President Obama's Photo-FLOP

The other day I posted a piece suggesting that President Obama was making a lame attempt to channel Teddy Roosevelt. It seems that Turkish officials didn't find it as funny as I did:
Turkish leaders didn’t seem to think so.

"The photo reveals from whom our Prime Minister receives orders to rule the country," Metin Lutfi Baydar, an opposition politician for Turkey’s Republican People's Party (CHP) party, said in a statement.

Another CHP leader, party vice president Umut Oran, called the picture "an implicit insult to Turkey and its citizens” in Parliament, Reuters reports.

It’s exactly the opposite message the Obama team was hoping to convey.
Now the Obama teams logic for posting that photo......THIS IS HILARIOUS:
"We released the photo with only one purpose in mind, to highlight the President's continuing close relationship with Prime Minister Erdogan and draw attention to the important conversation they had about the worsening situation in Syria," Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the White House, wrote in a statement released Friday.
Read the full story HERE.

hahahaha...I always take photos of myself holding a baseball bat when I want to convey a "close relationship" with someone ............DON'T YOU?........DOESN'T EVERYONE?

BTW...Think the media will make an issue out of this like Romney's so-called Gaffes in London & Israel?

Such a pointless photo. BOSMAN I think you are right in thinking they were trying to channel Teddy Roosevelt.

But what could he be telling Prime Minister Erdogan that would warrant a "big stick"?

He thinks the baseball bat will help with his feminine image.

Bat for building relationship? Sounds about right for such a "nice" Eric Holder / Rahm Emanuel appointing guy.

At least Romney visited Israel and he didn't bow to Saudi princes. Also, Queen didn't invite Obamas to Prince Williams' wedding; so much for charisma. Obama's not as exciting after scrutiny. And Lech Walesa refused to meet with Obama, but he invited Romney for this meeting. Sounds like a grand slam to me.

I recall Obama trying to give mitt romney advice on how to deal with foreign leaders saying that you have to be careful of what you say when you are abroad. LOL. Looks like they need to follow their own advice.
