President Barack Obama got a little help in the romance department this week from comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
The president recited a love poem on the talk show that he said he had planned to deliver to the first lady in person.
Standing in front of a red curtain surrounded by bouquets of red roses and white lilies, with a little mood music playing in the background he said:
Somebody call the Situation Room because things are about to get hot. Michelle, this Valentine’s Day I’m going to treat you right.
I’m going to make you some zucchini bread. Then I’ll spread out some veggies on a plate just the way you like them.
Then I’ll give you a massage while you watch Ellen’s Design Challenge on HGTV. Because I love you so much, I Obamacare about you more than you even know.Advertisement
After finishing the ‘poem’ Obama added:
Michelle, I’ve made a lot of great decisions as president. The best decision I ever made was choosing you. Thanks for putting up with me. I love you.
The first lady had surprised her husband earlier in the broadcast by popping up on tape to recite her own poem:
Roses are red, violets are blue, you are the president and I am your boo.Advertisement
Today is their final Valentine’s Day as president and first lady – hope you have a good one guys.
