    One of the things I love about this President is his easy smile. He loves people. I hope he knows how many people love him, too.

    Look at all those wonderful smiles – from the President AND the young men.

    I love to see President Obama at these kind of events; he always seems to really enjoy giving recognition to these winning teams, and they always look so proud to be there with the POTUS.

    Funny, we read and inform each other of the negativity of the MSM, the Congress, wing nuts, and so-called progressives, and we sometimes figuratively tear our hair out, and then we see our President with this big, gorgeous, self-assured smile and demeanor, and then you have to wonder, what’s up with him? 😀

    My goodness, I usually try to be a good girl and just comment on his wonderful inner qualities and abilities as a leader, but PBO appears especially handsome in these photos! Pic #4 is the GQ look; 8 and 9, the smooth, yet macho,cool everyman look; and #16 infectious and as unself-concious in his laughter as a child. There is just something about this man.

    He looked like he was having fun. I am so glad that he has that ability to compartmentalize things so that he can find joy even admidst the many challenges of the job.

      oh hun, trust me, he makes it especially hard to be a good anything 😉 Even if we were canonized, he’d still make us feel the way we do. That man is too fine for his own good. Miche is one lucky woman.

    this was an very occassion with very many happy and handsome people – especially POTUS the CIC!!

    I love the vibrancy of these photos and the almost-edible background.

    I am also noting that President chose to dress in colours similar to that of the uniform of the trophy-winning Air Force Cadets – so nice all over!

    I thought immediately of my dad when I saw these pictures. How he would have loved to see Air Force win this award! He longed for the day when Air Force beat Army and Navy. Sadly he didn’t live at all long enough. The other win he desperately wanted was for the Red Sox to win the World Series, and he didn’t live long enough for that either! But I can say this today: “Here’s to you Daddy!” Enjoy!
