I think you are seeing the sky (where it looks lighter), adjusting for the refraction of the lens.

43. It's a bad photoshop.

The President's image was cut out and put on a solid background. That bulge is likely some sort of shadow. They also cut off part of the frames on his left side, and it looks like maybe part of his ear, too.

49. Actually

Your photo was taken "a few seconds" EARLIER, as the President was still climbing the stairs. The photo I used was taken once he reached the top. Note the clouds in the background of my photo, located along the bottom edge. This would be logically consistent with a photographer shooting in a more upward orientation, catching more blue sky above the President. There may have been some slight color manipulation (brightness/contrast) but there was no Photoshop cut/paste of the President from one image onto a different background as you previously stated.

There are also images of the President getting OFF the plane. It was considerably more exposed and windier at the top (mine) of the staircase than at the bottom (yours), hence the fluttering tie.

But who cares, really.
Have a nice day!

This is just the biggest bullshit line ever!

I live in Detroit. MI.

I'm a Detroit Lions fan.

This is what we say about our football team.

We make excuses, we bullshit each other, so we feel good about stuff.

The Man failed. He did not complete a pass. The running game sucked.
Special teams let up BIG time.

Oh Yeah, although we had game film, we just were too tired or too busy to prep for the game.
Fuck that premise!! YOU FUCKED UP!!

It's just bullshit, pooped to make you feel better about yourself.

Admit failure, admit complacency, come out fighting the next game.

Please don't spread this shit around, My garden needs more fertilizer than the political race.

STOP RECONSIDER, Change the game plan.

STOP BEING SO %**&&^$ nice!~!!

JUST WIN!!!

Edited to add.

This is why we will lose this election, believe this shit and start practicing to say "President Romney".

if he had, no one would be talking about the jobless numbers today.

all the talk is still centering around mittiot lying.

and by reason and logic, lying does not win debates.

mittiot put on a real good show and he bamboozled a lot of people with that shit. All fluff and no substance.

anyone know what his economic policies are? Oh, I supposed they're going to trust a liar with their future...

He had Romney just where we all wanted him and then he
let him regain momentum. Rationalizing his performance are not
going to help us regain what we have lost over this week or win
this election. Let's admit this was a disaster and get back to regaining
what has been lost.

Obama's winning the war while you refight the last battle.

Romney might have gotten a 12 hour bounce, but he's getting slaughtered because Obama let him stew in his lies without incurring the cost of looking like a schoolyard whiner. "But, but, but ... !!1!"

17. The Lions lose no matter how much they "prepare." It's a 40-year 'habit.'

They're a third-rate football team owned by a scum-bucket Greedy Old Plutocrat who's been fucking over the Detroit fans and TAKING THEIR MONEY for over forty years.

Obama is a first-rate President, first-rate human being, and first-rate family man who decided to NOT get into a name-calling, mud-slinging contest with a PIG. The MittWit can LIE faster than ANYONE can keep up with the FACTS.

It's "no-drama" Obama and the discontent on the Left with his 'performance' is 99% due to us wanting to jam our fists down the MittWit's throat. WE scream at the TV and want our ire to be sublimated. Obama ain't in the sublimation game. There's only ONE "win" that counts and it's on November 6th.

I encourage EVERY Obama supporter to Get Out The Vote -- EVERY vote -- because even a landslide ain't enough. The MittWit and his Reich Wing cronies need to be BURIED ... and every shovel-full counts. 60% to 40% ain't even enough ... if it can be 61% to 39%. EVERY shovel-full counts.

47. Maybe he doesn't like funny JPEGs. It's clearly meant in fun, not literal.

Obviously, the president didn't lose debate preparation time because he was getting unemployment down... the economy is a long, slow process, and the wheels have been in motion for a long time.

I think this person needs to relax just a tiny bit. I do understand the concern. I agree the president didn't present himself as well as he could have on Wednesday, but lets also welcome good news, and take a moment to smile.
