Default Blogger claims Obama is wearing a shoulder holster

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_c3WtQv44wG...Abu-Mazen2.jpg

The author of the blog where I found this pic claims he can see a left-hand draw shoulder holster under Obama's coat. My eyes aren't perfect, but I can't see anything telling of any holster.

Any other, better eyes see anything?

I've never actually paid attention to if the president is left handed or not. The wrist watch on the left hand confuses me because right handed people wear their watches on the left most of the time

I'm right-handed and I always wore watches on my right arm, so the watch thing isn't universal.

Obama is actually left handed, but even so I see nothing there that indicates a holster, just the inside of his jacket bunching up due to how he is sitting.

Yeah, that's all I'm seeing, too.

Did the guy give any reasons WHY the President, one of the most well guarded men in the world, would need to carry a weapon?

It's the classic seeing something that isn't there mindset. You want to see something there so badly unconsciously that you consciously try to point it out.

I wonder can the president actually carry a gun with him if he wanted to?

I think I read that Teddy Roosevelt routinely carried while president. I don't know if that was only during his free time or to official functions though.

I'm sure if a president really insisted, he probably can carry if he wanted to. The president wasn't allowed to carry a cell phone until Obama insisted.

Even if he could, I seriously doubt that Obama would even consider carrying.

You would think back in the old days, the President that is pro gun would be packing.
