"Lets Not Do this in Front of the Cameras"
Obamas share private moment in public eye

Posted: April 9th, 2010 09:20 PM ET

From CNN White House Correspondent Dan Lothian

Washington (CNN) - On the driveway right outside the White House briefing room, a place where President Barack Obama rarely strolls during public hours, CNN caught a rare and personal exchange between the first couple.

Flanked by Secret Service agents and personal aide Reggie Love, Obama spotted his wife near the West Wing entrance and tried to get her attention. "Hey FLOTUS," he shouted, then added, "I was just looking for you." FLOTUS is the acronym for first lady of the United States.

As CNN photojournalist Bill Alberter videotaped the encounter, the president joked, "Stop it guys, I haven't seen my wife in a while."

The first lady, who seemed poised to deliver an affectionate greeting, was thwarted when the president said, "Let's not do this in front of the cameras."

Instead they held hands and walked together into the West Wing like a married couple that had not seen each other since one of them made a quick jaunt to Prague to sign a new nuclear arms treaty.

1. Why not?! You know I'm hoping Michelle gets pregnant while in the White House.
I know I'm awful...but I just want to see FOX News go----"For shame, they have sex in the White House."

2. The biological clock is running out
but as much of a distraction as it could be, it could be worth +10 points on the old approval ratings.

9. You know, you might be right.
I just had a thought of sending some fertility pills as a gift to the White House now. :D Dems have kids.

17. No kidding.
She's 46 years old. Why would anyone want to wish pregnancy on someone that age? I know several people her age who are GRANDMOTHERS.

GOP senator during the hearings, "doesn't this man know that presidents don't have sex with their wives, they have sex with prostitutes, it's just the way things have been done! If we knew this was going to be going on in the White House, we wouldn't have voted him into office!"

(that last part is my laughing about these Obama-hate forwards I get that claim that these people who wrote them actually voted for Obama! lol.... right)

13. Aww, they are a cute couple. Good to see a couple in the WH that truly loves each other.
I think poor Laura wanted to get away from W. as much as possible.

18. I can't say I blame her
If I had to wake up next to THAT, I'd want to escape as much as possible, too.

23. I can't even imagine...
I think I'd wake up to a Vicodin smoothie and spend the rest of the
day curled up in one of the seats in the White House movie theater.

Laura looked dazed during most of W's tenure--so my suspicions
are probably accurate.

24. It would take more than Vicodin for me
But then again, I would never have married a man like him in the first place.

When I found out that he was running for President, I asked my husband if he was the same GW Bush caught picking his nose at a televised baseball game. When my husband replied in the affirmative, I knew we were in trouble if that creature was ever elected.

19. I dunno. Still no rumblings of divorce down in Dallas.
She probably knows the BFEE would call in the most evil, twisted, crooked, bat-shit insane divorce lawyer for dubya, and Laura probably wouldn't even get to keep her rather dowdy wardrobe. No comfortable post-divorce life for her, and she knows it. She'll stay married to the gravy train...

14. Amazing that they feel others should not have the right to
make a family as they do.

15. If CNN wans to film a "sexy" encounter, they should shoot John King giving a blowjob
to any number of Republicans.
