They’ve got a problem with this?

It would seem so:

An advertising campaign that depicts President Barack Obama kissing two male world leaders on the mouth drew a critical response from the White House on Thursday.

“The White House has a longstanding policy disapproving of the use of the president’s name and likeness for commercial purposes,” said White House Spokesman Eric Schultz.

The “Unhate” campaign for Italian clothing firm Benetton showed various world leaders kissing, including Obama lip-locked with Chinese President Hu Jintao and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, a longtime Washington adversary.

The ad depicting Obama kissing Hu Jintao was simply ridiculous — everybody knows that’s just impossible to do while you’re bowing.

Anyway, somebody needs to tell Sean Penn the above picture is a fake, because he flew into a jealous rage against Obama and had to be restrained while warning the President to “stay the f*#k away from my Hugo“:

    Ridiculous. Everybody knows Obama kisses the other end of the alimentary tract.

    Rush told of a past Russian leader in an un-photoshopped pic in a tonsil swabbing with another pres.

    Sean, jealousy is so un-becoming a famous person such as yourself ! *cough, spit, gag*

    Dang, now where is my jug of brain bleach ? Does anyone know if brain bleach is too strong for the eyes ?

    I saw the one of the Pope and was deeply offended. I didn't know Muslims had altar boys.

    So Obama's issue with these pictures is not content but that “The White House has a longstanding policy disapproving of the use of the president’s name and likeness for commercial purposes,”

    O-o-o-k-a-a-a-a-y-y……

    (Hands! Where are the hands? Show us your hands!)

    Now that`s just gross ! Right, but gross ! ;-)

  12. Marshall_Will on November 18th, 2011 12:06 pm

    Well, how long have we been sayin' these two should just get a room? As for the hands, prom chaperones would not approve. ( TSA 'would' however )

    I'm guessing a two-handed, mutual full cheek embrace.

    I'm thinking that picture gives a$$ kissing a whole new meaning.

    Next thing you know, we'll be seeing Photoshopped pics of him kissing Michelle.

    Their only beef is that it's being used for "commercial purposes"??

  15. Marshall_Will on November 18th, 2011 1:15 pm

    “The White House has a longstanding policy disapproving of the use of the president’s name and likeness for commercial purposes,”

    So we've taken the liberties to "fundamentally change" the way we do things? Didn't think you'd mind! 'I' think they make a lovely couple…

    He wasn't bothered when they were trying to peddle HAMP and their mortgage bailout schemes when every pop up ad in AMERICA said "New Obama LAW allows you to re-finance your mortgage at crazy LOW rates!?"

    Gotta' picture of Him looking all serious and determined with that chin jutt thing goin' on! So you know it's fo' realz.
