Obama Criticized for ‘Honoring’ Rosa Parks by Tweeting Photo — of Himself

Obama Rosa Parks

The following are not my words:

From MSN NOW:

What photograph could best convey the importance of civil rights figure Rosa Parks? An image of her with Martin Luther King, Jr.? Her black-and-white booking photo? How about a picture of Barack Obama sitting on a bus? The latter was the (perhaps poor) choice the president made yesterday when he honored the 55th anniversary of Parks’ bus protest by tweeting an image of himself taken in April at the Henry Ford Museum. Conservative websites were quick to call the commander in chief a “narcissist” and Twitter users have blasted him as egotistical and grandiose. Come on, prez, didn’t you learn anything after the Neil Armstrong fiasco?

From Twitchy.com:

Just when you think President Obama’s impossibly large ego can’t grow further, he makes it happen!

President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image.

And the narcissism continues: To honor the 57th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, President Obama paid homage with a picture of himself.

A personal moment, giving him to time to reflect, as always, on himself.

Rosa Parks’ history? She didn’t build that without Obama’s help. Criminy! Even honoring Rosa Parks is simply yet another reason for President Obama to stroke his own ego.

      Good Morning :waves:

      No disrespect to Rosa Parks… but she is often mentioned at the forefront of the story when so many other people were involved and instrumental in the movement and that irks me. Moving along, great shot of the Prez, its not narcissistic at all imo. That image is telling a story, but you’d have to see the image beyond first glance to read it. All in your own interpretation and perspective.

      What this photo says to me is that all their efforts during the civil rights movement have paid off, and paved the way for the United States to have a black president. I think this was a great way to honor Rosa Parks. Whether people agree with it or not, President Obama is a huge part of black history, along with Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and several others. It’s not egotistical, or grandiose. It’s real! He is the culmination of years of work, and hatred that blacks have experienced down through the years. He’s great, and there’s nothing anyone can do about that! Get over it!

      I do not see this shot as being disrespectful…but I think a more powerful photo would have been with a split screen of Rosa Parks on the bus and him in the Oval Office in all his Presidential Grandeur.
