Barack Obama Shows Off Playful Side, Just As He’s Named The TIME Person Of The Year

Picture: Barack Obama And Staffer's Kid Dresses As Spiderman

The point of this post is that, in a nutshell, the President Barack Obama is just plain cool. He’s been named as the Time Person of the Year for 2012 which we can all agree on being a pretty awesome thing. But our attention was diverted by this ridiculously adorable photograph that popped up on the POTUS’ twitter account around the time that the announcement was made which was captioned as, “Photo of the day: President Obama gets caught in Spider-Man’s web.” It’s the photo for a lot of days, as far as we’re concerned! The photograph was taken by the White House photographer Pete Souza and shows the President goofing around the W.H, playing with one of the staffer’s kids. The little tyke’s dressed as Spider-man (good choice, kid) who’s pretending to shoot a spider web at Obama. Obama, of course, pretends to be stuck in Spider-kid’s imaginary web. It looks totally spontaneous and we love the President for being this guy. Souza has been responsible for a lot of awesome photographs of Obama — another favorite being of the Prez, tired and smiling, and pulling off his bowtie as the elevator doors of the private residence in the White House are about to close. Here’s a nice colletion of thoseĀ photos, in honor of Obama becoming Person of The Year.
