Is President Obama a Republican? Newswire points out President in Turkey photo

Is President Obama a Republican?


U.S. President Barack Obama (R) REUTERS-Jason Reed
In Reuters story,  Obama pardons holiday turkeys, a photo appears with the caption, “U.S. President Barack Obama (R) watches as his daughter Malia pets the 2011 Thanksgiving Turkey, Liberty”
Now at first glance, we thought Reuters had made a grave mistake.  We checked our calender and it clearly was not April 1st, it was in fact November 24th, and we knew Obama hadn’t changed his political affiliation overnight. (We keep our eye on such things)
So how could Reuters place an (R) after the Presidents Name?  Well, take a look at the photo and you will see that Obama is the one who is standing to the (Right) of the Turkey.  Oh, we all needed some editor to tell us Obama is the one on the right!

That's funny. It's so hard to tell these days, you know, the distinction between Democrat and Republican being blurred because they (each and all) are so deeply concerned with being subservient to Big Corporations and Big Money.
