Obama’s Presidential Portrait Already Chosen??? (See here) (Why Bother With More Debates or Having an Election??)

~~By InsightAnalytical-GRL

Well, if this isn’t proof that the fix must really be in….

Why even show up for a debate or waste time with an election? Or discuss the money earmarked for ACORN in the mortgage bailout bill? Or resist at all???

From the Washington Post’s “The Sleuth” column, we’ve got the not-so-subtle speculation that we’ve already got a Presidential portrait of Obama to admire! (Why doesn’t The Sleuth (Mary Ann Akers) go “behind the scenes” and do some sleuthing about the Democratic primary fix, Ayers, birth certificates, etc.?)

Artist Paints Portrait of ‘President Obama’

He doesn’t have the White House locked up yet but Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) already is the subject of a portrait titled “President Obama.”

“The painting is on hold and ready for when he walks into the Oval Office,” says Chaz Guest, the artist who painted it. Guest tells us the painting will be on loan to Senator/Possibly President Obama from the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago “until it is official.”

Guest decided to paint the portrait of “President Obama” since the Illinois senator was so appreciative of another portrait Guest painted of the late Justice Thurgood Marshall. That portrait, which Guest loaned to Obama, has hung in Obama’s Senate office for three years now.

Obama sent Guest a note thanking him for that painting on Oct. 11, 2005, saying: “A few years ago, Vernon Jordan told a graduating class that, ‘You are where you are today because you stand on somebody’s shoulders…and if you stand on the shoulders of others, you have a reciprocal responsibility to live your life so that others may stand on yours.’ One of the people whose shoulders I stand on is Thurgood Marshall…. Looking at the painting each day provides me great inspiration and comfort.”

Guest, who lives in Los Angeles, says he first met Obama four years ago at a fundraiser held at the home of major Obama bundlers Mattie and Michael Lawson when the rising political star from Illinois was running for Senate.

The artist sure seems confident that his portrait will be hanging in the Oval Office come next year. Perhaps there will be serigraphs (silkscreen prints) created of the painting of Sen. Obama at a later date,” Guest told the Sleuth via email.

The Sleuth seems to think that this really is IT because the artist “sure seems confident” and perhaps she is right, considering that Chaz Guest has known Obama for 4 years and has already been praised by Obama in flowery terms referencing Thurgood Marshall’s shoulders…OH, and the portrait has already been hanging in Obama’s little-used Senate office for 3 years. And why would Guest muse about the possibility of  “silkscreen prints”?  Jeez, are we going to have “silkscreen prints” bedecking every inch of the country???

Frankly, I think the portrait captures Obama almost perfectly…It’s all about looking forward, which these days equates with sideways and not really looking anybody in the eye…and it sure conveys a certain arrogance. The folded arms…ah, I know it looks strong, but folded arms indicate distancing or defensive. See ChangingMinds.org for more info on this posture…

Well, this portrait does have the potential to make it to the White House, I guess, but wouldn’t this one be more appropriate???

You may want to check out the post I did on this back in May…the little “stars” on the body parts sure do have interesting placements…Back then I described it as “hilarious”…but now, I’m no longer thinking it’s hilarious…

I’m thinking everything that has transpired this year has passed into the realm of the downright FRIGHTENING…

  1. As McCain said in the debate – he doesn’t already set the visitors’ schedule to the White House. “I don’t even have a seal”

  2. The fix is SO in.

  3. I am more than disgusted. All I see is vomit on the MSM about the One. Thanks, my friends will be very happy to see what you have up.

  4. Oh dear Lord, please make all this craziness stop.

    Obviously, in another attempt to make himself like Jack Kennedy, the Obamessiah has himself painted with arms crossed just like Kennedy’s official White House portrait.

    Kennedy’s is a full frontal view with a more contemplative look; however, the same hand Kennedy has tucked is also tucked in the Obama picture. Even the impressionist painting styles are similar.

    Compare it with the official portrait shown here: http://www.whitehousemuseum.org/floor1/portrait-jfk.jpg

    If Obama is elected, I am going into seclusion for the duration.

  5. I thought of the JFK portrait, too! It is CERTAINLY more contemplative….less arrogant, for sure!
    The jawline and jutting chin and the “stern” look is supposed to make O look more powerful…and almost combative.

    The JFK portrait is definitely different in tone…
    The ChangingMinds.org site also says:

    “Note that not all crossed arms are defensive. Sometimes folded arms, for example, are just a relaxed position.”

