Skip to comments.Obama vs the fly. Call it a draw?
Posted on 01/25/2013 7:35:57 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway
Three days into President Barack Obama's second term and it's clear he's not the man he was in his first term. Just ask the fly. A pesky Musca domestica (per pooler Brian Beutler of Talking Points Memo) landed on the president's face during a press conference Thursday to announce his picks to head the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Obama swatted at the fly a couple of times, and the official White House transcript records, "This guy is bothering me here(swatting at a fly.)" The insect eventually left the commander in chief alone.

Is he a corpseman ?
I can't remember any other president being reported on as having flies buzzing around him or being chased by fleeing mice.
It's easy to be a tin foiler with this entity.
Never seen a man with so many flies. It really is creepy.
“It’s hard to fool them flies”
Obama’s real legacy.... The only President to attract the most flies.
Flies are always drawn to piles of obama.
Uh, no, this is not a “draw.” This is a clear win for the fly, or at least a clear loss for Obama. This visual will haunt him for the rest of his term, and if it continues, will be even more so. In this visual non intellectual world, you should never underestimate things like this.
It will not hurt the fly’s repuation at all however.
It’s an omen.
His personal hygiene czar should be fired...
It is really very disturbing...Obama and his fly attraction.
Flies are drawn to the rot inside that man. They can smell the stench.
Yeah. It is.
I thought it was another mole or another monstrous size blackhead. Either way, it’s nice that the fly found a home! There’s no bigger pile of sh**.
The fly looks like a third eye. Very weird.
Flies are drawn to the rot inside that man. They can smell the stench.Very interesting! Stories have been written about St. John Vianney's ability to smell the stench of sin as well.
Oh jeez!...I had not seen that one yet! Thanks! That’s a keeper
It's the all-seeing eye of Oflyrus.
A fly is attracted to the mark of the beast, even through makeup.
Flies are attracted to s—t.
Was he in DC when this pic was taken?
It’s the middle of winter. One would be hard pressed to find a fly anywhere near DC this time of year. Really is kind of creepy now that I think about it.
If that's the case, this fly traded down.
Flies can smell phony balony a mile away
They must be White House flies. They hitched a ride from Chicago.
If the fly is still alive, I would call it a win for the fly.
So, a great novel would go along the lines that the fly was really a disguised drone that delivered a lethal dose of a bilogical agent. Happy endings!
Did anyone see if the fly came out of his head?
Maybe he is lacking in basic bethroom sanitation. I mean using toilet paper is sooooo hard to do....
Orkin Man 2016!
Washington Needs a Fumigation!
I hereby volunteer to go to Obama’s press conferences with a fly swatter and swat any flies that land on his face.
I will be glad to do it no charge.
He attracts flies, thats why they call him Stinky.
Don’t Muslims use their left hand?
If ( )o( ) would quit kissing (licking?/sucking?) Soros butt, the stinky attraction to flys might not be present.
$50.00 donation to Free Republic if anyone can find a video or picture of a US president other than Obama, giving a speech, with a fly on his face. (Not photoshopped of course). LOL
