Presidential Watch Sunday: An Unprecedented Look At The Presidency

Presidential Watch Sunday
An Unprecedented Look At The Presidency

"I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past." –Thomas Jefferson (Third President Of The United States from 1801-1809).

Welcome to the eighth installment of Presidential Watch Sunday. I would like to thank the White House and Pete Souza (The Official White House Photographer) for giving us unprecedented access to photos of the United States Presidency.

This first photo is of First Lady Michelle Obama with President Obama on July 4, 2009 on the national mall in Washington D.C., as they enjoy the fireworks.

This next photo was taken on the South Lawn of the White House as the Foo Fighters play an Independence Day concert for United States military families.

Earlier in the day, on the Fourth of July, President Obama is photographed kissing a baby while greeting United States military families.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are seen below greeting American military families at the White House on the 4th of July, 2009.

In this next photo we see U.S. military families enjoying the 4th of July festivities on the White House South Lawn.

This next photo is profound if you think about it. President Barack Obama admires a portrait of former United States President Abraham Lincoln in the Oval Office on June 29, 2009.

In this next photograph taken in the Oval Office on February 2, 2009 we see President Obama relaxing on a sofa with his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha.
