I'm removing my original posts and I'd delete the thread if I could
My mistake was not seeing this as something controversial.
It was just a picture of the president holding a fly rod and not some political statement.

Well congratulations Mr. President on your new rig!

I wonder what kind of rod and reel? Nice high celings there for practice, although I'd rather see a casting pool in the Rose Garden area. Just be glad it didn't take 50 years for you to get a fly rod.

PS. I don't see anything political about this post other than the fact that the guy holding the rod is the president; so Please, lets keep it that way.

The news is a little miss leading, the picture with the President holding the rod is from 2009. I do hope he gets to use it more soon.

I'll second that. Funny how we got Carter and Obama in the same thread and it's not titled ...........
