This is freaky. Check out his smile. It doesn’t move through thirty pictures. There’s something a bit scary about it. Who can smile the same exact way all those times?

Why does Obama have the same suit and tie on in every picture? Is that the presidential "uniform" ?
Just wondering. He gives me the creeps for a lot of other reasons.

I've long held that he's a Cylon. Now we know.

I've always told people that the only thing I like about Barack Obama is his smile.
I didn't vote for him, couldn't stand his politics, didn't like his belief, hated his style of speaking through both side of his mouth, hated his cronies, etc. But I couldn't explain why I honestly like his smile.
Now I know. It's the only thing that is consistent about him.

1) Muscle memory.
2) How many ways do YOU smile?

He's not the only one. Paris Hilton's got that sly grin with the head tilt thing going on. Someone once did a photo montage of her holding it the same way through dozens of pictures.

I would go with what everyone else has said thus far however his outfit doesn't move, his hands are in the EXACT same position, heck even his eyes don't move throughout the timelapse.
Very weird, interesting, but weird. And I agree with you Marie… the ONLY thing I've ever thought positively about Obama was that he has a nice smile.

Maybe it's a cardboard cutout.

Don't all politicians have to develop a "camera smile" for the dozens and hundreds of campaign speeches, meetings, conventions and whatnot where they are going to have their pictures taken? I agree with almost nothing that this President stands for, but this particular criticism seems a little cheap.

Mark of the beast.

His clothes are the same because this video was mad from 130 photos taken on the same evening. From the link:
On Wednesday, the Obamas hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, during which they stood for 130 photographs with visiting foreign dignitaries in town for the UN meeting. The President has exactly the same smile in every single shot. See for yourself — the pictures are up on the State Department’s flickr (link below). And, of course, compressed into 20 seconds for your viewing pleasure.

Our bishop has the same smile and look in his eye. And he will most likely be president of the UCCB next time. YIKES!

Best comment ever, Marie. Ultimate win.

I'm not bothered by a practiced smile. There's plenty of other things about the President with which to find fault.
September 27, 2009 at 5:00 am
Trivial. Any president would have a similar effect if you string together that many pics all taken on the same occasion.

And maybe now you have an idea why an Italian exorcist
has advised against watching and/or listening to Obama
September 28, 2009 at 7:46 pm
Matthew, I know you are writing for an audience, but I am worried that this type of post may detract from your credibility on other more serious posts about Obama's policy.
Sorry for being a bummer!

It is just freaky. Not reading into it. It's just…freaky.
