Oh man. It’s a blast from the past!
This may just be the FIRST Obama magazine cover EVER!
I would first like to point out that Obama is not purple. Is that what this cover is implying? Clearly Newsweek should get some better fact checkers. It’s odd that they would mistake the color of Obama, since his coloration gets mentioned a lot. I have yet to see anyone refer to him as the first purple president… (Green I have heard)
Maybe they’re implying that Obama sees everything as purple. That would be kinda weird. Why has no other profile on Obama mentioned this?
Maybe it’s just an unrelated article. Within the banner headline. Yeah. Maybe that happens.
Anyway, that is possibly the biggest smile I have ever seen. Clearly no one had told him that he was going to take over the hardest job in the world when the country was faced with one of the most major recessions in US history.
The picture isn’t the most creative ever, but to be fair, Newsweek had no idea some random blogger would ever be judging them on it. Also, it isn’t really fair to diss their creativity. Every Obamagazine is basically ripping off on this cover, so one could argue that they were the most creative.
Rating: President (8/8)
