4. There's another thread here (sorry no link)

and pic on Politico and Huffpo with story - she was unhappy with her scores (I believe) at the Olympics last summer, and this candid shot of her reaction was blasted all over the media. She was roundly criticized for it. This has kind of a nice "f-u" subtext from the Prez to those who would criticize a young person who has demonstrated commitment and hard work under extreme pressure at the highest levels!

10. She was performing in the individual round in the vault.

During the team competition, she nailed one of he best ever done. Some regard her as the best women's vaulter. This time when she performed her vault, she landed on her butt at the end.

She still was good enough to win the silver medal. This was her reaction. She wasn'tdissing the medal, she was mad at herself.

19. Agreed, she was mad at herself.

But right after it happened, she proved she's got a great sense of humor and is a good sport when she joined in with the meme created about her reaction that day.

5. She's McKayla Maroney, the 2012 Olympic vault silver medalist

Who evidently was less than entirely pleased with her score in said event.

25. As a parent, that seems like a trying not to cry look.

Stay angry, so I don't cry in front of every one.

7. That's probably the coolest photograph of him yet

And the fact that it's posed and deliberate adds to the 'cool' factor.

12. Being cool is better

He's not an angry man, black or otherwise. That's part of his cool factor. It's what drives the Right nuts.

15. There's "cool" and then there's cool. PO has the natural kind, not affected. Real cool really is

actually much more naturally generous than artificial cool, which has a vicious competitive streak as the bullying in our culture so clearly illustrates.

20. Well said, Patrice.

He does have natural cool.
Not the artificial kind that can slip off like a mask.

24. Romney should be in that picture instead of Obama


Since he came in second place just like Maroney.
