    That baby would have been wiggling out of Rusty’s arm. PBO has a way with kids. I will ask Souza that when he does his book, to include a whole segment on PBO and kids. Hehehe.

    He probably used to soothe Sasha and Malia just like that. πŸ™‚ Since we talking about babies, the Obamas have been around alot of babies this month, I wonder do they want another baby. Nah.

      Yes you’re unemployed Mr. Romney, but you are also a rich bum, millions, with mansion to live in, and you’re unemployed because you want to be.

    The really touching thing in this picture is that this President isn’t afraid of crying babies!

    Look at our FLOTUS’s face – she’s so proud of her (and our) guy while he works his magic!!

    Aww look at FLOTUS. It’s probably bringing back those memories of when Malia and Sasha were infants. PBO has a way with little children.

    Everyone seems overjoyed to see the President soothing his magic with the adorable baby:-)
    Heartwarming, he knows he’s comfort in PBO arms.

    Bless! I’m sure everyone is grinning coz the baby stopped crying as soon as POTUS held her. There is a look of disbelief on FLOTUS’ face or is it awe? I’m thinking she was holding the baby and she was still crying and then POTUS stepped in and she stopped at once. lol. Hope there is a video of this.

    I just the videon of why the baby crying on West Wing Week. It was something to see how she stopped crying after the President took her from the First Lady, that is why everyone is smiling and me too (lol).

    BEST SUGGESTED aCAPTION FOR THIS PICTURE (seen elsewhere):

    OBAMA:
    ” I know all about crying babies. I’ve got a Congress full of ’em””

    Just so there’s no misunderstanding:
    I am a HUGE Obama fan and supprter
    and that last comment was meant
    in the spirit of gentle good fun. πŸ™‚
