6. I just love having a President with a fabulous sense of irony and humor

 

He could seriously have a career as a stand-up comedian. Or, his own show even. (although I think I'd rather see him on the USSC one day).

i remember that... am laughing at the shrub's stupidity - because the k-12 public education system in our country is a shameful shrub legacy for students, their families, and hardworking teachers in low income communities.

14. I loved Obama's selfie humor

while I detest selfies, I do expect the current president to keep up with the times and doing it in a humorous way is good enough!
