WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama finally celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on Saturday - a romantic night on the town that came three days late after being pre-empted by a high-stakes presidential debate.
The first couple marked the occasion with a dinner for two at the Bourbon Steak restaurant in the Four Seasons hotel in Washington's upscale Georgetown section.
....The small pool of journalists who normally accompany Obama in his motorcade went along for the ride on Saturday's date night, but did not catch a glimpse of the couple during their two-hour, 20-minute outing.

What would you have ordered -- what is your bill?
Was there someone looking back across the table at Michelle? Was someone sitting in the chair?
[Credit Michael Kleinberg] - The new Bourbon Steak restaurant in Georgetowns Four Seasons Hotel has become a big draw on the D.C. circuit: former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev dined on the same night; Brad Pitt, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have been spotted there as well.
So much for “sacrifice.”
The dictator and his wife live it up on our money, while we go on food stamps and eat hamburger.
These two are pigs.
Was Obama stoned the same way he was stoned during the POTUS debate??? Two evil, horrible, hate America people!!! I see this low life Muslim Obama dining and celebrating with his wife, and then I see the four slaughtered and murdered bodies of our murdered Ambassador to Libya, two brave Navy seals and a fine intelligence officer, all killed because of a lack of support and care from the Obama White House!!! These people should not be celebrated, respected, they should be thrown out of office in disgrace and failure to our country!!!
No trip to Man’s Country?

Sub-Saharan, Muslim Slave Merchant, from Kenya, Obama, dreaming about his communist father, and dining on “our” nickel with his hate America, Black racist wife, Michelle just like the many tyrant leaders in the Middle East and sub-Sahara Africa!!! This, while millions of Americans, including millions of Black Americans are suffering from unemployment and tough times making ends meet. What dirt bags these people are!!!
I haven’t looked at the menu but my first thought was: How much did it cost US to shut down the whole elite hotel and the IN restaurant/bar to acommodate the Obama date?
How much more did we have to pay for this sham, I mean?
I wonder how much we all sacrificed to have these people act out this sham infomercial...all for a photo opp with stupid ice cream cups and neither looks impressed with each other, let alone intimate?
This would make a GREAT roadside billboard in the battleground states.
Also...did GWB and Laura do this? Did Clinton and Hillary? Does anyone have an example of blatant anniversary use of government resources to give the special couple this type of treatment?
That's right out of a movie!
I guess we should be grateful he didn't fly her to NYC this time for a date.
I think we ordered pizza from Pizza Hut delivered on our 20th, it’s hard to remember, that was 34 years ago.
Limousine Liberals “care” about the poor — they want “greedy, rich” Americans [small business owners/both parents working/holding down 2 or more jobs Americans] to cough up their “fair share” so that they can redistribute it and “grow” their base.
Now, now everyone......give these people a break. It’s not like there’s a whole kitchen staff of accomplished chefs at the White House or anything ....../s
According to “Dreams of my father” Their anniversary is on Nov. 10th.
Spreading the misery around: Obama “ live with it “ ..
” Limousine Liberals care about the poor “ ....... when it’s expedient and profitable to do so... other wise ignore the poor at the door.
*shakes head* because no time is a bad time for a Hussein photo op. Remember the Clinton “moonlight dance” pic? Is it a democrat thing to make a couples intimate moments photo ops?

".....2007 in Virginia: Senator Barack Obama, presidential stars in his eyes, speaking to a largely black audience of religious leaders and inciting racial animus........
....ten days before Obama gave that speech, Congress had waived the Stafford Act requirement for Katrina. He was well aware of that fact,too. After all, he was one of only 14 senators to vote against the waiver. It was part of a bill to fund the war effort in Iraq. That is,to pander to his Bush-deranged, anti-war base, Obama decided that squeezing New Oleans was a price worth paying. Then,he lied about what happened in order to foment racial resentmentan atmosphere that he calculated would help his presidential bid.
Just as hes doing today." - Obama Unfiltered [fomenting racial resentment]
Storehouses Continue to Send Supplies to Hurricane Katrina Victims - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Victims of Hurricane Katrina stay at the Astrodome stadium, where 16,000 evacuees received food and shelter, in Houston, on Sept. 4, 2005. [many were relocated to housing in the Houston area]
Ha! Good luck with that. :)
Bush was white and Christian and is a man of honor... so no.
Ceaucescu would be impresed. Only him was allowed to hunt wild hogs and fatten himself up while starving his people for the sake of the environment and discipline. MEH-Shell my behhhhl is her name...
So Mooch is going for the 1950s ice cream shop look, eh? Yeah, that'll romanticize the election and get your phony husband some votes, MO.
But you'll never, ever look as nice as Ann Romney, hon.
Click this link an you can see what Moochelle ordered (photo is top left)
No wonder the article didn’t have pictures.
He took care of 'that' in Denver.
'Rumor has it' that after AF One landed Barry hung around the Airport's Mens Rooms for a couple hours. He met someone that reminded him of Reggie LOVE and is why he was distracted that night ;-)
Just a rumor mind you.
Do they clear the restaurant of other patrons for this event?
My guess is ‘yes’.
Yes, because no one relates Democrats with marital fidelity or bliss. Adultery, homosexuality and sexual immaturity, yes, but living a chaste marriage, no.

Actually, the Royal Moo was so steamed at the Royal Idiot's debate performance and the likelihood that she would be tossed out of Castle Royal ... that it took three days before she would even speak to the slob.
Is that REAL???? ANYONE who would do that is DESTINED to be on the DOLE.....fools.
For our 10th anniversary there was no night out, no restaurant, no party. We had three children under 5 and were milking cows and farming full time.
DH bought me a coffee cup with a farm scene on it.
I still have it.
For our last anniversary we went on a family trip to Florida.
I think we are better off than the Obamas. Feel sorry for the kids.
Did Michelle actually eat steak? I thought she was more the seaweed and brocolli type.
We had planned a cruise but due to financial circumstances at the time, we instead had a “Moonlight Cocktail Cruise from Savannah to Daufuski Island aboard the “waving Girl” We danced aboard the boat, ate island delicasies on the dock at Daufuski and all and all thought it a very romantic anniversary. True love does not have to spend a lot of money.
That image should be spread far and wide...the people that would still vote for him in November are responsible, as well...never forget that.
Click the link in #32, it shows what Moochelle ordered.
Seriously? $10 for a spoonful of creamed corn or spinach or baked beans or a potato? Who pays $10 for creamed corn? Bully for the restaurant owner if he can scam the customers but he’s got some truly stuuuupid customers.
Romney might have been closer to the truth than he knows.
Oh, puleeze! Give him a break. This guy can't even remember what year he was born or what country he was born in and you expect him to remember his anniversary??? Besides, submitting the bill to the taxpayers is easier in October than it might be after Nov. 7th.
Reminds me of a bar in Denver long ago when a booming voice from a 5 foot guy under a ten gallon hat said: Set em up, when Duke drinks everyone drinks. Five minutes later he laid down a fiver and said, and when Duke pays, every body pays!
Scanning the wine list, no so impressed...frankly my wine cellar is better stocked. Still, wonder what his excellency chose to drink with his dinner. After his perfermance the other night, probably just had some 151 straight up.
The Emperor and Empress dine well while the peasants can barely afford McDonalds.
Ha! I guess if they pay it the steak house will charge it. There was no creamed corn served a this State Dinner.
