Is everyone missing the obvious?
It was his and the wookie’s anniversary.
How could he debate Romney when he when all he could think about was choking on a hairball?????
Reading that so soon after I ate...[hurl]......you never go full wookie. Even MO don't go full wookie.
I'm sure it had to have already been mentioned elsewhere, though I haven't seen it, but I think this speaks volumes about the real nature of their marriage together.
The debate schedules were put in place months ago. You don't think someone from Team Obama, particularly TOTUS or FLOTUS themselves, would've mentioned that Wednesday, October 3rd, was a landmark anniversary date (20th year) and the debate should be scheduled for another night?! OK, rule Monday out because of MNF, but why not Tuesday or Thursday?
Was avoiding going head-to-head against Dancing With The Stars, or some other vacuous tv show, more important than your 20th wedding anniversary?!
