If he was an Ebay seller, I wonder how Obama knew it. If he wasn't an Ebay seller and was just some guy trying to collect pics of the 3 candidates, then what a jackass.

Why the hell was that idiot allowed to get right up to Obama like that and continue pestering him? His security should've stepped in earlier.

(...in a very nice way, like he does when he shakes peoples hand) ... (slightly annoyed) ... (very annoyed) ... (non confrontationally)...

"gangsta" indeed.

I'm not sure what value pictures of Obama with random people are on Ebay in any case. Maybe there's a market there I don't know about.

They are everywhere.

Whether this guy is an eBay guy or not, isn't so much the point. Obama takes photos with people all the time. They obviously felt differently about this guy than they did about lots of other people.

Picture seeker "Mr. Obama - can you please take a picture with me?"

Obama; "I will rain Jihad on yo white ass. Darka darka Jihad, bitch"

I'm not sure white resentment is the only thing that applies here.

Could just be me.

Funny thing is, if you read the link I provided above, that photo is of a guy who just gave Obama a Steven Colbert "WristStrong" wrist band (to raise awareness of wrist injuries) to wear (he put it on and posed for the photo).

I imagine that the political trail is about like the NFL with the collectors. Every time I'd go to the player's hotels, there were always these freaking sychophants who had huge bags of shit they were trying to get signed, most of which they were going to try to sell on EBay the next day. The players all recognized them and even knew some of them by name. It wasn't a big secret or hard to tell who they were. Some players would amuse them if they had the time and inclination, others would be hugely annoyed by them. Almost all would be annoyed by them if they were trying to have quality time with their families and these hounds kept interrupting and harassing them. It's probably about the same on the campaign trail.
