McKayla Maroney got lots of attention this past summer at the 2012 Olympic Games, which were held in London, when she made an "unimpressed face" after competing in gymnastics. A photo of the funny face hit the net and people began using the picture to say McKayla wasn't impressed with anything. Well, she and the United StatesOlympic Female Gymnast Team got a chance to visit the White House in Washington D.C. and meet President Barack Obama and in a fun fashion Obama did his best McKayla Maroney "unimpressed" impression. Both posed in that manner poking fun at what became a funny internet sensation at the time.
Michelle Obamadelivered at the DNC Tuesday night. Looking beautiful and speaking eloquently about her love for Barack and at times getting teary eyed as she described the emotion that Barack feels when he reads letters of despair some Americans experience in their lives. Michelle told the excited crowd, "Barack knows the American Dream because he has lived it. She had many in the audience enthroned in her passionate plea to their constituents to remember the vision that Barack set out to do for the Americaan people and do what they can to get fired back up and help him get re-elected
She continued to create a very vivid picture of Barack's policies and said that for him these things are personal and you can't seperate two. Barack watched from the White House along with their two daughters. Michelle went into the convention with the best favorability among all political figures. The Democrats are creating an air that this election is about a choice…two different platforms and its up to you to decide which one is the right one for the direction of the country.
When Clint Eastwood was revealed as the "surprise guest" that would speak at Thursday night's Republican National Convention, it electrified the delegates and the party. When it came time for him to walk out on stage in front of millions tuning in, the crowd was electric and ready to hear him speak, hanging at his every word. Then when he spoke, it became as what some have described as bizarre, most notably mocking President Obama in an invisible chair.
Clint is a Hollywood Legend who endorsed Mitt Romney months ago. Many say that Mitt was upstaged by the "invisible chair" that Clint "debated" with for almost 11 minutes. If you didn't see it, you can watch the video below for yourself. The video sparked an @Invisible Obama handle on Twitter and people began to post Instagram photos of themselves "Eastwooding".
President Obama Gives His Opinion
The night that Clint gave his speech the White House issued their response by tweeting the below photo:
The picture says it all. The picture depicts Obama in the Presidential Chair with the chair saying "The President", along with the line "This seat is taken." Of the incident as a whole, Barack recently told USA Today in an interview after being asked whether he was offended, "if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession." He also gave praise to Eastwood telling USA he was a huge fan of the actor. President Obama certainly has lots more of criticism coming his way!
President Barack Obama covers the July 2012 cover of Essence Magazine. He is looking very handsond and presidential as he discusses his running for re-election in 2012. The President talks about healthcare, improving the economy, and being excited about the next four years. Obama said:
“I’ve always approached my presidency as a long-term proposition…I didn’t run for office just to clean up the mess I inherited. I didn’t run for office just to return to the status quo. Understanding that some of the things I get done, we may not see the benefits from them for ten years. But that’s how change happens…”
The battleground lines are drawn. AT 11:30 EST today, the President called Mitt Romney to congratuale him on securing the Republican nomination for President of the United States. He recieved more than 100 delegates from the Texas primary. An Obama for America spokesperson said in a statement:
"President Obama said that he looked forward to an important and healthy debate about America's future, and wished Governor Romney and his family well throughout the upcoming campaign."
Mitt thanked the President and wished he and his family well, a Romney aide said adding the call was "brief and cordial."
President Obama recognized and honored to veterans during this Memorial Day Weekend on his weekly address. He said he will be with Veterans and their families at this Monday's Memorial Day holiday at the Arlington National Cemetery and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. He says that we should honor those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan by making sure they have healthcare, jobs, and higher education.
President Obama honored the L.A. Galaxy today for their 2011 Major League Soccer Championship win. David Beckham was the center of attention as Barack turned it into a mini-roast of the hot soccer player and model. Barack joked he was "over-the-hill" and half the team could be his kids. He also went on to say "He (David) is tough. It is rare a man can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear."
David and the gang were shown a tour of the White House. Once the celebration oended, David and the team participated in a clinic on the South Lawn that became and question and answer.
This is becoming a tradition for Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide. The guys took a trip to D.C. to visit with the President and received glowing remarks from Obama on winning the BCS Championship. He also gave them praise for the work the coach, players, and staff did in the wake of the 2011 Tuscaloosa tornados.
"Now, obviously this is a team that knows something about adversity." He continued,"It was one year ago next week that an F4 tornado carved a path right through the town of Tuscaloosa. I traveled down there two days later to see the devastation with the mayor and the governor. And I've got to tell you, I'd never seen anything like it."
Barrett Jones, offensive lineman for the Tide, gave the President a Crimson Tide Jersey with his name on it and an Alabama helmet. The Prez shook hands and greeted everyone and "Sweet Home Alabama" was played.
