Arrogance: Obama Unveils New Portrait that is Dozens of Times Larger Than Washington’s & Lincoln’s

-By Warner Todd Huston

The U.S. Embassy in London has debuted a new portrait of President Obama that will now hang in one of the big halls in that facility. Strangely Obama’s arrogant head is hundreds of times larger than presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

In fact, the photo is rather spooky. Sort of like a Big Brother head looking out into the room. Certainly the arrogance factor is there as Obama’s gigantic Big Brother head is there spying on the room!

I don’t know about you, but I think if I were to go to this US embassy, the giant Obama face would scare the crap outta me!

Regardless, it is certainly gauche, this portrait. Look at how much bigger Obama’s face is than that of George Washington, the Father of our Country and that of Abe Lincoln, one who many say is the savior of the union and the emancipator of the slaves. Just who does Obama think he is, anyway?

The jokes of his arrogance and his assumption that he is America’s “dear leader” is certainly borne out with this absurd portrait, isn’t it?

Now, how do you think Brits feel about this portrait? After all, Obama is being excoriated in every country on the planet for the Big Brother, surveillance state he’s built up. Do you think Brits will enter this hall, see this giant Barack head, and instantly think that Big Brother is watching them, equating the whole thing to Obama’s abuse of America’s spy agencies?

How could they not?
