Here's one demographic with which President Obama seems to not have much trouble: children. White House photographer Pete Souza regularly captures Obama playing with small visitors, saying: "Some are serious and some are humorous. And of course, some are with babies (since the President loves babies)."

As the President got ready to leave for the night, he told the Girl Scouts "You guys are having so much fun, but unfortunately, I've got to go to work." Some Girl Scouts were not pleased, but Obama quickly added "but we can have a group hug," and all 50 Scouts swarmed around him.
