Back on Thursday, 2012 Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney and the rest of the USA women’s gymnastics team visited the White House and got a chance to meet president Barack Obama.

According to her Twitter page, Maroney sent out the below hint that she might have done her “not impressed” face with the president during a photo-op:

“Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?”

Only a few short hours ago, the White House Twitter page released the photo and if there could be such a thing as Internet gold, this picture would be it:

    When asked what do you think of this presidency? Answer we are not impressed. Honesty becomes you McKayla.

      I have to admit, the way George W. Bush managed to destroy the economy during his administration WAS pretty impressive. Most of us sane people aren’t all that anxious for an encore.

        Let me guess – you were one of those people who spent 2001-Jan. 19, 2009 in a bubble and then GASP, everything is wrong!!!!

        Most sane people realize that when you hit rock bottom, you can’t go back up overnight. Sorry that your ilk is just too busy hating America to actually want us to succeed and rebound. We’re well on our way up.

        So go cry about it for another four years, won’t you? Cheers!

        I straddle a line between pity and a feeling of dolefulness for those misguided souls who still blame President Bush for the current economic woes. These same folks will likely blame the congress when they see things getting worse over the next 24 to 36 months.

    Pretty damn hilarious. Obama will need this face when he has to go back to dealing with the do-nothing Congress.

      How come it wasn’t Congress’ fault during the Bush years, but now it is. You guys sense of reality is a joke.

        Because, moron, W. had a majority Republican congress during the first six years of his presidency.

        I really wish Congress would have been as concerned about starting war in the Middle East as they are about providing health care to United States citizens. But dems the breaks, right?
