Bag’s Take-Away:

Well, it was hardly avoidable, especially as TV zoomed in closer on the pair. In the background of the Obama - Romney White House pic, the boxing gloves stand out at the not-so-vanishing point like an alarm. It wouldn’t have anything to do with Obama coming out swinging after Nov 7, would it? On the table, by the way, is the white turkey chili that was on the menu. Serving (a) white turkey, get it?? And then another nice touch: in the Today piece there is actually quote from the Majority Leader (and former boxer) about the photo. Reid said he liked it.

Bag’s Take-Away:

People will flinch from the comparison for a million reasons. Still, swap candid for composed, Main Street for Camelot, and name-the-city “local legend” fast food joint for haute cuisine and, optically at least, you’ve got Obama looking — at least now, in full campaign mode — like 2012’s JFK.  

The fact is, Obama is knocking the stuffing out of Romney visually. These days, in the camera’s eye, he’s, yeah: special, original, favorite, hot, fast and great. As much for the content as the fact it largely slipped everyone else’s attention, it’s my favorite pic of the campaign so far.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Every so often, campaign compassion and campaign emotion is interrupted and caused to pale by the deeper and more spontaneous kind.  

The caption:

Stephanie Miller of Sandusky Ohio cries on the shoulder of U.S. President Barack Obama at a campaign event at Washington Park in Sandusky, Ohio July 5, 2012. Miller’s sister died of cancer and said that Obama’s healthcare plan would have given her better treatment options.

Remember blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangchen? Romney used his departure from the U.S. embassy in Beijing to  declare a day of shame for the United States because the U.S. was too busy planning the Clinton/Geithner talks to keep him safe? Here he is with his family in Central Park.
Looking pretty safe to me.

Chen, who is a self taught lawyer who is front and center in a diplomatic rift between China and the United States, seemed to be enjoying the sunlight - reportedly the first time his has sat in it for years. He was joined by his wife and children on the trip out in his wheelchair.)
