Barack Obama: May 2009 Archives
President Obama bends over to let the young son of a White House staffer touch his hair, because the child wants to see if the president's hair feels just like his own.
For the first time in our history, an African American child visiting the White House can see that someone with hair (and skin) like his (or hers) can be anything he wants to be when he grows up - even president of the United States of America. It's amazing to see that what an Obama presidency means for African Americans - inclusion, representation, unlimited dreams and long awaited, hard fought for change - is not lost on a child this small.
President Obama picked up a hearty lunch at Five Guys (the one by Nats stadium) Friday afternoon. He ordered a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalepeno peppers and mustard. Dee- lish!
(For those of you who are unfamiliar with Five Guys, just know this one little fact: Give an atheist a bite of a Five Guys burger, and you'll have her on her knees, shoutin' thanks to the Lord and speaking in tongues! They are that good. Seriously.)
Anyway - as you can see in the video, the president is one of those guys who doesn't decide what he wants until he gets to the counter and takes forever to place an order. We like the prez, but that drives us CRAY-ZAY! He's also a chatty fella and seems to enjoy making small talk with the other folks waiting for food.
