Photos at Age 22: Barack Hussein Obama and James Richard “Rick” Perry

My friend and fellow Fedora aficionado Peter “Da Tech Guy” has an interesting take on a story in Politico about this picture but Politico failed to post the picture in question.

That fact did not escape the sharp Yankee eye of Da Tech Guy. Politico didn’t publish the picture because it makes Obama look bad.

Good catch, Peter!

Check out Da Tech Guy’s post. (And also look for the link to his Radio Show.)

    Why does this make Obama look bad? He's just standing there. Why do some people try to make something out of nothing?

    • Ian says:

      I can almost guarantee that when Rick Perry was getting some R & R during his air-force days he was probably smoking a cigarette and carrying himself casually too. Conversely there is probably a photo somewhere of Obama wearing a suit at 22 and looking distinguished. Why is a picture that was taken in a formal setting being compared to one that was taken in an informal setting. Apples and Oranges folks………I find it interesting how some people can derive such vindication from two photos that ineffectively qualify as comparable. Why not discuss the Gentlemen's merits at 22 instead? Don't get me wrong, I support the spirit of criticizing our leaders. After all that's a fundamental principle of democracy….but can we at least do it from a logical platform? Comparing two things without homogeneity is unscientific, illogical and futile when searching for the answer to who these two men really are and which one is most competent and worthy of the Presidency.

      • Tom White says:

        Interesting thought, Ian. But I believe that the two photos accurately portray the inner being of both parties. Obama, the guy who takes "his" and "hers" jets at taxpayer expense to lavish vacations, and goes on a bus tour where he actually flies the armored bus from stop to stop because he is too good and elite to actually ride on a smelly bus; juxtaposed with the inner discipline and "boots on the ground" working man, rugged Texan image of Perry.

        Obama "grew up" to become an elitist, "fly" – too cool for you – jerk and Perry is a "down to earth" fighter, like most working class Americans.

        The two photos are philosophical optics, my man. Think a bit more in the abstract for the full effect. Perhaps a bit of whatever Obama is smoking will clear things up for 'ya.

    Ron Paul guy myself….. but that that photo screams volumes.

  3. LockesChild says:

    Does anyone have any proof that Obama is 22 in that picture? Sourcing?

    If the photo is accurate, it just screams out the differences in character between Obama and Perry. Who would you rather have represent you? Some slouching punk who looks like the only think he ever accomplished was to get dressed in the morning or a man who flies military aircraft around the world in the finest military in the world?

    It appears that Obama is probably around 18 in this picture, not 22.,29307,186

    • Bruce A. says:

      So what do you think Perry would have looked like at 18? To get to the point depicted at 22, standing on the cockpit ladder, he likely would have already been in boot.

      • LockesChild says:

        I don't know the answer to that. And it doesn't really matter. We do ourselves a disservice when we propagate mistakes like this.

        0 never did anything in his life of any significance. Never served, was a complete cipher as an undergraduate, was a token figurehead at Harvard, never ran a business, was an executive, never really produced anything of significance in either the Illinois legislature or the US Senate. And, since he was elected, the only thing President Downgrade "succeeded" at was failure.

    • Tee says:

      You're exactly right! This pic and several others were taken by an aspiring photographer named Lisa Jack in 1980 when Pres. Obama was a freshman at Occidental College. He WAS 18.…/in_fox_nation_photo_obama_i...

      • Tom White says:

        So let me get this straight. This picture is intended to show the contrast between the waste-in-chief and a real man and all the liberals want to concentrate on is the age? LOL!

        Put a hat on his head and and fag in his hand and Obama STILL looks like that.

        This optic speaks volumes about Obama at any age.

        • LockesChild says:

          While the picture still illustrates Obama's character at that age, the point remains that the comparison between Perry after graduating college to Obama just entering college is not accurate. In other words, the captions are wrong. Change the Obama caption to 18, then it passes that test. Or find an Obama photo of him at 22 to compare and contrast with Perry.

          None of which makes Obama any less of a dip. He is an incompetent, cowardly, race-hustling, class-warfare demagogue who has accomplished precious little in his years before becoming president. The only reason Obama is president is because of white guilt on the part of independent voters and on the part of the mainstream media.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
