"POTUS speech research" is the official White House caption.

“POTUS speech research” is the official White House caption.

 

Today Politico featured this heartwarming piece with the headline, ”Backstage SOTU peek on Instagram.”

The White House, which is no stranger to social media, took to Instagram on Wednesday to give Americans a behind-the-scenes look as the president prepares his State of the Union address. President Barack Obama’s chief speechwriter, Cody Keenan, took over the White House Instagram account to post a few snapshots of the speech being prepared.

The series of five images shows Keenan at Obama’s desk discussing a speech draft; a fat binder and stack of papers labeled “POTUS speech research” next to a cup of coffee bearing the presidential seal; …..

 STOP RIGHT THERE! 

Is this the most perfect photo for a photo caption contest in our glorious history of photo caption contests?

For now we have proof that Clint Eastwood’s empty chair from the stage of the 2012 Republican National Convention resides in the White House speech writing room!

Eastwood’s infamous “empty chair performance” has personal meaning for me because I was in the audience watching, thinking and HOPING that his act was playing out better on television then it was in the Tampa convention center. But I was wrong because it came across WORSE!

So back to now….just how much fun will our brilliant, creative and snarky readers have while writing captions for this photo?

How many hilarious “thought bubbles” will emanate from the chair, the coffee cup, the binders full of  ___.

I can hardly wait…..

Chair - "hey coffee, what did he mean when he said he's a better chair than my chair?!?"
Coffee - "inequality. . . spread it around . . . racist . . . CRUZ!!!!"
Binder - "Chair, just ignore him. He's been drunk."

Nothing is written on the paper because Obama can only read off his teleprompter.

From the looks of all that blank paper, Obama may have a pen, but he clearly doesn't know how to use it.

Chris Henderson, has asked me to relay this message to Myra, as follows:

"I never should have gotten on the ObamaCare Website! Three seconds after I did, my computer crashed. As soon as I get a new one (and escape this latest Obama Re-Education Camp), I'll be back!" :-)

P.S. Thanks for thinking of me! Seriously, my computer is completely down. ZipCode was kind enough to let me use his.

How is the food in Re-education camp? Do they only feed you meals approved by Michelle? Arugula and tofu on Veggie burgers with gluten free bread?
Do they make you watch MSNBC non-stop? Do you have to go to classes with Rev Sharpton and Rachael Maddow? I bet you are so sick of only reading the New York Times, Mother Jones and Salon. All your friends at the Caption Contest have tied yellow ribbons around the old oak tree and hope that you will be the same person when you return. STAY STRONG!!!

The library there consisted only of Obama's autobiography and other books written by Bill Ayres. And they erased all the songs on my iPod and replaced them with Obama speeches.

I'd still be there if ZipCode hadn't sent me a cake with a file hidden in in it. I told the guards (ACORN Staffers) it was from the Muslim Brotherhood, so they then refused to search it.

Our prayers have been answered!
We can all take down the yellow ribbons. I know this is painful to talk about, but did they tatoo a big O on your arm? When are you going on Bill O'Reilly to talk about your experience? Did you see any new construction going on using recycled Chevy Volt parts? I hear Obama is helping Hillary build a new annex in time for 2017.
