Obama Discovers an Ancient Likeness at the Pyramids

Note: Please upgrade your Flash plug-in to view our enhanced content.

By Garance Franke-Ruta
President Obama explored the Great Pyramids of Giza following his speech in Cairo today -- and discovered a startling likeness in one hieroglyphic symbol of a man's head with protruding ears. Forward to about 40 seconds into the video above to see the president laughing about it with a tour guide and adviser David Axelrod.

Below, the compare and contrast:

The entire English language was precoded to contain messages about today. This includes the precoding of the word "Pyramid" with the Obama sighting of the likeness of his head.

Now that POTUS saw an 'image' that looks like him in those Pryamids , and from that far back in time, that could be my signal to make a trip down the Nile.

Surpisingly, in the converse, should I visit those caves, The Queen of Sheba, an Egyptian, may carry my features, elegant and beautiful. (I will forgive the laughs).

Give it to POTUS, he knows how to create a 'light' moment in all his interactions with people. Sorry for those who have their doubts about him, but he's a part of the human race.

We are truly blessed! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbntdmH7aaE

PEOPLES WORKING PYRAMID ! ......
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA ! ..... may surely also have a deep interest in Anthropology via his Mother STANLEY ANN DUNHAM as he views even his own likeness in the PYRAMIDS ! We can all discover the likeness of Good & Evil upon all HUMANITY in the Pyramids Complexes and Ancient Records ! Impossible - Ispossible and PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA may now even find it more amazing that MICHAEL PATEK also long ago met his good Mother STANLEY ANN DUNHAM in Indonesia and how all of this relates to evidenced factual information upon a HORRID CRIME HISTORY that would astonish Stanley Ann Dunham ! And this great active crime and battle for HUMANS RIGHTS HISTORY was well known to the Ancient Egyptians and confirms itself with all the factors why we have such a deeply wounded World ! There is TRUE HOPE in that President Barack Obama does not carry the Brutal Baggage that burdens so many Politicians and Leaders in the World ! President Barack Obama will now also see the strange connection to the battle for HISTORY MAKING JUSTICE and creation of the fantastic PEOPLES WORKING PYRAMID and all the true evidence is now also in the WHITE HOUSE !

I THINK OUR PRESIDENT DID A MAGNIFICENT JOB OF ATTEMPTING TO GAIN BACK SOME INTERNATIONAL RESPECT.
I JUST HOPE THAT PEOPLE DON'T EXPECT HIM TO SOLVE THE ISRAELI PROBLEM.
REMEMBER THAT THE JEWS ARE GODS CHOSEN PEOPLE AND EVEN GOD COULD NOT GET THEM TO STOP FIGHTING. HE CALLED THEM A STIFF NECK PEOPLE AND ABANDONED THEM FOR 400 YEARS.
MAYBE THAT SHOULD BE OUR NEXT STEP. IF THEY DON'T WANT PEACE, LET'S STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR THEM. WE ALSO NEED TO STOP SUPPORTING THEM. LIKE CHILDREN, AFTER 60 YEARS WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO GIVE THEM ANYTHING.
JUST REMEMBER, IF MOSES COULDN'T DO IT AND GOD COULDN'T DO IT, NEITHER CAN MR. OBAMA. THERE ARE OTHERS WHO NEED US ESPECIALLY IN THIS COUNTRY. MR. OBAMA, WITH THE HELP OF OTHER NATIONS SHOULD LAY OUT THE TASK AND ISREAL CAN JOIN OR NOT JOIN IN A PEACEFUL AND FAIR MIDDLEEAST WITH THE RETURN OF THE PALISTANIAN LAND TO THE BORDERS SET BY THE TREATY SIGNED BY ROOSEVELT, CHURCHILL AND
STALIN.
I'M REALLY TIRED OF THIS FIGHT. THE PALISTINIAN LAND WAS GIVEN TO THE JEWS BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES, ENGLAND AND RUSSIA DID NOT WANT TO TAKE INTO THEIR COUNTRIES THE JEWISH REFUGEES. IF YOU THINK THAT MAKES ISREAL HAPPY WITH US YOU ARE SADLY MISTAKEN. WE ARE INCLUDED IN THEIR "NEVER AGAIN".
WE DID NOT GO TO WW2 TO FREE THE JEWS, WE WENT TO DEFEND ENGLAND AND FRANCE.
THE ISREALIES ARE NOW TREATING US LIKE A HUSBAND WHO GOT CAUGHT HAVING AN AFFAIR AND IS EXPECTED TO PAY THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
IT'S TIME FOR A DIVORCE.

Who's the "racist" here???

YOU (RMcGuire1) are the ONLY poster mentioning either "race" OR any statement about obama not looking "like a real human"....

Sounds to me like YOU'RE the one focusing on race and obama's looks......

Absolutely incredible!

Racists thank you for pointing out how Obama doesn't look like a real human.

Check out the right-wing sites tomorrow and they will be chortling over this.

That's not just any old tour guide. That's Dr.Zahi Hawas, the Egypt's Supreme General of the Council of Antiquities. I met him in Philadelphia when the Tut exhibit opened there. Maybe I should be writing for the WP.

Oh my goodness! It really looks like him!

Should Obama have asserted leadership by calling an end to Israeli occupation within the 1967 borders?
