    I don’t want to distract from our lovebirds and Cinco de Mayo…..but I posted in the last thread where to see the stealth hellicopters……….but what I want you to see is this gallery of SEALS in training…….ohhhhh laaaaaaa.

    If you want more information do to the last post about the helecopter look at the last thread.

    My heart is pitter pattering and I am getting short of breath. These guys are hunks. Over 20 pictures of them.

      Sorry to go ahead in line but if you do venture over to see the SEALS………the first picture they are all grimy..but that’s what SEALS do…………….go to the one where they are in shorts under the water with their hands and ankles tied…not that part…….but just to see how manly they are.

        Why are you saying ‘do not click on the link’? Am I missing something? What I saw were a bunch of great looking guys, in fine shape, enduring strenuous training, obviously some of the bravest among us.

    Sooooooo Gorgeous! Pete Souza’s had quite the day too, hasn’t he? Exhausting just to think about it.

    I sense haters like Limbaugh and Palin barking about the first lady’s love for mexican foods…oh well they are gonna hate anyway!!! They both look so sweet together 🙂 What a lovely, affectionate couple…I love when the President teases her, too cute 🙂 🙂

      The First Couple can’t live for the haters. When Limbaugh and Palin and the rest of the garbage start looking like the Obamas – fit, glowing, happy, healthy – then maybe they can say something.

    I don’t know how this man does it. There is nobody else that multitasks the way he does. Nobody should wonder why his hair is gray/ Long sleepless nights, on the go days, he tackles so many things that we don’t know about. I keep him in my prayers daily. He looks handsome and Mrs. O looks lovely. Most beautiful first couple ever in my opinion.

      He has to be in fine shape, just like those Navy Seals. or he wouldn’t be able to handle these unbelievably jam-packed days. And as others have noted, he seems to always be “in the moment”, handling everything in the best way possible, with limitless style and class.

    Lisa they are gorgeous. 🙂

    Oh what a wonderful active couple. They are always going positive things and never forget a day of celebration for all the rainbows of the world. Not only do they work hard but they play hard too. 😆

    I love to see them laughing and flirting with each other. By favorite is photo 6. check out where he has his hand.
    I am so happy that he had a light-hearted event to host after the harrowing events of the past few days.

    Yeah, I like the third picture down, where they both appear to be joshing or perhaps flirting even, with each other. Ahhhhh ain’t they cute/ 🙂 🙂 🙂

    I always say that if I could bottle my little ones energy and sell it I would be rich, I think I will add our president to that list. He never stops! Wow!

    Thank you Chipsticks! I love to hear that man speak – he can make a speech sound so interesting, patriotic yet enjoyable all at the same time. If he doesn’t win by a landslide – we’ll KNOW something is up! They are the most loveliest couple in AMERICA.

    I swear these two need to get a room outside the whitehouse. Wow Michelle u look great no wonder Barack can’t keep his hands off of you.

      Why outside? There are enough rooms inside the whitehouse lol

      I believe the Obamas were playful like that in public before they came to Washington– at least, they were on the campaign trail. Besides, I think they like taking advantage of their “intimate moments” in public. It probably intensifies the few private moments they have to themselves. 😉

    Anyone else notice that POTUS has been looking less tired these past few days? I think the elimination of Bin Laden and the complete shutdown of his critics these past two weeks has taken a lot off of his shoulders.

    I love how they look at each other. Feel the love! 😀 🙂

    I LOVE to see them together. These are the photos I live for. Photo 6 is soooo beautiful. She has the most beautiful smile and his hand resting on her waist makes it Picture Perfect. I wonder what she said to him when he mention not wanting to be between her and a tamale? Whatever it was, it was extra cute.
    I live for these two.
    Thank for sharing.

    Good night POTUS and FLOTUS. I am so proud of you two.

    In the fifth shot (the solo picture of Mrs. O), FLOTUS has a dance pose similar to that of POTUS when he sat in “that chair” in Brazil to watch the children dance. :)I wonder if that is bringing back memories for them. It’s sure bringing back memories for me. 😉

    I truly love this couple, they are a breath of fresh air, I never so two people who you can feel the love they have for
    each other and the world, what the world need now is a little more love for each other, and I pray for them and their
    family each and every day of my life – 70 years and look and going strong!

    I caught up and finally watched the Cinco de Mayo video today. Another great speech by our POTUS! The part about the crowd cheering for the flags from the 181 countries of origin of the graduates at the ceremony was particularly poignant. I can not possibly adore this first couple any more than I do.
