Default Obama White House loved the magazine cover of him walking on water

Still thinks he's not full of narcissism?...

Obama White House loved the magazine cover of him walking on water

Quote:
Ever since the Obama White House got rid of that colonial era bust of Sir Winston Churchill on-loan from Great Britain, they've been on the lookout for new less offensive art.

Now we learn, thanks to Howard Kurtz on CNN, that Obama adviser David Axelrod made a call to the editor of the New Yorker magazine requesting a copy of the Feb. 1 cover of the magazine showing No. 44 walking on water. (No, not the newly-resurfaced Gulf of Mexico.)

The only stipulation: The cover art had to be autographed by artist Barry Blitt.

Here's the exchange between Kurtz and magazine editor David Remnick on "Reliable Sources":

Quote:
REMNICK: Well, they wanted a signed version of the cover. And, you know, there were other covers maybe they didn't like as well. But I think they got over it. In fact, they got over it a lot faster than some other people.

KURTZ: What did Axelrod's office tell you about Obama's personal reaction?

REMNICK: I think Axelrod and Obama were laughing hysterically over this cover. And the fact to their credit, within a matter of weeks, that they reversed the really sinking trend that they were experiencing, and they passed health care. And the White House certainly reversed its downward trend pretty quickly after that cover. I'm not saying the cover was anywhere near responsible for it.

KURTZ: Well, it's a good thing you didn't have him sinking all the way into the water after Scott Brown's victory.

I just figured out who's behind the oils spill... It's the Cubans. They're trying to pave the Gulf to make it easier to "immigrate" to America. I figure they're probably jealous of teh Mexicans for having a walking path to America and decided to one-up them with a paved hi-way.....

That water's an oil slick now and it's sticking to him.

It's cool someone can laugh at being made fun of. It shows maturity.

You get the respect you give. And if you're a Republican, you b*tch about paybacks being a b*tch. So sorry you're mad your guy is getting the respect you gave ours, Snowflakes.
