Videogames were the overwhelming answer President Obama received when asking a group of children what they hoped Santa Claus would bring them.
Obama was entertaining a group of children at a Washington D.C. Boys & Girls Club when he posed the question. TownHall.com reports that Obama was inundated with requests for games and consoles along with other electronic devices, such as cell phones and flat-panel television sets.
The focus on electronics prompted the President to ask, “What ever happened to, like, asking for a bike?”
This time around at least, the President took it easy on videogames, perhaps learning from calling them out in the past.
The President also reflected a bit on the actual meaning of the holidays, saying, “What’s important is what kind of spirit you have. So I hope everybody has a spirit of kindness and thoughtfulness.”
