It won’t be long until America is adorned with billboards of The One.
What with a Presidential election, two severe hurricanes, multiple mass shootings and a fiscal cliff, it has been a busy year for Barack Obama.
But at every twist and turn, his decisions, reactions and emotions have been captured in photographs.
Now, as 2012 comes to a close, the President has pulled together a collection of his favourite pictures for the year and posted them to the White House Facebook page for America to enjoy.
Many of the images of the world’s most photographed man were taken at campaign rallies.
Others were shot during down time, when the President and First Lady, Michelle Obama, could take a breather from their exhausting schedules.
A poignant photo of the First Couple embracing in the darkness after the President’s final campaign rally made Obama’s dozen favourite pictures, as well as one of the pair gazing at their home town, Chicago, from across the water.
