd that those who pretend to know with absolute certainty that BHO was born in HI - as both Wikipedia and Snopes state - would say he was born in one hospital one day and a different hospital the next. Why, it's almost like they're simply reflexive BHO supporters or something.

Jeremy said...

Not that this would be more important than Ann's kissing the baby hype...

But...

Nevertheless, the late-evening stories provide a boost to earlier claims from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she was drastically misled by the CIA when it was briefing members about the Bush administration's enhanced interrogation techniques.

Jeremy said...

President kisses baby.

OH-MY-GOD...

Dust Bunny Queen said...

President kisses baby.

OH-MY-GOD...


No no no ...look close, he is sucking the poor defenseless child's brains out.

:-D

Jeremy said...

Dust Bunny Queen said..."No no...look close, he is sucking the poor defenseless child's brains out."

If one of yours it wouldn't take long would it?

Henry Buck said...

That's just the kind of baby that Justice Ginsburg thinks we need more of!

AST said...

Who could object to that photo?

Well, a lot of us who are sick and tired of having liberals take gratuitous shots at Palin, Bush, Cheney, etc. at every inappropriate moment or occasion on the assumption that the whole nation is relieved to be shed of them.

If that's just fine, then I have no complaints with Dust Bunny Queen making a nasty joke at The One's expense. Thank goodness we still have the freedom to gripe, even if our "leaders" are taking us down some slot canyon that seems to be getting deeper and narrower with every step. Now all we need is a cloudburst.

Chip Ahoy said...

D'oh! Fine. I've got nothing else to Photoshop. Obama and baby.

It means nothing at all. I know he's a good man and genuinely loves babies.

Chip Ahoy said...

The cornmeal on the bottom of pizza crust were spread there to act as ball bearings to slide the dough off the peel when it's inserted into the oven.

Sun dried tomatoes are fantastic on pizzas. So are a lot of other things, but the one thing I object to is the garbage can pizza with so much stuff on it that it's just a big mess. I prefer to keep it simple.

MadisonMan said...

There are reflexive supporters. There are reflexive attackers.

Original Mike said...

Chip Ahoy: Funny!

LarsPorsena said...

He really doesn't have time for this crap. There's the new memorial stamp for Micheal Jackson and the national day of mourning to be shepherded through Congress. Sheila Jackson Lee is calling right now.

showbiz111 said...

I guess that wasn't one of those babies whom Ruth Bader Ginsberg thought the SCOTUS pronounced as subject to eugenics (as undesirable) under Roe v. Wade (until the McRae decision seven years later).
Maybe the kid should have a tshirt saying, "I survived a botched abortion and all I got was a kiss from this individualistic obamessiah"
