My Family Reunion Song

'Tis the season to be Family,
fah-la-la-la-laa, la-la-la-laa.
Drive we now across the country,
fah-la-la-la-laa, la-la-la-laa.
Love we now our distant cousins,
fah-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-laa;
Spending time with our loved ones,
fah-la-la-la-laa, la-laa-la-laaa!

Eating food and blowing diets,
fah-la-la-la-laa, la-la-la-laa,
Taking pictures, posed and random,
fah-la-la-la-laa, la-la-la-laa,
Holding babes and kissing Grandma,
fah-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-laa;
Getting home to peace and quiet,
fah-la-la-la-laa, la-laaa, la-laaaaaa!!!

Look at what?!

There were two pix from President Obama's recent trip, and one seemed to be really smarmy, with him ogling a young lady's "Stimulus Package". After this brouhaha erupted, suddenly a new picture came out of him when he left the summit. To the right is the first picture. Obviously Nicholas Sarkozy is ogling, but then, he's a Frenchman, so we can understand his behavior. A quick review of the actual footage that this was taken from clears things up nicely, if one cares to get at the truth.

After this turned into an international joke, the person to whom it mattered most seemed to have directed or orchestrated another picture, another photo op, if you will. That person was the First lady, Michelle Obama. When was the last time you saw the first couple enter Air Force One next to each other? Most often, they are in single file, with one going in first, then the other, waves and smiles. But this time, they had to put this incident, shall we say, behind them? They had to let the world know where the President's heart, and hand in this case, was. Look at this next picture, and see for yourself.
This should clear things up. I doubt Obama is a player. This is one area where he gets it right: he is a family man, and seems to be a faithful father and husband. Kudos to him and to his wife, who protected their family image.
