'Thanks for the dog, bro.'
Such fun, back in the day, when you could look at “Barack Obama’s Photostream” on the Flickr. But then, he became President, and suddenly no more fun pictures. Well, rejoice! White House photographer Pete Souza uploaded a whole bunch of great White House Official Pix, and you can look at them, because you OWN them (if you paid taxes).

The top picture here shows Obama and Ted Kennedy walking around the White House, on Tuesday. This is somehow very sweet and a little sad. “Sweet & Sour,” as the Chinese might say, on a Chinese restaurant menu in America.

Come on take a little walk with me Eileen, and tell me who do you love?
And here’s your president, trying to lure Ted Kennedy’s Spanish Water-Torture Dog into a Jakarta Hot Pot.

  1. Hey now! Eating pooch is a Christian thing in Indonesia (according to the truthful source of all knowledge, wiki.) Troo Muslins don’t eat dog. If Barry wanted to be cruel, he would have named Bo, Rica-rica or Guk-Guk.

    Damn cute dog.
    What the hell did I just say? Uh, Michelle Bachmann’s taint.

  2. I love that the flickr page is called “the Official White House Photostream’s photostream”

    Now that’s a flickr login only the government could have come up with.

  3. Of course all the inappropriate partying pics are in the “friends only” account. So me a pic of The president curled around the toilet with an empty box of Natural Light as a hat, sleeping peacefully like a tiny drunk baby.*

    *every picture of me ever on facebook/myspace

  4. [re=302916]Doglessliberal[/re]: Holy moly. I would hit that and I’m not even gay. I love how Carla Bruni looks like she’s reacting to something naughty Michelle said.

  5. [re=302925]Doglessliberal[/re]: That’s beautiful. He adores her. Look at the guy in the back, just leaning against the door, chillin’ and happy. I’ll bet this scene NEVER happened in the previous administration.

  6. [re=302929]hockeymom[/re]: that is the thread through all the pics, just how happy everyone seems. Even in serious situations, there is just a chemistry that comes across, as if, God forbid, everyone trusts each other and is in it together. It is truly refreshing.

  7. If I post any comments to the Pres’ pics, they all will be positive, that’s for sure. Stuff like, “Cute dog!”, “Mrs. Obama sure is a lovely lady!”, or “It’s good to see photographic proof that the President is in his office, working hard to heal the wounds and solve that problems that challenge our great nation.”

    I mean, some guy has posted the comment, “Hey, Barack, got some change?” Well, that imprudent young fellow can expect a visit from the Secret Service within a couple of days, and rightly so!

    But here with my fellow wonktards, it’s safe for me to point out that so many of the pics are of people’s butts, including a really good shot of Michelle’s big mama-mia. And are we paying money to this guy to sit around a play with a football? What if he breaks a vase? Who’s gonna clean up this mess?

  8. [re=302957]President Beeblebrox[/re]: I love how it’s shot through a window from a distance. This is because “President Barack Obama plays with a football in the Oval Office” is part of a series, followed by “President Barack Obama hurriedly cleans up the remains of Thomas Jefferson’s historic inkwell,” “President Barack Obama hides the pieces of Thomas Jefferson’s historic inkwell in James Madison’s historic spittoon,” and “President Barack Obama, after thinking a minute, summons the new puppy and dabs its snout with ink.”

  9. [re=302929]hockeymom[/re]: Okay, I don’t care how freaking adorable all these folks are — I am drawing the line at believing in Santa, so don’t even ask.

  10. Some of the comments people are making about these pictures are just too much. They must think they’ll nail down a cushy White House job if they kiss up enough.

  11. I SEE THERE’S NO FOTOS OF HIS BIRTH CERTIVICATE!1!!!1 OR HIS KENYAN INDONESIAC PASSPORT!!!1 HENGHN! HENGHN! AND WHEREIS THE LABRATORI WHERE HE MAID THE MEXICAN FLUE?

  12. [re=303003]boinggg[/re]: What’s wrong with that? I want to work at the White House now, it looks like fun. All the golfing, basketball, football, eating snacks, playing with a puppy, hanging out with celebrities, seems like the easiest job ever!

  13. [re=302913]Doglessliberal[/re]: Every time I read the name “Reggie Love” I think they’re talking about Susan Sarandon in The Client.

  14. [re=303003]boinggg[/re]: THATS CAUSE NOONE WNTS TO GET TEH MESSICAN FLUE! NOOBAMA MAID IT AND HE HAS TEH SIRUMS OF PROTEKTING AGINST HS MESSICAN FLUES.

  15. [re=303064]Schadenfried[/re]: No, it’s imitating a Tyrannosaurus. When will Obama unleash his army of devilishly trained Raptor dogs? Are we too late to prevent this? Or should we even try? Maybe it’d be kinda cool.

  16. I’m literally viewing the flickr photo stream and laughing and smiling at the interesting White House & Obama pichurz while on hold with unemployment for 25 minutes, trying to reinstate my health insurance that I mysteriously don’t have anymore but need immediately because I’m sick, but at least not with swine flu. With some other mysterious ailment. Anyway, what a truly 2009 moment, isn’t it?

  17. [re=302910]saucemaster[/re]: Rahm was also caught READING a real live NEWSPAPER!!! Will the affronts to the Oval Office never cease???
