What game did President Obama buy for X-Mas? Just Dance 3

Pres. Obama may be the leader of the free world and a man whose decisions can make or break this great nation of ours, but he’s also the parent of two children. And in a move that’s equal parts heartwarming and planned PR stunt, the President did some last minute holiday shopping today. When his trip brought him to Best Buy’s videogame aisle, after passing PS3s and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, he came to the choice many parents made this year: Just Dance 3.

See everyone, the President’s just like us. His kids like dancing games, so he buys them dancing games. Still, as we saw the President fill the same frame as Twilight Princess and Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, we were hoping he’d pick that up instead. Just imagine him in a four player Kirby match with John Boenher, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. Obviously Boehner would be King Dedede.

Anyway, Obama joins millions of others that bought Just Dance 3 this year, as its sales on the Wii alone were more than Skyward Sword’s last month. And now that the dancing series has spread to PS3 and 360, there seems to be no stopping its populist message of fun dancing and hope. If that hasn’t sold you on the game, how about some Wii-exclusive Mario DLC?

    I honestly don't blame him. Who could make a good choice with all those motherf**kers snapping their cameras?

    I'm not too sure he's fit to lead then...the POTUS is supposed to keep calm in all situations, but letting the damn paparazzi cloud his vision and make him pass several good games for Just Dance 3? I'm worried now.

    If my dad was the president of the united states I would be pissed if all I got for christmas was a videogame. Dear Santa, I would like to have New York please, I will be extra good this year, I promise!

    His kids were probably watching tv and now know what they are getting for christmas. The damn news ruined it!

    How in the world did make it through the purchase without getting asked about disk replacement or getting hit up for financing (even for a game). I guess having a secret service detail is the only way not to get harassed and fleeced when shopping at best buy!

    No disrespect to your political beliefs, but Rapture falls because of Andrew Ryan's objectivist policies.

    I know it's older but he should have got Bioshock. He might learn a thing or two.
