The media is more powerful than a Spock mind meld.
It assumes they each HAVE a heart to put their right hand over?
thank you... thank you verruh much...
No ... but a good statement for many politicians.
They're all white, oh jesus here they come vinnie shut the door.
Paul has distanced himself from the others or the other three have distanced themselves from him
Camera angle makes him appear much smaller ...
A picture to portray a man as a lesser man if ever I saw one.
Media is going out of their way to ensure he does not make it.
But, Icy, he IS smaller. I looked up the heights of each man and they correspond to the picture pretty much. Rick Santorum is 6'4", Romney is 6"2", Newt is an even 6 foot and Ron Paul (as far as I can tell from different web sites) is around 5'10" and may be a bit smaller due to the natural aging process.
He's also a fairly thin man...which makes a person look smaller than what they are when standing next to an overweight man such as Newt.
The media's not too nice to Ron Paul, I agree, but I think this is reaching.
Interestingly, it seems like 3 of them have their hands over the "iconic" heart, way over on the left side, whereas Paul, the physician, has his hand closer to his literal heart, just a little to the left of the center of the chest
He's also apparently unaware of which camera he should be looking at, and he'll be damned if he's following the crowd. Or maybe it's a special different libertarian paper shooting from another angle, and he made a conscious decision
Reminds me of:
WHY DOESN'T EVERYONE HAVE THEIR FLAG PIN ON?????????
Don't they know you can't possibly love America if you don't have your flag pin on?
Yes ... oldest trick in the book and photos for the most part can send subliminal messages.
I liked how he stood apart from the "Status Quo"... It was physical representation with what choices you really have.
Those 3 guys saying the same stuff with different words, or Ron Paul.
Paul is the only veteran of the 4.....
Separate names with a comma.
