    Hi — I am just new here, and so glad I found this site!! Love your videos, pictures, comments, etc.

    This video is probably one of the sweetest I have seen — He loves and enjoys everyone just as they all (including myself) love him, hmm?

    Thanks for all you do.

    I loved that moment. Just watching that made me realize how different he is now. He seems more stately now. Even if he is smiling and joking , I sense that he has truly become CIC. I cannot imagine how he is able to deal with so much, and on the side lines, the screaming firebaggers are yelling at him.

      I was thinking that this week, too. He seems like he’s really conquered the Presidency. He’s been through the fire, and now he just IS the President. And a mighty fine one, too – in all senses of the word. I can’t wait to see what he does after he’s done being the President.

    People of all ages gravitate to our President – from babies to seniors and everyone in between.
    Thanks Chip for this great website!

    I like what Theo said “He IS the president” Yes, and I want him to be president for the rest of my life!!! That may be impossible, but I truly cannot imagine anyone else in that office. All the puny Republican wannabes are just like pretenders to the throne…they have no right to be near him!

    Carolyn and Theo67, I concur with both of you. He is the President. I always love seeing this video. He is so natural. We can see the nurturing of his mother, and his grandparents in his actions. I hope and pray also that he will be our President moving forward in 2012 also. I am up there in age, but I pray that I will be able to live to see him re-elected and also to be able to read his books that we all hope he will write for us to read history as he made it. What an exciting time to be alive.

    That’s a right sweet video. So garlic is her secret, beleive it or not I have been talking about starting to use garlic when I cook. I hear it’s good for high blood pressure. The President was right funny when he said if he use the garlic, Michelle might not kiss him. I am such a fan of our President.
