President Barack Obama blended his roles as dad and commander-in-chief on Christmas, spending time with his family and U.S. service members stationed in Hawaii.

Posing for a picture with the leader of the free world, one young American was far from intimidated. In fact, the youngster proceeded to maul the President's face!

No word on how the Secret Service handles situations like these, or if the little one was interrogated. Watch the amusing video of Obama and a hands-on baby below:

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama offered a special tribute to those who serve our nation and the families who support them unconditionally, while encouraging all Americans to give in their own way in his weekly address.

"Giving of ourselves; service to others – that’s what this season is all about. For my family and millions of Americans, that’s what Christmas is all about," he said.

"It reminds us that part of what it means to love God is to love one another ... to be our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. But that belief is not just at the center of our Christian faith, it’s shared by Americans of all faiths and backgrounds."

"So whatever you believe, wherever you’re from, let’s remember the spirit of service that connects us all this season – as Americans. Each of us can do our part to serve our communities and our country, not just today, but every day."

Here's Barack and Michelle's address to the nation:

Barack and Michelle Obama will appear on ABC's 20/20 tonight.

Barbara Walters, who says she may retire in 2012, conducted the interview with the First Couple and aired a preview of it yesterday on The View (below).

In the sit-down, Michelle Obama talked about the importance of prioritizing herself, even while married to the U.S. President, and sending the right message to the couple's two young daughters. Clearly, the family dynamic works for them:

This great exchange also happens at another juncture:

Walters: "What is your biggest peeve of each other?"
President Obama: "I don't have one."
Walters: "Aww."
Michelle Obama: "My list is too long."

Hey, at least the payroll tax cut extension passed.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he would deport President Barack Obama's uncle, who authorities say was arrested in August for DUI near Boston.

Onyango "Omar" Obama is, allegedly, an illegal immigrant.

In an interview with Boston radio host Howie Carr, Romney said "yes" when asked if "Uncle Omar" should be deported. Romney at first did not recognize the name, and was far from incendiary about it, saying simply that U.S. immigration laws should be enforced.

Take a listen to the exchange:

Onyango Obama is the 67-year-old half-brother of the commander-in-chief's late father, Barack Obama, Sr. His case is pending in Framingham, Mass., District Court.

He was initially held without bail by immigration officials on allegations he violated an official order to return Kenya issued 20 years ago but has since been released.

Matt Damon is at it again. Rekindling one of our favorite on/off A-list celebrity feuds, the actor is calling out President Barack Obama for his lack of balls.

His words.

The We Bought a Zoo star discussed his views on Obama during an interview with Elle, lambasting the President's perceived leadership shortcomings.

  • Matt Damon Hairstyle
  • The President of the United States of America

"I've talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician.'"

"You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better."

Ouch. But it continues ...

"If the Democrats think that they didn't have a mandate - people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they're pissed off," he says. "Just imagine if they had a leader."

Barbara Walters told President Barack Obama she's retiring next year, according to TMZ, which cites sources who heard Barbara say it to him personally.

The legendary TV figure (we can't say "journalist" after the Kim Kardashian sex tape footage she aired the other night) interviewed Obama on Thursday.

According to the source, during a break, Barbara leaned over to Obama and said, "I need one more interview with you because I'm retiring next year."

Walters' mic was on when she said it, and lots of people were listening ... but here's the thing. She's joked about retirement for years and years now.

Barbara still does specials for the network, in addition to The View. Her Most Fascinating People special generated enormous buzz as it always does.

Obama was not on the list, natch, while Steve Jobs (above) was #1.

Jeff Schneider, Sr. VP of ABC News, said "Barbara has joked that she is retiring every year" and "anyone who just did a day trip to Syria, 90-minute prime time special and an interview with the President and First Lady hardly sounds like someone retiring."

So, there you go. Walters, 82, is probably staying put.

President Barack Obama may be dealing with a stagnant economy, gridlock in Congress and reelection prospects that look increasingly tenuous, but you wouldn't know it here.

At home with his wife and daughters, he couldn't be happier.

The White House is has released a new family photo. Since Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, have grown so much since the last Obama family portrait, it was time for an update.

Posted on the White House Flickr account moments ago, the photo shows the President, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters sitting in the Oval Office, smiling:

Political views aside, that's a nice-looking First Family!

Even the leader of the free world needs his DVR.

He just got it installed, according to People Magazine, and on it are a pair of premium cable dramas. President Obama loves Showtime's critically acclaimed new spy thriller Homeland, starring Claire Danes, and HBO's Boardwalk Empire.

As for what he watches with the kids?

Obama Family

With its multi-cultural, 21st Century appropriate casting, Modern Family is the pick. Not just because it's a good answer, either - the show is pretty darn funny.

"For the girls and me, Modern Family, that's our favorite show," the Prez says.

Asked if they lets daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, use Facebook, Barack and Michelle Obama say they do not, but that it is not a hard decision to enforce.

Their theory is, "Why would we want to have a whole bunch of people who we don't know knowing our business? That doesn't make much sense," she says.

But when the First Lady points out the relatively young ages of their daughters, the President laughs and adds, "We'll see how they feel in four years."
