    just look at those kids and how they respond to them. I love that they opened it to military families and local D.C. kids…and THAT is the reason why so many in ‘the village’ can’t stand the Obamas—-because, they open the WH up to THE PEOPLE

    Socialist Obama uses White House lawn to “share the wealth!”

  4. Obamas hand out Halloween treats at White House

    WASHINGTON — Turns out, the White House did not get egged.

    Trick-or-treaters marched up the White House driveway on a wet, snowy Saturday, past the spider web-like gauze, the pumpkins and the costumed actors to the mansion’s north portico where President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama handed out treats, an annual tradition.

    “What’s this? Look at this guy,” the president said at the sight of one costumed child. “A headless man. Terrifying!”

    And yes, the sweets included signature boxes of White House M&Ms, signaling a temporary respite from the first lady’s healthy eating campaign. Dried fruit and White House baked cookies rounded out the handouts.

    Earlier this week, in an appearance on the “Tonight Show,” Obama joked to host Jay Leno that he had warned his wife that if she wanted to avoid Halloween mischief she might want to dole out more than just fruit and raisins.

    “I told her the White House is going to get egged if this keeps up,” he said, suggesting that she might want to add “a couple of Reese’s Pieces or something.”

    In the spirit of compromise, a trait the president often says is all too rare in Washington, the M&Ms made it into the goody bags. Not exactly Reese’s Pieces, but close enough. (Truth be told, the M&Ms were included in the treats last year, too). The sweet dough butter cookies were baked by White House Pastry Chef Bill Yosses.

    The orange lights bathed the north portico as the president in black fleece jacket and slacks and the first lady in an overcoat greeted the parade of children. The Obamas were joined by the first lady’s mother, Marian Robinson.

    All three wished their guests happy Halloween and marveled at their costumes.
