President Obama symbolic visit last week to the "Door of No Return," through which African slaves are said to have passed as they boarded ships for the Americas, most likely was a rubbish chute on Senegal's Goree Island, Britain's Telegraph newspaper reported.

President Obama symbolic visit last week to the “Door of No Return,” through which African slaves are said to have passed as they boarded ships for the Americas, most likely was a rubbish chute on Senegal’s Goree Island, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported.

 

The photo and caption above accompanied Joseph Curl of the Washington Times‘ insightful piece about President Obama standing at his own political “Door of No Return” in Senegal:

Now, President George W. Bush stood at the very same spot in 2003, but at a different place entirely — stunning party pickups in the 2002 midterms, majority in the House and Senate, headed to re-election, on the top of the world. It was a picture, nothing more.

Thursday, though, was some very bad “optics.” President Obama, standing alone, morose, looking down, sullen, mock contemplative, within the Door of No Return. Below him, rust-stained cinder blocks, craggy rocks of a shallow port, the Atlantic Ocean.

So now it’s time for Photo Caption Contest loyalists to write their own captions about whether this photo is a “ bad optic” of Obama’s presidency as Joseph Curl has opined.

Of course our captions must remain classy because the media is watching (even though we no longer care about them.)

But we do care about honoring the Office of the President no matter who occupies it as our nation celebrates independence from that unpopular tyrannical King who only cared about maintaining power and had grown distant from the needs of his subjects with his lavish lifestyle.

Here again are the winners of our last contest whose captions were classy even if the subject matter was not.

Have fun and help us celebrate Independence Day from that dastardly King with a caption fit for our president.

1) When a Door of No Return closes, a window of complete hopelessness opens.

2) Hey, look down there! So, that's where all those freedoms and liberties go when I destroy them!

3) I passed through all the Hope and Change hallways to get here?

4) I followed the Manifesto's directions perfectly...and here I am!

5) Socialism, a road map to here.

No wonder they call this [ The Door of No Return] I just bought this
birth certificate, and my name is spelled Bawana instead of Barack.

There is so much more room here now that it's getting a little full under the bus.

Drat this was where the shovel ready jobs were.

Bill Clinton told me my teleprompter was through here.

First staring at the moon, then sitting on a bus, now staring at a door to nowhere. Bang up job on that legacy.

Who let the President near there without a helmet(and mom jeans).

Call Putin I found a place to put Snowden.

In reality this locale was determined by African historians to not have been the fabled "door of no return" but yes, a non descript warehouse. Secondly, the fabled "40 million"slaves passing through these "portals" was actually a trickle of some estimated or so,"2 million" from a diverse number of regions, slave organizers, traders, slave auction houses and other locales around ALL of Africa. After all, It's called a "Slave Trade" for a reason. Pray. Amen. Obama caught in another "prevarication!"Join a Tea Party!

I gently suggest that this particular photo caption contest is in bad taste.

"A million slaves passed through this door? Pfft, that's nothing. I've got 300 million of 'em back home!"

"Ask not what your country can do for you . . . ask what you can do to continue to keep me coming on these lavish vacations to which I've become accustomed."

"Man, Holder & I could really do some Fast & Furious gunwalking through this door!"
