2. He sure is. Makes my daughter happy.
She's a lefty and feels awkward sometimes; now she feels special because the president shares her unique brain wiring. ;)

That cool. I just hope he doesn't call his own self a "mongrel" again like he did over the allergen-free puppy decision :crazy: Please, Barack you split with the Barry Dunham stuff a long time ago, honey.

6. I noticed that yesterday.
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 12:37 PM by notadmblnd
I was explaining to my son, that he probably has more in common with the president than most people. Since they are both bi-racial and was raised by a single mother. When I saw him sign the documents with his left hand, I pointed out that they have that in common too. I blame myself for my sons left handed-ness. I was forced to write left handed after I broke my arm 2x during early childhood. The thing I never understood was the twisting of the hand that most lefties do when they write.

I'm not sure about the birthday though. When is the President's b-day?

7. Six of the past twelve Presidents have been left handed. . .
Truman, Ford, Reagan, George HW Bush, Clinton, and now Obama.

8. I'm a lefty. so is my 3 year old.
my mom told me I was special because I was left handed when I was a kid. Came in handy, as I was the only lefty in my class. only other lefty I knew was my mom. It's weird to see so many lefties these days. It's a rough world for lefties, but it makes us stronger.

15. "Sinister" and "gauche" both relate to left-handedness.

14. I was born a lefty but was switched after an eye operation at age six to correct
crossed eyes caused by delivery. Now I write with my right hand but use my left for other functions. My second born son is a lefty.

16. Just one more reason to like him...
I'm a lefty too. I mean I'm left-handed, as well as in political orientation. So I guess that makes me a double lefty!
