Magazine Photoshops the Black Off Barack

4/21/2009 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama on the cover of the new issue of the Washingtonian (left) and the exact same candid pic that TMZ posted in December (right).

The editor-at-large tells TMZ the decision to change Obama's swimsuit from black to red was "purely artistic" because of the background being black.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Are you kidding me? This guys is a joke as POTUS! Someday you kool aid drinkers will wake up and realize "what" you elected into office. He makes Jimmy Carter look good.

How many more days are left of this presidency. This is just plain scarey. Hoping we can recover before it's too late.

who has the facts? ME    

Let's see...
President Nixon gave Soviet leader Brezhnev a new Cadillac in 1972 as a sign of goodwill - even though they were Communists and had missles pointing at us at the time.
In the 1980's Ronald Reagan and his crew sold arms to Iran (anyone remember Iran-Contra??)
Could you even IMAGINE if Barack Obama did that today? One handshake of diplomacy with Chavez and the right is calling him Hitler!!
And, BTW, who let Cheney out of his dark, evil crypt? Will he go straight from there to prison??

This is an easy one here folks. This is the cover of the Washingtonian, the color of the shorts are Burgundy. There is only one color in DC and it is to apeal to the masses to sell this publication. Hail to the Redskins!!!

Its not His Blackness that worries me...Its his liberalness that scares me.
Wish we could hear from Martin L. King (which was a Republican)

At this point in time...The United States is on a No turn around path....I see President Obama becoming Our Dictator within 8 years, and if by luck that doesnt happen. The damage will be done.

I love how it's you democrats here screaming the racist comments the loudest and cursing and showing your ignorance. Makes me truly happy to NOT be one of you anymore! It's funny, the repubs and independents just want the man to do the job he was elected to do, not run around apologizing on America's behalf for everything, and so far, he's done nothing but spend America straight to the toilet and give his arms cramps for patting his own back so much.
