Late Night: Much Ado About A Photo

Barack Obama had a testy exchange in Philly today with a man who wanted to have his picture taken with Obama. Watch the video here.

According to Obama’s campaign, the man who wanted the photograph “is an eBay seller and was seeking a photo, presumably to sell online.” Maybe he was…  But in my opinion Obama would have done better to smile and let the guy have the photo rather than have this testy exchange caught on film.

Instead this video is out there for the public to see and Barack Obama certainly doesn’t appear to be a congenial candidate vying for votes. Instead now it is a “question of temperment.”  

And of course we all know all hell would have broken loose if that exchange had been with Hillary Clinton.

    Even if the man was an eBay seller, as claimed by the Obama camp, it’s not like a photo with Obama would pull in big bucks since there are tons of similar photos so why make such a big fuss over nothing? It just looks stupid on his part.

    If Clinton would’ve been the one in Obama’s place, it would’ve resulted in a week-long examination of her psyche, including (of course) mention of whether she had suffered some nervous breakdown.

    How did they know at the time he sold photos on eBay? I’m just curious about that. That’s an ex post facto sort of justification, I think.