    As for the lowered head…the site talks about MOVEMENT, saying it can be defensive to move the head down…but in this case, I think this applies:

    “Sometimes, lowering the head is just a sign of tiredness. The head is rather heavy and a tired person’s head will sag.”

    While the JFK arms might not be in a simple relaxation state, when combined with the downward gaze, the overall picture is much more thoughtful and reflective…and bearing the burdens of office

  6. The fix has been in for a long, long time now.

  7. The fix is definately in. And the same corrupt media that gave us Gee Dubya and the Iraq was is now insisting on giving us the Obamation.

    The attempt to portray Obama like JFK is just another lipstick on a pig moment IMO. And yes I did call him a pig. A lousy sexist, elitist, pig.

    Time to forget partisanship and start caring about the damn country!

  8. Hilarious. Obama already has his Presidential Seal and Portrait ready to go. His version of Ready on Day One. You can’t make this stuff up!

  9. It’s a nightmare, Pagan, isn’t it???
    And, I’m really fearful he might indeed “win”….

  10. OT, but something else to make you livid…

    The CEO of the failed WaMu at the time of its demise had been on the job for seventeen days. He will receive for that, approximately $20 million in compensation.

  11. Respectfully, until I saw the rendering you posted, I woud’ve guessed that Obama’s “presidential” portrait would’ve been one of two things.

    Either him smiling and extending a one-finger salute to us.

    Or him, pants down, shooting us the moon.

  12. He’s turned to the right – looking right. That’s exactly what I think he’ll do – work with Republicans on things the Democratic party usually doesn’t work well with Repubs on. we already know the first one – expanding faith-based initiatives.

  13. They beefed up his frame so he wouldn’t look paper thin as he really is, same as his brain, paper thin. Obama must not win. America first, no Obama.

  14. The only comfort I get thinking about a President Obama …..

    The Puma blogs are going to really heat up 🙂

    Grrrrrrr.

  15. I think he really looks angry in the “presidential” portrait. The second portrait is just totally disgusting!

  16. “Guest decided to paint the portrait of “President Obama” since the Illinois senator was so appreciative of another portrait Guest painted of the late Justice Thurgood Marshall. That portrait, which Guest loaned to Obama, has hung in Obama’s Senate office for three years now”

    That protrait has been in the “Senator’s” office longer and with greater consistency than the “Senator” himself has.
    I agree the portrait displays Teh Precious as an angry, arrogant, almost pugnacious man. The shoulders and torso are out of proportion to the small head. Somehow that seems fitting.

  17. […] September 28, 2008 Obama Presidential Portrait…huh? Posted by mcnorman under Uncategorized | Tags: debates, McCain, Obama, portrait, president |   https://insightanalytical.wordpress.com/2008/09/27/obamas-presidential-portrait-already-chosen-see-he… […]

  18. […] Obama’s Presidential Portrait Already Chosen? […]

  19. […] Insight Analyticalhas a story of a portrait painted for Barack, all ready for the White House. No kidding. You […]

  20. Nice to see the ultra conservatives going crazy over something as unimportant as this… LOL. Many artists take inspiration from Obama and paint him as their subjects. And yet this is his fault?

    The MSM, the One, the Messiah, whine whine whine. Please stop the repetitiveness. We get it, you don’t like the idea of a positive president that is actually potentially relatable and likeable around the world.

  21. Floacist…in answer to your one-shot post…

    We’re not ultraconservatives; you seem, however, to have aligned yourself with a guy who IS going to pander to Republicans. He is NOT a positive force. Obama is a cynical, manipulative guy who has fooled you. Likeable? Only if you like arrogance, lying, fakery…gee, sort of like George Bush…who seemed to enable him…

    Go back to Obama-land and stay there….

  22. Wow, you are some really “special” people. There is a bit of the Timothy McVey about you. Figured you were all great W fans, but no, you dont like anyone!! I really hope you all sit home and watch TV and complain and dont actually go out and try to “do” something for anyone. It is best to just stay home and be self righteous. are you from Idaho? Wear white sheets occasionally?

  23. If you knew anything about us or even read through the site, you’d know that we DETESTED BUSH…

    We are independents, not “racist” although Obots like to think we are…

    We do something..like write and inform people and are in a network with action alerts. What do YOU do except drink KOOL-AID???

    So…screw off. Don’t bother coming back.
