    Beautiful capture. I love the mother's expression, and the confidant stance of her child is priceless.

    It looks like the FAKER is back in full force. It looks like she has not learned her lesson. She must be so stupid that she is a SLOW LEARNER. It must be due to her senior citizen status.

    I am back to clean up this place. I am back to clean the FILTH, the FECES and the PUTRID words of these neocons and TEABAGGER TROLLS who have absolutely no shame in polluting and contaminating this White House Photostream.

    It is time to permanently destroy these pests!
    Whoring & Trolling

    President Obama is the greatest! Thank you for the wonderful job you are doing, Mr. President!

    and seriously folks, we all hate unalienable rights so just ignore him. with no engagement he'll just be talking to himself. it's easy to zip past him to read comments about the great pics which I do enjoy

    A lovely shot of the families you've met during your time in office. Each of those meetings are important. We admire your consideration for the simple families. Bless you, Mr. President.
