      Good-hearted?

      A man never stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.

      all of you leaving these negative about the President about him bending over to let a child touch his head do have anything better to do. I think when it comes to being intelligent President Obama is probably the most intelligent President we've ever going to have. Look where the last moron that was in the whitehouse got us into, and I believe all of the negative posts being left on this photostream are being left by many morons that liked GWB

      Obama is bowing to a Muslim minor who is sieg-heiling at him. Rush's head is about to explode.

      Sometimes, I have a feeling that this president enjoys driving conservative (Fox) crazy

      This picture is powerful, it has a psychological impact that all intelligent individuals will admire respect and embrace. The other morons will try to reduce it to something within the limits of their understanding. Screen Saver for the rest of the year for me.

      former president G. W. Bush would have done the other way round (felt the kid's head to check if it felt like his)

      So endearing.

      The real great minds are able to come down from their hights...

      Smart kid, he had heard that rubbing a black man's head will bring you good luck and he figured if the man was also the president it would double the luck.
