Mr. President

Mr President. Thank you for being the sane rudder that has led us through uncharted water.



There is one picture that I have tried to find. Pete Souza's shot from behind Obama, you see where Malia pulls him forward. It was an awesome photo of his view, his last view of the crowd. Inauguration 2012. I saw it, yet can't find it. Can any of you help me?

One last look.

6. thanks sheshe2

and as he said, he won both of them.

In spite of all the Tea Party racists and bigots who cannot or will not move forward, history IS moving forward. Soon the Tea Party will be an obscure historical footnote, but the first black President will not.

8. Love you, may not have been Souza...man extrodinaire with an eagle eye.

Yet, yes this is what he saw. One last look. Thank you, handmade, I love this President.

The one I am going to ask Souza for... his back was there as he looked out. It was a black silhouette of him, and the crowd like you posted.

10. I also like the one when he won in 2012 and came onto the stage with his family

waving and thanking the crowd in front of him and Sasha reminded him of the crowd behind him wherein he complied and turned around to thank them as well.

12. I feel as privileged to have lived through his Presidency

as a New Deal Democrat must have felt to have lived in the time of FDR.

I'll be sad to see him go...

And hell! We've still got nearly two more years!...

"Mr President. Thank you for being the sane rudder that has led us through uncharted water."

Indeed! Thank you, President Obama for all you've done for us over the years since you were voted into Office. We've been so fortunate to have you fighting against the insanity that is AKA/the US teaparty4hate, and the myriad of other enemies, that give you no credit for anything but, are so quick to jump on with their ignorant cheap shots.

15. They are such a beautiful couple.. glowing from the inside, she~ One thing the President was up

to today.. Our Planet's Environment..with his EO Pen, again!


President Barack Obama signs an Executive Order, titled “Planning for Sustainability in the Next Decade,” which will cut the Federal Government’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 40 percent over the next decade from 2008 levels, in the Oval Office. Behind President Obama are senior advisor Brian Dreese and Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of Energy Kate Brandt

Hmmm, not sure yet I saw hair on fire today....TPP and Obama screwing the environment. It was a wiki leak. They are assured. Your post is impossible to believe, Cha! The haters know best. They are all experts.

Lol~

17. As I said in my previous post thanking President Obama for being there for us and standing

against teabaggers4hate and other enemies who have nothing but cheap pot shots.. they both studiously avoid acknowledging any positive Progress Obama has made.

That would not jive with their agenda.. a beaut from the link today..


President Barack Obama is given a tour of solar panels on the roof of the Department of Energy (DOE). With President Obama (L-R) are DOE HQ Energy Manager Eric Haukdal, DOE Deputy Secretary Liz Sherwood and Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of Energy Kate Brandt

smack! G'night, she~

19. Great gif, sheshe2!

The inauguration was in 2013.
You might adjust your search for a picture by Pete Souza for that year.
I couldn't find it, sorry.

23. Thanks MH...

I have been to Souza's site, fabulous I might add. Somewhere I posted an Op about him. If I remember correctly he bought his first camera for $25 at a pawn shop. Wait, see below.

Here...

I read he has some photos that he has held back, that might be one.

25. You could try posting a request to his official

Twitter account...I can't believe people have official twitter accounts... and link to the .gif

https://twitter.com/petesouza

If you ever find it I'd love to see it.
