Pressy for President Obama

Since finding out that Barack Obama is a Spidey fan (Check him out on the front cover of the new issue (no. 583) of The Amazing Spider-Man comic) I thought that I'd send him one of my Spidey Pods prints as a welcom to office gift. I think it'll look good on the walls of the Oval Office, don't you?
After two terms with a super villain in power, let’s hope there will now be two terms of a super hero (fingers crossed).
As Spider-Man already knows, and President Obama is soon to find out, ‘with great power comes great responsibility’.

Obama was quoted last year in Entertainment Weekly as saying: “The guys who have too many powers, like Superman, that always made me think they weren't really earning their superhero status. It's a little too easy. Whereas Spider-Man and Batman, they have some inner turmoil. They get knocked around a little bit.”

Obama is a West Ham United fan too.
Well, he went to one of their football matches about 5 years ago.
