      I have to wonder, who snapped this photo? I mean, I know I would have, but...yeah.

      If I were to guess I'd say Pete Souza since the description says "Official White House Photo by Pete Souza " ;)

      How much disability does the President get to collect if he throws his back out? Is it "own occ" or does it not pay if he can flip burgers at McDonalds?

      In any case, our French president (a fairly despicable guy named Sarkozy) would not be caught dead giving a hand to some Joe with moving a couch. So mean that it makes him stupid enough to forget that it could, at least, be some good PR... Obama is on the way to reconcile the US with the rest of the world.

      A man who waits for no one. he knows himself and needs no aires and graces. A real hands on man. Not afraid to get his fingers dirty and boss anyone around, respecting everyone and leading by example.

      Ummm People . . . he's moving a couch. There happened to be a guy with a camera in the room. The guy took a picture. . . . He is moving a couch. If he were levitating it, walking on water to get to it, or otherwise healing people on it, i would be impressed lol but he is moving a couch. Get over it lmao

      The kids and I pitched a tent in here last night to commemorate the homeless since all those foreclosures hit.
