    Where is the stitching done? Maybe it is so obvious that I don't see it.

    Stitching was done on the op's head. They didn't do a very good job and
    every now and then a little bit of garbage oozes out and contaminates
    the ng.

    Ah, what stitching software is used?

    I can see where you might think there is a stitch line, but I really
    don't think the image was stitched.

    My only problem with the photo is that it was edited on a Mac (just
    kidding, well mostly).

    I do see an artifact that might be a stitch line. Clearly, this was done to
    hide the fact that Obama is a communist.

    But, seriously... even if there is a stitch line... what's the point? Who
    gives a shit?

    The more serious problem with this photo is the fact that they're both
    wearing long sleeve shirts and ties. That's unacceptable, IMO.

    As one commenter said, Obama is breaking his wrists. Golf lessons...

    Not me.
    It's a dumb shot, but that's just me.

    First look at the Large size photo.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/3484868454/sizes/l/

    Notice the line down the tree in the background where the tree changes
    colors. This line continues down into the grass.

    Now look at the photo at it's original size.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/3484868454/sizes/o/

    You can clearly see where the photos have been joined.

    My guess is that either Obama and Biden weren't there at the same
    moment or somebody else was there that was taken out. And who's
    shadow is that to the right?
    And what is Obama putting to?

    I can't see a "line" at all, let alone one in the grass.
    Look at it closely, it's obviously the shadow of a branch.
    A hole in the ground, presumably, out of shot.

    I think you're imagining things.

    Can you name one government, any time, anywhere, that has operated
    without cost?

    Taxes have been a reality of life ever since Og figured out that since
    he was the biggest guy in the cave community he could collect a
    healthy percentage of his neighbor's property by simply threatening to
    crush the skull of anyone who objected.

    The main difference between then and now is that we get F-22s -and
    some other stuff- for our money instead of watching Og take our
    property *and* our women with no recompense whatsoever

    There is a painting of the signing of the Declaration of Indenpendence which
    also appears on the back of the $2 bill. There are about a half dozen people
    in that painting who weren't at the signing. Additionally, there are about a
    half dozen people who were at the signing who aren't in the painting.
    My point? Who cares! It's the spirit or intent of the picture that counts.

    It is, in fact, the usual configuration.
    Let's say for a minute that it *is* Photoshopped, stitched, and
    manipulated seven ways from the middle. What would be scandalous
    about it?

    Now if the Republicans came up with a similar photo with Chavez
    Photoshopped in as Obama's putting partner, *that* would be
    scandalous.

    You mean they haven't yet?

    That is such bullshit logic. That's like saying you're spending
    $30,000 a month on automobile expenses because you purchased a new
    automobile that month.

  17. So, let me understand this right:

    People are yelling because the White House did _NOT_ photoshop Air Force
    One over New York and people are yelling because the White House _DID_
    (supposedly) photoshop another photo?

    Yup. Pegged it in one.

    You didn't *really* expect logic to prevail in a political discussion,
    did you?
