A picture is making the rounds amongst my liberal Facebook friends, complete with the caption that “This says it all to me.”
I’m actually not sure what “all” the picture says. That Romney smiles at people performing a service for him while Obama gives them a fist bump?
If the Obama picture had shown him grabbing the mop from the janitor and himself scrubbing the floors, I might have been more impressed. But the fact that he fist bumps for the camera really doesn’t tell me anything at all. Likewise, I’d be interested in know what the tip and salary the tarmac guy helping Romney received versus what the custodian greeting Obama earns. That information might actually tell us something . . . or not.
The one thing I can assure you is that pairing those two pictures tells me nothing about Obama’s and Romney’s individual merit or their ability to govern the United States of America. It does, however, tell me a lot about Progressives that they can look at these two out-of-context pictures and seem to find some deep meaning — and what it tells me is that, if these voters prevail again in November — we’re in serious trouble.
UPDATE: Thanks to Plain ol’ Charles, we now know that Romney wasn’t the effete rich guy having his shoes cleaned, he was getting a pre-flight security check.
