Obama Takes Romney's Concession Call: PHOTO


A new photo by Pete Souza posted to the White house Flickr account shows Obama taking Mitt Romney's phone call on election night:

The photo was taken in the presidential suite of the Fairmont Millennium Park hotel in Chicago, where Obama and his team watched results come in on November 6. In his concession speech, Romney said that on the call with the president, he wished Obama well, along with his family and staff.

  2. He didn't take off his shoes before walking on the carpet? That's it. We're through!

  4. "Obama has a big head."

    Well, that's a good thing, isn't it? Especially if one has long thick shaft attached to it. Yum, yum.

  6. Jesrad, I was just getting ready to post the same thing! That hotel room is decorated hidieously! Instead of calling it the presidential suite they should call it the 1970's suite.

  8. The interior looks great, haters fall back. Given the circumstances of the photo, another iconic image taken of the president.

  9. Correction: Obama actually received this call 4 months before the election.

  10. As great as this photo is, an even greater pic would've been of Mitt Romney making the call LOL

  11. I like this picture but I preferred to see Romney on stage admitting defeat with tears in his eyes ! The first thing that has EVER gone wrong for Martian Mitt in his entire life.
    BUT my favorite picture of all time has to be evil right wing lunatic former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher crying as she left Downing Street when her own party finally got the balls to stand up to her & kick her out ! That pictures stays with me FOREVER ! Sweet.
