WH Photo Of The Day: "Burgers With Obama"

The photo, above, of President Obama treating his debt-ceiling economic team to lunch on Wednesday at DC burger joint Good Stuff Eatery is today's White House Photo of the Day on the official blog. It was sent to e-mail subscribers to the White House list with the title Burgers With Obama. The photo continues a new tradition of highlighting the President's "just folks" eating excursions outside the White House, as Campaign 2012 builds out.

The Presidential dining images have included a photo of Mr. Obama visiting Ross' restaurant in Bettendorf, Iowa, featured on the WH blog onJune 29th. A photo of President Obama dining in Puerto Rico at Kasalta bakery was Photo of the Day on June 14th, and a photo of the President dining at Rudy's Hot Dog in Toledo, Ohio, was the Photo of the Day on June 6th. A photo of cheering staffers at Rudy's made it into the White House Flickr photo set for June.

In the photo at top, President Obama is with, clockwise from left, Bruce Reed, Chief of Staff to the Vice President; OMB Director Jack Lew; Nancy-Ann DeParle, Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy; National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling; and Rob Nabors, Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs.

President Obama was spotted with a burger, fries, a salad, and a bottled water on the table in front of him, for the record. He also offered one of the many milkshakes on the table to an 11-year-old boy seated beside his table (not visible in the photo).
