Remember when Dumbya was so intellectually curious, just like this president?

2. The sincerity in his face when he embraces the people is awesome.

Reminds me of Clinton a bit in these pics. Bush never looked this comfortable with the public. Nor does Mitt. Either way, I love this guy but he needs to grow a little more balls in his second term.

3. The President does not lack for cajones just give him a Democratic congress.

 

VOTE A STRAIGHT DEMOCRATIC BALLOT get rid of filibustering, obstructionist cartoon Congressmen like McConnell, Ryan, Blunt et. al. You will never see RepubliCON politicians in public settings other than "townhall" staged events. Bush/Cheney can not even leave the country for fear of arrest and trial under Geneva Conventions. Real tough guys ( ).

8. Mittens looks like you are handing him something soiled when he greets the public!

You'd be forgiven for thinking someone was trying to shake his hand with an unclean hand by his usual facial expressions!

6. Oh, that little baby (okay, toddler)! And the Secret Service men... All wearing sunglasses!

I'll bet it's hot down there. Ports are usually hot, with all that concrete and steel.

And just curious... are the longshoremen or port workers in the union down there?
