We came across a few pictures of Obama recently – he was making some really awkward faces. To the point that we felt uncomfortable FOR him. But it got us thinking. Were there awkward pictures of the other candidates from the 2012 US Presidential election?
I imagine one of the harder aspects for the candidates is dealing with the press coverage. On the one hand, you want to have your name out there everywhere and all the time so that voters get to know you and remember your name when they get to the voting booth. But on the other hand, I imagine there are just some times when you wish the photographers weren’t around to capture that particular moment. Whether it was a funny face, an uncomfortable slip, a regrettable wayward look, or a moment of reckless abandon that they wish they could take back, each candidate has a photo or two that I’m sure they’d like to stay hidden.
But we wanted to share a few with you that we found on our new 2012 US Presidential election photo website (it has only political photos so you can easily find the right photo of the candidate that you need – whether it’s a serious photo or an awkward one). Hopefully they won’t change your opinion of any of the current candidates. This blog post isn’t meant as a political statement, it’s all in good fun. Although I now realize that Obama is just an awkward human being. We had way too many awkward pictures of him, sure there’s always photographers around, but does he always have to make a weird face around children?
So let us know, which picture is most awkward? Some are only awkward if taken out of context … and perhaps some are only awkward to me. But each one of these pictures made me laugh, so I hope they’ll make you laugh too.
OK, that one isn’t really awkward. But when I saw it I immediately thought of zombies.
Again, maybe not awkward in context. But I thought macarena.
