President Iceburg Slim?
Let's get real A photo of Barack with a "Panama" hat on smoking a "cigarette"would have done some damage. About the same amount as his wife's "down right mean" comment would have done.People seen how the contrive "flag pin" thing energized both sides.We know he smokes cigarettes and he used to smoke "weed".Some people just needed a excuse to hate "President Iceburg Slim". I was in High School in the late eighties. My yearbook looked like a Madonna and Prince concert on MTV.Just be glad Barack looked like one of the Commodores and not like Morris Day and the Time.
Summary: Discussing 1980 photos of President-elect Barack Obama published in Time, Sean Hannity asked, "[W]hy didn't we see these pictures beforehand?" and "You think the media maybe thought, well, it might not hurt -- it might not help Barack Obama?" Similarly, Fox News hosts asked, "Was Time magazine sitting on these photos until after the election?" In fact, according to Time, the photographer, Lisa Jack, a fellow student of Obama's at the time and now a psychologist, "put the negatives in a safety-deposit box, so that they could not be used until after the election."
