News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. May 2, 2014: Well this is better than I ever expected!
Normally when I use The New York Times as my media “partner,”  I have to explain what they are really saying about Barack Obama but not this time.

I am even using the headline from their story as mine this week.

This time The Times gives us the REAL Barack Obama. Justice for Obama!

Here we go … let me quote The Times starting right now …

“Five-and-a-half years into his presidency, Mr. Obama has had a powerful impact on the nation’s popular culture. But what many screenwriters, novelists and visual artists have seized on is not an inspirational story of the first black president. Instead they have found more compelling story lines in the bleaker, morally fraught parts of Mr. Obama’s legacy.”

YES! YES! YES! Again …

“But what many screenwriters, novelists and visual artists have seized on is not an inspirational story of the first black president. Instead they have found more compelling story lines in the bleaker, morally fraught parts of Mr. Obama’s legacy.”

The REAL President Barack Obama The Drone Master!!

More from The Times ….

“We were trying to find a bridge to the same sort of questions that Barack Obama has to address,” said Joe Russo, who with his brother, Anthony, directed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” “If you’re saying with a drone strike, we can eradicate an enemy of the state, what if you say with 100 drone strikes, we can eradicate 100? With 1,000, we can eradicate 1,000? At what point do you stop?”

That is right. President Obama is the inspiration for the New Captain America movie in which DRONES are the other central character. Captain America launches them with abandon just like Barack Obama.

Collateral damage; DEAD civilians, who cares! we must stop the Bad Guys at any cost. All the rest is irrelevant. Dead foreigners – no big deal!.

Back to The Times story …

“The public relations machinery of the White House assiduously tries to control Mr. Obama’s image and legacy, but there is nothing it can do to stop artistic interpretation of his policies. After inheriting a post-Sept. 11 surveillance state and security apparatus from President George W. Bush, Mr. Obama pulled back in some areas and expanded others. Artists have focused particularly on the N.S.A. spying revelations disclosed by Edward J. Snowden and the president’s “kill list” of terrorists targeted by drones.”

And how “good” is this from The Times story …

“The drone wars are one of Obama’s signature foreign policies,” said Trevor Paglen, a photographer whose fuzzy images of flying drones are exhibited in galleries around the world. “We are living in a moment that’s characterized by this mass surveillance. I think art can help us call attention to certain things. It can help contribute to the cultural vocabulary that we use.”

How about this …

“In the Captain America movie, a politician played by Robert Redford argues that using super-drones to preemptively kill 20 million people to save the planet’s other seven billion is an acceptable trade-off.”

Too bad President Obama can only dream of such a wonderful opportunity coming his way. Too bad movies are better than reality.

I don’t want to spoil the mood or the image by adding unnecessary additional material from my brilliant mind. Better that we savor the image of President Barack Obama in his Captain America uniform.

Captain America Barack Obama The Drone Master.

Perfect image for the Obama Presidency to live on forever.

Thank you New York Times,Obama’s America’s media “partner.”
