Does Newsweek actually think they are doing Obama any favors with their cover?

LOL. I’ve been saying that since the girly faggot got elected! Newsweek has just clued into it now? BTW, is Newsweek still in business? I’m sure their 17 loyal readers will find the cover very interesting and provocative.

Oh-Bam-Ah! More appropriate cover would be the pics of him bending over bowing to other male leaders. He’s had lots of practice bending over.

I saw that cover earlier. I really thought that somebody was making fun of Obama. I really thought somebody photoshopped a picture of Obama with a homosexual themed rainbow halo onto a fake Newsweek cover.

I am really shocked to learn that this is their actual cover picture. I don’t think I shock too easily at what the liberals in the MSM do, but this one seemed so over the top to me.

They still give him the halo. I doubt that anyone in the world looks to Time and Newsweak for objectivity any more. It's all about finding an echo chamber that repeats back the readers' biases.

What does the rainbow halo mean?

The gay groups use rainbows as an image or color scheme as a symbol of their movement.

A rainbow halo could signify a symbolism of being sacreligious. Or it could mean that they think Obama is an angel for supporting homosexual marriage. Or it could be a nod to Obama saying that he supports homosexual marriage due to the Biblical principle of the Golden Rule.

One thing is certain. This cover is meant to convey a message about homosexual marriage and about Obama.

Let me see if I get this: Gays (deviants) make up 1-2% of the entire US population, and he's reaching out to them in order to gain their vote, while at the same time completely turning away independents? WTF! You'll notice i didn't mention black voters included here. The only thing important to him is the color of his skin.

Whomever it is advising Obama to take these actions, I say THANK YOU! :-D

You big silly, it means he's now officially a secular saint.

Somebody (the media)has polling data which shows that the only living thing that couldn't beat Zero in November is the thin layer of microbial film under Aunt Ruby's refrigerator.

I now deem this election officially OVER - either that or there is a blockbuster revelation relative to Obama's sexuality which is about to hit the 24 hour news cycle and the lamestream is doing this so that when it is revealed, they can claim

"old news!"

Hmmmm ... People here will read that in ways that Andrew may not have intended ...

But it won't be the first time he or Newsweek have shot themselves in the foot.

I guess this is an attempt to one-up Time's breastfeeding cover.

It won't work.

Oh yes, lets also NOT forget, the 31 States who've passed Constitutional amendments defining marriage between a MAN and WOMAN have been by significant majorities.

I hope these queers can really get behind you Barry (No pun intended)!

Apparently it was his kids who convinced him to come out of the closet (where he was smooching with a gay secret service agent).

While our church searches for a pastor to replace the one who recently retired after 30 years inour pulpit, we have an interim pastor.

This morning, he began with:

"This is not part of the sermon, but I feel compelled to take a stand: Marriage is between one man and one woman -- for life -- -- because that is what GOD'S WORD says -- no matter what any official says !"

The response was the expected healthy rumble of "Amen!"s -- and then the entire congregation erupted into loud and sustained applause!!

Ø'hØmØ's queer stance definitely has not helped his prospects in Atlanta, Texas!!

Mitt Romney should send a thank you note to Newsweek but I would advise him to heed the little French General Napoleon Bonaparte: “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”

1. This is just hilarious. I love the way Newsweek made his head look pointy, too.

2. Obama is going to continue to blame Biden for forcing his hand on this issue. I can just picture him holding this issue of Newsweek, pacing around the Oval Office, bumping into furniture, fuming and swearing about Biden.

And Michelle will be livid, too. For if Obama is the first “gay” president, where does that leave her?

3. This is the Obama who wanted to improve America’s standing abroad and have other nations respect us. Remember “we will extend our hand to you, Iran, if you will unclench your fist”? Ha! Ahdmadinijhad will be very relieved indeed that he never held hands with Obama! Eww!

Is that cover Newsweek’s way of endorsing Romney? How could Newsweek believe that cover does the Liberal Messiah any favors?

BTW, thanks Biden.

Axelrod is not this stupid. There is only one possible explanation for all this 'gay' stuff, and the composite girlfriend, etc. etc. Sheriff Joe, the only official who has ever seriously dug deep into Obama’s past, uncovered irrefutable proof of Obama’s homosexual proclivities. They tried to head Joe off w threats from Holder's Dept of Injustice, but Joe, who daily faces the wrath of Mexico's druglords, was unimpressed by Holder's foot stomping. So Axelrod, w the full cooperation of the MSM, is doing everything in his power to soften the blow.

Nothing else makes sense.

maybe its to get Obama out and save the Democratic-Progressive Party (and the Nation as well). They are loyal to the movement not the man—he was a tool only—they will toss under the bus.

I think you've got it.

Here's what I said on another thread (quoting myself):

“One of a continuing series of inoculation shots for Obama. When proof of homosexual dalliances emerges, Obama will be fully inoculated against the effects. It will already have completed the transformation into “old news”.”

Don’t be shocked. I wrote a short vanity on the General Chat side of FR saying that the media is setting Obama up for martyrdom for his brave stand on homosexual marriage.

When Obama loses, and he will, it will be said that he sacrificed his presidency for the noble cause of gay marriage.

More and more lib pundits are realizing Obama is a loser. Even AP had a story about what a global disappointment Obama has been. And there is Klein’s book about Obama fittingly called, The Amateur. The media is giving him a halo and a golden parachute for the coming fall from grace.
Martyrdom is coming.

The rainbow halo is the first sign of that martyrdom. Either that or the rainbow pot of all our tax dollars is sitting on the bamster’s head.

What I find interesting is that Jeremiah Wright has just come out to say the Obama administration j tried to buy his silence. Obviously, he has no intention of staying silent, and who would have more dirt on him?

This is called “inoculation”.

Obama’s inner circle has concluded that Reggie Love or Larry Sinclair or someone is about to get some airtime calling out Obama as a gay lover.

By running this story first, Tina Brown has converted any talk of Obama’s homosexuality (or bisexuality) into a third party attack on gay “rights”.

Pretty clever...
