President Obama and first lady try to explain how they keep the fire going in their marriage

Barack and Michelle Obama hug

Flushed with excitement from winning his 2nd term as president, Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for an intimate interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, which aired last night on “Nightline.”

The Obamas broke out in a fit of giggles when Walters asked them, “How do you keep the fire going?”

After sharing laughter with her husband, the first lady paused for a few seconds to ruminate before responding, “That’s a good question.”

I agree that it was a good question. It’s interesting that Mrs. Obama had to think hard before answering it.

“We’ve been married now 20 years, and like every marriage, I think you have your ups and your downs,” the president answered. “But if you’ve worked through the tough times, the respect and love that you feel deepens.”

It’s worth noting here that the president racked up a total of 21 hours playing golf, and only four (4) hours of family time during their 5-day vacation in Hawaii over the Christmas holidays. So if there is any ‘fire’ left in their relationship, it is drawn mainly from outside sources.

      :rofl: at Obama’s “golf-to-family-time” ratio! Half the reason for a vacation is to get away from your job, the other half is to get away from the wife and kids!

      Nothing the Prez of First Lady do or say will ever be good enough for Sandra. It doesn’t matter that we have a beautiful Black family heading our country and that they are good influences and are allowed to be human. I guess we should all strive to be like the Harris’ not the Obama’s? Praise the famous not the leaders? Nothing against the Harris clan cause i LOVE seeing TI as a family man but really

      5. He tells me to look back at it.
      6. He has a secret “red room” that yall on’t know about.
      7. I think about all the shade @Sandra Rose be trying to spew on us and it makes me fugg him even more.
      8. I think about all the :haters: that didn’t want him in office and we make LOVE to that.
      9. He loves these shapely legs and have you seen this :buttshake:

      I guess if you goin on and on about it then something aint right.

      Still, let’s not pretend she is remotely attractive for the sake of having a token “attractive dark skin girl.” We can certainly find a lot more attractive dark skin women than her.
