On Saturday, President Obama took his daughters, Malia and Sasha, Chout for some early Christmas shopping at One More Books in Arlington, Virginia.
The other reason was to help promote an effort called “small business Saturday” which encourages shoppers to patronize mom-and-pop businesses after Thanksgiving instead of the large chains and box stores.
At the store, Obama held up his BlackBerry, apparently looking up a book title as he spoke with shop owner Eileen McGervey. He said “preparation” was the key to his shopping.
While there, Mr. Obama brushed off a reporter’s question about the looming “fiscal cliff,” saying “we’re doing Christmas shopping.”
The White House says the president bought 15 children’s books that will be given as Christmas gifts to family members.
