Pres. Obama Sets High Bar for Men

On Saturday night, President Barack Obama took his wife, Michelle, to Citronelle, a fancy DC restaurant.

President Obama is the leader of the free world.

He deals with:
A possible pandemic
A failing economy
Iraq war
Afghanistan war
Bailout fiasco
Picking a new SCOTUS justice
Ann Coulter
Bill O'Reilly
Joe Biden
Michelle's mom
Two young children
The Taliban
Global hunger
And immigration

Well, you get the point.

And he still MAKES time to take his woman on a date night!
I'm just sayin'‚ĶMEN: step ya game up! ūüėČ

    I know just what you mean. Juggling all those things and making time for his relationships. This has to get women thinking. I know it had me thinking...

    Why is there such an outcry about swine flu? It does not seem to be spreading nearly as fast as regular flu, the symptoms are not as severe, it does not last as long as the regular flu. Why is there such a constant bombardment of information about it. I am a schoolteacher and have seen ten times that many students have the flu and the schools never closed. What is the deal?

    Your story filed by Kate Balduan this morning about the homeless family leaves out one important component. Where is the father of these children? This is exactly what Bill Cosby is constantly talking about. The lack of responsibility by these absentee fathers has to be brought to the forefront. When a story presents the opportunity to highlight this failing in society, the moment should be seized.

    I saw this on the air, and I think it's really inappropriate to lump the Vice President in with Michelle's mom and the Taliban. He deserves his own special category.
