Here’s the Death-Stare Face Obama Made While Waiting Yesterday

by Jack Stuef

AHHHHHHHH! SCARY OBAMA!
America, this is just a guess, but it’s probably not a good idea to make Obama angry. “We’re gonna need a new vein!” — Obama’s face of death. This whole photo is pretty much the greatest picture of the century so far. Joe Biden is like, “Murhp?” And Hillary Clinton is like, “OMG!” (This is the caption that will be appear in history books, because history is written by the winners: teenagers who are popular.)

Jeez! You guy look like you're watching the last play of the Super Bowl! You know, something serious!
What’s that on Hillary’s computer? It’s blurred out. Most people would assume they’re classified photographs, but it’s just as likely it’s porn. Porn really calms the nerves when you have to answer that “3 am” call.

ANYWAY, as fun as this photo is, it’s fun to imagine other things they may have been watching yesterday:

  • Watching Obama try to beat the final level on Super Mario Brothers 2.
  • Finally catching the last episode of The Sopranos on Netflix.
  • Witnessing the sheer horror that is the “John McCain sex tape.”
  • Looking for just the right moment to interrupt Celebrity Apprentice.

Yeah, all of those seem to work just fine. [Flickr]

Sarah Palin wears hers even when she's naked.

That's more about her body piercings than I wanted to know!

Lol, after four (?) kids, that dame's gotta have enough loose skin around her navel to carry the medals of several banana republic dictators.

A little American flag just above the gates to right wing heaven. Also known as the black hole of politics. How appropriate!

Barb May 2, 2011 at 5:49 pm

I hear there is a martyr tape that Bin Laden made to be released after his death, on a golf course in Florida, at age 94.
I can't wait for the blooper reel where Osama keeps accidentally referring to himself as Obama Bin Laden.

dekkoparsnip2 May 2, 2011 at 5:49 pm

You can't fool me. The Sopranos isn't on Netflix. CONSPIRACY.

nounverb911 May 2, 2011 at 5:50 pm

Does Obama use that same face when the Bulls are losing too?

evan7257 May 2, 2011 at 5:50 pm

In my fantasy, Biden brought popcorn and raisinettes. Everyone watches the live feed in silence, suddenly interrupted by Biden mixing the candy into the popcorn. Hillary gives him the death stare, and so he offers her the bag.
"Want some?"
She keeps staring.
"I'll have some," a random guy in the back says.
"Oh no you won't!" she asserts.
"Quiet, all of you!" Obama says sternly. "They're approaching the Tyrannosaur paddock.

"Tyrannosaur paddock" had me laughing my ass off like an idiot. Thanks. It helped that I just caught it on teevee the other day.

From the Flickr link:

Seated, from left, are: Brigadier General Marshall B. “Brad” Webb, Assistant Commanding General, Joint Special Operations Command; Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough; Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. Standing, from left, are: Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; National Security Advisor Tom Donilon; Chief of Staff Bill Daley; Tony Binken, National Security Advisor to the Vice President; Audrey Tomason Director for Counterterrorism; John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism; and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

MarcelleMarceau May 2, 2011 at 7:17 pm

All snark aside, it's Hillary's expression that tells that tale.

On Saturday night I formulated a plan to win Michelle Obama's heart.

Step 1: Become a professional comedian and get hired for the White House Press Corp dinner where I get to sit next to MO.
Step 2 : While the POTUS is cracking wise at the podium, convince MO she should become Mrs. Just Pixelz.

After seeing Obama's expression in this photo my new plan is to stay home and watch teevee.

Do you think they actually invited Biden or did he just kinda wander in? Also, why is the room so damn small? You think they could assassinate people from somewhere besides a closet

deanbooth May 2, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Fifteen people eventually end up crowded in the room: Obama, Biden, Clinton, Riccardo, two chambermaids, an engineer, a manicurist, the engineer's assistant, a woman looking for her aunt Minnie, a cleaning lady and four stewards with food.

The cleaning lady: "I come to mop up."
Obama: "You'll have to start on the ceiling."

Witnessing the sheer horror that is the “John McCain sex tape.”

You will burn in hell for creating that mental image. Burn. In. HELL.

(p.s. Man, Obama got game face. At the next debate he should just stare his opponent in the eye until this happens [which is also what happens when you watch the "McCain sex tape"].)

DustBowlBlues May 2, 2011 at 6:06 pm

I go with the Celebrity Apprentice caption. Yeah, you fucking moran, Trump: you couldn't handle Hopey making fun of you at the dinner Saturday night. Fuck, you're such a pussy even Seth Meyers made steam come out of your ears. And that was what he did to you in public, you freak.

Hint to Trump: do not let yourself get caught in a room alone with the prez. When you're summoned to the meeting, you step into the office and he nods at the Secret Service Agents, who step out of the room and shut the door behind them, BEG FOR MERCY. Or start saying your beads, or whatever. You are dead meant.

RavenRant May 2, 2011 at 6:27 pm

If Obama ever has a conversation with Trump, he will be smiling and pleasant, and Trump won't get that he's been humorously eviscerated until hours, or even days, later.

Kinda like the WHC Dinner?

Busey or Meatloaf? Yeah, those are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night, Donald.

RavenRant May 3, 2011 at 12:44 am

No, he definitely knew he was being eviscerated then. But only because of the mocking, uproarious laughter all around. I’m envisioning a one-on-one conversation, with PBO setting some deviously brilliant time bombs that will go off in Trump’s psyche when he least expects it. “Wait, what did he… Does that mean…? Something to wake him up at three in the morning for the rest of his unnatural life.

I can't think of a calmer yet more bad-ass prez ever. I mean he must have known this huge shit was going down that could have wrecked his career, ruined the Dem party for 30 more years, gotten Pakistan civilians and SEALs killed if it turned into a usual rescue-mishap snafu/clusterfuck — all the time he was busting on Donald Trump & Fox News at the WH Correspondents Dinner etc.

