Looking At The Real President Obama!
I’m going to continue posting photos of our President from time to time because the caricature that has been painted of him by the usual suspects is not anything like what is really happening. It is sad how ill-informed and mis-informed the general public is and maybe these photos, if seen by these folks will make them realize he is a very serious, hard-working, intelligent and caring man. And, Pete Souza and the other photographers are amazing. (The captions are from the Flickr feed.)
