Hoping to encourage other Americans to participate in "Small Business Saturday" as an alternative to big chain-friendly Black Friday, President Obama today visited an Arlington, Va., bookstore to cross some items off his family's Christmas list.

Accompanied by his daughters Sasha and Malia, the president journeyed across the river to One More Page Books, which the White House described as an "independent, neighborhood bookstore." After consulting his Blackberry for an apparent holiday wish list, he purchased 15 children's books before even browsing the store.

Why would Santa Claus go Christmas shopping???

His commie elves take from the productive and provide all the goodies for the selfish and shiftless who elect him...

...Obama Christmas shopping is like the Easter Bunny shopping at Wal Mart for Easter Baskets.

As a small business owner, the politest thing I can say is FUBO.

Since he won't release his college transcripts I suspect they are for him...

“Dick and Jane At The Seashore” is probably advance literature to this hyper-overated dumass...without Soros pulling his strings he would totally collapse from terminal stupidity...

...the only ones more stupid are the ones who reelected him.

I agree, that was my first thought as well. But during summer vacations and holiday gift shops, they show a list of remarkably simple books that their girls are reading.

I say we do a Small Business Shutdown on inauguration day.

In protest of MARXISM.

And most independent bookstores are wildly liberal in their politics (as well as having the rudest employees on earth!) He’s a total fake.

How common. (meant is an negative sense as can be meant)

I spent the afternoon in a number of local shops, including a book store - but not as a publicity stunt, but because that is my regular habit. I don’t do Black Friday and except for a bicycle for our 14yo (which is on lay away) I’m not doing big box stores this year at all.
