Obamas' anniversary lands on debate night

2012-10-03 15:01

Henderson — Forget about a date night. President Barack Obama and wife Michelle will be marking their wedding anniversary with a debate.

The couple's 20th anniversary is on Wednesday, the same day the president will hold his first debate with Republican rival Mitt Romney.

"Go figure," the first lady said in a recent television interview.

The president says he and his wife have planned a belated celebration on Saturday.

The Obamas will at least spend their anniversary in the same city, a rarity as both are frequently in battleground states in the campaign's final weeks. Mrs Obama plans to be in the audience in Denver when her husband takes the debate stage.

      I know someone who has so many wives they will never agree on a debate date

    NOT NEWS NOT NEWS NOT NEWS NOT NEWS. This is gossip, please keep it out of the news, and stop pushing mushy propaganda for Obama, it's getting seriously annoying, you treat him like a rockstar, he is a presidential candidate, and like his fellow mate Romney, a pretty terrible presidential candidate at that. Can't even find something good to say about his track record...

    Trust the MSM to continue printing feel-good stories about this clown. Obummer is on the way out, a one-term president like spineless Jimmy Carter

    I just watched the debate here in the USA and even the liberal media agree that ROMNEY WON hands down.Pres Obama seemed kinda lost without a telepromter.Obama is a great guy but Romney will make a much more efficient president.He also has a very real track record of big accomplisments.It's not Obama's fault that a gulleble electorate elected him.But it's time for him to go enjoy the rest of his still long life.Maybe he can do good things in Africa?
