    Beautiful beautiful picture………

  • josh

    i really like your president, he’s young ,tall ,elegant, courageousambitious…all the contrary of our president nicolas sarkozy…

  • ok

    Obama no thanks, I’ll be glad when this loser is gone

  • Carol

    So sweet, a really beautiful portrait!

  • lol

    with his approval rating at an all time low, i guess its time for a photo op, sad

  • one term man


    A one term president and I think he’s happy about that. Was never ready for this job and it sure shows. glad he’s taking all these vacations while ‘rome burns’ so to say. he was supposed to ‘turn water into wine’ to hear all the voters who wanted ‘change’. We got change alright.

  • cris

    a solid example of why his approval ratings continuously plummets to further record lows.

  • Jojo

    Yes @5 @6 @7 – that probably are the same sad person – because you S T U P I D americans pefer a murderer like Bush was, and like McCain would be, right?
    His approval might be low there, in this country of killers, but be aware that the image of US around the world happen to be a lot better since he assumed the presidency.

    But you probably don’t care, since you only care with things that happen where your eyes can see…

  • Erika

    Good that he has time for his family!

  • AVA

    How delusional is this guy, “after 2 years of governing my polices might bring America into double dip recession so let me release my 10th vacation this summer photo ops,” Obama a real man of the people we have here, wonder if Michelle likes the Spanish vacation, Maine vacation or this Marta Vineyard one best, all in 2 months, wonder if their vacationed out.

    What has he done besides put trillions of dollar of debt on the stupid generation that voted for him, 18 to 35, and pass a health care law that forces that generation to buy healthcare Insurance, because they need the young and healthy to in the system to pay for the insured who are mostly Hispanics.

    Maybe next time, people won’t vote who celebrities think should be President, this is what you get, 1.5 trillion dollar deficit two years running, and 10% unemployment, foreclose and bankruptcies at 60 year high, youth unemployment at a all time high and 5 trillion added to a national debt in 2 years the was 9.5 trillion, which took 250 years to accumulate.

  • tom

    I can’t stand these people, 2 parasites who have no idea how to govern, just wanted the celebrity and perks that come with the job.

  • tom

    I am not a big fan of Obama’s and he really has not accomplish much of anything at all. But people sort of forget, he did not get us in to the mess. Bush took more vacation time, started 2 pointless wars, really did nothing for the economy, could barley speak in public without embarrassing himself and his country. He also was never ready for the job. For that matter no one really is ready for the job.

  • Maggie

    Yeah, Bush hatred is ridiculous at this point. His economy was strong until post 2006 when the Democrats were majority leaders in the Senate. His taxcuts allowed for economic growth, and the recession, conveniently, began in the midst of an election year where the Democrats were making a strong push for presidency. It’s been two years, and Obama seemed to have all the answers. We were barely into this recession when Obama became president, and instead of focusing on it, and jobs, he deciided to spend more of our grandchildrens money and push through healthcare, which makes us all more beholden to the gov’t, and will have our doctors offices resembling the local DMV. He’s the biggest joke that has ever stepped foot in the White House, and these pictures just remind me of it. He’s smiling and happy with his children while he continues to spend spend spend MY money.

  • annie

    She’s a chubby kid.

  • MlleF


    I was about to say exactly the same thing !

    But I don’t consider Sarkozy as a president, just an upstart (arriviste).

    So sad that people are enough stupid to believe anything…this is our Bush….

  • Ladyb

    Sasha looks like her dad, and hr older sister looks like her mom.

  • really?


    You apparently were not the first ones in the country under Bush to start losing the their jobs. And it started with Bush. Go back and do some research. Truth be told, they all have a part in it…globally too. one term, one man cannot fix it, he didn’t break it himself.

  • ari

    the rest of the world loves Obama, and wonders why Americans are so utterly stupid

  • Alina

    We shouldn’t honestly keep a president in office because it makes other countries like us how high school oh everyone likes my hair this way i should keep it this way cuz now everyone likes me! Stupid logic and how dumb are you to think we care if other countries like us America became a country without anyone helping us or believing in us and if we go back to the original foundation of America with out the government putting their noses in everything we can be strong again!

