    I'm not here to talk about politics, so keep that shit in another forum. I just like having a guy in office that knows about Blackberrys, Flickr and YouTube and doesn't think the interwebs is a "series of tubes". :cool:

    while I agree w/ you on the coolness of knowing that stuff... I'll add that there's some killer pics in the set too. No politic bashing here, but in the age of information, everyone wants to know everything about everyone. And if you have a "celebrity" president, might as well throw him in that mix too. Make it a big ol' circus. :o

    ...Just imagine how much information the official photographer has access to, considering he/she is one of those "invisible people" that are always around. :sad2:

    LOL, this made me laugh. I did enjoy looking throug all the white house photos though. Did Bush or Clinton allow this kind of access when they were in office?

    Not that I know of. Bush definitely didn't and with Clinton, it probably wouldn't have been possible since DSLR's were pretty new for most of his presidency and Flickr or other ad hoc photo sharing didn't exist.

    just because you know how to use a blackberry and youtube, that doesn't mean you're capable of running the country.

    ..as has been evidenced over the past few months.

    I wish they would have with Bush, I think it would have opened a whole other "side" of him. I do remember seeing a few "behind the scene" pictures of him. One of them I really remember was him crying, completely different face than what you saw on the news, guy looked sad and lonely and scared all at the same time. Wish I could remember where I saw that.

    Jesus christ. Just look at the fucking pictures and save the douchy political commentary. And if you're just incapable of that then hit your back button. I know it's rocket science, but why don't you give it a try.

    Not picking on you dude, but do you really think that you could personally do better?

    I mean after looking through these pictures it tells a story of a regular man in an extraordinary position (at least to me it does). Look at his face in some of those pictures, it can't be easy running the most fucking powerful country in the world. No matter what you do people are always going to hate you, I imagine that wears on a person after a while.

    At least what I took from these pictures is that he's a normal man doing a hard job. Trying to balance running a country, being a husband, father, and role model for millions of Americans can't be easy, and I sure as shit know I couldn't do any better.

    EDIT: Wasn't trying to get political, just sharing what the pictures said to me.

    Seriously guys, this isn't the place for comments about what kind of president you think Obama is or who you think is better for the job. The cool thing about this Flickr page is that finally the American public is being allowed access to more "behind the scenes" type of imagery than has been available before. It's progressive and very cool, regardless of what side of the political fence you're on.

    You guys could seriously fuck up a wet dream with all your bitchy harping on shit you think sucks, so why don't you just leave that crap out of a thread for once....or go post your misery in one of aCab's threads. :o

    AFAIK, there's only one "official" White House photographer who has pretty much complete access to the president and documents his time in office. The images are used for documentary purposes and for the media, but clearly this photographer has much more access than in previous administrations.

    I can't remember where I saw the article talking about the White House photographer position, but it was pretty cool info.
