Our President & First Lady made their first joint appearance on ABC's "The View" this morning during their 24 hour stint in Manhattan. Check out what America's First Couple had to say about lef at the White House after hours, plans for after the White House, and just how quickly Sasha & Malia are growing up...
First Lady Michelle Obama, looking amazing in a green full skirted sleeveless dress, appeared on "The View" with her Presidential hubby. Joy, Babs Walters, Sheree, Whoopi & Elizabeth all tossed both soft and hard questions at the duo for an entertaining interview.
A few of our fave highlights--
President Obama said that Michelle couldn't run for office in 2016 because her temperament wouldn't allow it. Mrs. O agreed saying her patience level isn't cut out for office like his. She also revealed she's one of the only people who can really make her husband mad.
When asked how they have managed to stay this close as they approach their 20 year wedding anniversary this fall, Prez O revealed that they actually spend more time together now than ever. Tanks to having access to Air Force one and Helicopter 1 he an be at the dinner table in minutes or hours as much as possible.
The First Family tried to have dinner together often and they now tuck each other in--something President O said he loved to do for his wife every night. But now, as Malia is getting older and staying up the latest doing homework, she's becoming a night owl like dad.
As for whether the President will be coaching daughter Sasha's basketball team again this year--he says yes and The Vipers will be undefeated once again. As for which is harder to manage--being President or a group of young girls, Obama said Sasha's b-ball team since THEY play like a team, pass the ball and offer high 5's to each other. Ha! Malia is into tennis now, by the way.
Barbara Walters asked the President if it would be disastrous if Romney won. His answer--Americans can survive anything. But we don't want to just survive, we want to thrive. It's all about whose policies will get us there, either you believe in building from the middle out, or from the top down.
As for what Mr. President plans to do post-presidency, he said, "The thing that I think I would enjoy most is spending time working with kids. I love teaching. I miss teaching, and I’m not sure necessarily it will be in a classroom, but the idea to be able to go around to various cities and help to create mentorships and apprenticeships and just giving young people the sense of possibility.”