  • haller

    since he’s been in office, we’ve been accepted into other people’s countries without hostility. we were broke during bush’s admin who wasn’t honest with us. obama has allowed the american people transparency of government and shows us the mistakes that have been made.
    we have to start looking at this country as a business. we are going through restructuring right now. dead weight of old non-functional workers will be cut& young energy will be brought in to revive/ repair the damage that has been done. it will take time so be patient. took 10yrs to get here, can’t expect things to sorted in 20months.

  • laverdadduele

    “The Presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”

    That quote from Joe Biden in 2008 is extremely pertinent today. Barack Obama clearly is not qualified to be President of the United States. He has bumbled the response to the BP Oil spill, the War on Terror, health care, our relations with our allies and the illegal immigration debate. Barack Obama is a failure as a leader and is slowly eroding the greatness that is America.

  • clay

    I like Michelle with her hair either parted on the side or with bangs. It makes her look prettier and more feminine. When she pulls her hair back she looks, uh …

    Sorry Michelle.

  • missy

    Can’t wait until this POS is gone. gone, gone, gone just a bad, bad dream. Of course, the teens today don’t realize what Obama has done to them. the teenagers of today and their children are NOW in debt to the Chinese for 3 TRILLION DOLLARS. Better love mom and dad cause you kids gonna be living with them for a LONG TIME. TRY to get a JOB, YOU CAN’T. You been punked and YOU don’t even know it YET but GRANDMA knows it! God Bless the TEA PARTY, they are fighting for you, your just not old enough to figure it out yet.

  • waxo

    People only get a very little increase on Social security every year but Obama took that away too. How could he treat old people like that? He sure makes people who voted for him regret including the blacks. And the Obamas still act like people still like them…

  • waxo

    “The rest of the world loves Obama” because despite the problems at home, US is still quick to help other countries.

  • €€€

    @Missy who ever let you out of that psychiatric facility should receive the strongest punch kown to men (no kidding)

  • Maggie

    The rest of the world loves Obama because he has apologized for the United States being the truly great nation that it is, effectively making us seem weaker int he eyes of our enemies, and spitting on the legacy of the past. He is anti-American. OF COURSE the rest of the world loves him, they are anti-American too!

  • missy


    go drink some more kool-aid!

  • DarkEmpress

    I am not an America basher, but seriously so many people are ignorant in your country. You do not have to agree with the president’s policies, but to spin him having a bbq with his family into laziness and slacking in a time of crisis is ridiculous. I suppose he should stop sleeping, eating and bathing to combat the economic crisis. What are you complaining people doing to help your country.]

    Prior to Obama, were you in debt? Did you have any savings? Did you have a responsible mortgage that you could afford, where you were paying down the principle not just the interest? Are you a healthy weight? Do you eat properly and exercise regularly. Where you doing anything to help the troops or veterans? Were you making charitable donations to help the people in crisis in your country? If you were not living up to all of these things you have no right to complain. YOU are the problem with America. All the problems your country has starts with your greed, bad health and lack of social responsibility.

  • Maggie

    Yeah, no doubt the lazy, fat, welfare loving people of our country are the biggest problem we have….BUT Obama want’s to enable them further, extend their benefits, and tax the heck out of the hardworking citizens of this country until we are all on our knees BEGGING for gov’t benefits.

  • rhonda

    Fatass Michelle and her fat kid are the “poster people” for healthy living. Man, they are living in Obama fantasyland.

  • chefdijour

    Here we go talking about how fat Michelle and her kids are unbelievable the most important thing to talk about Oh I forgot the Obamas is at fault for the Housing Crisis, Bank problems and the WAR yes he started that war how much money are we spending for the war Billions but nobody’s talking about that I know me me me me my kids you know the most important thing in the world Oh just waiting for you to DIE and cash in your Insurance Policy when the US goes broke you all will be dead. Now Michelle suppose to be the poster people for you & your kids I bet all the people on here talking about how fat someone is how fat are you how healty do you eat worry about you and your kid weight. the must self center people I have ever heard of all about money money money.

