The Photoshop Presidency

It looks like the Obama Administration has issued yet again another photoshopped photo of the “Situation Room” Mara Zebest has another example at the American Thinker. Another attempt to show that the O was in change, when in fact he was on the golf course. Details HERE
This presidency will be know in history as the Photoshop Presidency.
And now another attempt to show the O’s leadership with yet again another photoshopped product. When will the hacks on Obama staff learn that there are much smarter people out here in the hinterlands with more skills than they do? Oh!
Here is a segment of the discussion I found most interesting:
Obama’s entire “Composite Presidency” and administration are orchestrated in this fashion. Not only is the photo’s legitimacy in question, but so is the narrative illusion behind it. Obama knew of OBL’s location for a year and refused to act. The CIA admits that there was “no live video feed,” as implied by the iconic White House photo. It is anyone’s guess what the captive audience was looking at, but it wasn’t the OBL raid. It was recently reported that a highly lawyered CYA memo was drafted that made it clear that the military would take all blame for any errors, while Obama would claim all glory for successes. Not surprisingly, the real heroes seem to have a problem with this form of spiking the ball and using our brave SEALs for political gain. Why would Obama need to Photoshop the Situation Room photos? For the same reason behind everything else he does: to influence perception in which everything is about Obama
