3. That's a PR opportunity I appreciate. Promoting literacy.
While he didn't have to display Romney's or Rove's books, he did choose 2 good titles for his daughters.

6. Wow a President in a bookstore buying books
I've waited eight years to see that.
The best pic was the one where he was putting Rove and Mitten's books back on the table.

GObama! Very cool!!!

7. That's so COOL!!! And unlike JFK, he apparently carries cash!
(JFK's aides always were carping about having to pick up the tab for their boss who was notorious for never carrying cash).

11. He spoke about the bookstore during his speech today
And how they provide health care for their employees but how it was getting more difficult for them to do so. And about how the new health bill will help them this year by providing tax credits.
