'Every Picture Tells A Story, Don't It?'

It's a revealing study in character, isn't it?

From American Thinker:
"I am stunned that the official White House Blog published this picture and that it is in the public domain. The body language is most revealing.

Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant that he is oblivious?

In my own dealings with the wealthy and powerful, I have always found that the way to quickly capture the moral essence of a person is to watch how they treat those who are less powerful. Do they understand that the others are also human beings with feelings? Especially when they think nobody is looking."
For a vivid contrast, look at the other picture at the link, and note the updated comments.

  1. This pic speaks volumes to the character of the two players, Obama and Sgt. Crowley.
    It also speaks volumes to the character of law enforcement officers versus politicians.
