We’re trying to imagine the uproar if George Bush had posed with a Jesus statue the day after the Iraq War started.
We tried. We really tried. But our feeble brains are incapable of comprehending the uproar that would resulted in the media and in the Arab world if George W. Bush had posed with a giant statue called Christ the Redeemer the day after launching the Iraq War.
If you’ll pardon the expression, holy hell would have broken loose.
As National Review said, tongue planted firmly in cheek, “Theocracy! Crusades! “Insensitivity,” at a minimum.”
We’re not sure which of these photos we like better – the one shot from the front showing the whole Obama family gazing up in awed silence at Christ the Redeemer or the one that shows them from behind with the icon statue in the background.
George Bush would have been, if you’ll pardon another expression, crucified for either photo.
IMPEACH THE ILLEGAL ALIEN MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!!!
