add your own captions, Barack Obama photo

Standard

For the second installment of our “Say What?” series of writing captions for photos, we’re going to use a political picture.  This year, politics has been dominating the news, with all the primaries and caucuses to find a couple of presidential candidates.

This picture features one of the main Democrat candidates, Barack Hussein Obama.  This particular picture has become controversial of late, because he didn’t put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.  The U.S. Flag Code states that you should in this situation.  And lest you think it’s just a well-timed photo, there’s a video at Snopes.com that shows he wasn’t for the entire song.  An Obama campaign spokesperson said, “Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn’t.  In no way was he making any sort of statement, and any suggestion to the contrary is ridiculous.”  You can think what you want about that, though I wonder why a professional politician who calculates every move would sometimes do it and sometimes not do it.  Anyway, let’s get to the picture and the captions.

Barack Obama national anthem

You can write what Obama might be thinking, or what the other people in the photo might be thinking, or you can write your own analysis or commentary of the situation from a third-party perspective.  Have fun!

  1. This is what they’re thinking:

    Barry Obama: I wonder why their chests are itching? And what’s that music? It doesn’t sound familiar.

    Bill Richardson: I should’ve been a weatherman.

    Hillary Clinton: I never noticed before, but Bill Richardson looks like the weatherman from Channel 7 back home in Arkansas. Ooooh, I’ve gotta fart! Phhhhhvvvvvrrrrrrt!

    Unknown lady: I can’t believe this is all we have to choose from for this election. Ooooh, what’s that smell?! That smells like corned-beef and cabbage!

  2. Obama: I won’t make a phony display of patriotism by saluting your racist imperial flag. But I do have lots of CHANGE in store for America!

  3. OBama —- ” Who is asking Jose can he see.”

    Richardson—-“Yes Bill I promise if you take me to the Super Bowl I swear on my heart that I’ll support Hillary!”

    Hillary—— “And this is exactly where the Bosnian people were trying to shoot me, right here in my heart! Wait a minute, where is my heart?”

    The Other Lady——“Oh my, I think my pants are too short! I hope Sir Edmond Hillary’s name sake doesn’t notice.”

  4. Just by looking smarter and more presidential than the other candidates, the petunia gained 10 points in the overnight polls.

  5. obama- Man I’ve REALLY got to Pee… maybe if I hold my hands like this no one will see that I’ve already pee pee’d my pants just a little.

    richardson: Doh! I can’t believe that I accidentally put on a pair of jeans instead of my suitpants! Maybe I SHOULD be a weatherman… they are only on camera from the waist up.

    Hillary and other chick: wow, I feel like a midget next to these guys. My head doesn’t come much past their belly-buttons. i’m only twice as tall as that flower.

  6. If flags could talk-American Flag: I can’t believe those commies have the nerve to stand in front of me. Did someone put a hammer and sickle on me without me knowing? At least the Obamanator is honest enough to not put his hand over his heart during the national anthem. The nerve!

  7. Actually if you paid attention it was Thomas Wayne that first mentioned the flower. Although I must admit i’d vote for flowerpot over obama or hillary 🙂

  8. I wouldn’t know if it was petunias or ketunias… (if only I had stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night…)

    But one time Mango-Man was showing me some watermelons he was growing in his flower garden… 😮 I was over there for some grilled burgers, not a tour of his flower garden. Having watermelons in there seemed kinda strange to me, but I reckon he’s kinda strange…

  9. Obama: Only in Today’s America can a presidential candidate not pledge allegiance to the flag and still be considered worth voting for. Man, am I lucky that I wasn’t running for president in the 1940’s. I am such a fake and nobody cares. And thats why I am gonna win.

    Richardson: Why did I think I had a shot at this thing? Im not black, and I am not a woman. Maybe if I show a little love to the flag and actually sho some sincerity, then folks might think I am worth listening to.

    Hillary: I am the best thing since american idol! I have lied. I can cheat. and nobody cares. as long as I am not Bush. If I can convince Obama to be my lapdog, I will rule the world! Wait a minute, here is my chance. He is not pledging allegiance to the flag! O joy, he is done for now. Nobody in their right mind, who isn’t a complete fart, will vote for him after this. Victory is mine! HAHHAHAHAHAHA!

    Obscure Woman: I represent real (and legal) americans. We are tired of fake politicians. How did it come to this?

  10. Since Obama is in fact a liberal programmed robot from the not to distant future, who says his hand ISN’T over his heart?
