    Yea that's true. That's why some of us post one liners that don't add to the conversation. :-)

    If he's giving a weather report, then yes. Otherwise, no.

    Who said it really mattered? I was just curious since it looks a little odd to me.

Now, that doesn't automatically mean it's not a green screen - it just means that the background is not a static picture - it could be a moving video shot that is running on the green screen. However, also look at Obama's head, forehead and podium the lighting also changes with the background (there are probably lights facing him as well so the give away is the side and top of his head and shoulders). So I don't think he's in front of a green screen.
    Interesting.... I had no idea what to look for to know if it was a green screen or not.

    Since I could click and drag him out of the way, I'm going to say yes.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
