Barack Obama provides landing pad for fly (Pics and Videos -- Get Your Barf Bag)
The Telegraph ^ | 1-24-2013 | Raf Sanchez,

Posted on 01/24/2013 5:20:40 PM PST by bimboeruption

Subtitle: Not even the Secret Service could keep the fly away from Barack Obama's furrowed brow.

The buzzing insect stole the show as the President announced his two new members of his second administration, cutting wild loops around the leader of the free world before landing squarely on his forehead.

The official White House transcript simply reads: "This guy is bothering me here - (swatting at a fly.)"

Meanwhile, the pool report which describes the President's movements throughout the day, noted that "the president spoke for about five minutes while being menaced by a house fly".

It wasn't the first time Mr Obama has shared camera time with a fly. In June 2009, the newly-elected president dealt some tough justice to one which interrupted an interview.

Well, we all know what flies land on. And we know what Obastard is. The fly just found a rather large specimen.

Can this really be a coincidence? It’s like the 4th time now. This is WINTER and he’s being photographed with flies. They don’t just buzz around him, either; they actually land on his FACE. “Lord of the Flies” should be his pseudonym.

This is bizarre. I live in a neighborhood with horses and cows in fields nearby, and there are frequently lots of flies around. NEVER has a fly landed on my face or the faces of family members.

You’re right.

I live on an agricultural farm surrounded by dairy, pig and horse farms.

In the summer, we have your run of the mill flies, horse flies, deer flies, etc. They don’t crawl around on faces.

And this is WINTER for crying out loud!

The only thing I can figure out is he must have a unique odor that draws flies.

FWIW, from Answers.com...

What is spiritual meaning of flies?

Answer:

In Milton's Paradise Lost Satan's second in command is Beelzebub which translates from Hebrew as Lord of the Flies. Beelzebub is mentioned in the bible, but only as a secondary reference to the powers of evil. Flies are thus associated with evil death, and Satan. By inference if flies are present, so is death and Satan.

Jimmy Carter and some rabid rabbit. Now this fly incident. We need to determine what kind of fly it was, the sex and the reason for the visit.

It's wings are set at angles, like it was a sick fly or a very pregnant one trying to lay eggs that would hatch into maggots. It is well known that carrion attract flies.

I'm an entomologist, but not a fly expert. I'd say it could have been a Tachinid which is the type of fly whose eggs hatch into parasitic maggots.

Drudge pictures does not give me the resolution but other suggestions are Scardophadid flesh eating maggot mother just trying to lay eggs and not necessarily feed.

Could also be a deranged skitzo fly packing heat.

Just sayin.....

Several things come to mind, no flies should be around unless that WH is kept so toasty all winter, the flies thrive year around. Sanitation issues in the WH including vector control. Summer temperature control (are the hut windows opened?) Strangest thing about this incident is the room full of press and the fly singles out Barry. Where slumlords go, flies will follow.

I watch the live trials on TV and have heard many medical examiners and entomologists give their reports.

According to them, flies play an important role in the decomposition of a corpse. They do all kinds of testing on dead bodies at the Tennessee Body Farm to study the decomposition process.

A fly can detect a dead body in 13 seconds. They are drawn to it by the odor. The LOVE the smell of putrid, rotting flesh.

Just sayin’.

The place is a hot, smelly, filthy poop-hole...there are TRILLIONS of flies in Africa so I’m not surprised when I see pics showing them on faces.

But he’s in the spotless White House, in the winter.

I am also reminded of the interview he gave where he was harrassed by a housefly and swatted or grabbed it with “ cat-like reflexes” or some such crap, as the fawning media described it.

Beelzebub, indeed.

Rotting stench is particularly attractive to flies. I used to milk cows in the evening for a dairy that was down the road and never once out of the thousands of flies in the milk barn in July had a fly land on my face for more than a fraction of a second. The cows and all the cowshit were much more attractive.

Amorphophallus titanum, the corpse flower:

“Another common name for the plant is carrion flower, thanks to its distinctive aroma and the way it attracts carrion-eating beetles and flesh flies, which are instrumental for the plant’s pollination.”
