Obama Remembers Neil Armstrong with a Big Picture of… Himself

When I heard Neil Armstrong had passed away, it took me a while to hit me fully. I saw people send messages of remembrance and commemoration, and decided I should do my own, to show how much respect I have for a real American hero:

It is nearly literally the least I could do for someone that symbolized American greatness so thoroughly, and in so many aspects.

You know what I didn’t think to do? I didn’t think to post a picture of myself to remember Neil Armstrong. Never got into my mind that this was a good way to remember his greatness.

But then, I’m not president mompants:

I wonder if he had some pimply-faced staffer in his twenties write this for him. Did he go out and take a special picture, or just use a stock photo? Maybe that’s not even him and they photoshopped some dumbo ears onto a picture of some other guy…

UPDATE!

I found the source of the picture, and just as I suspected, it was a stock photo taken of Obama from their Flickr account. Here is the original, posted a full four months ago:

Wow, president mompants couldn’t even be bothered to take a fresh picture. Classy! What a way for the worst president in recent memory to egotistically dishonor the death of an indisputable American hero…

UPDATE: The Flickr link was incorrect, but has been fixed.

UPDATE: White House correspondent Mark Knoller reports that Obama is calling for flags to be flown at half mast for Neil Armstrong’s funeral on Friday. At least he got something right!

  2. I couldn’t agree more… But one small point: The crescent on the Islam symbol faces the opposite way of the moon in the photo. He couldn’t even get that right.

  3. THIS MUSLIM IS THINKING ABOUT HIS FRIENDS WHO DIED CRASHING THE PLANES INTO WORLD TRADE CENTER. HE NEEDS TO GO SOMEWAY. IF HE GETS ELECTED HE WILL BE ELIMINATED AND THEN WE HAVE BIDEN. WHAT A SCARY THOUGHT. THEN THEN RACE RIOTS BEGAN. DEMS PLEASE WISE UP!!!!!!!

  5. It’s not just any stock photo either, as my partner in Conservatism, DevilDog, noted that imagery and symbols are very important…Ask Pamela Geller, I think she might agree.

  6. Obama is the reincarnation of Alfred E. Newman

  7. At least it’s a silhouette. That way, when America (hopefully) forgets about Obama, they won’t be able to recognize him.

  9. Not that I like Obama, because I don’t. He’s not looking at a moon and star, he’s looking at THE PLANET VENUS and THE MOON. THE MOON, the place where NEIL ARMSTRONG was the 1st human being ever to set foot upon. The picture was taken before Neil Armstrong passed away. Someone apparently felt that a statement from the POTUS and a photo of him gazing at the MOON was appropriate to use. NOTHING MORE

  10. Muslim scumbag he is.

  11. would you mind if I copy this to our 2012 tea party site and then to my face book site w/your name if you want. This was wonderfully done and more people need to see it..

  12. I would very much appreciate it, thank you!

  16. dear JoeKidd….it’s not that oblahma has a diseased mind….he IS the disease!….anybody find that cure yet???….still waiting

  17. Funny, because according to Shira La one of the Muslim faith CAN by the law of Shira La, Lie to somebody (or a mass of people) as long as its intent is to forward the advance of Shira La,

    As well how stupid do you feel that his closest political advisers are in support of amending the article in the constitution that restricts the standards of “2 term presidency” for a possible 3rd, or 4th.

    You tell me in WHAT way he is a Moderate Republican? You are truly ignorant, perpetuating social programs is the OPPOSITE of Moderate Conservatism, and is heavier on the left scale towards liberalism/socialism.

    His father hated America, his own brother threw BOTH Obama and his father under the bus about their TRUE views of America, just because “Obama” says he doesn’t doesn’t mean a damn thing (Reference the Shira La above)

    Just because someone doesn’t get CAUGHT by the law/judicial system breaking law doesn’t mean its not Criminal, Watergate actions by Nixon was Criminal, but HE wasn’t convicted. How educated are you in this field and topic? To me doesn’t seem like very much…

    BTW what did Dennis say that was so racist? Just because someone doesnt like an individual because of his character, and the person happens to be black doesnt make Dennis a racist.

    Im not required to like ALL black people just because they are black to avoid being a racist. You’re wearing out the power and meaning of that word.

    You sir are stupid, and obviously over your own head.
