Amid one of the worst economic downturns in U.S. history, one would expect the President’s campaign trail to consist of speeches dealing with the tough issues Americans are facing. But the Obamas are using valuable time and energy to talk about something else: their first date.
The couple has released a video reminiscing about their first outing. The first lady recounts their day together, while the President smugly offers dating advice for men. The video of the Obamas is being used to promote Dinner with Barack.
The couple remembers how they went to look at art and then saw a film directed by Spike Lee, the director who put an elderly couple in jeopardy when he tweeted that their address was that of George Zimmerman.
It’s part of a strategy to improve the likability of the President, who has an abysmal track record. The video brings to mind highlights of the Presidents’ tenure: his appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” his singing of “Let’s Stay Together” and the time he killed a fly.
