By now most twitter users know that if you ask, “How did Obama congratulate the U.S. soccer team?” The response would overwhelmingly be, “By tweeting a picture of himself!”
The president did not disappoint on Wednesday, tweeting this through the White House Twitter account:
President Obama calls @TimHowardGK and @Clint_Dempsey to congratulate @USSoccer on a great #WorldCup run. pic.twitter.com/1Dl8qh9Vtg

Twitter regulars have seen this before – many times – and couldn’t resist the snarky responses, such as these:
@WhiteHouse: Great. Since he has time on his hands could he now call Mexico and get our Marine back? @TimHowardGK @Clint_Dempsey @USSoccer

@WhiteHouse But he won’t call the families of those killed in Benghazi

@WhiteHouse @KristenFitzpat1 wish more pics like this circulate when we make STEM achievements. Like for teams that landed rovers on Mars?
