BABY NEEDS SHOES  1:12 pm June 9, 2009

Did Barack Obama Get His Shoes Fixed?

by Ken Layne

Piano rolled blues, danced holes in my shoes.
Remember when poor street hustler Barack Obama had big old holes in the soles of his Florsheim salesman shoes? Here’s a new arty sex photo by White House pornographer Pete Souza, and the shoe soles maybe have holes, still? Or are the shoes just blurry to fuck with your minds? Or, is America finally officially bankrupt, a terrible The Road hellscape where even the rich young president staggers through life with hobo shoes? (Also, note how he is on the phone with Benjamin Netanyahu, and making the “Bibi’s got a little bitty dick” hand signal.”) [White House Flickr]

Looks like he’s explaining to John Boehner how much of a dicksack he is.

Min June 9, 2009 at 1:20 pm

Cool. The President’s carbon footprint has a built-in, low-impact ventilation system.

Servo June 9, 2009 at 1:21 pm

I thought he only wears Terrist Combat Sandals.
Nice ’90s phone.

He’s wearing his soles out running out for fucking hamburgers all the time.
‘Cuz Muslins love hamburgers.

Who will be the first to complain that BHO disrespectfully puts his feet on America’s furniture?

Ronald Reagan better not catch him doing that. oh wait..

WadISay June 9, 2009 at 1:29 pm

I think Bo may have something to do with the spot on his left sole.

Lord Growing June 9, 2009 at 1:30 pm

Actually, the joint between his fingers was photoshopped out.
If you had to talk to that putz, you’d get stoned too.

sezme June 9, 2009 at 1:30 pm

Those aren’t even his shoes. It’s a paperweight made out of John Edwards’ feet.

[re=334815]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: Somewhere at this moment, a Texas schoolboard member is looking at this photo on the internet and shitting himself in rage

Like what moran would go to Paris and NOT come back with a new pair of shoes?

The Station Manager June 9, 2009 at 1:34 pm

According to my Republican Friends*, the word for this is “Uppity”. He becomes prz’nit and all of a sudden he’s all “I Don’t Want These Shitty Shoes Anymore, Oh And Death To America”.

*Haha, just kidding, I don’t have any of those.

When is the film of “The Road” coming out? Why the delay? Are they afraid it will inspire roaming bloodcults?

Doglessliberal June 9, 2009 at 1:35 pm

More importantly, he is sitting down and with his back to Our Flag instead of standing and saluting as one always should be if one is a True Patriot. He clearly hates America and wants to blow it up. He is probably plotting to blow it up on that call. With North Korea. His ally.

The average barefoot and dressed in rags voter will resent the “look at my fancy shoe bottoms with no holes in ‘em” Obama! Fer sure.

This is a Biden-grade gaffe.

Citizen Kang June 9, 2009 at 1:37 pm

That’s the POTUS playing the world’s smallest violin for Bibi.

Uh, is that an attempt at a ‘stach I see on his lip?

bitchincamaro June 9, 2009 at 1:39 pm

Man, those dogs look tired. And the Flickr commenters are almost as crazy as the youtubers.

donner_froh June 9, 2009 at 1:40 pm

making the “Bibi’s got a little bitty dick” hand signal.

If the Bibi referred to is gorgeous transsexual actress Bibi Fernandez (Andersen) then he is talking about someone with no dick at all.

proudgrampa June 9, 2009 at 1:46 pm

[re=334850]pondscum[/re]: I think you’re right. Ooooh, boy. That’s gonna really upset the populace: a president with facial hair???

donner_froh June 9, 2009 at 1:56 pm

[re=334853]bitchincamaro[/re]: Maybe not that bad–most of the really insane ones are from one guy (who apparently has been banned under a different name or something) and reactions to his comments. The rest seem to be strangely innocous “Hi, Mr. Obama” or comments about the picture itself.

Or so it seems after scrolling through them for about 30 seconds.

Dick Cheney would have already made new shoes out of the hides of screaming babies and added hellhound leather accents, for style.

pondscum June 9, 2009 at 2:33 pm

[re=334862]proudgrampa[/re]: Hairy muslin. Sounds scratchy.

WickedWitch June 9, 2009 at 3:43 pm

The alt-text wins the afternoon.

choinski June 9, 2009 at 4:33 pm

That brown spot is not a hole, its Bo spoor.

Dean Booth June 9, 2009 at 5:55 pm

Isn’t he insulting the Muslins by showing the soles of his shoes? Or maybe it’s a secret message.
