The president and the pirate
Photo by Pete Souza/The White House via the White House Flick Photostream.
This photo, in which speechwriter Cody Keenan plays the part of a pirate, was shot for President Barack Obama’s May 9 speech to the White House Correspondents Association dinner. It was shown as Obama delivered the line: “But as I said during the campaign, we can’t just talk to our friends. As hard as it is, we also have to talk to our enemies, and I’ve begun to do exactly that.”
