    I'm guessing this is the latest greatest savior Obama photo ? Here we get a glimpse of his native American aura

    Yep, another one for the list.

    I'm getting old and my memory is going fast. With that qualifier, I don't remember seeing other former presidents portrayed in such a light.

    It was Jimmy Carters sweater, Nixon's beard, Clinton's sax, Bush 1's lips, and Bush 2's flight jacket. With Obama, it seems to be a halo.

    how about JFK?

    It's said the People of the World loved him, idolized him.

    It's true and it was not confined to party affiliation as the situation with Obama today.

    I was in the military when he was "my" president though I did not "idolize" him in the sense of worship.

    However:

    Abortion was still illegal.

    He lowered the tax rates :

    And he made this famous quote:

    He was probably to the political right of many if not most modern Republican statesmen.

    "...Once, at a Harvard dinner, a speaker compared McCarthy with convicted Soviet spy Alger Hiss, prompting JFK to rise above the Crimson crowd and scream, “How dare you couple the name of a great American patriot with that of a traitor!” before storming out of the building."

    JFK was a brave man who had great political courage. He, as McCarthy, was a great American patriot.

    ...heheh, I couldn't recollect Nixon ever having a beard so I had to check it out...:

    "Nixon was 5' 11" tall with brown eyes and dark hair. He has no illusions about his own attractiveness. "This is the face I've got," he once said. "I've got to accept it as it is." During the 1960 campaign, he refused to view tapes of his debates with Kennedy because he couldn't stand the way he looked on TV. Nixon's heavy growth of beard has always been notorious, and during campaign tours he had to shave at least 2 or 3 times every day in order to keep himself presentable...."

    You could be right. LOL

    Finally found it. It's a K'NEX 6' ferris wheel.

    Regardless of whether what the 'object' is, the object is to still portray Obama in an unearthly light. IMO.

    Yes, they were both fiercely anti-communist.
