PALM BEACH, Fla. – With Halloween less than two weeks away, radio giant Rush Limbaugh took a brief moment today to say President Obama looks “demonic” in some wire-service photographs posted online at the Drudge Report.
President Obama campaigning for the re-election of Democrats over the weekend.
“These pictures, they look demonic. And I don’t say this lightly,” Limbaugh said as he opened his program.
“There are a couple pictures, and the eyes, I’m not saying anything here, but just look,” he remarked about the president who has been campaigning for the re-election of fellow Democrats.
“It is strange that these pictures would be released … it’s very, very, very strange.”
“An American president has never had facial expressions like this,” Limbaugh said. “At least we’ve never seen photos of an American president with facial expressions like this.”
Ironically, President Obama’s weekend theme on the campaign trail has been one of fear.
“People out there are still hurting very badly, and they are still scared. And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama said Saturday in Boston at a fundraiser for Democrats fundraiser. “And the country is scared, and they have good reason to be.”
“The ‘eyes’ have it! Demonic, devilish, you name it!” said Jack Sherratt of Burlingame, Calif., upon seeing Obama’s photos. “Those people come from the very same ‘cloth.’ Obama appears to be more like Lucifer since the days he was recorded in the Old Testament.”
The images have even prompted a Christian minister to consider apocalyptic possibilities regarding Obama.
“Could this be an accurate fulfillment of the biblical passage in Revelation 13:14 through 14:11 relating to the image of the beast that speaks?” asks Pastor Thomas Belcher of Canada.
“Could a more sinister set of circumstances put power in his hands as commander in chief to ’cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed’?
“Considering how he has trampled on the very Constitution that he has sworn to uphold, is he the man?”

Last month, a Reuters photo of Hillary Clinton was taken through the viewfinder of another camera, giving the secretary of state a startling appearance.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received prominent play in the Drudge Report when a Reuters photograph gave her a unique look last month.
The Drudge Report posted the image as its lead story with the screaming headline: “Hillary Horror: ‘Demon’ Photo Moved on Wire.”
Original AP photo
Manipulated Associated Press photo of Condoleezza Rice published online by USA Today
And as WND reported five years ago, in the week before Halloween, USA Today pulled a photograph of then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice from its website after a weblog revealed it was manipulated, giving the secretary of state a menacing, demon-eyesing stare.
After a host of blogs highlighted the photo, the nationwide newspaper removed it with this explanation:
Editor’s note: The photo of Condoleezza Rice
that originally accompanied this story was altered in a manner that did
not meet USA TODAY’s editorial standards. The photo has been replaced
by a properly adjusted copy. Photos published online are routinely
cropped for size and adjusted for brightness and sharpness to optimize
their appearance. In this case, after sharpening the photo for clarity,
the editor brightened a portion of Rice’s face, giving her eyes an
unnatural appearance. This resulted in a distortion of the original not
in keeping with our editorial standards.
