McKayla gets Obama to make the "not impressed" face in the Oval Office.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in McKayla
The times, they are a changing.
Probably Kal Penn's idea.
PS the Obama photo with Mckayla is the best photo i've seen on the internet in a month.
So much meaning in that one photo.
What meaning do you find in that photo?
Obama has a great sense of humor.
The image comes from the White House Flickr account:
"President Barack Obama jokingly mimics U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney's "not impressed" look while greeting members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams in the Oval Office, Nov. 15, 2012. Steve Penny, USA Gymnastics President, and Savannah Vinsant laugh at left. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)"
White House posted it to their Flickr. I saw it on Facebook. McKayla's 16-years-old. She probably doesn't consider it strange that her president is black.
I'm not sure this President is a great one, or even a good one; clearly, he needs to figure out how to work with the other side, and figure out his own internal team's dynamics, but he "gets it." He gets "us." This photo, I think, is a great example of how a cerebral, "professorial-like", introvert can get people on such a fundamental level.
"This is mother-fucking chess, not checkers." He's a chess grandmaster.
Oh and her wikipedia page has already been updated: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McKayla_Maroney
He's a great President. Smart, wise, and a compelling vision for the future.
He arose on the national scene just when we needed him.
