Barack Obama and his wife Michelle surprised visitors at the White House Tuesday, as tours of the US presidential residence resumed after an eight-month break sparked by government budget woes.
"How are you! So good to see you," the president said, welcoming visitors to the state rooms of the mansion in the heart of Washington.
He and the first lady, accompanied by their dogs Bo and Sunny, shook hands and chatted for several minutes with tourists who appeared shocked and thrilled, according to a video posted on the White House web site.
