Obama Responds To Deaf Student Using Sign Language

As Stephon, a deaf student at Prince George Community College, would find out during a visit from the Commander-in-Chief, President Obama is not your average politician/rock star. He was standing in line after an event on energy policy with President Obama and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, waiting for a chance to shake hands with the President. What happened next is amazing. 

"When I got in, I took many videos," Stephon recounted via his YouTube page. "What amazed me is that it took two hours to make it just right before Obama started." After concluding his speech, the President began shaking hands and making his way through the crowd. It was there he met up with Stephon. "I am proud of you," he signed to the President. Not missing a beat, President Obama signed back, "Thank you." "When I shook his hand, it did not feel like he was superior to me. He was just a humble man. I am just impressed by him and know that he will have my vote and he will win a second term without a doubt," Stephon signed.

At this point, wouldn't it be more of a surprise to find out about something that President Obama can't do?
