Obama Remembers Pearl Harbor By Promoting Picture of Himself

Oh noes, the President of the United States keeps putting pictures of himself in his media releases that relate to the days events. It like he was elected and thinks its part of his duties to represent the country at these events or something. I for one am just appalled at the utter shameless attempts by this administration showing the President doing his JOB as figurehead of the country. This outrageous behavior must stop.

resinhead, it wouldn't be so bad if he were caught in an act of genuine humility and honor, but he's a posuer, and it's what he does best.

How do you know that he was not genuinely humble and honorable at the event? Truthfully, you don't. You weren't there to watch him, you didn't speak to him about the event or about his feelings concerning Pearl Harbor. Basically, you are just making an assumption that he's a horrible person simply because you disagree with him politically. When we fail to see our opponents as human, we lose the ability to debate successfully and fall into the trap of character attacks, which rational people just ignore.

resinhead, my wife and I know an individual who actually works in his residence, so I do know the man has no honor. I've seen the man day in and day out, from talk show to golf outing, to vacation back to talk show, to know he has no humility. I've seen his "present" voting record to know he has 0 experience. Human? Yes. Leader? Absolutly not.

An appeal to hearsay doesn't bolster your argument. As far as anyone knows your friend could be the plumber or lawn care crew; besides you only said you know someone and you hope that we'll just assume that means you know what your talking about. That's called an appeal to authority, which is a weak and misleading way to bolster an argument.

Your next bolster attempt was an appeal to your own experience. Unfortunately your "experience" was filtered through the media. So you've seen what others want you to see. Not a strong bolster either.

Finally, what does his voting record have to do with this conversation? I am not going fill in the logic steps of your argument for you, you'll have to show your work.

Doing what job?? Increaseing our national debt and destroying the economy in the process is hardly a job!!

Just this week President Obama celebrated Rosa Parks by publishing a photo of himself on a bus and now the White House can't even commemorate Pearl Harbor without bringing Obama's face into the picture. From the White House Twitter feed:

Photobucket

Because it's all about him.
