The Backside of Barack Obama

Here are GQ's Ana Marie Cox and the Huffington Post's Eat the Press editor Jason Linkins to explain the politics. Why are we seeing so much of the back of Obama? What indeed was Rahm planning? What is the deal with Bo? Is Joe Biden still alive?

Gratuitously magical. Hold on to these moments, Obama fans.

Ana Marie: I don't know if this is a metaphor for the mood at the White House or what, but Pete Souza sure is taking a lot of pictures of Obama's back.

Jason: Maybe Pete Souza will write a column for Politico about how frustrated he is with Obama withholding access? "How much money is left in your 'The Obama White House has a messaging problem' budget, VandeHei?"

Ana Marie: Seriously that is a lot of pix of Obama's ass. Ass in mom jeans!

Jason: When Sasha fished her golf ball out of the hole, was John Boehner there, sipping on a Slurpee?

Ana Marie: Tanning on top of an overturned car?

Tell you one thing: Our Special Envoy for Middle East Peace does not seem like he's paid very much attention to…no wonder it's been taking awhile!

"And now, folks, a special treat, as Hillary performs her favorite tunes from 'Anything Goes!'"

"Okay! Middle East Peace Process! Everyone synchronize their watches!"

Ana Marie: There's no way to get around a throws like a girl joke here.

Jason: There's also no way of getting around the fact that Bo could start for the Washington Nationals right now.

If this is how Obama looks before every staff meeting, I would be concerned.

Ana Marie: Ol' Joe Biden, telling that same story about how he was almost president. Again.

Jason: I think Rahm is mulling whether he wants to whip out that Hillary-for-Joe switch plan he's keeping behind his back.

Next: Obama's Secret Notes!

I think the term "Mom Jeans" has creeped to mean "Any Jeans a Person over 35 is Wearing"

I agree! Furthermore, I think his ass looks pretty good in those jeans (and I don't usually go for the skinny ones); I try not to ogle the president, but the mom jeans accusation is extenuating.

Yes, what kind of jeans should he (I) be wearing?

That one with Gaspard looks like they're taking a steam.

I cannot even attempt to describe my delight when I realized this was 3 pages long.

Haha, thank you!

With that headline, and then that picture of the large, rounded shape with the set of stairs leading up to it, for a minute I thought I was seeing the president being boarded by a very small man. Luckily, the little scroll-over text clued me in: that's the side of Air Force 1. (And a very cool picture, too. Obama as astronaut!)

This feature always fills me with such childish delight — thank you! Every Pete Souza photo shot through a tree/hole in the wall/half-shuttered window makes me cackle like an overexcited toddler.

Yes, frames forever!

I'm trying to resist a "urinating" joke about photo 2, but I AM NOT THAT STRONG.

This is my favorite thing on all of the interwebs, and it has permanently changed the way I look at all White House photos.

danbo (#8,510)

is it just me or does clooney have his eyes on obama and souza AT THE SAME TIME?!

Looks like he's taking a leak in the second one down

It feels good being the president of the United states. So far his wind of change has done more than change the lives of people all over the world. At least the change and removal of unpopular leaders is something to reckon with. Better still a second term can bring about improvement in economic situations around the world. Perhaps that's the plan.

Nowadays ever where about Obama even he`s back!

Really liked the second picture on the second page :D
"Even after two years, you can work at the White House and STILL get excited about the secret door." Man this really made me fell of my chair. Keep up the good work :)

In case you are caught while in the exact predicament I discovered myself in two years in the past – chasing small business option following organization ability, you then truly should really cease and consider whatever you are doing card

Love their dog.. (picture on front lawn) Michelle Obama talked about their dog "Bo" on the David Letterman show recently and said "He is my son, I have two girls and a boy."

It's kinda new experience that we are able to get a insight of this beautiful White House through Mr. Obama. Indeed, seeing the back of the most powerful person of the USA, kinda pleasure too. I just wonder, whether Breitling Super Avenger watches are liked by him or not. Because, I heard he's also a tech savvy person.

It’s nice to see a high profile figure as an ordinary family guy! I’ll bet Barack will never need flower delivery preston very often.

A brave person life nice photos!!!

Wow, so many photos of Obama's backside, I don't know what to do with myself lol! In all seriousness, though, the one of him and all the middle eastern big wigs synching their watches is pretty funny. You know they probably have to keep their watches timed so they know when to talk, back down, introduce someone etc. Although I never professionally pursued it, I've always had a strong interest in politics. I talk about it on my site a little bit if you want to come and drop a comment.
