BREAKING: We Missed a Picture of Obama Being Adorable with a Cute Kid

This Photo of President Obama Pretending to Be Caught in Spider-Man’s Web is Reason Enough to Name Him ‘Person of the Year’

Earlier today, Time named President Obama "Person of the Year" — again — sparking a debate over the decision's merits.

However, included in the magazine's explanation of its choice was a line to a LightBox page featuring photos of the president snapped by official White House photographer Pete Souza — one of which does a better job of cementing the correctness of Time's selection than any 10,000-word profile can.

"President Barack Obama pretends to be caught in Spider-Man's web as he greets the son of a White House staffer in the Outer Oval Office, Oct. 26, 2012."

Is it too early to talk about a third term?

Never too early to talk about a third term :)

Sorry, bb, unconstitutional. Two term hard limit. Do not pass the 22nd Amendment, do not collect another four years.

That is an adorable picture though. I bet that made the kid's year.

Can I say how weird it is that costume makers pad out Spider-Man outfits like he's built like Captain America? I mean, it's Peter Parker, you know, short, kind of skinny, nerdy dude. He's not exactly Muscles McMuscley.

Can we talk about how awesome it is that a White House staffer let their kid meet the president while wearing a Spiderman costume?

When I saw this going around FB I thought this was one of those impersonator photos from that photobook collection that came out a while back, but I'm happy it's real :D

I have to admit my first thought was "How do all these children keep getting into the White House? Where is security?"
sunoftheskye 21st-Dec-2012 03:51 pm (UTC)
no but seriously. can someone explain who that child is?

the son of a White House staffer in the Outer Oval Office, Oct. 26

It's a short article.

Haha I noticed the Post It note on the monitor and was totally like IT'S LIKE A REGULAR OFFICE! You just imagine these places to be more...restricted or something.

I agree that that sculpture looks a bit like some kind of Resident Evil mutant.
ljtaylor 20th-Dec-2012 12:17 pm (UTC)
Can we have your president as our prime minister when his second term is up pleeeease?
shortsweetcynic 20th-Dec-2012 01:59 pm (UTC)

I love your President. Can we borrow him? Or perhaps you'd consider a 'cultural exchange'?

You'd be getting this plonker ... so I'm guessing the answer will be a resounding .. Nope.

Oh man if we could swap Cameron for Obama I would be SO HAPPY.
redstar826 20th-Dec-2012 03:07 pm (UTC)
I really enjoy pictures of the Obamas interacting with children. They both seem to be very natural around kids, which makes for some really adorable images
tinylegacies 20th-Dec-2012 08:00 pm (UTC)
this needs the "when will your faves ever" tag

because seriously, can you imagine Mittens doing something like this?
shhh_its_s3cr3t 20th-Dec-2012 11:15 pm (UTC)
Awwwww <3
moonbladem 21st-Dec-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
That is so cute! Excuse me... I think I feel the giggles coming on.
dustbunny105 21st-Dec-2012 07:30 am (UTC)
First thought: D'aww, I love the Obama's with kids. Both of them seem to genuinely enjoy interaction with bitties.

Second thought: I wish I was any good at all with photo-editing because I am inexplicably tickled by the mental image of Obama's reflection being shopped out of the mirror.
