This marks by my count the 6th time the President and/or the First Lady have been in the neighborhood, plus he mentioned Pete's Apizza in one of his speeches. You can make the argument that Columbia Heights is the favorite DC hood of the Obamas (aside from downtown, maybe.) Suck it, other neighborhoods!
This event was a town hall hosted by Spanish-language TV network Univision, and the President "wooed Latinos" and answered questions about standardized tests. It sounds like some fun was had as well when he was asked by the moderator about his use of technology:
RAMOS: Do you have an iPad?Previously Obama signed a bill with Michelle at Tubman School, visited the Columbia Heights Youth Club with the First Lady, visited a charter school, also with Michelle, the First Lady went to the Upper Cardozo health center and jumped rope at Bell, and the President worked out at the Washington Sports Club, hence the above photoshop. And of course the President's mention of Pete's.
OBAMA: I do have an iPad.
RAMOS: Your own computer?
OBAMA: I’ve got my own computer.
RAMOS: Very well.
OBAMA: I mean, Jorge, I’m the president of the United States. You think I’ve got to go borrow somebody’s computer? “Hey, man, can I borrow your computer?”
