The actual caption: President Barack Obama (R) pardons the National Thanksgiving Turkey in a ceremony in the North Portico of the White House in Washington, DC, November 23, 2011 with his daughters Sasha (C) and Malia (2nd R) as Chairman of the National Turkey Federation Richard Huisinga (L) holds the 45-pound bird named "Liberty".
