Yes, that’s apparently the venue from which President Obama made that pronouncement.

“President Putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations,” Obama said. “But I don’t think that’s fooling anybody.”

Maybe Angela Merkel was referring to Obama when she said “In another world”?

Awww…how cute.

Must be “take your kid to work day” and TOTUS brought his little one.

Ohh…Jeebus…he didn’t.

Bishop on March 4, 2014 at 1:18 PM

Operation Pffft full speed ahead.

President Kindergarten.

rbj on March 4, 2014 at 1:31 PM

I simply cannot comprehend how this doofus was ever elevated above a slip and fall lawyer that advertises on park benches and bus stops…

PointnClick on March 4, 2014 at 1:32 PM

I recommend shoving this photo down the throat of every idiot who complained about GWB continuing to read a story to an elementary school group on the morning of 9/11, using it to “prove” how much of an idiot they thought he was.

Let the meme wars begin! ;)

Wanderlust on March 4, 2014 at 1:32 PM

The adult is in the room! *snork*

RushBaby on March 4, 2014 at 1:35 PM

OK, but are we sure this is a current photo and not something dredged up out of a harmless past event? I can’t find any older copies of it so I guess it is, but are we sure?

PersonFromPorlock on March 4, 2014 at 1:42 PM

With leadership like that?

We . . . are . . . doomed.

No Truce With Kings on March 4, 2014 at 1:49 PM

I simply do not believe this photo is real, it has to be shopped. I mean… where are the teleprompters???

Ukiah on March 4, 2014 at 1:50 PM

Finally, the appropriate venue for the man-child.

Bitter Clinger on March 4, 2014 at 1:52 PM

Maybe he’s finally learning how to read? That would mean no more teleprompter errors, like Corps Men, or 57 states.

xdwall on March 4, 2014 at 1:56 PM

They used to say “Pull back the curtain” to reveal to reveal truth…

Now a days, we just need to “pull back” the camera…

Washington Fancy on March 4, 2014 at 2:06 PM

I’d be laughing more if it was in front of Styrofoam Greek columns again.

El_Terrible on March 4, 2014 at 2:33 PM

This is everything Bush’s My Pet Goat moment wasn’t, but I know better than to wait for the uproarious laughter of the Left.

steebo77 on March 4, 2014 at 2:41 PM

As the mind reels, Obama smirks. Yes, everything is going according to plan. First we lie and get elected. Then we lie and we castrate America. Look, squirrel!!

chuckh on March 4, 2014 at 2:41 PM

give him a break guys, he had to learn where Crimea was first….

Rogue on March 4, 2014 at 2:49 PM

Just about everyone else in that room is more qualified to deal with our nation’s problems than our current President.

GOPRanknFile on March 4, 2014 at 3:04 PM

“Presidainty” That is my submission for the One-word challenge to describe Obama.

Mord on March 4, 2014 at 3:10 PM

Teacher Teacher I gotta go pee! I’m all wee-wee’d up!

queer way to descend stairs!

Murphy9 on March 4, 2014 at 3:34 PM

Some of us at work are blocked from seeing Twitter pictures etc. Can you post a different version of the image so that the rest of us can see it?

Old Fritz on March 4, 2014 at 3:54 PM

Rogue on March 4, 2014 at 2:49 PM

…but what language to they speak?

KOOLAID2 on March 4, 2014 at 4:04 PM

Is that a Russian bear or pedobear behind his left foot?

BL@KBIRD on March 4, 2014 at 4:05 PM

Please, please tell me he had just finished reading The Pet Goat to the kids.

Grammar Nazi on March 4, 2014 at 4:08 PM

At least progressive is progressing!

The last time he spoke in a classroom, he used a teleprompter.

itsnotaboutme on March 4, 2014 at 4:13 PM

He seems very thrown and concerned by all the nipping at his heels.
You can see how the incessant attacks have just worn him down and eroded his confidence.
Maybe Ted Cruz could show a little merciful humanity and ease up…just a little?

verbaluce on March 4, 2014 at 11:41 AM

Verby aka Juan Bob explains it all

22044 on March 4, 2014 at 4:17 PM

That about sums up his administration…romper room for lefties…..

crosshugger on March 4, 2014 at 4:33 PM

But he wasn’t reading “My Pet Goat,” so it’s all good.

CurtZHP on March 4, 2014 at 4:44 PM

This is embarrassing. I thought the Obama people were masters at imagery.

oldennis on March 4, 2014 at 4:44 PM

O stands for OMG!

W stands for WTF!!!

Sherman1864 on March 4, 2014 at 5:02 PM

They’re laughing at us…

JohnGalt23 on March 4, 2014 at 5:07 PM

Let’s just be glad that he didn’t also quote from “the greatest love” while he was there.

TexasDan on March 4, 2014 at 5:21 PM

(Face Palm)….Please tell me that was photo-shopped. I’m guessing a wider shot would reveal the MSM sychopants sitting at their desks with their #2 pencils at the ready?

ColBubba on March 4, 2014 at 6:29 PM

Obama Takes Tough Stand Against Russia – On A Kid’s Alphabet Carpet

ShainS on March 4, 2014 at 6:34 PM

President Putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations,” Obama said. “But I don’t think that’s fooling anybody.”

Let’s blame the lawyers.

dverplank on March 4, 2014 at 9:47 PM

Heh

Obama gets schooled by Putin.

Again.

MichaelGabriel on March 4, 2014 at 9:52 PM

Obama gets schooled by Putin.

At least Vlad put him in the right classroom.

MichaelGabriel on March 4, 2014 at 9:54 PM

What is that?

Dollayo on March 4, 2014 at 10:39 PM

Looks like the Secret Service “sanitized” the place by picking up Barry’s blocks and toy army men off the carpet before the photog took the shot.

tpitman on March 5, 2014 at 6:05 AM

Finally, the appropriate venue for the man-child.

Bitter Clinger on March 4, 2014 at 1:52 PM

Close, but to be perfect, he should be standing in the corner of the room wearing a nice pointy hat.

VelvetElvis on March 5, 2014 at 7:14 AM

President Kindergarten.

rbj on March 4, 2014 at 1:31 PM

President Twink.

I cannot believe this idiot is unaware of the horrific image he projects (pajama boy with a tan that won’t quit).

He’s doing it on purpose. He literally wants the US to be an international joke.

His presidency is a calculated assault on the dignity of this country. This one-man pride parade wants the US to be an international laughingstock, and he is more than willing to sacrifice his negligible manhood in the process.

thejackal on March 5, 2014 at 9:01 AM

From the Oval Office to the oval rug

PJ Emeritus on March 5, 2014 at 10:03 AM

I wonder if his legacy and foreign policy will be forever associated with the symbology in this photograph?
It’s going to take a LONG time to rectify his cretinous accomplishments.
