No, this isn't photoshopped. That's President Obama, nerd-in-chief, wielding a lightsaber on the White House lawn.
The photo was taken as Obama picked up a toy lightsaber to fence with US Olympic Fencer Tim Morehouse during an event to promote Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olymipcs.
Naturally, the Obama lightsaber picture has inspired a series of amusing photoshop parodies and captioned pictures featuring Obama in various Jedi poses. Not to mention all kinds of wisecracks, like these from Digg users:
