    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.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    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 was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
