Caption that Photo -- The Presidential Hug

By GOPUSA Staff

There are so many people still without basic services in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Yet the intense scrutiny and criticism that was heaped on the Bush administration following Hurricane Katrina is nonexistent for Obama. In this picture, Obama is seen hugging a hurricane victim. What's he thinking?

Before you jump in, first check out what Donna Vanzant (the person being hugged) had to say about Obama's visit.

Ok, now jump in and give us your best caption. Be creative and keep it clean.

      Obama (thinking)—’Yeah, Buddy, this is what I’m talking about—another PR opportunity involving a tragedy where I can make it look like I’m someone whom I’m not.’

    Well, lady. I know about your plight, and I promise as soon as I get back from upcoming Hawaiian Holiday, which BTW will cost the taxpayer upwards of $4 million dollars, I will try to get you some help. Until then, enjoy your day.

    There, there!

    As President I am actually clueless when it comes running the country and am so thankful the media will minimize my every blunder and put the focus on vilifying my opponents, but if you are thinking of becoming gay, or are now, I do support you getting married, and then there is the special deal offered just because you are woman for contraceptives, and last, but not least, if you were to sneak into the country and have children, will personally see they are rewarded for your effort.

    Of course, since you are a business owner, I am thinking of taking it all anyway, so count your blessings

    Now, what was it, again, you want?

    {im singing in the rain
    just singing in the rain
    what a glorious feeling
    im happy again}

      All the above comments are inane.

      I AM SO THANKFUL WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO CARES ABOUT 100% OF THE PEOPLE! Now if the GOP will get serious and work with the president, great things can happen. OR – they can remain the “Obstructionist” Party and the American people will suffer. Try to be an American and support your President!