Repugs could never have ordered this hit — because they would be too frightened if it turned into the "Jimmy Carter Iran rescue" — and they couldn't control the narrative a la the spurious "Jen Lynch rescue" and "Pat Tillman hero."

I take issue only with the fact taht Tillman was a hero. The fact it was friendly fire he was trying to stop doesn't denigrate his efforts – just the trigger happy guys who didn't confirm their targets and the lying sacks of shit who tried to make it a damn Hollywood movie instead of a tragedy.

Whole thing kinda makes me think back to the whole McCain "shut the campaign down" freakout and Obama's response that the President has to be able to handle more than one thing at once.

GuyClinch May 2, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Well put, pedo, I mean, berkeleybear.

carlgt1 May 2, 2011 at 7:31 pm

oops – you're correct of course (I can't edit my original post due to the replies though)

and per the second part of your post — I wish some poli-sci student would come up with a canonical list of all the dumbass stuff Obama had to monitor and attend to (birth certificate ad nauseum, Trump, WH Corr dinner, Breitbart & other attacks ie healthcare & economy etc) while he had to plan/monitor/worry about this serious shit.

And then compare to the usual Repug "SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN AND FOCUS ON ONE THING" ie McCain's ploy you mention, the Terri Sciavo thing etc. It would hopefully put things into perspective – not that Obama is even Superman per se; just that any Repug counterpart you can think of is an absolute idiot.

Mort_Sinclair May 3, 2011 at 11:02 am

Perfect assessment. Thanks for that.

"Repugs could never have ordered this hit — because they would be too frightened if it turned into the "Jimmy Carter Iran rescue" "

I wouldn't be entirely surprised if it later came to light that they'd tried to do exactly this.

Look at Hillary in the photo. Why do women–but not men–always cover their mouths when they get surprising news? Is it to stifle a scream?

axmxz May 2, 2011 at 6:45 pm

I think it's in response to something emotionally trying rather than surprising.

comptoneffect May 2, 2011 at 7:00 pm

It’s because she just got done looking at that full-color photo of Osama’s pancreas on her laptop.

President Palin would be eating a moose burger, for one…

We'd be bombing Iran, for starters.

glamourdammerung May 2, 2011 at 6:36 pm

I am unsure the possibility that the Republicans would be hitting the correct hemisphere is justified. I recall Reagan's response to Iran bombing our forces in Lebanon involved hitting Granada.

Gopherit May 2, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Well, most of our front line forces are already there. And Grenada was part of the great cuban menace. Also, hot med students.

RavenRant May 2, 2011 at 6:55 pm

There are mushroom clouds over a number of muslim population centers, and President Palin is grinning maniacally, knowing she just ushered in End Times, and confident that Jesus will be arriving soon to put her in charge of this sector of Kingdom Come.

(McCain died of 'natural causes' shortly after inauguration. Palin had difficulty suppressing giggles while being sworn in.)

Walnuts would have the same ridiculous expression on his face that he had during that debate when he almost walked into Bammerz. Palin would be in her expensive clothes and glasses, trying to look serious as she holds a newspaper upsidedown. Megs would be adjusting her bra while liveblogging on HuffPo, and Trig would be the one typing on the laptop.

It wouldn't exist, since neither McCain nor Palin could find stink on a skunk, let alone finding Bin Laden.

zappadoo76 May 2, 2011 at 6:36 pm

Guess what, folks. Bin Laden's death is being used to increase police state activities in the US.

On Monday, the NYPD flooded the city’s subway system with additional cops. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, “out of an abundance of caution,” said it has added more police at airports, the George Washington Bridge and ground zero, according to NBC New York.

Amtrak has dispatched canine teams and squads of officers trained to detect the presence of fumes left behind after someone passes through with an explosive device, the San Francisco Chronicle reports this morning.

In Los Angeles, police have begun increasing patrols of religious institutions and other potential terrorist targets, according to Politico.

The government insists the unverified assassination will increase terror attacks and it must redouble its efforts against al-Qaeda, the terror group named after the Mujahideen database.

deanbooth May 2, 2011 at 7:02 pm

1) Obama says we'll be on heightened alert for a while.
2) Police activity suggests we may be on heightened alert.
3) ????????
4) PROFIT!

And your point is? Worried about assault on civil liberties? The dogs are too late — that train has already left the station.

Gopherit May 2, 2011 at 7:41 pm

Seriously. This morning, someone i know said "we're Americans! We don't assassinate for justice!" All I could think was where the fuck had they been? Posse Comitatus was already judged to be quaint but useless. We are in the world of Gitmo, Abu Garaib, warrantless wiretapping, and the poorly named "Patriot" act. You're going to complain now?

He's the only one who has any space around him. I think that's a big non-verbal clue.

Or is that his detachable knee taking up a seat in front of him? And what is that at Biden's elbow? Did he bring a bag of popcorn? Biden!

comptoneffect May 2, 2011 at 6:55 pm

Why the hell is the POTUS jammed in the corner of his death chamber? Shouldn’t he be sitting in a Capt. Kirk-like command chair (with buttons and stuff) in the middle of the room? Looks like he showed up late and got the wobbly chair.

I have to say, given the many disappointments Barry has served up, I have to admire him. I was listening to a pretty detailed report on NPR this evening and even though they had as solid of intelligence they could have, they still didn't know if OBL was actually there. If this picture is any indication, he seems to take ordering people into harm's way seriously.

Youngish New Frontier guy in the blue shirt to the right of Fruit Salad's dreaming of Whole Foods opportunities in newly-discovered Abbottabad, perhaps in a possible suburb of Costelloabad.
