Obama reflects.

It's hard to escape the impression that he is still trying to propagate a cult of personality.

I miss pictures of Bush's dog, Barnie. Much more inspiring.

The scary part is that few people would quarrel with Chip's choice of "thoughts".

My husband and I are working at separate computers at the same table.

I spent the last half minute with my head tilted upside down, trying to read all those deep thoughts. He gave me a funny look, but I don't think I'm going to bother to explain.

So the difference between endlessly entertaining and occasionally chuckle-worthy is animation?

It continues to amaze me the photos the White House chooses to upload to their Flickr photostream. So many of them have been parody-ready without much more than a bit of cropping and a bit of text added.

The only thing that equals the collective narcissism of the Obama Administration, is their utter lack of self awareness.

(luckily for me, as I'll have material for my LOL Obama's at least until 1/21/13)

Thank God for having a laptop!

Hopefully he keeps his fingers pinching his lips. Every time he opens his mouth more trouble ensues.

Why is it that the thought balloons aren't in mirror image?

Lincoln looks pretty disappointed in that picture.

Excellent work, as usual, Chip.

As I was looking at this picture, I tried to place my hand in the precise way that Obama had his. My conclusion is that there was this little tag of dead skin in the middle of his lip that just had to go. It's winter, chapped lips suck, but we do what we must.

We're in real trouble if Obama doesn't reflect.

"There are LOL Obamas? I do hope you can provide a link."

I guess I need to be more nakedly self-promotional.

Why there aren't more people besides myself doing these on a regular basis I don't understand. Seems like the I Can Haz Cheeseburger empire of blogs ought to have an entire LOL Obama section right between their Failblog and Celeb offerings (seems the right place for this administration).

But, I do my part, daily, both at Flickr, and at my own blog (which consists of the same photos, with a bit of additional commentary, or associated video clips added for extra context).

In the reflection, he looks like he's picking his nose.

Also, when he pushes in his upper lip like that, he looks like Lyndon Johnson to me.

Between those two features, I'm betting Axelrod looked at this one and said "YEAH! GET THIS ONE OUT THERE NOW!"
