Bag’s Take-Away:
Another wire photo of Obama’s former nanny, a transsexual woman living in Indonesia. Still respectful, surprisingly.

(photo credit:  AP Photo caption:  Barack Obama’s former nanny Evie, right, shares a light moment with neighbors at her boarding house in Jakarta, Indonesia, Thursday, March 8, 2012. Since being the subject of a recent article by The Associated Press about the struggles of transgender people in this predominantly Muslim nation, the 66-year-old is overwhelmed by her jolt from transgender slum-dweller to local celebrity. TV crews troop in and out of her tiny concrete hovel. Estranged relatives finally want to meet. She even has a promising job offer.

Bag’s Take-Away:
They Think the Obama, Harvard, Derrick Bell Video Makes the President Look Bad? Look Again. 
What you’ll see is a young Obama sounding a lot like the current president: consistent, durable and non-dangerous. And what you’ll notice is Obama’s ability, even then, to elevate at the key moment and not just engage, but captivate people’s attention.
Not quite the bombshell Breitbart was hoping for.

Bag’s Take-Away:

It’s impressive how the White House handled Netanyahu this week, especially optically (versus all these other times). Rather than encourage blowback with the public finger-wagging of a year ago May, Obama treated the war drum-pounding PM with straight-faced respect in a White House video. In Monday’s White House “Photo of the Day,” however, the day Bibi was on premises, Obama and Sec. of State Clinton are confidently featured but the visit is ignored.

Benjamin Netanyahu is captured at a relatively uncovered AIPAC speech flogging the Auschwitz comparison again. Apparently, he’s holding a 1944 letter from the World Jewish Congress to the U.S. War Department in which the WJC asked the U.S. to bomb Auschwitz. The U.S. refused. See what happened? 
Iran would be just like that. Sigh.

(photo credit: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images  caption: WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 05: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holds copies of 1944 correspondence asking the U.S. War Department to bomb the Auschwitz concentration camp while addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy conference at the Washington Convention Center March 5, 2012 in Washington, DC. Netanyahu met earlier in the day with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House where they discussed Iran. With more than 100,000 members, AIPAC is perhaps the most prominent organizations lobbying the United States government on behalf of Israel.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

Uploaded a few days before the latest GOP debate, this photo of Obama, looking large/strong, talking to the Egyptian Field Marshal with an aide in the foreground on her knees, makes for an interesting contrast with the picture being constructed by the GOP candidates of a timid, feckless President.

Is there some trepidation on Obama’s part in his manner and placement below the group of burley white guy public sector workers or does it just strike me that way because of the odd entitlement to be disrespectful to the President floating around?
