A Poignant Photo of the American President as a Young Man
"When I see this picture of him as a child seeming to awkwardly, desperately grab the hand of the father who abandoned him I think I feel his pain," says the "Young Fogey" of the photo above — Mark Shea on Obama-haters.
It's hard not to be moved by such a photo personally, but politcally, it might be better that the "leader of the free world" (if that's still what we call the P.O.T.U.S.) not have issues. (To be fair, his opponent in '08 had other issues, perhaps even more dangerous ones, and his three immediate predecessors had theirs as well. Say what you will about Ronald Reagan, I don't think he had issues.)
