Bag’s Take-Away:
 I guess it wasn’t an option for the NYT to simply ignore a new book of economic proposals, these essays brought forth by one George W. Bush. (He’s purported to have also written the introduction.) Given the photo they chose to accompany the article, however, seems we’re just looking at more backlash.

Faces of Bush

Bag’s Take-Away:

Different angles on photojournalism, and faces of Bush.

I was looking at the photos from the White House portrait unveiling yesterday, and how insightful a photo can be. Above we have Bush with Bush by AP’s Charles Dharapak. That’s the Bush we’re familiar with, the body language like a goof. He’s also looking washed out since the Oval Office days. Some might see evidence of hitting the sauce.

In marked contrast, this is a quite a rare shot of Bush by AP’s Carolyn Kaster. It offers Dubya not only  not looking like a goof, but appearing reflective even, wistful. And where was he the whole time?

…Maybe there’s some recognition in Bush’s reaction about how portrait’s lie, the painting — representing a gravitas he never achieved — burying the smirk forever.

Bag’s Take-Away:

This scary, floating, transparent head is the first and last reference to George Bush you’ll see this election season, guaranteed - based on a “one off” wire photo capturing Dubya’s reflection in a framed picture at RNC HQ. Of course, no one’s willing to say it out loud (at least on the GOP side), but the man’s a pariah.

Bush during a news conference at the Republican National Committee offices on Capitol Hill December 7, 2011 in Washington, DC. Boehner refused to answer questions about former Speaker and current Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s leadership while in the House during the 1990s.)
