    In politics and sports, it's the right that kicks and the left that supports.

    The President can show that no matter what is going on .In any cituation that he cares about children. That's why the health care for them was so important for him. But reguarding this photo ! His face clearly shows his worries .Maybe he was thinking about other things as other comments here suggest ? But to me shows that He still can remain calm too a bunch of children as they enjoy some soccer ! I watched as he was in Brazil ,and have friends from there ! They are people of God and good ! So American's shouldn't judge him .He is doing a Great thing here .Even as he is faced with a ton of problems ! Soccer is not as easy as most think ! I played in School it's fun and very hard! Now go ask Beckam.

    You put your right foot in,
    You put your right foot out,

    And you shake it all about.

    And you turn yourself around,
    That's what it's all about
