President Obama magically calms crying baby. Video:

Via on Jun 21, 2011

Human Interaction of the Day.

I’ve watched this three times, now. There’s something funny and delightful about seeing a man’s effect on a real-life baby—now if only dealing with complainers on the left and right were so “easy.”

From Gawker: Obama is a Baby Whisperer.

“You okay, baby?” he shouts in the crying baby’s face. “Come on, baby. You won’t cry.” He lifts the baby out of wife Michelle’s arms. It stops crying. I can’t believe that actually worked.

    I always think that babies can sense intention, anxiety & attitude. I know that mine are super squirmy and uncomfortable when I have a lot on my mind or am distracted. They are like emotional barometers. So, I'm impressed with the President's ability to calm an agitated child… and he does have a good mama bounce going even after all those years.
