Chase said...

daubiere said...

Grant said...

Where's the person that will be paying for all my spending?

There she is!

john said...

East is toward the right.

Scott said...

I guess he has a human side, doesn't he.

Horace said...

No, I think he's hiding his face in shame.

miller said...

It IS a cute picture.

Gabriel Hanna said...

Or maybe he's just entertaining a little kid and we don't have to make nasty comments about THAT.

Quayle said...

OK, that's good stuff. So was letting kids trick-or-treat at the WH.

I've worked with a lot of people that were really nice, and still over their heads in their job.

It looks like The CIC is practicing up for his next 20 minute meeting with General McChrystal six months from now.

Joaquin said...

Quayle - Don't think for one minute that O is over his head. He knows exactly what he's doing.

prairie wind said...

This has worked with children before: "Facing this reality, my administration had two fundamental obligations. The first was to rescue the economy from imminent collapse...Peek-a-boo!"

MadisonMan said...

You can see the photographer in the mirror. I prefer it when the photographer is not visible.

Candle said...

That kid is too young to have beer with the president :(

careen said...

@Grant

Hah. Perfect.

Shanna said...

He's always been good with his own kids.

this is outrageous.

I am furious.

Total Nazi propoganda.

Scott said...

Godwin's Law proven here?

mccullough said...

That will be a pretty cool photograph for that kid to show her own grandkids someday.

Kensington said...

Grandkids!?! She won't be able to afford children once Obama's economic plans come to fruition.

victoria said...

Titus, you buthole, sometimes a picture is just a picture.

Don't read too much in to this picture, people, it just is.

this one is cute but I like this one of Michelle in her leopard costume with Chewbacca. http://www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/4075439686/in/photostream/

I'm pretty sure he's telling the kid that Bush crazy glued his hands to his face.

jeff said...

Titus likes to play Conservative Republican here, or Straw man Conservative Republican. He, nor anyone else is really outraged at this picture or thinks it is Nazi Propaganda. Just go with it.

Obama: "Why can't I just eat my waffle?"

Reporter: "What about Afghanistan?"

Obama: "Can't I just complete the peek-a-boo?"

WV: tampsyp

Shoving a tampon up Obama's syp.

Titus said...

I was kidding Miss Vicky.

Alex said...

So fucking Presidential. Yet when Bush was reading the book to the kids on 9/11 that was somehow worse. You Obama slurpers make me sick.

David said...

Cute.

But irrelevant.

Freeman Hunt said...

Great photo. That will definitely be making appearances in books about Obama.

AST said...

If only he was the host of a children's show instead of President.

jaed said...

I have a possibly silly question.

The little girl is identified in the caption as "the daughter of Director of Advance Emmett Beliveau". What is a "Director of Advance"?

EDH said...

That little girl has a mean set of cankles.

Maybe he's interviewing the next Secretary of State?

Adam said...

He's explaining his policy toward Iran to her, in case she would like to be Sec. of State.

Mr. Smarterthanyou said...

Gee, that wasn't posed. Where are the little girls parents? Oh yeah, hidden from the picture.

I would say he is an empty suit except he is so damn dangerous.

Joan said...

I think "advance work" prepares a site for a candidate or official to come in and meet the people he's supposed to meet, speak in the venue he's supposed to speak in, etc. An advance worker facilitates everything and makes sure everyone and everything is where they're supposed to be. At least, that's my impression. It makes sense for a campaign to have advance workers, but I wasn't aware the White House had them, too -- at least not that they would call them that, as to me the designation seems to apply to campaigns.

Cute pic, but I agree with MadisonMan. I suppose the photographer could have been cropped out of the photo, but that would have messed up the framing effect that the chest of drawers provides.

AllenS said...

Two children. One playing peek-a-boo.

A child gets into Obama's drawers?
A child gets more face-time with Obama than Gen. McCrystal?
Obama indicating what he knows about the effects of Pelousycare?
Obama indicating what he knows about islamofascists?
Obama indicating what he knows about the Fort Hood terrorist?
Obama hiding from a future Fox News correspondent?
