1. Impeach him!...

That American flag lapel was obviously phot shopped on to the pic, he's got his arms crossed and he's smiling!

I've seen alot of "official" pictures of Presidents and this is the best one I've seen.

2. The word is personable. He's all right there, all of the time. Sorry to say, I bet that creeps some

people out. Avoidant or vulnerable or defensive types probably feel assaulted simply by that trait alone, his full presence in the moment at hand, which this picture captures quite nicely.

There are people, many of the women, who can and will recognize this problem, because they experience it themselves.

5. Fricken' lovely guy

Fits in any setting - I'm sure he would be humble and appreciative and gracious in the most humble home of any of us. Genuine and auuthentic. Smart too. Sometimes feel sorry for him, being Pres of this country....

8. He is so handsome and sweet.

I can't believe he still is intact after all the beatings he gets from all directions. He is an amazingly strong person.

Thankyou, Mr. President, for being you!

smile even more awesome. Great picture.
