Bag’s Take-Away:


On a wave and a prayer? Given his anti-government mantra, you’ve got to love the irony of all these otherwise-tragic photos of Louisiana flood victims shot from Romney’s motorcade. Talk about up shit’s creek without a paddle.

Bag’s Take-Away:

I have to think the Romney Camp is ecstatic with TIME’s Convention cover photo. It’s not just the least robotic and tight pic I’ve seen, but probably the most personable photo the man has ever taken. If you don’t see fans on the campaign trail waving it around, I’ll be surprised.

Bag’s Take-Away:

American pies and Veep candidate Paul Romney Jr. aside, I’m a sucker for any photo that shows Mitt with his wallet out fondling the benjamins. (In this case, I also wasted a good five minutes of Google Image time having fantasized that that was a Social Security card in his wallet when it was actually American Express.)

(photo: Justin Sullivan/Getty Images caption: Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney purchases pies at Homemades by Suzanne during a campaign stop August 11, 2012 in Ashland, Virginia. Mitt Romney kicked off a four day bus tour with an announcement of his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).)

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.

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.
