President Obama had an unscripted encounter with a bystander while shopping at a Washington, D.C. bookstore with his daughters last week. In the exchange, which was caught on video, an unseen man tells Obama "We hope you can close Guantanamo."

Obama looks toward the man and says "we're workin on it, thank you. Yep." After an awkward pause, Obama looks around and asks "Any other issues?" which evokes laughter from the crowd.

They then continue ringing up their books in a deafening uncomfortable silence.

The bookstore, Politics & Prose on Connecticut Ave, was purchased by Bradley Graham and Lissa Muscatine in 2011. The store's website notes "Brad was a longtime journalist with The Washington Post. His wife, Lissa, also worked as a Post journalist for a number of years, and then served as a speechwriter to Hillary Clinton at both the White House and the State Department."

Another message on their site states, in part,

"A bookstore is a precious thing, ever more precious in this age of the Internet, when the space for healthy discourse and debate too often gives way to high-volume hyperbole. But it is our belief that Politics and Prose will become an even more essential part of our Washington landscape, building on its foundation not simply as a bookstore but as a community forum and marketplace of ideas. At the same time, we cannot let our optimism obscure the realities of the book industry—particularly the twin challenges of online sales of physical books and the downloading of ebooks—that have eroded the revenues of many stores and increasingly threaten the future of brick-and-mortar establishments. Already in the past two decades, the independents have seen their ranks thinned by about two-thirds. And even the big chains are tottering, with Borders in bankruptcy and Barnes and Noble up for sale."

"...Nonetheless, we remain convinced that independents can and will survive, and few are better positioned to succeed than Politics and Prose... Our business is not just selling books but building community. A book can be bought anywhere; community can’t be... Around every successful independent bookstore, there are readers and writers engaged in thoughtful conversation and debate about important issues. It is our hope—indeed, a primary goal—to maintain P&P’s great tradition as a forum for discussion addressing the salient ideas of the day."
