President Obama likes many things: basketball, chili, his dog, and being president among them. He also seems to really, really like talking on the phone.
The latest and greatest moment of Obama's history with the telephone is this AP photo that started making the rounds on Twitter Thursday evening:
It's from a fundraiser in Orlando the President stopped by during a campaigning blitz over the weekend (and ahead of the storm). This is the face the President makes when he dials a wrong number, apparently. ABC News' Devin Dwyer reports the conversation with something like this:
POTUS at FL phone-bank: "Hi is this Ann? Hi, is this Ann? Oh, I'm sorry, I must have the wrong number." Click.— devindwyer (@devindwyer) October 29, 2012
There's a small treasure trove of "great moments of Obama on the phone" pictures.
This is from 2004, back when he was still an Illinois Senator. He looks so young and innocent here, before Washington got to him. Before it made his hair go grey. Seriously, look at how dark his hair is here. (Not to mention how much more there is.) [via AP]
This is from another campaign fundraiser, and he looks almost identical to how he looks in the new 'wrong number' picture. From what we've seen, it's common for the President to rest his head in his free hand while speaking on the phone. [via AP]
