    Wow, slow news day. But look how nurturing and delightful the Obama's are, I bet robins never took up roost when the republicans were there.

    CNN, with all the stuff that is going on in this country I find it unbelievable that you would even consider this article. What a waste of time, give us news, we don't care about the Obama bird.

    The media should respect the privacy of the Robin family.

    This is clearly a security threat to the White House and to the American people. Even if there is a 1% chance these chicks and thier mother are agents of a foriegn species hostile to The United States, they should be dealt with and eliminated.

    The entire process is a shame..... The American people and even the corporations are over taxed. WHY DOES THIS COUNTRY EVEN EXSIST? OVER TAXATION IN ENGLAND!!!!! And now the US is doing the same exact thing to the American people. There should be a flat rate of 10 – 15% tax of your yearly earnings. Maybe even 15 – 20% for businesses. No more of this crappy TAX system that not even the IRS can understand. And that 10 – 15% would be devided between Federal, State and Local. No more April 15th nightmares, and no more filing tax returns. Take it straight from the payroll and be done with it. But the government won't do this because they can't screw the American people if we have it down to a simple science, and that's what the government does best,,,, SCREWING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. We also need to liminate 50% of the government starting in Washington DC, to scale down the cost of running and throwing away the American tax payers money!!!!!!!!!!! I know this will never happen because I'm just joe the average American and what I say or think doesn't matter to this government!!!!! It doesn't matter if it's Obama or Bush or Reagan or even Kennedy. The American government has always screwed the American people.

    Can't wait for the GOP to find something wrong with this.

    Great videography. Life attracts life!

    Just look at all the renewal at the Obama White House: a passionate couple, smart and beautiful children, a dog, a garden, and baby robins!

    I know it's not hard-core news...or even political news, but I have to admit that I enjoyed watching the clip. And especially enjoyed the silence - no voice over! Wonderful to see the glory of spring and new life. And I learned something. I didn't know chicks that young could eat that much. That worm was pretty big. Good catch, Mom!

    zaoli, you are correct might be a slow newsday... Not here in Michigan though where the car companies are hanging by a thread and a real threat of being destroyed by the government. I will bet there have been plenty of robins at the white house during all presidential terms, the news just does not report any good news when republicans are in the white house. Even a reasonable thinking individual is on to that one.

    How cute is that? We have a Robin who returns every year. Once the babies leave the nest, she loves to show them off, parading them throughout our yard.

    Has CNN nothing better to post on its web-site? Has all other news stopped? I admit that it is cute and very springtime, however with all that is going on in our country and the world, get real!

    Wow, even cute little birds at the White House brings out the liberal hate.

    How cute! Even if it isn't hard news, sometimes you just need something to make you smile these days. This is coming from someone who have be unemployed for more than 10 months. I also enjoyed an earlier video of a mother duck and her babies at the White House.

    Seems to me the only hate being spewed is by the far right. I love the birds and the sybology of re-birth of this nation.
    Don't you?

  24. RNC = DNC = politics as usual

    @ michael "It's ok to smile sometimes"

    Thanks for your condescending permission. It is OK to smile but the world has serious problems and there are many Americans out there that still have a superhero view of Obama.

    Smiling in a fantasyland is fun but it does not make it reality. I hate to break it to you but all presidents in spring had little birdies flying around DC.
