Obama thanks families at congressional picnic

(CNN) - Just hours before the Supreme Court was to announce the fate of President Barack Obama's most significant legislative accomplishment, members of Congress from both sides of the aisle brought their families to the South Lawn of the White House on Wednesday night for the annual Congressional picnic.

The president addressed the bipartisan crowd on a stage set for the Marine Corps Band, and as he has done in years past, he made a special point to thank the political families in attendance.

  2. Wake up people

    A class act. Too bad the American people don't have the sense God gave them. Anyone that thinks Robmey could be half the man or President that President Obama is, is sadly mistaken.

    OBAMA 2012!
