I Want That Presidential LOVE!


For four years now some of you have been saying things like; “I want my Michelle or Barack,” “I want a love like theirs.”  There’s nothing wrong with wanting what you want but allow me to put some things in perspective for you. 

When you think about it we have no idea what type of love our President and the first lady have.  Yes we see the beautiful side of it, the great father, loving husband, down to earth woman and supportive wife, but what we don’t see is how they are behind closed doors.  Don’t get me wrong, I too find their love to be a beautiful one and sometimes wish I had my “Obama.”  Then I found myself thinking, what if the love we see isn’t the love they really have?  Would we still want our Michelle or our Barack?  What if they were exactly like the men or women we have or already had?  Would we still want a love like theirs?  

Everyone of us who’s been in a relationship know that it’s not an easy task.  Every relationship has it’s issues and it seems like (from what we can see) Michelle and Barack have worked very hard to keep their relationship together.  If you want your Michelle or Barack, here’s my suggestion and this can only work if the both of you want this kind of love and are willing to work for it.  You have to really communicate and work through your issues.  If you’re married, you have to remember the vows you took before God.  You can’t run when things get hard.  Let’s not get it twisted I’m not saying if he/she cheats on you repeatedly that you should stay.  That’s a clear sign that you and your partner are not on the same page and they obviously don’t want that Presidential Love.  You have to pick and choose your battles because every battle is not worth fighting.  If it took him 5 minutes to call you back instead of the normal 3, just let it go.  Don’t forget, just let it go (LOL).  

We see all the good stuff with Michelle and Barack but let’s not forget they both have a lot of lonely nights because of the positions they have.  Michelle just can’t call Barack at any moment and expect him to pick up the phone.  He may be in an interview, a debate, a meeting and of course running the country and she’s just as busy as he is.  That’s where the give and take comes in.  So you gotta ask yourself, What’s more important to you?  Having your man or woman there in arms reach all the time or having him away from you 60% of the time.  Their relationship may be so great because they don’t see each other as often as a regular couple do.  We all know that “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”  When you’re starring at the same person every single day, they’re bound to get on your nerves.  

Little do you know, you may already have your “Michelle” or “Barack,”  you just never know until you go through somethings together and make it out of it.  The grass isn’t always greener on the other side so stay on your side a little while longer, there’s a little Michelle and Barack in all of us we just have to find it and pull it out of one another.
