Photo of the Year: October

(1) Pete Souza: “The President was playing golf at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, Calif. As he was finishing his round, he began to shake hands with guests waiting for a wedding ceremony about to begin. The bride and groom were waiting inside but when they looked out the window and saw the President, they decided to make their way outside. I made a grab shot as the bride, Stephanie Tobe, and her soon-to-be husband, Brian Tobe, came running to greet the President.”

    These photos just knock me out; yes, No. 6 was the one that made me laugh out loud. I am so happy that our President can relax ( for a few minutes) with a delightful little child – while the congress of the united states is still plotting and planning how to overthrow the kingdom !!

    Heaven forbid that healthcare last another month, or two; what is wrong with those idiots???

    At nearly 80 years of age and paying through the nose for Medicare, Kaiser, and something in-between; I applaud his desire to ease the pains of the masses and to employ everyone that wants a job. Even I have a part-time one that is allowing me to get a manicure/pedicure once a month, as well as a hair-do. Thanks to each of you and to whomever started me receiving “The Obama Diary w/ Photos”. Looking back over the years that I recall, every President since Harry S. Truman, Wow; this is a God-sent man. Yvonne D, Baskerville, looking forward from 1936.

                  Please, not Trump! /disgust/ This Canadian draws the line at that idiot. My rule is if it’s not specifically stated that you can’t do it, then that means you can go ahead with your own interpretation. *smirk-smirking*

                      ‘Vote pirate’? /affronted/ Hey, each time you vote you are just *one* person, and you do make just one vote! Also, too, there are persons with multiple personalities (not admitting I’m one, of course) – what about being fair to them, huh? I’m not admitting to anything, but my lawyer thinks we could make a good case for my *possible* voting habits when the choices are overwhelming. So there! 😀

                      Morning, D-ette! It’s majorly overcast where I am, but life’s good.

      That was one of my favorites, too. I kept thinking Jerry would say “where are these 0-year-olds?”

      And our own little 4+-year-old calls him “Bobama.”

    I voted for #8 – so much world love wrapped up in one picture. I also loved the picture with VP Joe. I am glad he decided against running for President – he can spend his last year as VP getting “stuff” done rather than conversing with the seriously stupid GOP.

    Jerry: How many world leaders do you think are completely out of their minds?
    PBO: A pretty sizable percentage.

    ….
    PBO: .. and of what happens is these guys… I think, the longer they stay in office, the more likely that is to happen.
    Jerry: Of course, they lose it!
    PBO: i mean at a certain point, your feet hurt and you’re having trouble peeing…

    >>> At this point, I knocked over my cup! Bwahahaha! 😂😂😂

    PBO talking about when cursing is really valuable. LOL! 😂

    OMG! I love him so much! ❤️

  21. December 31, 2015 at 12:30 am

    BEST POTUS EVAH!!!!

    When he was talking about the age group he appeals to, I started remembering all those videos of babies saying “BARACKOBAMBAAAAA”!!

    You could see that Seinfeld was genuinely interested in the answers to all his questions, the minutiae of every day life for PBO in the White House! They’re both so funny!
