First Lady Michelle Obama introduces President Barack Obama at a DNC fundraiser at Gotham Hall, September 20

“This is like our date night,” Michelle Obama said. She thanked organizers for the “intimate” 400-person dinner, at which singer Alicia Keys performed for donors who anted up at least $2,500 each. “Who knows what will happen?”

The first lady said people often ask her if the presidency is taking a toll on her husband. “The only difference I can think of is the salt is starting to catch up with the pepper” in his hair, she said. “I think it’s quite sexy.”

As she spoke about meeting her husband decades ago in Chicago, she said: “That’s the same man who won me over all those nights ago.”

When President Obama himself took the stage later, he declared that he was “in a New York state of mind” but he also seemed to be in an affectionate state of mind.

“She’s not bad. Do you notice how she’s getting cuter,” Obama said. “She is remarkable.”

He called the event “the closest we get to a date,” though he said could perhaps arrange a real date “in about 14 months.”

“This is not my idea of a date night,” he added later. “Normally our dates don’t end with me being before 400 of our closest friends.

President Obama greets people in Decorah and Guttenberg, Iowa, Aug. 16, during his three-day economic bus tour

From yesterday:

****

Globe Gazette: Cheers erupted on the downtown street as President Barack Obama emerged from the Hotel Winneshiek this morning.

About 100 people lined the streets around 8:30 a.m. to greet the president, who wore brown pants and a blue and white-checked shirt.

Obama worked his way through the group; shaking hands and giving some high fives to children perched on their parents’ shoulders.

“Welcome to the ‘50s,” said one crowd member, drawing laughter from other bystanders in his reference to the picturesque small downtown.

“We love you, we’re behind you,” a woman called out.

Obama joked about his graying hair with some crowd members, telling them about an old campaign flyer someone had showed him on this tour of the Midwest.

“I looked so young,” he said.

After a few minutes of greeting residents, Obama boarded a large black bus and the motorcade left to continue Tuesday’s tour.

People lined the streets to watch the presidential motorcade leave town. Some people waved, some cheered, and one man gave a thumb’s up. Just outside town, workers at a diner held up letters from the marquee spelling out, “Obama.”

The president is headed to Peosta for a summit on rural economies and job creation, scheduled for later today.

Thanks Dotser 😉

“i have no problem with folks saying obama cares. i do care.”

Chatfield, Minnesota, August 15

ABC: At a town hall meeting on the first stop of his Midwest bus tour, President Obama brushed off criticism of his health care overhaul, which many Republicans commonly deride as “Obamacare.”

Today the president was referring to The Afffordable Care Act, which he pointed out is “also known as Obamacare.”

“By the way, I have no problem with folks saying Obama cares. I do care,” Obama said.  “If the other side wants to be the folks that don’t care, that’s fine with me.”
