How Obama is blocking out reporters and wrapping himself in a bubble so he can exercise ultimate control his public image

A photo of the Obamas hugging that was released on Election Day 2012 has become the world's most popular tweet on Twitter.

A dressed-up version of Barack Obama's State of the Union speech, packed with charts and graphs, is huge on YouTube. A playful picture of the president cavorting with a 3-year-old in a Spiderman costume is a favorite online.

It's all courtesy of the Obama image machine, serving up a stream of words, images and videos that invariably cast the president as commanding, compassionate and on the ball.

In this world, Obama's family is always photogenic, first dog Bo is always well-behaved and the vegetables in the South Lawn kitchen garden always seem succulent.
