So many wonderful photos of President Obama today with that radiant (can a man be that?) and stunning smile.
Oh, and FLOTUS smile is radiant too. Love that teal blue on her. What a classy couple.
I agree Proud. She looks stunning in that color.
I think giving out these awards to people of excellence must be one of the more satisfying duties a president has. To honor people who have accomplished so much must be thrilling.
woohoo thank you Chip for the video
congratulations to all
Yes, I feel like giving awards, and medals, must be the fun part of their job. They look absolutely handsome and beautiful. They are a good looking Couple, and Flotus looks good In all her clothes. I just like looking at them, and you should see me, as I view their pictures and snapshots, I’m smiling and grinning from one ear to the next.
Nice snapshots, and you did a great job In selecting the snapshots to post here, Chips. Now you gotta get credit for something. Yeah Chips, you present well. Hehehe
This is what stirs my heart…the human potential for imagination, connection and expansion of the human spirit. Thank god not every aspect of his job deals with crisis and conflict. He truly seems to relish the opportunity to honor these accompolished individuals.
So true Sue, so true!!! There are those who would begrudge him these simpler, happier moments in a bid to make his time as President miserable and unbearable.
I love, love, President and Mrs Obama!!!