  • Iffy Miffy

    @Alina: Hate to break it to you but the French helped you against the Brits during your Independence War. France started helping you out in 1776 with supplies and weapons, which in turn caused them to go to war with the Brits in 1778. Benjamin Franklin negotiated the treaty between the US and France in that year. Oh and Spain and the Dutch helped you out as well, also participating on the side of the French in that war. Sure, they had their interests but they did help you. The Dutch signed a friendship and trade treaty with you in 1782. They were second to recognize you as a country, after France.
    I can’t believe you don’t even know your own history so why should anyone be surprised if you don’t know a thing about the rest of the world?

    You apparently were not the first ones in the country under Bush to start losing the their jobs. And it started with Bush. Go back and do some research. Truth be told, they all have a part in it…globally too. one term, one man cannot fix it, he didn’t break it himself.
    I don’t need to read some biased opinion journal from the UK, I have facts on my side, And really, when did democrats including Obama take over both the Senate and the House, in 2006, hopefully you know that it’s congress that makes the laws and regulations, and holds the nations purse strings.

    When Bush came into office the economy was in recession , dot com bubble burst that lost 7 trillion dollars of wealth and 911, all in the first 9 months, and even though more jobs were lost in his first year, the unemployment numbers never went over 6.5%…. why because he and his team worked with a republican congress and actually knew how to CREATE JOBS all without a TRILLION dollar SPENDING BILL.

    All democrats have done since taking over congress in 2006′ is spend , spend spend, and get favors done for their special interest groups like trial lawyers and the unions…. both toxic to the economy and jobs….. read what small business, large corporations have been saying for the last year, majority hate Obama and think he’s bad for the country.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but not to their own facts.

    Obama came into office, with unemployment at 7.2%, and for 2/3 of his governing all with super majority of democrats in Congress, who didn’t need one republican vote to pass whatever they wanted, example Obamacare and now unemployment is at 9.6%

    The end of 2008 the deficit was 450 million , since Obama been President, 2009, 1.4 trillion
    2010 1.5 trillion

    Foreclosure and bankruptcies at a 60 year high, even though Obama took 200 billion of TARP money to address mortgages and bankruptcies, seems their not helping, wonder were the money went or better yet who.

    Youth unemployment 18 to 35 has not been this high since 1948.

    After spending 5 trillion dollars of money America doesn’t have and has to borrow, the country is worse off on every metric since Obama been president

    And all I’ve mentioned is the economy, jobs and spending, all bad but he’s losing the Afghanistan war, fired the best General we had, because he said he a Rolling Stone article that Obama is a joke and his administration are jokes. Obama tripled the troops in Afghanistan from 25, 000 at the end of Bush to over 100, 000 with more troops dying a month now then in 06′ in Iraq, but you don’t hear a peep from OUR corrupt national media.

    And what’s happened to post race relations, everyone who criticizes democrats and Obama are racists, bigot, don’t want a Muslin Victory Mosque near the grave site of 3000 Americans who died by the hands of Islamic terrorists, then your a bigot. Think Obama’s is bad for the country, then your a racist

    That’s all the liberal media and democrats can do, democrats have been in control for 4 YEARS and America is much, much worse off so all they can resort too is name calling to stop the criticism and blame Bush Bush Bush, 4 years later they still won;t take responsibility, so why keep them in power.

  • Roxs

    Although the picture looks harmless – I also think it looks a little creepy too. It almost looks like ‘grooming’ tactics of a father. I hope her parents are teaching her not to lay in the lap of all older men – that would be a shame.

  • jen

    Hope he’s a better father than he is a president. Doubt it! For me he lacks moral character. Think about it folks, he got one shot at fame from Bill and Hillary by delivering Bill’s keynote speech and then stepped over Hillary to take the presidency. Why would anyone vote for a person without any sense of moral conscience? I’m as angry at the stupid American voters as I am disgusted with him. And don’t even get me started on Oprah.

  • WMarie

    I don’t want to seem rude, but worry about your own country and how it’s run. We have to deal directly with President Obama, his decisions, and his actions, not you. If you don’t live here, then you don’t know what really goes on here and you couldn’t possibly understand our country. You think you know us. Until you live here, you will not. You call us killers, but you do realize that most Americans disagree with the wars in the Middle Eas, don’t you? But our citizens do not get to decide when our soldiers come home. I think most of us would love if they all came home tomorrow. You say that Bush was the murderer. Well if we look at this from a neutral stance, if Obama was REALLY any different, he would have pulled all of our soldiers out of the Middle East. But he hasn’t has he? He pulled most of them out of Iraq and sent more of them to Afghanistan, just like he said he was going to do during his campaign…Now why is it that you like Obama more?

  • A trooper

    So true the rest of the world likes and respects Obama. To make it clear, the US dept to China started LONG before Obama´s presidency. The rest of the world new about it. Maybe things are more in the open now with Obama as president so it is new to some US citizens. Obama has to deal with the mess from years back and therefore has to take some unpopular decisions. Some people living in the US don´t seem to get that the rest of the world is bigger than the US and perhaps US schools need to look into their history teaching with some criticism?Many great people living in the US but some are really out of touch with the rest of the world which btw is not a state in the US ;)

  • ms bar jolie gaga

    I am a proud American who supports her President 100%. Obama I watched as he was targeted and criticized since day 1. First week in office and the attacks began and never stopped. You see, people on the right, are still shaken and shocked that he became president. They thought their divisive and Palinesque hate rallies would deter people from voting for Obama. They were shocked when he became President and have not gotten over it. Obama is used to being the underdog. He has always been underestimated and he always comes through. Beware folks. This man is more complex, courageous and brilliant than you give him credit for. He is working really hard at undoing years of bad economic choises. He knew this was the task at hand and he is willing to be the fall guy. He is wonderful and I support him 100%. There is nothing he will do that will make the right like him. Nothing. They made a decision to hate him for he shattered everything they thought they knew about America. They are like children whose parents told them all you have to do is be pretty in life and you will get ahead then they become adults and find out the nerdy kid they picked on is CEO of the company where they work. They can’t stand it. Barack: we love you!

    Only stupid American people would not appreciate a good president they have in Obama.

    I still don’t understand how could americans elect him.I know nothing about him and I’m not gonna say anything bad in his adress.But that’s kinda strange the President of The United States is black. But may be he is smart.I don’t know….

  • slovene

    why don’t you americans get it: 2 pointless wars that were started by bush and his people caused all the problems that you are facing right now! do you even imagine how much money was spent on that?

    recession and things like that do not happen over night and it all started way before obama even decided to run for president.

    plus whole world is in recession right now, if you people werent so self-centerd you would realize that. we all knew it was coming, economists were warning about recession for more than 3 years now.

    obama is a great man and since he has become president the rest of the world actually tolerates and doesnt hate america, but you people clearly dont care about that because you think you are the centre of the world

  • Michael

    America has had problems for generations, while the list of Presidents have focused power towards the rich 1% of your country.
    Many people forget that the President of ANY country is NOT god, he cannot click his fingers and solve the issues that plague your country and the whole world.
    The USA is not independant, it relies heavily on the good will of other countries to grow, and many countries own a LOT of businesses in the USA. Obama realised that trying to mend bridges with others will benefit his countrymen, but you must think long term.
    After the damage done by the Bush administration to public relations, the USA lost all its credibility and the world had (has) high hopes that a new president might bring a degree of honesty to the USA government.
    Has he made mistakes, of course, all presidents do, but at least he does not consider Nuclear War something to strive for as Bush did.

    The Wars started by Bush was for money and resources, and they devastated the countries they bombed to bits. Obama realised that since the USA (and UK) ruined these countries while exploiting their resources, they had a international responsiblity to try to fix some of the damage before leaving or the international reprecussions would affect the USA for many more generations, similar to Germany after WWII.
    It will take many years to remove armies from these countries responsibly and give them enough of a government to allow these poor people a future. These people did not ask for the USA to kill their fathers, mothers, babies, daughters and brothers, so a certain amount of disruption was inevitable when it happened. If you think the USA has it though, try living in rubble.
