    robert, this mess in the economy started with the ACORNs strong arming the banks to give loans to people who could not afford to pay the loans back....Obama was involved in that mess long before Bush became President....that was the start and from there Fannie and Freddie sold derivatives which Barnie Frank was involved with.

    BUT, OBAMA needs a scape goat.....that COWARD!

    Can someone please BLOCK GQALEX from cursing like a drunken sailer

    @Vitalissue - Nice pseudonym. Unless you think "idiot" or "stupid" equates to cursing, more than you think threatening someone with "curtains" equates to a threat, please press on.

    This post has nothing to do with the President (or the issues)...it has to do with your threat against another poster (as always).

    Jay, I suggest you look at QFFlex other post....the little girle thinks I should drop dead from a heart attack. So don't be so quick to judge like your "stupidly" Dear Leader

    I am so glad they started including the exif data with the photos. This is a great example of what shallow depth of field does best.

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw this pic.
    Wonder if he looked....

    To save the rest of you from scrolling way back up he said
    "He put his feet up on the Resolute desk! "

    The president has a very fine way of "carrying himself".

    In Dutch we use the expression "Hij bewoont zijn lichaam": He inhabits his body.

    A grace, that you are there, mr Sousa, to put down these treasure moments in the history of the US, in the biography of Barack Obama.
    (I found it interesting to know it was mr. Netanyahou on the line).

    Shouldn't someone post the Obama/Joker picture here?
    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
