The Obamas
Washington, Oct 4: The First lady of the United States of America (USA) Michelle Obama might have received the "worst" marriage anniversary gift on Wednesday, Oct 3 when her husband, US President Barack Obama was engaged in a public debate with his rival Mitt Romney.

Hours before much anticipated debate between Obama and Romney, Michelle was quoted as saying, "I told Barack, 'This, you know, attending a presidential debate on my 20th anniversary is probably the worst way for me to spend (it).'"

The first couple had postponed their 20th marriage anniversary celebration as the critically important first debate was scheduled to be held on the same day which marked their wedding anniversary.

However, the president did not upset his wife as he expressed his love for ladylove before starting his high-stakes debate with Romney in Denver. Addressing his wife, the President said, "A lot of points I want to make tonight, but the most important one is that 20 years ago, I became the luckiest man on Earth because Michelle Obama agreed to marry me."

"I want to wish you happy anniversary, and a year from now, we won't celebrate it in front of 40 million people," added the President who began his day with a romantic tweet addressing his wife saying, "Twenty years ago today, I married the love of my life and my best friend. Happy anniversary, Michelle. -bo."

The Obamas were married on Oct 3, 1992. Still after celebrating their togetherness for twenty long years, the first lady declined to offer a critique of her husband. She said, "I really would probably be the worst person to assess his style or his techniques."

Despite her comment on their "worst" anniversary celebration, the first lady was thrilled over the public debate. Expressing her thrill and nervousness, Mrs Obama said, "I get so nervous at these debates. I would not have chosen this, but I'm excited about it."
