59. Well Reagan's kids (Patti and Ron) did part company with Dad on his politics as soon as they

were out of the house. I suspect you're thinking of W.'s kids. I have no doubts he was as lousy a father as he was a President. He'd have driven me to drink if he was my father. He's going to be a lonely guy - I bet Jenna and Barbara barely acknowledge him now.

The proof will be in the pudding....Sasha and Malia will turn out smart and engaged in making this a better country.

48. My wife and I, and our 2 daughters, are about a year or so younger than each of them.

The funny think is that, based on these photos, it looks like their older daughter, might be closer to her mom, and the younger daughter might be closer to her dad (I know, I know ... we love them all equally .. blah blah blah).

For us ... our older daughter gravitates to me (her dad), and our younger daughter gravities more to my wife, he mom (they have the same birthday).

When I look at their daughters, I see little things that are very similar to what I see in my daughters, in terms of maturity.

They are a beautiful family.

All they are missing is an 18 year old son ... which my wife and I also have ... suppose I could photoshop him into those pics.

I remember seeing photos of them rolling across the floor in a drunken stupor. I never had ill feelings for the Bush girls (only for their father) but I can't help comparing them to the President's daughters' behavior and what the difference says about the two different sets of parents.

61. Did you ever see real family pics of W? I never did.

It was always W. by himself. Clearing brush, riding his bike, playing golf, falling off his Segway, getting hammered at the Olympics - rarely Laura, never the kids. I'll bet he was as good at being a father as he was a President. In other words, not very.

77. A beautiful picture of a beautiful family.

The girls are growing up so fast, and Michelle looks lovely as always. Of course, Obama looks great too.

78. Beautiful Family!

They are going to have their hands full with Malia and Sasha. They are both such beautiful young ladies. I read somewhere last week that Malia is as tall as her dad is.

79. Great looking folks!

And Michelle just seems to keep getting better looking if that's even possible. In the more recent photo, she almost looks bewitching in addition to being lovely. She could definitely bewitch me. Looks and brains - what a combination!

94. I've noticed that, too,

not only here but in other pictures as well. She's grown a lot since her dad was elected. She got Mom's genes for height.

Especially the First Lady.

I don't know why that fat bleep Rush Limbaugh keeps insulting her.

What a great portrait.

96. I like the newer photo better.

The new family portrait is simply a superiour photograph. Better lighting and the poses aren't as strained.

98. Nice timing of the release of the picture

The contrast between Newt Gingrich (R-adulterer) and the president's family values.

I found this picture awhile back & saved it. I don't know if it's photoshopped; if it is, who cares -- it's beautiful:

102. I have to think back to the days of JFK, Jackie, Caroline, and John-John ...

... to think of a time when I was anywhere near as impressed by the family living in the White House. Even then, it wasn't as clear to me as the Obamas. Without a doubt, the Obamas leave every other First Family in the dust. To put it more directly, I'd have NO PROBLEM being in the Secret Service and putting my carcass in the line of fire to protect and defend these folks. They're better than we deserve, by far.

Yeah ... I even remember Ike and Truman quite clearly ... and Margaret at the piano. Older than dirt. (sigh)

108. On FoxNews/Fox nation

Yesterday this photo was a topic on FoxNews/Fox nation. It shows that it had more comments than any other topic. But the comments are closed. Want to bet there were nothing but racist negative comments. Even a photo with your kids proves that you are a socialist.
