Bonnie Asks: Is Presidential PDA Cute or Unpresidential?

Could First couple, Barack and Michelle be any cuter when they hold hands, hug, touch and exchange lovey dovey looks?

Or is all the presidential PDA just too unpresidential? After all, no one really likes to see their parents makeout, let alone show affection in public, and the Obamas are like our parents-in-chief?

ME, I vote all the way for Obama PDA. What do you think?

Peopel are so used to seeing these presidents and the wives looking uncomfortable with each other or looking as if they don’t really care to share the same space.

So, when folks see two people who behave like the Obamas,
holding hands, talking to one another, smiling they are a little shocked.

I don’t see any problem with holding hands. It’s not like they are smooching in public.

Everything he does is unpresidential. Calling a cop racist before he knew any facts, supporting the mosque at ground zero and then saying that’s not what he meant, parties with Paul McCartney and constant vacations and celebrity dinners. He is more interested in fundraising than leading. Poor George W. couldn’t go to Camp David without being vilified by the press. 2012 can’t come soon enough.

How stupid..President or not..he is still a husband ….Apparently he loves his wife, and when couples do this after being married for so long, it is just habit.. the question itself is really dumb..im sorry

all of them do it. remember when barbara bush kicked dad bush on the butt while they were walking and holding hands. it was affectionate so don’t get the wrong impression and son george always held laura’s hand. you just point this stuff out because you hate obama and you want to make everything they do look bad the man can’t ever do right when everything you see is wrong. i feel sorry for him i know now no other black man will ever want this job after you finish tearing him down. for once during his presidency i hope he is 4 year president because i know he wishes he had an idea how horrible people can really be before he subjected his wife and family to this. i’d like for him to be like bush just leave it all a mess for the tea party to fix since they know so much.

I haven’t heard about them showing much PDA’s in public. Here she actually looks embarrassed at being photographed holding hands. This is a non-story.

Take a close look at the expression on Michelle’s face. Looks like one of disgust to me – I don’t think it was a romantic moment – the holding hands thing is good….
