Why is it we see so few unflattering photos of Obama? Is it because he’s “always on” or simply photogenic? I don’t know, but this rare unflattering photo of the President (in which the lighting also makes his skin tone seem to be darker than real life) is notable for its uniqueness.
(credit: Doug Mills/The New York Times caption: On his trip to New York City on Monday, Mr. Obama made stops at two fund-raisers, this one at the Rubin Museum of Art. His campaign took in $25.7 million in April, a drop of about $10 million from March, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday afternoon.)
