Obamas celebrate anniversary

← return to Out of Context

President and first lady Michelle Obama went out on another date the other night, this time to celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary, the Chicago Tribune is reporting.

They dined at the Blue Duck Tavern in Northwest Washington, between Dupont Circle and Georgetown.

You know, I think it’s great that the president and the first lady go out on dates and stuff, but I don’t want a report each and every time they do so. It kinda makes me feel like a stalker. And that’s one thing you don’t want to be — somebody who’s stalking the president.

But if they go someplace REALLY special, that’s something I’d want to know about. Someplace like, say, Rio de Janeiro. Or Havana. NOW we’re talking.

I suppose some people may be inconvenienced by the president’s motorcade and security detail whenever he takes his wife out on a date. But, hey, it gives them a good story to tell their friends the next day.

“We had to wait a full hour to get a seat at our favorite restaurant because the Obamas were there on a date. And when we finally did get served, they didn’t have any more lettuce for my Whopper.”
