New Obama Family Portrait Revealed!

Check out the new official portrait of the First Family!

President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their two daughter, Malia and Sasha, posed for photographer Pete Souza in the Oval Office on Sunday (December 11) after the family returned to the White House from church.

The family’s previous portrait was taken in 2009 inside the Green Room by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Michelle and the girls will be jetting to Hawaii this Friday for a 17-day vacation. President Obama will join them after the standoff over a spending bill and payroll tax cut proposal is resolved, the Washington Post reports.

    PS. Those kids will be tall. The oldest daughter,Malia is nearly the same height as Obama already.

    It’s not like Cdn PM Stephen Harper who wore the SAME outfit in his Christmas portrait 2 years in a row.

    BYE Bye OBAMA THE MARXIST TWIT in November 2012

  • cierra

    they look so adorable and happy! so happy this is our first family. and solecito, you have your opinions, but screw you. he has to undo what george bush did to us.

  • Truth

    Now we have to get someone in to undo what OBama did to us.

  • marq

    His Marxism is the least of our worries. Those genocidal tendencies should be scaring the bejesus out of everyone.

  • theresa

    to marq

    no idiotic troll! that honor belongs to GW; the man who had the WO before President Obama.

  • marq

    @theresa: Absolutely, GW had that bent too. So does Perry. But I spotted the NDAA ruse for what it was and called it (elsewhere) as a ruse. Obama planned to sign NDAA all along. Carl Levin admitted the secret arrest and indefinite detention of even American citizens, (disappearing people), was Obama’s language in the bill, in the first place. When Levin and his colleagues tried to remove it, the White House insisted it remain.

    It would do well to spot that Obama uses feints and ruses. He, like Bush, shows classic signs of the psychopath. It would do all well to remember Jean Rostand’s insightful words:

    “Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god.”

  • JT

    Can I get this picture printed on my toilet paper?

  • Anne

    To some of the above posters, I get that people in the public eye – especially the president of any country – will have their critics and nonsupporters, but really, that’s the the best representation of your “intelligence”? Your best counter-argument? To call a family “monkeys” and another individual “mountain bear”?

  • MrJeffery

    LOVE. 4 more years please.

  • nkenk

    @Anne: they’re just disgusting racist idiots with no better insults.

  • Dee

    Absolutely gorgeous! No matter your political views, you must admit that they are a stunning family!

    And for you Obama haters, I cannot imagine what it must be like to live your lives day to day with so much hate in your hearts. It must suck to be you!

    Wow…yet another vacation…

  • Angel

    S., Congress and the Supreme Court (the other two branches of government) are also starting their holiday break on Friday. Presidents take vacations. Someone I know got to take five weeks of vacation a year. Find something else to obsess about.

  • deby

    love obama

  • pay attention!

    You people can say how cute and beautiful this family is all day long but the truth is, that man is now responsible for DESTROYING the BILL OF RIGHTS. NDAA and SOPA (if it passes) will effectively gut some of our most important liberties — habeas corpus, due process, right to trial by jury, right to a speedy trial, and that thing known as THE FIRST AMENDMENT. Up until Obama saved himself over the American people with this NDAA bill, I was a big supporter of his. It’s disgusting what this government is turning into and the fact that people sit by and don’t care is incredibly disturbing to me.

    WAKE UP!!!

  • GHU

    When 80 percent feels the Country is on the wrong track we are in big trouble and it may not be completely reversible.
    Using the Media to keep us divided and angry will backfire.

  • Eva

    Wow funny seeing this today. Michelle and the girls are leaving for Hawaii. Obviously they don’t care that it will cost the taxpayers so much more for them not to wait for Mr. Obama. I guess they just don’t care.

  • kris


    Americans are so blind and naive…this guy is even worse than Bush. Check your facts guys.
