Default Obama marks Rosa Parks anniversary with picture of himself

President "It's-All-About-Me" strikes again...


Obama marks Rosa Parks anniversary with picture of himself




Quote:
On Saturday, the White House marked the 57th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat by tweeting a picture of Barack Obama sitting in the bus where Parks stood her ground.

"Today is the 57th Anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat," the White House tweeted.

The picture was taken during a fundraising trip in April at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, where the bus currently sits.

At the time the photo was taken, White House press corps photographers were kept on the sidelines, ABC News reported.

“I just sat in there for a moment and pondered the courage and tenacity that is part of our very recent history but is also part of that long line of folks who sometimes are nameless, oftentimes didn’t make the history books, but who constantly insisted on their dignity, their share of the American dream,” Obama told donors later that day.

"Just when you think President Obama’s impossibly large ego can’t grow further, he makes it happen," the staff at Twitchy said.

"President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image," Twitchy added.

In May, we reported that Obama inserted himself into a number of Presidential biographies.

The official White House biography of Ronald Reagan, for example, includes this footnote:

In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.

"God Bless Rosa Parks! Too bad she would be embarrassed by the idiot in her seat," one person tweeted.
I can almost hear him thinking "Who do I get to push under this vehicle next to preserve my glory?"...

OMG! I thought that you meant that he sent out a portrait of himself or something, not that he did a Forrest Gump photo insertion!

I'll bet you guys have thrown so many darts at your Obama targets at home that you can't even recognize it anymore. Here, print this and hang it up so you can start fresh this next 4 years

What a way to twist an honoring of a great woman by the current President. I saw the picture on FB and it said he was at the museum and sat where Rosa Parks sat. I assumed his biographers and photographers shot the picture for posterity. And it was a great picture to shoot for posterity imho.

Jesus. H. , Y'all's little bloggers and no-news news people are so ****ing evil, it puts the taste of molten metal in my mouth just thinking about how evil they are.

And I'm finally sick of feeling sorry for people who believe these Goebbels slants on news.

It must feed some inner need to hurt and crush and lie...and appear above certain "types" ...
never to allow a good thing to rear its head unless it's for your team...why the old team is crusted in barnacles.

I don't think it's so much an honoring of a great woman as much as it is grabbing her proverbial coat tails and hitching a ride on her story. It is a little self centered and totally lacking in humility.

Now if some artist had rendered the picture from his own imagination, I would see it completely differently. But the fact that the President of the United States posed for such a thing as a photo op...that just seems a little tacky to me.
