Subject: Obama shameful photo op

The pictures on your site were released by the individuals who took them, those pictures were NOT a photo op. The White House did not release any pictures of the trip to Conn. Those families were happy and grateful to have the president there and he by all means should be able to smile with children without being accussed of doing something shameful.
