President Obama arrived at Dobbins Air Force base to very little fanfare earlier today. According to the president’s itinerary published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, he will be in town until 2:40 p.m. today.
The president greeted children at the College Heights preschool in Decatur, where the toddlers had no idea who he was. The children knew that he was someone important, so they welcomed him warmly, according to the AJC.
The AJC notes that the school “is currently on winter break, so the children were brought in under special circumstances for the presidential visit.”
In plain English, that means another staged photo op.
The AJC reports that President Obama played games with the children, such as a “game where the children looked through magnifying glasses to identify an object in the middle of their table.
“So this is sort of like I Spy,” the president said. “I remember I Spy.”
Another child, who the AJC admits was probably coached, greeted Obama with “Welcome Mr. President.” And another precious toddler asked him “Are you our teacher?” A third said, “I’ve seen you on TV.”
